Dr Helmut Hufnagel, Member of the EOS Group’s Board of Directors and responsible for the Eastern European region
In the region of Eastern Europe, we welcomed a new record. EOS Consolidated slightly exceeded the results of the 2012/13 financial year and achieved the highest level of earnings ever.
In almost all countries in this region, we succeeded in improving results compared to the previous year and plan. In Romania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic in particular, we markedly exceeded the previous year’s results.
In Slovakia and Romania, a very strong performance was achieved in the processing of receivables portfolios. In the Czech Republic, fiduciary collection and debt purchase sales developed very successfully.
The start of a new business unit has also succeeded in the region. In the past reporting year, EOS Consolidated bought sizeable receivables portfolios secured by real estate there for the first time. We purchased the largest package of this kind in Poland.
