Regrettably, we were unable to initiate the reprogramming decided upon at the last general assembly. Despite the high commitment of many members, the necessary starting capital did not accumulate. Our community is simply still too small for such a huge project. On the other hand, the campaign led to the fact that the equity ratio of our association is now very solid. This, as well as all other financial aspects, is reported separately.

Apart from the effects of the global coronavirus crisis, which cannot be assessed in any way, we currently do not see any major risks for ipernity. The technical and financial basis is now very solid. However, our personnel resources are rather weak. A long-term absence of members of the ima team would not be easy to cope with. After all, my colleagues on the team are doing almost impossible things. For this I thank them on behalf of the whole community, as well as our advisors and all those members who, through their feedback in the team blog, create indispensable realism. Your comments and critical questions are not always comfortable, but always valuable.

With regard to the fact that many of us will involuntarily spend much more time within our own four walls during the next weeks or months, I would like to invite you to use this time to make ipernity even more attractive for visitors and potential members. Let us make the best out of this crisis by using it for a quality offensive.

I hope that our fellowship will continue to grow together in this year of crisis and ultimately emerge stronger. There will certainly be a time after the coronavirus pandemic for which it is worthwhile to stand together and deepen friendships. Because “ipernity is more than just photo sharing”.

Thank you.

Since we assume that you have read the report in its entirety before the meeting, we continue directly with

Agenda item 5: Report of the CFO on the past fiscal year (2019)

The corresponding annual financial statement of the association were examined by the advisers and found to be correct:

2019-12-31 ima Annual Financial Report (EN)

These financial statements are also available in audited French and German translations. You can get there by clicking on the thumbnail above. Downloadable pdf files are also available there.

We will publish the report of the CFO in English here. Authorised translations in French and German are published simultaneously and can be consulted via the following links:

● English: IGA2020 - Report of the CFO
● Français: IGA2020 - Rapport du CFO
● Deutsch: IGA2020 - Bericht des CFO

If any of these languages is not your native language, you can have the report translated into your language using ipernity's internal translation function and read it in this way.

As all attendees have had the opportunity to read this report in advance, we are now publishing it here rather quickly.

Ladies and gentlemen,

The turnaround of ipernity was successfully continued in the reporting year. Total assets increased to EUR 20,486 (previous year: EUR 1,954). This exceeds expectations (EUR 17,000) by EUR 3,486 (20.5 percent). The reserves cover almost six months of operating costs (without IT projects). Our association now has a solid financial footing.

The inflow of cash from regular contribution payments grew by 22.6 percent to EUR 52,582 (previous year: EUR 42,879). The average contribution income per member was EUR 37.03 per year. The donations received increased tenfold to EUR 3,787 (previous year: EUR 365). In addition, advance contribution payments of EUR 10,852 were made. This expresses the members' great confidence in the future. Overall, income rose by 34.8 percent to EUR 67,295 (previous year: EUR 49,986).

In turn, costs were reduced by 26.6 percent to EUR 48,736 (previous year: EUR 66,465). The most significant savings were achieved in external IT services. The costs for these fell by EUR 9,663 (55.6 percent) to EUR 7,723 (previous year: EUR 17,386). This was made possible by IT services provided internally without charge since March 2019.
