For the thirteenth time in succession, the auditors from Euler Hermes Rating have awarded EOS Holding an ‘A’ rating, acknowledging that the debt collection specialist enjoys a good credit standing and long-term viability. The key factors leading to this assessment were the company’s excellent earning power over a number of years as well as its good debt repayment capacity and equity base.
Among the reasons for the rating the auditors cited in particular the long-standing experience of EOS in evaluating, acquiring and recovering non-performing receivables. ‘Although we are currently experiencing a fiercely fought market we are consistently demonstrating that the acquisition of debt portfolios is our core area of expertise,’ says Justus Hecking-Veltman, CEO and CFO of the EOS Group.
The auditors also commented on the competitive situation: ‘Due to the higher prices for unsecured receivables, we expect that there will be an ever increasing proportion of investments in mortgage-backed receivables.’ EOS has expanded this business area in recent years and is now also offering this service in several countries in Eastern and Western Europe. ‘In this context we benefit from the expertise that we have been building up in Germany for a long time,’ says Hecking-Veltman.
To stay competitive and maintain its technological leadership, the EOS Group is also making major investments in its IT systems. ‘We are placing even more emphasis on data-driven management of collection processes.’
