DGAP-News: Ernst Russ AG / Key word(s): Annual Results
Ernst Russ Group successfully achieves company objectives
Revenue increased 20% year on year to EUR 52.7 million. Consolidated net income after tax also developed positively and increased EUR 0.2 million year on year to EUR 6.4 million. With an equity ratio of 49.4% (previous year: 38.0%), the Ernst Russ Group is well-positioned for the future.
In the Shipping segment, the focus was on expanding the fleet through direct ship investments and substantial equity holdings. The 'ElbFeeder' joint venture established in 2017 was expanded to seven vessels. Another ship was acquired as a direct investment and investments were also made in ship funds. We are aiming to expand the fleet in the future by acquiring additional ships.
A large number of successful transactions were conducted in the Real Estate segment. The Ernst Russ Group was directly involved in these transactions through profit-sharing arrangements. This aspect of the Group's business activities grew significantly with the incorporation of a subsidised housing project.
As planned the Ernst Russ Group sold all its business activities in the Solar segment and its interest in HAMMONIA Reederei in Q1 2019. The core business segments, Asset Investment and Asset Management in the Shipping and Real Estate asset classes, represent the focus of its activities.
