The quarterly data cannot be construed as representing the basis for a full-year projection. 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 participation in competitions in Europe, particularly the UEFA Champions League, the calendar of sports events and the two phases of the players’ Transfer Campaign. The financial position and cash flows of the company are also affected by the seasonal nature of the income components; in addition, some revenues items are collected in a period different from the recognition period.

Profit

Profit for the third quarter 2012/2013 amounts to €2.6 million, increasing by €7.5 million compared with the loss recorded for the same period of the previous financial year (-€4.9 million). The positive change is substantially due to higher income from television and radio rights and media revenues (+€10.1 million), lower players’ wages and technical staff costs (+€2.6 million) and lower amortization of players registration rights (+€1.7 million). These positive changes are partially offset by lower net revenues from players' registration rights (-€4.9 million) and higher amortization of other fixed assets (-€1.9 million).

Shareholders’ equity

Shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2013 amounts to €78.4 million, registering an increase compared with the balance of €64.6 million at June 30, 2012, mainly due to the profit recorded for the period (+€13.8 million).

Significant events in the first quarter of 2013 are the following:

Football season
On May 5, 2013 the First Team won the Serie A Championship 2012/2013 with three matches to spare (the 31st league title in the team's history) and obtained direct access to the Group Stage of the next UEFA Champions League 2013/2014.
