comdirect raises earnings target 2019

  • Expectation for the full year increased to more than EUR185m before tax (previous expectation: more than EUR170m)
  • The reason is a significant increase in core business profit in the third quarter of 2019

Quickborn, 8 October 2019. comdirect bank AG anticipates a pre-tax profit of approximately EUR175m based on preliminary numbers for the first nine months of 2019. Therefore, the expected group pre-tax profit for the full year improves to more than EUR185m (previous expectation: more than EUR170m before tax).

The reason for the adjustment of the expectation is the strong preliminary pre-tax profit from continuing activities (core business without ebase) of approximately EUR30m in the third quarter of 2019. As a result of increased total income and decreased administrative expenses, the operating profit was significantly higher than in previous quarters. In addition, a higher result from discontinued activities (ebase) was achieved. "Since the announced sale of ebase in mid-2018, we have invested even more in growth and scaling our business model. This is now reflected in a significantly improved result in the third quarter", says Arno Walter, CEO of comdirect bank AG. "Customer growth also remained at a high level with 46k new customers in the third quarter. As of the end of September comdirect has 2.7m customers."

Details regarding the comdirect monthly figures published today can be found in a separate press release from 8 October and at www.comdirect.de/presse.

Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv

Die Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. weist aktuell eine Effektivverzinsung von ca. 14 % auf. Da es sich hier quasi um eine Immobilien-Anleihe handelt, ist das Anleiherisiko überschaubar. Insgesamt verfügt die German Real Estate-Gruppe über 6 Objekte, 24 Bestands- und 22 Handelsobjekte, womit eine Kombination aus stetigen Einnahmen und attraktiven Entwicklerrenditen erreicht wird. Wir stufen die Anleihe als stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv ein.
