Profit and loss account (summary)

In the 2015/16 financial year EOS Consolidated had a profit of 160.7 million euros. Net sales increased to 29.1 million euros as a result of higher cash receipts.

Personnel expenses of 3.9 million euros were higher than the previous year despite declining headcount. The reasons are mainly the reduction of personnel in low-wage regions, acquisition of Alphapay and currency exchange rates. Other operating expenses rose by 4.1 million euros. The scheduled and non-scheduled depreciation on intangible and tangible assets are virtually unchanged compared to the previous year.

The financial results are characterised by other financial results, which were extremely high. This is almost exclusively attributable to the sale of the stake in the business information service Bürgel in Germany.

The increase in earned equity reflects the excellent results of the financial year.
