The following comments are taken from the interim report of Juventus Football Club S.p.A. at March 31, 2012 for the third quarter of 2011/2012 (corresponding to the period January 1, to March 31, 2012):

  QIII   
€ million 2011/2012 2010/2011 Change
Revenues 65.9 52.4 13.5
Operating loss (3.3) (3.1) (0.2)
Loss for the period (4.9) (3.9) (1.0)
 
€ million 31/03/2012 30/06/2011 Change
Shareholders' equity 73.5 (5.0) 78.5
Net financial position (96.0) (121.2) 25.2

For a correct interpretation of the data it should be noted that the financial year of Juventus does not coincide with the calendar year but covers the period July 1 – June 30, which corresponds to the football season.

Economic performance is characterized by the highly seasonal nature typical of the sector, determined mainly by the calendar of sports events and the players’ Transfer Campaign. Therefore, the quarterly data presented should not be construed as representing the basis for a full-year projection.

The loss in the third quarter of2011/2012 is €4.9 million and higher by €1 million compared to the loss in the corresponding period of the prior year (-€3.9 million) due basically to higher revenues from games (+€5.9 million) and higher income from players’ management (+€6.9 million) partially offset by higher costs of players and technical staff (-€6.6 million), higher amortization of players’ rights (-€4.7 million), higher amortization of other assets (-€1.1 million) and finally, higher financial expenses (-€1.1 million).

Shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2012 is a positive €73.5 million. The increase over the negative balance of €5 million at June 30, 2011 is due to the full subscription of the capital increase (+€118.6 million, net of related costs) and other net changes.

Net financial position at March 31, 2012 is a negative €96 million with an improvement of €25.2 million compared to the negative balance of €121.2 million at June 30, 2011. The increase of €25.2 million is attributable to the proceeds from the capital increase (+€118.6 million, net of the relative costs), net disbursements referring to the Transfer Campaign (-€53.4 million), the remaining investments in the Juventus Stadium and other fixed assets (-€24.2 million) and other net changes (-€15.8 million).

Significant events

Transfer campaign – second phase
The transactions finalized in the second phase of the Transfer Campaign 2011/2012, held from January 3, to January 31, 2012, led to an overall increase in invested capital of €12.6 million resulting from acquisitions for €12.8 million and disposals for €0.2 million (net carrying amount of the disposed rights).
The net gains generated by the disposals in the second phase of the Transfer Campaign total €9.2 million. In addition, temporary acquisitions and disposals resulted in net expenses of €2 million.
