The Board of Directors examines and approves the consolidated financial statements as of 31 December 2017

San Donato Milanese, 26 February 2018 – The Board of Directors of Cerved Information Solutions S.p.A. (MTA: CERV, the “Company”) – parent holding company of the Cerved Group, the largest information provider and credit servicer in Italy – today examined and approved the consolidated financial statements as of 31 December 2017.

Marco Nespolo, Chief Executive Officer of the Group, commented:

“Financial year 2017 was characterised by a strong wave of innovation in all of our key business divisions and such innovation gave an important contribution to our results for the year. We in fact achieved growth in Revenues of +6.5% and Adjusted EBITDA of +4.0%, and we reduced our leverage ratio from 2.9x to 2.5x. We will therefore propose to the shareholders’ meeting to distribute a dividend of Euro 52.7 million equating to Euro 0.27 per share, increasing by 9.3%.”

“We foresee further important changes in 2018, especially for the Credit Management division following the recently signed partnerships with Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, Quaestio and Banca Popolare di Bari, and the finalization of new servicing contracts such as REV. These partnerships and contracts will allow us to more than double the volume of NPLs under management and to significantly grow both Revenues and EBITDA.

“In line with best pratice for publicly listed companies, this forthcoming June we expect to host our second Investor Day in London and Milan, in which we will highlight the key pillars of our strategy and illustrate our medium to long term objectives for the Group.”
