Back to overview

Nuremberg, Amsterdam, February 21, 2014 – Based on preliminary figures, ad pepper media International N.V. can post its best results since 2006. All key profitability figures are positive. The company’s EBITDA amounted to EUR 4,964k (2012: EUR -4,165k), while EBIT for the past financial year totaled EUR 4,690k (2012: EUR -4,631k). EBT for the 2013 financial year amounted to EUR 5,293k (2012: EUR -4,733k). These pleasing results were driven by proceeds from sales of company shareholdings, especially Emediate ApS and Crystal Semantics Ltd, which contributed a total of EUR 8,195k to earnings.

In terms of sales, the ad pepper media Group reported a 9.8 percent reduction to EUR 49,627k (2012: EUR 55,022k). At 41.7 percent, the gross margin remained roughly stable compared with the previous year’s figure (2012: 42.1 percent). By analogy with sales, gross profit in absolute figures fell 10.5 percent to EUR 20,701k (2012: EUR 23,137k). This development was mainly attributable to the ad pepper media segment, which reported a 21 percent downturn.

Due to disposals of shareholdings, liquid funds (including securities measured at fair value and time deposits) rose significantly to EUR 21,702k (December 31, 2012: EUR 15,749k). This corresponds to EUR 0.94 per share. The company still has no liabilities to banks. The equity ratio rose to 67.8 percent (December 31, 2012: 57.4 percent).

The 2013 Annual Report will be published on March 22, 2014.
