Disclosure of an inside information acc. to Article 17 MAR of the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014, transmitted by DGAP - a service of EQS Group AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.


The Management Board and Supervisory Board of CECONOMY AG (CECONOMY) as well as the Management Board and Advisory Board of Media-Saturn-Holding GmbH, a majority shareholding of CECONOMY, today approved a reorganization and efficiency program, which aims at streamlining the group's processes, structures and business activities, reducing costs and therefore creating the foundation for profitable growth. The optimization and restructuring particularly focuses on central functions and administrative units in Germany. The program also includes reviewing the business activities of smaller portfolio companies.

As a result of the program, CECONOMY expects expenses of around EUR150 million to EUR170 million in financial year 2018/19 in total. In addition, CECONOMY expects around EUR20 million of non-cash expenses in financial year 2018/19, which relate to the write-down of assets due to portfolio measures. The expected sustainable annual savings run-rate amounts to between EUR110 million and EUR130 million, the majority of which shall already become effective from financial year 2019/20.

The expenses for top management changes in the amount of EUR34 million, which were already booked in the first quarter of 2018/19, are not included in the expenses of the aforementioned reorganization and efficiency program.

The outlook for financial year 2018/19, which is adjusted for portfolio changes as well as expenses for management changes and restructuring, remains unaffected.

Fonds Research 2019: Dt. Mittelstandsanleihen FONDS bietet attraktive Anlagemöglichkeit

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter den Deutsche Mittelstandsanleihen FONDS (ISIN: LU0974225590), der eine qualitätsorientierte Strategie verfolgt und eine vielversprechende Anlagemöglichkeit in den deutschen Mittelstand bietet. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des aktuellen Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Fonds als gute Chance, um attraktive Renditen zu erwirtschaften und dies verbunden mit einer traditionell niedrigen Fonds-Volatilität. Wir vergeben 5 von 5 GBC-Falken ein.
