Investment summary

Borussia Dortmund’s football season finished with another (comfortable) second place in the Bundesliga confirming qualification for the Champions League in the 2022/23 season. Management’s reiterated guidance for FY22, a net loss of €17–24m, represents a robust performance given the restrictions on fan attendance for the majority of the year and a less successful season in European competitions than is typical. The company is well-placed to deliver an improved financial performance in FY22/23 if further COVID-19 related restrictions can be avoided. Our valuation of €9.8/share suggests significant upside in a normalised operating environment

Industry outlook

Unsustainable spend on wages and transfers is increasingly being penalised by UEFA Financial Fair Play requirements. A ‘break-even requirement’ obliges clubs to spend no more than they generate over a rolling three-year period. Sanctions vary from a warning to a ban from UEFA competition, fines and a cap on wages and squad size.
