Adevinta ASA (ADE) - Adevinta reports strong Q3 financial performance in soft macro environment
- +14% year-on-year revenue growth in Core Markets, driven by continued outstanding performance at mobile.de
- Total consolidated revenues at €454m, up +12%1 yoy
- Total consolidated EBITDA of €171m, up 29% yoy and reported EBITDA margin of 37.6%
- 2023 outlook and long-term ambition for Core Markets confirmed
- Concurrent announcement of a voluntary tender offer to acquire all issued and outstanding shares in Adevinta
Oslo, 21 November 2023 - Adevinta ASA (ADE) (“Adevinta'' or “the Company”) has accelerated the release of its Q3 2023 results, originally scheduled for 23 November, due to the concurrent announcement of a voluntary tender offer to acquire all issued and outstanding ordinary Class A shares in Adevinta by Aurelia Bidco Norway AS. For more information about the offer, please refer to the announcement made by Aurelia Bidco.
Adevinta reports its Q3 2023 results, which continue to show a strong performance, with 14% yoy revenue growth for its Core Markets. This was driven by outstanding performance of mobile.de, bolstered by continued solid results in other segments.
- Online classifieds revenues improved by 17%, supported by continued strong double-digit revenue growth in Mobility, mostly driven by mobile.de. Real Estate posted a double-digit growth during the period, driven by France and Kleinanzeigen. Jobs’ performance was flat year-on-year;
- Transactional revenues grew by 51% year-on-year, with strong revenue growth in all markets;
- Advertising revenues were down 6% year-on-year, as a result of an overall weaker advertising market.
Gross operating profit (reported EBITDA) amounted to 171 million euro, up 29% year-on-year, representing a 37.6% margin, up by more than 5 percentage points year-on-year. This was the result of (i) strong revenue growth in the period, (ii) lower marketing spend (down by more than 20% year-on-year) driven by different phasing, spend discipline and prioritisation across all markets, and (iii) a favourable spread of expenses in the period, with some catch-up expected in Q4 2023. Last year, performance was also impacted by the (6) million euro catch-up provision related to the French DST. This was partly offset by (i) higher personnel costs, driven by the continued scaled build-up of global capabilities, with the implementation of new operating models for support functions and Product and Technology teams, continued investment in product development and in sales and customer support operations to support future growth, and (ii) higher direct costs from transactional services, in line with the adoption of the service and revenue growth.
Antoine Jouteau, CEO Adevinta, comments:
“We witnessed another positive set of results in the third quarter, with continued growth across our core business, despite a challenging market environment. This quarter has seen us continue to deliver against our business and strategic roadmap, which we have driven forward with ongoing business integration measures and operational verticalisation. This focused work by the talented teams across Adevinta has seen our revenues, EBITDA and margins improving substantially year on year. This puts us on an excellent footing to close out the year.”
