Results and Balance Sheet

  • The Group’s H1 net revenues came in at €83.8m (-28.3% YoY), primarily due to significantly lower net revenues in Investment Banking (€52.6m, -27.3% YoY) and Credit Portfolio Advisory (€15.3m, -45.6% YoY). Asset Management revenues decreased by 8.1% YoY to €14.8m.

    Although overall deal activity in the second quarter slightly improved compared to the first one, the market environment remains challenging, with M&A volumes at very low levels (40% below H1 20221). Equally, the financial and monetary context is negatively affecting fundraising efforts for the Asset Management business.
  • Operating expenses in H1 decreased to €79.9m (-14.1%),driven by lower variable compensation (-57.6% YoY), which is linked to performance.
  • H1 net profit attributable to the parent company stood at €4.1m (-81.3% YoY), of which €2.9m corresponded to the fee business, €0.5m to the portfolio, and €0.7m to other businesses.
