Real Madrid released the financial data Florentino Pérez will present to the socios later this month. It seems that Madrid will continue being the world's richest club for a while as its growth does not stop. Madrid's total revenue reached €660 million.

Real Madrid C. F.'s Board of Directors, meeting earlier this evening, agreed to call an Ordinary General Assembly for 19 September 2015. The financial results relating to the 2014-2015 season that will be submitted for approval are as follows:

Real Madrid closed out the 2014/15 fiscal year with the figure for total revenue standing at €660.6 million, a 9.4% increase on the previous fiscal year. This figure includes the capital gains obtained through the sale of players.

Operating income, not taking the capital gains obtained through the sale of players into account, stood at €577.7 million, a 5.1% increase on the previous fiscal year.

Earnings Before Interests, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) rose to €203.4 million, an increase of 23.7% on the previous fiscal year, and this figure includes the income raised from the sale of players in the total revenue.Without taking these capital gains into account, the "recurring" EBITDA has increased to €135 million, which represents 23.4% of revenue and an increase of 8.4% from the previous fiscal year.

Pre-tax profits have risen to €55.9 million, a 15.9% increase on the previous fiscal year.

Net profit (after tax) has climbed to €42 million, a 9.1% increase on the previous fiscal year. Net equity grew by €41.6 million to reach a figure of €412.1 million.

Net financial debt stands at €95.8 million, which represents 0.5 of the operating profit and loss (EBITDA) and 0.2 of the net equity.

It's not easy to read into these numbers, but Real Madrid have generated €60 million more than they did last year. Furthermore, the club have not spend a lot of money on transfers this summer, so next year's numbers might be even better.
