Adevinta Announces Q1 2019 Results
Product enhancements focused on trust and matchmaking were accelerated in the quarter, driving increased traffic and revenue growth in the core verticals. Display advertising softness continued through the quarter with key initiatives in place to reverse this trend.
Strategies in Global Markets saw investment phase losses reverse with this segment posting positive EBITDA for the first time.
Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO, commented: “I am pleased to report a strong set of results for the first reporting period of Adevinta as a publicly-listed company.
“After one day of trading Adevinta was valued at NOK 60 billion, making it the third largest new listing on Oslo Stock Exchange historically. We saw strong investor demand for our shares and had a positive start to trading.
“Adevinta is positioned as one of the largest and fastest growing pure play online classifieds companies globally.
“We continued to deliver on our strategy, producing strong revenue growth and improved operating margins. Q1 revenues grew 15 percent to EUR 174.4 million, on a proportionate basis. The rise reflects strong growth in verticals, up 19 percent, underlining the network effects of the businesses as local marketplaces increased their leadership positions. The total revenue growth was impacted by a weak display advertising market.
“Proportionate EBITDA increased 63 percent to EUR 49.7 million, as margins saw big improvements, increasing to 29 percent. Our core businesses in France, Spain and Brazil all enjoyed successful growth periods.”
