Oslo, 24 November 2022 - Adevinta ASA (ADE) (“Adevinta” or “the Company”) reported strong revenue growth of 12% for core markets in the third quarter compared to the same period last year, as a result of strong recovery in Mobile.de and continued solid performance in other markets.
Excluding the impact from the French digital services tax legislation (DST), Group EBITDA was €141 million (representing a 34.5% EBITDA margin) and improved by 12% compared to Q3’21.
This was the result of (i) the positive topline evolution, (ii) lower marketing investment, driven by different phasing and spend allocation discipline, and (iii) cost management in the current market context. This was partly offset by (i) the continued build-up of global capabilities ahead of the implementation of new operating models for enabling functions and Product and Technology teams, and to accelerate new business model development and value creation, and (ii) higher direct costs from transactional services, in line with the adoption of the service and revenue growth.
Group consolidated EBITDA amounted to 132 million euros, up 5% year-on-year, negatively impacted by the €(9) million euros provision booked related to the French DST.
New appointments in the leadership team and assignment of vertical responsibilities to align with the ‘Growing at Scale’ strategy
In line with the ‘Growing at Scale’ strategy, Adevinta will start to verticalise its operations based on its three key pillars:
As part of this, Adevinta’s executive leadership team (AdEx) announces new appointments, effective 1 January 2023:
Antoine Jouteau, CEO Adevinta: “Our third quarter results demonstrate progress against our key strategic and financial objectives. I am proud of our team and our contribution to society in the face of a challenging macroeconomic environment.
We are adapting our organisation to make it even more efficient, with laser sharp focus on bringing more value to our users and clients.
Aligning our operating structures with our strategy increases efficiency and speed, as well as our ability to cater to evolving customer needs with tailored and innovative products and services. It also allows us to capture further opportunities within these vertical areas, and enhances our competitiveness and resilience.
My new executive team and I share the same vision and ambition for Adevinta. It is my pleasure to welcome Alexandre Collinet, Julien Jouhault, Paul Heimann and Román Campa. Each brings with them a combination of entrepreneurial spirit, industry knowledge and a proven track record of commercial success. I thank Alex Alexander, Gianpaolo Santorsola and Zac Candelario for their contributions to Adevinta and wish them well in their next endeavours.
I remain very confident and excited about the many opportunities that we have ahead of us. As we navigate the current uncertain environment, we will continue to balance growth and profitability with disciplined investment in the mid to longer term.”
