FY 2023 Trading Update    

Achieved record revenue and Adjusted EBITDA in 2023

 

Team Internet Group plc (AIM: TIG), the global internet company that generates recurring revenue from creating meaningful and successful connections: businesses to domains, brands to consumers, publishers to advertisers, is pleased to announce its trading update for the full year 2023.

 

The Company now expects to report record gross revenue of c.USD 835 million, net revenue (gross profit) of c.USD 190 million and adjusted EBITDA1 of c.USD 96 million for the financial year 2023. These represent increases of c.15%, c.7% and c.12% respectively versus the prior year, ahead of the recently upgraded market consensus2 for 2023. Adjusted for acquisitions and FX, year-on-year organic growth3 for 2023 was c.12%.

 

Gross revenue growth breaks out as follows between the Company's two reporting segments:

Segment

2023 Gross revenue

2022 Gross revenue

Growth

Online Marketing

USD 656 million

USD 575 million

14%

Online Presence

USD 179 million

USD 154 million

16%

 

Growth has been delivered almost equally (on a percentage basis) by both reporting segments, Online Marketing and Online Presence.

 

Net Debt4 was c.USD 74 million as at 31 December 2023 compared to USD 57 million as at 31 December 2022, following USD 40 million of share repurchases, USD 4 million payment of dividends and USD 22 million settlement of deferred contingent consideration during 2023. Adjusted operating cash conversion was near 100%.

CEO, Michael Riedl, stated, "As we reflect on 2023, I am proud to announce that Team Internet has not only met, but exceeded the ambitious goals we set at the beginning of the year. The Company's investment in innovation led to the launch of more new products than ever before. The Company also signed up a record number of new demand and supply side partners.

Our financial performance in 2023 stands as a testament to our strategic vision and operational efficiency. We improved our Adjusted EBITDA-to-Gross Profit ratio from 48% to 51%, reflecting our strong financial discipline and focus on profitability.

The concurrent rise of social media and user-generated content as dominant forms of online engagement, coupled with the increasing emphasis on data privacy, uniquely positions our Company. This landscape not only aligns with but actively propels our AI-based contextual advertising solutions. As such, we anticipate that these concurrent trends will significantly bolster our performance and help us outperform in any cycle."
