Adevinta ASA (ADE) - Adevinta reports strong Q1 financial performance in soft macro environment

  • Strong EU51 revenue growth: +12% year-on-year
  • Total revenues at €480m, up 11%2 year-on-year
  • Total EBITDA of €165m, up 14% year-on-year and EBITDA margin of 34.4%
  • Strong cash flow generation and continued deleveraging

Oslo, 28 May 2024 -
Adevinta ASA (ADE) (“Adevinta'' or “the Company”) reported strong group revenue growth of 11% in the first quarter of 2024 compared to the same period last year. This excludes the impact of the Hungarian business divestment in Q3 2023.

EU5 Markets revenues reached €449 million in the quarter, representing a strong 12% growth, despite the soft macroeconomic environment:

  • Online classifieds revenues improved by 16%, supported by continued strong double-digit revenue growth in Mobility, driven by strong double-digit performance in all markets. Real Estate posted a solid performance in the period, driven by Kleinanzeigen and France. Jobs’ performance was back to growth;
  • Transactional revenues grew by 31% 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 165 million euro, up 14% year-on-year, representing a 34.4% margin, up 1 percentage point year-on-year, driven by the strong revenue growth in the period.

This was partly offset by (i) higher marketing costs, driven by a low comparative base in the previous year and by additional investments in key markets, particularly Kleinanzeigen, and France, (ii) higher IT expenses, due to changes in accounting treatment, (iii) higher direct costs from transactional services, in line with the adoption of the service and revenue growth, and (iv) a €(2)m charge on share-based compensation and personnel costs as a result of the voluntary offer.

Antoine Jouteau, CEO Adevinta, comments: 

“Adevinta’s strong start to the year has been underpinned by solid operational and financial performance. We have continued the successful execution of our Growing at Scale strategy while our sector expertise, product innovation and robust financials have established a firm foundation for the year ahead. Overall, Adevinta remains a high-performing business with a strong financial foundation and profitable business model. Our strategic growth pillars - Mobility, Real Estate and transactional businesses – continue to be the key drivers of this successful growth story. I would like to thank our employees whose ability, ambition and commitment continue to position Adevinta as a leading online classifieds platform and champion for sustainable commerce.”
