Press release, Stockholm, 3 July 2020
Qliro Group’s subsidiary Qliro AB reports two negative one-off effects totalling SEK 24 million in the second quarter. The first effect is an impairment of intangible fixed assets of SEK 16 million. The second effect is due a changed method regarding when commissions to Qliro AB’s merchants are recorded and is estimated at SEK 8 million.
Qliro AB’s intangible fixed assets amounted to SEK 183 million at the end of the first quarter. These mainly relates to proprietary intangible assets such as the check-out solution and the digital platforms such as web and app. When preparing the financial statements for the second quarter, impairments of assets of SEK 16 million is made as these are no longer used in the business. The impairments include, among other things, technology development for the loan product, data storage infrastructure and app solutions. The impairments lower depreciations for the years 2020-2022 with the corresponding amount and do not affect Qliro’s capital adequacy.
The second non-recurring effect is due to an improvement regarding the timing of the reporting of commissions to merchants, so that it coincides with the reporting of revenues from consumers. This reduces total operating income in the second quarter by SEK 8 million, where of SEK 3 million in net interest income and SEK 5 million in net commission income.
None of the non-recurring effects affects the cash flow.
