EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) as well rocketed by around 35 percent and totalled EUR 2.3 million, compared with EUR 1.7 million in the same quarter of 2021. Consolidated net profit grew from EUR 1.2 million to EUR 1.8 million, which was a year-on-year increase of a substantial 52 percent.
JDC reported major successes in the first quarter of the year:
Jung, DMS & Cie. PRO GmbH, a JDC Group AG company, signed the contract with the subsidiary of the R+V insurance group, based in the German city of Wiesbaden. R+V, the second-largest insurance group in Germany, will use the JDC insurance platform as a white-label service along with the customer administration system iCRM and its own retail customer smartphone app for a hybrid intermediary model within the cooperative banking group, Genossenschaftliche FinanzGruppe. The collaboration offers great potential for JDC.
Furthermore an agreement was signed with Gothaer Insurance Group on an extensive and long-term collaboration to establish a 360-degree portfolio view for customers of the company’s own agency business. JDC is providing the platform and the interfaces needed to offer customers of Gothaer an overview of their entire insurance portfolio. Policies from insurance companies outside the Gothaer group will be made visible with the aid of JDC’s own portfolio and administration system, iCRM. The benefits for Gothaer cover the entire value chain, from contract administration and commission accounting to the service centre.
‘We are very satisfied with the first quarter of 2022", Ralph Konrad, CFO/COO of JDC Group, comments on the quarterly figures. "Actually, we rather expected a rather subdued start to the year after the cut in guaranteed interest rates of new life insurance contracts, as sales volume was moved up in time to benefit from better conditions for clients 2021. The fact that we have nevertheless grown so significantly across all areas - including our life insurance business - shows the increasingly broad acceptance of our platform.
„Our target group of intermediaries has so far included brokers, major brokers, distributors and banks. The recently won tenders show that we are increasingly becoming an IT and processing partner for insurance companies as well," adds CEO Dr Sebastian Grabmaier. "While our pleasing growth is currently being driven by the breadth of our broker base, we will very soon be able to generate additional revenues from our new co-operations with savings banks, cooperative banks and insurance companies. We are therefore sticking to our ambitious growth targets despite the current market environment, which is not getting any easier, and we want to become the largest insurance platform in Europe!
The key figures for the first three months of 2022 are as follows:
For the further course of 2022, we confirm our positive assessment and the published guidance: In 2022, the company expects revenue growth to EUR 165 million to EUR 175 million and EBITDA of more than EUR 11 million on the basis of already concluded cooperations.
