    GRENKE AG: GRENKE on track with first quarter - pick-up expected in second half-year

    DGAP-News: GRENKE AG / Key word(s): Quarterly / Interim Statement31.05.2021 / 06:59 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.GRENKE on track with first quarter - pick-up expected in second half-year- Net profit of EUR 14.0 million in Q1 2021 (Q1 20201: EUR 19.7 million)- Cost-income ratio at 51.2% (adjusted for extraordinary consulting and audit costs: 46.0%)- Markets expected to pick up in the second half of the year, resulting in stronger new business- Business forecast for 2021 reaffirmed: New leasing business of EUR 1.7 to 2.0 billion, net profit in the range of EUR 50 million to EUR 70 million and equity ratio > 16%Baden-Baden, May 31, 2021: GRENKE AG, global financing partner for small and medium-sized enterprises, generated net profit of EUR 14.0 million in the first quarter of 2021 (Q1 20201: EUR 19.7 million) despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic."This is a respectable result. The pandemic has hit the global economy hard, and still GRENKE is proving to be more than robust, even in these challenging times," said Antje Leminsky, Chair of the Board of Directors of GRENKE AG, in her comments on the business performance in the first quarter of 2021.Chief Financial Officer Sebastian Hirsch adds: "We are on track. Now we need a return to normality to grow our business again. We expect our new business to pick up in the second half of the year."The cost-income ratio (CIR) was 51.2% (Q1 20201: 43.7%), and thereby exceeded the full-year target of below 50%. This is mainly due to the extraordinary consulting and audit costs of EUR 6.7 million for the first quarter as a result of the special audits. Adjusted for these non-recurring expenses, the CIR is 46.0%. Consulting and audit costs in the first quarter of 2021 came to a total of EUR 11.2 million (Q1 20201: EUR 3.9 million). As a result, selling and administrative expenses increased 27.5% to EUR 25.2 million in the reporting period (Q1 20201: EUR 19.8 million). Staff costs remained stable at EUR 31.7 million (Q1 20201: EUR 31.7 million).The steady payment behaviour of customers had a positive effect in the first quarter of 2021, resulting in risk provisions of EUR 44.6 million, which was 21.7% lower than in the same prior-year quarter. The corresponding loss rate in the first quarter of 2021 was 2.0%.The GRENKE Group's total assets amounted to EUR 7.2 billion as of the March 31, 2021 reporting date (December 31, 2020: EUR 7.3 billion). The largest balance sheet item - non-current and current lease receivables - decreased by 3.1% to EUR 5.5 billion as of the reporting date (December 31, 2020: EUR 5.6 billion). This development reflects the lower volume of new business in recent quarters. Liquidity amounted to EUR 1.1 billion as of March 31, 2021 (December 31, 2020: EUR 0.9 billion). The equity ratio was 16.5% and continued to exceed the self-set target of at least 16%.BaFin audits in the final phase All of the audit activities in connection with the special audit pursuant to Section 44 of the German Banking Act (KWG) that were carried out by the auditing firm Mazars have been completed. GRENKE has received the corresponding reports from the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) as expected. The Company is now reviewing the measures already initiated and planned on this basis in coordination with BaFin, who will also determine how to further proceed. The enforcement review of GRENKE AG's consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2019, and the combined group management report and management report for the 2019 financial year, which was handed over to BaFin from the German Financial Reporting Enforcement Panel on September 30, 2020, is also expected to be completed in the near future. The Company has already taken the expected findings into account in its preparation of the 2020 consolidated financial statements.Outlook The year 2021 is a transitional year for GRENKE. The Board of Directors currently expects new leasing business of between EUR 1.7 billion and EUR 2.0 billion, compared to EUR 2.0 billion in the previous year, primarily due to the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic caused the financial year to get off to a subdued start, with the first quarter on par with the fourth quarter of 2020. As the year progresses, the Board of Directors expects the markets to pick up and new business to be stronger in the second half of 2021 than in the first half.The measures from the special audits are planned to be largely implemented during the current financial year. GRENKE intends to acquire the first franchise companies by the end of 2021, with the entire acquisition process expected to be completed in 2022.The lower new business during recent quarters and in the months to come will also be reflected in the operating income for full-year 2021. Furthermore, despite lower business volumes, the Board of Directors currently expects costs to increase slightly due to the lagging effects of the audits. In total, the Board of Directors expects net profit for the 2021 financial year in the range of EUR 50 million to EUR 70 million due to the high profitability of the existing contract portfolio and new business.The quarterly statement for the first quarter of 2021 is available online at www.grenke.com/investor-relations/reports-and-presentations.

    GRENKE AG: GRENKE AG presents its annual report for the year 2020

    DGAP-News: GRENKE AG / Key word(s): Annual Report21.05.2021 / 06:59 The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.GRENKE AG presents its annual report for the year 2020- CEO Antje Leminsky: "Remarkable success in a difficult period"- CFO Sebastian Hirsch: "A powerful validation of our value and profitability"- Quarterly statement for Q1 2021 to be published on May 31, 2021- Virtual Annual General Meeting to be held on July 29, 2021Baden-Baden, May 21, 2021: GRENKE AG, a global financing partner for small and medium-sized enterprises, today published its annual report for the year 2020. The Company presented preliminary figures on April 30, 2021 followed by an announcement on May 17, 2021 that the auditing firm KPMG had issued an unqualified audit opinion for the annual and consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2020."We have successfully concluded an exceptionally difficult 2020," says Antje Leminsky, Chair of the Board of Directors of GRENKE AG. "Not only did we withstand the strong headwinds from various directions, but now the prerequisites are in place to allow GRENKE to return to its growth mode."At EUR 88.4 million (20191: EUR 133.3 million), GRENKE met its forecast of consolidated net profit in the upper double-digit millions published on February 26, 2021. This level of net profit corresponds to earnings per share of EUR 1.86 (20191: EUR 2.89). For the current financial year, GRENKE is forecasting net profit of EUR 50 million to EUR 70 million.The Board of Directors and Supervisory Board propose a dividend payment for the 2020 financial year of EUR 0.26 per share (previous year: EUR 0.80). This level enables GRENKE AG to conserve its capital base and the flexibility to take advantage of future growth opportunities.The extremely thorough audit of the financial statements by KPMG confirmed the value of GRENKE's business. At 16.3 percent, the equity ratio remained high and above the Company's self-imposed minimum target of 16 percent."The audited consolidated financial statements prove beyond a doubt the value and sustainability of our business. We are aware that we can and must improve in some areas, but we have successfully mastered an audit marathon and have already increased our level of transparency significantly," says Sebastian Hirsch, Chief Financial Officer of GRENKE AG, adding: "This gives us a good starting point for expanding our leading position as a provider of small-ticket leasing and as a partner for SMEs worldwide."On May 31, 2021, GRENKE will report its business performance for the first quarter of 2021 and invite the media and investors to participate in a conference call as usual.GRENKE has started the routine tender process for the appointment of the auditor for the 2021 financial year 2021.
