JDC Group AG starts the year with strong growth

- Q1 revenues increase by 17% to EUR 31.4 million

- EBITDA increases by 24% to EUR 2.2 million, EBIT by 34% to EUR 1.1 million

- Outlook for 2020 remains positive, guidance confirmed

 

JDC Group AG (ISIN DE000A0B9N37) demonstrates the effectiveness of the Group's growth strategy with today's release on the performance in the first quarter of 2020.

Consolidated revenues increased significantly in the first three months of 2020, by around 17%, to EUR 31.4 million (Q1 2019: EUR 26.8 million). Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose by roughly 24% to kEUR 2,195 (Q1 2019: kEUR 1,775). Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) rose by around 34% to kEUR 1,091 (Q1 2019: kEUR 816).

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, JDC was also able to report the successful conclusion of two further collaborations: Firstly, Boehringer Ingelheim Secura Versicherungsvermittlungs GmbH (BI Secura), the in-house broker for the pharmaceutical group Boehringer, has concluded an exclusive cooperation agreement with Jung, DMS & Cie. for the management of employee transactions. Secondly, InsureDirect24 Assekuranz GmbH, the general agency for Nürnberger Versicherung that serves the direct customers of the Nuremberg insurance group, will in future handle processing and billing for its customer contracts using the JDC platform technology.

"We are fully satisfied with the development in the first quarter", says Ralph Konrad, CFO of JDC Group AG, about the company's figures. "The current platform is growing very nicely while maintaining a stable cost base. Additional key clients will "go live" over the course of 2020. With the resulting increase in gross profit, earnings in the Advisortech division will scale further. Our Advisory division has also met our expectations in full in the first quarter and shown significant improvement."

At the end of the quarter, the equity ratio rose to 34.9% from 29.8% at the end of the year.

The key figures for the first three months of 2020 are as follows:

"In spite of the coronavirus crisis, the company's results for the first quarter of 2020 were very encouraging and confirm our growth forecast", says Dr Sebastian Grabmaier, CEO of JDC Group AG. "All in all, our business has been able to navigate remarkably well through this crisis. Even in April, when comprehensive 'social distancing' measures brought many parts of social and commercial life to a standstill, the number of applications for new business still exceeded prior year's level. The number of contracts transferred onto our insurance platform in April even tripled. I would like to thank our employees in this respect, who have demonstrated both strong commitment and great flexibility and creativity in dealing with this crisis."

In 2020, the company expects revenues to increase to EUR 125 to 132 million, based on cooperation agreements that have already been signed, and also expects to see a further increase in EBITDA. If the effects of the COVID-19 crisis lead to a severe recession or an additional period of lockdown, this could of course also have an impact on the business development of JDC Group AG.

The interim report for the first half of 2020 will be published on 20 August 2020.
