The costs for the Amazon Web Service (AWS) were also reduced. They fell by EUR 7,509 (17.5 percent) to EUR 35,397 (previous year: EUR 42,906), although the exchange rate of the US dollar against the euro deteriorated by 5.5 percent. The major savings were achieved by deleting invisible content that had accumulated since ipernity was founded. As a result, storage costs fell by EUR 7,320 (35.5 percent) to EUR 13,278 (previous year: EUR 20,598).

Because Google had modified the pricing for API usage, there was a high unexpected additional expenditure of around EUR 630 per month from March onwards. Calculated over the year, this would have meant an unplanned budget burden of EUR 7,540. We have cushioned the cost increase by switching the GEO localization and map service from Google Maps to OpenStreetMap. As a result, we were able to limit the additional expenditure to a total of EUR 1,900.

In order to invest the capital reserves profitably until they are needed for reprogramming, we started to convert the server leasing contracts with ASW to cost-effective long-term contracts with advance payment in 2019. During the contract periods, this will reduce the costs for the AWS servers (including depreciation) by around EUR 4,400 (12 percent) annually. Thus the mutual trust of the members leads directly to financial advantages for our community.

The liabilities in the form of subscription obligations amounted to EUR 56,667, which results in an equity ratio of 36.2 percent. This is a robust economy of scale.

Since the one-off effects on income (EUR 14,649 from donations and multi-year subscriptions) will not be repeated in this magnitude, we expect a smaller increase in reserves in 2020. We expect the amount to be EUR 30,000 in total. The equity ratio should rise to over 50 percent. Apart from the Corona crisis, whose economic impact on ipernity is completely unpredictable, no other financial risks are known that could endanger ipernity's operations.
