Hertha BSC has invested heavily in the team, and the coronavirus pandemic has also led to a drop in income. This is reflected in the balance sheet.

Because of Corona, the financial situation is not easy for Hertha's managing director Ingo Schiller (left). The millions of Invester Lars Windhorst are very helpful.

Ingo Schiller last saw photos of full football stadiums. So photos that are only nine months old, but which Schiller almost seemed antiquarian. Nobody knows at the moment when it could look like this again. Nobody knows whether it will ever look like this again, even if restrictions on public life are no longer necessary due to the corona virus. "I still can't really imagine that today," says Schiller, the CFO of the Bundesliga club Hertha BSC.

What was normal just a few months ago seems surreal to us today. In return, we got used to things that we could not have imagined a year ago. That Hertha BSC is swimming in the money, for example - and Ingo Schiller nevertheless had to announce a record loss and a new all-time high in debt at the general meeting on Sunday in the east curve of the Olympic Stadium.

Hertha BSC KGaA made a loss of 59 million euros in the 2019/20 financial year. As a result, liabilities have risen to almost 142 million euros - after 87.4 million euros a year ago , which was mainly due to the repurchase of the shares of the financial investor KKR. This time, Schiller speaks of the impacts that the corona virus had on Hertha's balance sheet.

At the end of October it can get quite uncomfortable in the draughty Olympic Stadium.

Progress is possible – some countries bent the curve of new cases and are monitoring the outbreak well. But globally we are very far from the goal and the global number of We built 207 country profiles which allow you to explore the statistics on the coronavirus pandemic for every country in the world.

At least 828 new coronavirus deaths and 75,049 new cases were reported in the United States on Oct. As of Friday morning, more than 8,455,200 people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus and at least 223,000 have died, according to a New York Times database.

The fact that the result is so drastic is related to two factors: on the one hand, the loss of income due to the pandemic; and secondly with the club's investments in the team. That's why Hertha had already calculated a loss for the financial year, because of Corona it was significantly higher again. “Both effects accumulate with us,” said Schiller in a media talk about the presentation of the balance sheet.

Hertha is to receive 100 million euros shortly.

Hertha's managing director put the revenue shortfall compared to the original plans at almost 36 million euros, and by the end of the current season, for which Hertha is now planning without spectators, there would be another double-digit million amount added. According to Schiller's assessment, the club is at the top of the league comparison.

The team has also become significantly more expensive due to the transfers last summer (Dodi Lukebakio) and especially in winter (Matheus Cunha, Santiago Ascacibar and Krzysztof Piatek). The licensed player budget has now risen to 70 million euros. Nevertheless, Schiller believes "that we are one of the clubs with the highest cash position and a very good equity base that will also improve again". The equity of the partnership limited by shares rose from 123 to 146 million euros.

Hertha BSC wants to build up reserves

Hertha will soon receive another 100 million euros from Lars Windhorst , whose Tennor Group will then have invested a total of 374 million euros in the club and acquired two thirds of the share in the KGaA. The payout of the last tranche, which was announced for October, "is imminent," said Schiller. According to Hertha's Chief Financial Officer, there have been no talks about further investments by Windhorst. The 374 million euros are already the largest single investment that has ever been made in the Bundesliga, explained Schiller, "insofar as this is not necessary either".

Thanks to Tennor's entry, Schiller sees Hertha as being much better equipped for the difficult situation than many competitors in the Bundesliga. “We are really well positioned thanks to the capital measures,” he said. Despite all the imponderables, Hertha's managing director expressed his confidence for the current financial year. "We will have clearly positive liquidity, further strengthened equity and a significant reduction in liabilities in the double-digit million range," he predicted.

Even if, according to Schiller, thanks to careful planning, Hertha can “theoretically no longer experience any negative surprises”, further developments due to the pandemic cannot be reliably predicted. "We are therefore well advised to build up certain reserves at the moment." There will certainly not be transfers of the same size as last winter for the time being, Schiller explained, "but you probably did not expect that either".

Report: Hertha Presidium as the last hurdle for Cunha contract .
Matheus Cunha's early contract extension at Hertha BSC is getting closer and closer. As the "Bild" newspaper reports, the personnel is on the agenda of the newly elected presidium of the Berlin Bundesliga club on Tuesday. The 21-year-old Brazilian should therefore extend his contract, which is valid until 2024, by one year. For this he would receive significantly improved remuneration and Hertha would get the security of a transfer fee in the mid double-digit million range.
