Juventus’ financial statement 2015/16 closed with a profit of €4.1 million and an increase of €1.8 million compared to the €2.3 mln of the previous year. This variation, as stated by the club, was mainly derived from an increase in revenue from the registration rights of the players (€22.9 million) and the general increase in recurring revenues (€16.8 million). In reference to those revenues, in the statement it is highlighted that €13.5 million came from the sale of products and licenses, in addition to net non-recurring revenues for a total of €8.9 million.
The increase in revenue totals €387.9 million. This growth has been partially offset by the increase in players’ wages (€18.9 mln) and the general staff (€4.2 mln). In addition, Juventus FC was also able to offset the increase in costs for external services (€5.6 mln), the higher amortization on players’ registration rights (€9.2 mln), the purchase of products for sale (€4.3 million), the higher expenses from player’s registration obligations (€3.9 mln) as well as other net negative variations for total of €0.7 million. The above numbers include the higher provisions (€-1.5 mln) and the group’s share of associates and joint ventures (€-0.7 mln), partially offset by lower net financial expenses (€+0.5 mln) and lower taxes for the financial year (€+1 mln).
