JDC Group further increases revenues and earnings

- Revenues increase by around 18 per cent to EUR 52.5 million in the first half of 2019

- EBITDA increases by 18 per cent in the first half-year and by 57 per cent in the second quarter

- Additional contract wins in the outsourcing segment expected in the second half-year

 

JDC Group AG (ISIN DE000A0B9N37) has confirmed the success of the Group's strategy in the first half of 2019 with the figures released today.

Revenues increased by around 18 per cent to EUR 52.5 million (H1 2018: EUR 44.5 million). Revenues of the Advisortech division increased by around 22 per cent to EUR 44.4 million. The Advisory division increased its revenues by around 6 per cent to EUR 12.9 million.

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose by roughly 18 per cent to EUR 2.4 million (H1 2018: EUR 2.0 million). When looking at the second quarter in isolation, the EBITDA grew by 57% to EUR 0.84 million (Q2 2018: EUR 0.53 million).

The positive performance results primarily from an increase in revenues and earnings in the Advisortech segment. The outsourcing agreed with Sparda Bank Baden Württemberg and Rheinland Versicherung has started successfully and will contribute even more significantly to sales growth in the second half of the year. The first half-year does not include any revenues from the cooperations with comdirect and BMW.

"We are fully satisfied with the development in the first half of the year", Ralph Konrad, CFO of the JDC Group, says about the figures. "The fact that we also experienced double-digit growth in the second quarter and were able to scale the earnings, although we have not yet processed any earnings from BMW and comdirect, shows that we are on a stable growth course."

"In the coming weeks and months, we intend to go live with additional outsourcing projects using our market-leading settlement platform and gain new key accounts", adds Dr. Sebastian Grabmaier (CEO). "With this, we ultimately intend to establish JDC as an outsourcing partner for large financial intermediaries in Central Europe. In the long term we want to become the market leading provider for the settlement of private client insurance business for brokers, large brokers, banks, company-affiliated brokers and insurance sales companies."

The significant key figures for the second quarter and first half of 2019 are as follows:
