Sustained growth in profit
 
  • Group revenue totals EUR20.1 million in first nine months
  • Consolidated profit for the period doubles to EUR0.4 million
  • Success with specialist retail merchandise "TY", "Pummel & Friends" and "Snoopy"
 
Münster, 23/10/2018. United Labels AG recorded Group revenue of EUR20.1 million (prev. year: EUR22.9 million) in the first nine months of 2018. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) totalled EUR1.8 million (prev. year: EUR1.8 million). Fuelled by high-margin revenue generated within the Special Retail segment, EBIT rose by 7.7% to EUR1.4 million (prev. year: EUR1.3 million).
Consolidated post-tax profit doubled to EUR0.4 million (prev. year: EUR0.2 million) in the first nine months of the current financial year.
 
The Group further expanded the share of revenue generated within the Special Retail segment in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal, up from 53.4% of total revenue in the same period a year ago to 60.7% in the first nine months just ended. In Germany, this segment serves existing and new trading partners with merchandise centred around the "Pummel & Friends", "Ralph Ruthe" and "Snoopy" licences. This was underpinned by buoyant sales of the "TY" brand in Spain and Portugal.
 
In addition to supplying goods to retail partners via a B2B shop, the Group markets selected product lines to end consumers through the proprietary online stores of Elfen Service GmbH, which continued to record solid growth in both revenue and earnings during the first nine months.
 
As regards the final quarter of the financial year, the Group is confident of a positive business performance in the upcoming Christmas season. Order backlog at the end of the third quarter was EUR9.1 million. Additionally, purchase orders attributable to the Special Retail segment are generally processed as soon as they are received and goods are delivered directly from stock.

Die Übernahme des Katamaran-Herstellers Privilège bringt die HanseYachts AG dem Umsatzziel von 200 Mio. Euro einen bedeutenden Schritt näher. „Der Katamaran-Markt ist das derzeit am stärksten wachsende Segment im Yacht-Geschäft. Privilège ist weltweit in Preis und Qualität die Nummer eins“, so CEO Dr. Jens Gerhardt. Zudem sei der Deal ein wichtiger Faktor, um die EBITDA-Marge auf 10 bis 12 % zu steigern.

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
