Credit standing consistently high: Financial investor EOS awarded A-rating for 15th time in succession

Hamburg, Germany, July 3, 2019 – Good news for the EOS Group: for the 15th time in a row, EOS Holding, the international financial investor’s parent company, received an A-rating for creditworthiness. The auditors from Euler Hermes Rating attested that EOS continues to present a low financial risk. The rating experts cited the high stability of the company’s cash flows and the continued very high level of earnings as the rationale for the rating. The auditors also expect a stable performance for the coming 12 months.

Euler Hermes considered the longstanding experience of EOS in the valuation, acquisition and recovery of non-performing debt, its market leadership in Germany and strong position in the Western and Eastern European markets to be especially positive factors. EOS has more than 60 subsidiaries in 26 countries.

"We are delighted that the auditors again confirmed the high level and stability of our earning power, and that their report specifically emphasized our extensive experience in receivables purchasing and recovery," says Justus Hecking-Veltman, Member of the EOS Group’s Board of Directors and Chief Financial Officer. "In fiscal 2018/19 we invested EUR 668 million in receivables and real estate. We are aiming to again purchase secured and unsecured debt portfolios of this magnitude in this current financial year."
