DelfinGroup preliminary consolidated results for 12 months of 2019 have surpassed the published financial estimate. The Group’s turnover reached EUR 21.8 million (6% higher than estimate), loan portfolio amounted to EUR 31.6 million (12% increase compared to the estimate), and EBITDA rose to EUR 8.1 million (11% on top of the estimate).
The Group's turnover in 12 months, compared to the same period of the previous year, has increased by 16%, while the company's loan portfolio has increased by 56% over the period. Consolidated EBITDA growth was 13% per annum.
In 2019, the Group’s operations were affected by the changes in the Law on Consumer Rights that came into force on July 1, 2019. The unaudited results show that the company has been able to keep growing in size and in profitability under the new regulation. One reason for such track record is that 40% of DelfinGroup’s revenues are generated by pawn shop operations (pawn loans, sale of goods etc.) which are not subject to the new regulation. Another reason is the company’s overall efficiency achieved by the introduction of new value adding services and products and by closely monitoring the cost base. The company has further increased the maximum loan amount to EUR 5000. The Group continued to develop its youngest brand VIZIA reaching 75% annual growth in the net loan portfolio.
The company celebrated 10-year anniversary in October 2019 and marked the first completed business decade by defining a brand-new corporate identity, including the change of name from ExpressCredit to DelfinGroup in February 2020. DelfinGroup upgraded mission is to create and provide innovative and custom finance solutions to its clients.
