Artnet publishes Q3 Report: 8% revenue increase driven by continued strong growth in Media Segment
New York/ Berlin, November 15, 2022: Artnet AG, today published its results for the third quarter of the current fiscal year in line with requirements set by the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. As reflected in the Report, Artnet recorded robust growth, with total revenue increasing 8% in the first nine months of the year despite signs of increasingly difficult market conditions.
Artnet’s Media segment grew an unprecedented 59% through the third quarter, and is expected to continue its strong growth trajectory through the end of the year. Demand for advertising has risen to an all time high as Artnet leverages its high-value audience of dedicated readers.
Marketplace revenues decreased 9% through the third quarter driven primarily by softening transactional volume in the mid-market. Key strategic and operational changes have been implemented ahead of the fourth quarter, typically the strongest for the segment. Top lots at Artnet Auctions during the third quarter of 2022 included German artist Gerhard Richter’s Cage 1-6, which realized 175,000 USD including premium; Friedel Dzubas’ Wendover, which was hammered down at 175,000 USD including premium; as well as Frank Stella’s iconic Targowica which realized 137,000 USD including premium.
The release of the new Price Database is set to drive growth in the Data segment in the second half of the year. Currently in a Beta environment for existing Artnet subscribers, the new Price Database provides a redesigned, mobile-first user experience that allows for optimized search and navigation. It is built on a new API first data architecture, providing significant new data delivery opportunities moving forward.
By harnessing the unique synergies between the Company’s Media, Marketplace, and Data segments, Artnet is positioned to capture the nascent shift in purchasing behavior towards online transactions by providing a holistic online ecosystem for the global art market.
