As if the real estate investor Adler Group didn't already have enough problems, a few more have recently been added. Though not surprising. Because the group has slipped deep into the red due to value adjustments. The management reported this late Monday evening. The loss in the first six months was around 600 million euros, the debt ratio rose from 52 to 58 percent.
The company is also not making a dividend proposal to its shareholders for the time being. The reaction on the markets to the bad numbers is surprisingly friendly. Shares of the Adler Group are listed in the S-DAX, they rose by almost five percent in the morning.
BaFin described Adler Group as "incorrect"
However, the papers had also collapsed sharply in recent months. Allegations of fraud, open invoices and the previously unsuccessful search for an auditor have brought the real estate investor a lot of bad headlines.
The Adler Group could not get a certificate without an auditor, and without a certificate the company would be cut off from the banking and capital markets, according to the company itself.
Largest German real estate developer
The Adler Group is one of the largest real estate developers in Germany. The company's difficulties can also be seen in numerous ruined buildings in various German cities, where there is apparently no progress.
The general meeting of the real estate group on Wednesday in Berlin is likely to be turbulent. There it should also go to the sale of 22,000 apartments, with which debts are to be reduced. That would be almost all the apartments that the Adler Group currently has. According to their own statements, there are around 26 thousand.
