Key Figures

2015 Results


IFRS net income came to €24.2 million in 2015, up nearly 29% on the prior year.

Net revenues and income before tax for 2014 and 2015 are not directly comparable, due to ABC arbitrage’s interest in Quartys Ltd and application of the IFRS 10 consolidation exemption. The investments in Quartys Ltd and ABCA Funds Ireland Plc are recognized under “Net gain/loss on financial instruments at fair value through profit or loss”, i.e. net of expenses and tax. This automatically reduces “Net revenues”, as compared with full consolidation, which separates income from expense.

The Group’s parent company, ABC arbitrage, and its asset management companies, ABC arbitrage Asset Management and ABC arbitrage Asset Management Asia, are not subject to the IFRS exception and are therefore fully consolidated.

In consequence, only net income and return on equity (ROE), 17.1% compared with 14.7% in 2014, are directly comparable with the same indicators for prior years.
