Second Bundesliga club 1860 Munich "has unveiled its delayed financial results for the '11-12 fiscal year," according to Filippo Cataldo of the ABENDZEITUNG MÜNCHEN. Only one year after investor Hasan Ismaik joined the club, 1860 Munich made a loss of €6.3M. The club's debt stood at €5.1M by the June 30 deadline. Despite those negative numbers, the club "was able to reduce its debt for two consecutive years." However, due to decreasing attendance numbers and reduced sponsorship income, the club "is in the short and medium term not viable without investments of majority shareholder Ismaik" (ABENDZEITUNG MÜNCHEN, 10/22).
