Scherzer & Co. AG: Half Year Results 30.06.2012
Scherzer & Co. AG / Key word(s): Half Year Results/Half Year Results
Successful H1 2012 for Scherzer & Co. AG
Scherzer & Co. AG closed the first half of 2012 with a positive result. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) amounted to EUR 1.83 million (EUR 1.98 million) and earnings before taxes (EBT) came to EUR 1.92 million (EUR 2.07 million).
EUR 3.06 million in profit was generated from equities, which accounted for the lion's share of the H1 result. Earnings from option writer's positions amounted to EUR 0.44 million and earnings from dividends to EUR 1.03 million in the first half of the year. This was offset by write-downs of EUR 2.54 million that were due to the balance sheet date. Interest totaled EUR 0.1 million and operating expenses came to EUR 0.47 million.
On July 18, 2012, the Company's 10 largest equity positions are (in order of equity value on July 18): hotel.de AG, Generali Deutschland Holding AG, GK Software AG, IBS AG, Biotest AG, InVision Software AG, Highlight Communications AG, W&W Wüstenrot & Württembergische AG, Rhön-Klinikum AG and Exceet Group SE. They represent around 56% of the total portfolio.
At the end of the first half of 2012, Scherzer & Co. AG had rights to additional payments (additional compensation entitlements) corresponding to a total delivery volume of EUR 74.2 million or a delivery volume of EUR 2.73 per equity. These are potential claims resulting from evaluation proceedings (Spruchstellenverfahren) following structural measures implemented by stock corporations. None of the rights to additional payments are recognized in the balance sheet and therefore are accounted for at 0 in the Company's books.
Based on an equity price of approximately EUR 1.01, the Scherzer & Co. AG share is traded around 21% below the value of the portfolio positions at July 18, 2012 (rights to additional payments are not taken into account in the portfolio valuation), taking into consideration the Company's liabilities.
Management continues to expect a volatile market environment in full year 2012. Continuing insecurities in the Eurozone, combined with worries about the global economy, still make it impossible to prepare a precise earnings forecast for the current fiscal year. The Management of Scherzer & Co. AG has positioned the Company in a number of promising investments, which it closely monitors and adjusts if necessary.
