Ferratum publishes financial figures for the first half year of 2015Helsinki/Berlin, August 13, 2015 - Ferratum Oyj (ISIN: FI4000106299, WKN:
A1W9NS; together with its consolidated subsidiaries hereinafter "Ferratum
Group" or "Ferratum"), an international provider of mobile consumer loans and
a pioneer in the field of "financial technology", announced its key financial
figures for the first six months of the financial year 2015 today.

In the first half of 2015, the revenues of Ferratum Group increased
significantly by a total of 61.5% to EUR 49.8 million (H1 2014: EUR 30.8
million). Due to the increase of customer receivables during the reporting
period in the amount of EUR 81.0 million (12/2014: EUR 61.5 million) risk
provisioning also increased from EUR 9.5 million to EUR 16.4 million.
Operating costs rose significantly from EUR 16.3 million in the reporting
period of the previous year to EUR 27.1 million in the first half of 2015.
This figure includes the costs of EUR 0.5 million associated with the IPO.
Increased marketing and selling expenses that amounted to EUR 6.8 million (H1
2014: EUR 3.9 million) in the reporting period were also partially
responsible for the significant increase. In line with this development,
Ferratum posted earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of EUR 6.8 million
adjusted for non-recurring IPO expenses with its business operations. This
corresponds to an adjusted EBIT margin of 13.6%. Taking the IPO costs into
consideration, EBIT rose by 18.3% to EUR 6.3 million (H1 2014: EUR 5.3
million). This resulted in an EBIT margin of 12.6% (H1 2014: 17.2%). After
taking the net financial charges into account, adjusted earnings before tax
(EBT) increased by 55.8% to EUR 5.7 million (EUR 5.2 million after IPO costs;
H1 2014: EUR 3.6 million). The adjusted EBT margin was 11.4% (10.4% after IPO
costs; H1 2014: 11.8%). As a result, adjusted net income increased
significantly by a total of 67.1% to EUR 5.0 million (EUR 4.6 million after
IPO costs) following EUR 3.0 million in the first half of 2014. With
21,577,750 shares issued (excluding treasury shares), undiluted (basic)
earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.22 (H1 2014: EUR 0.16) at the end of the
reporting period.
