CEO Matthias Stadelmeyer's comments
Tradedoubler´s business continued to develop positively in the second quarter of 2022 and we were able to make another few steps forward in realizing results based on our amended market position and product portfolio.
Total revenue in Q2 grew by 12%, gross profit by 18% and EBITDA was SEK 16, all figures on currency adjusted comparison and without change related items.
Despite the macro-economic uncertainties we receive mainly positive signals from advertisers and partners. Our clients have ambitious growth targets and continue to invest significantly in performance marketing using our product portfolio of affiliate marketing, influencer marketing through the brand Metapic, app-install-business through the brand Appiness, and supporting display campaigns for brand awareness.
Our new products Metapic, Grow and Appiness continue to increase their share in our business and contribute now posivitively to the EBITDA result.
We see positive development in many industry verticals. Travel has the highest growth rates and is on pre covid levels now.
While there are some differences in the development of the regions due to different client portfolios and market environment, we have solid growth rates in all of them.
The increase of operational expenses compared to last year is directly linked to increased business activity as well as investments in our product platform and into the growth areas Metapic, Grow and Appiness.
In the coming quarters we will continue to further build on our market position and product portfolio. With these assets we will be able to continue our mission to grow the business of our clients and partners with meaningful results for all stakeholders. We enjoy a lot what we do and continue our mission with passion and courage. I look forward to your continued company on this journey.
