Strong revenue and earnings development
The strong increase in gross and net revenue was driven by both, the significant rise in marketing spend (up 66% in H1 2020 compared to H1 2019, up 78% in Q2 2020 compared to Q2 2019) combined with an improved CLIQ factor of 1.64 during the first half year of 2020 compared to 1.40 in the first half year 2019 and a growing base of members. The customers base value, an important indicator for estimating the expected net revenue based on existing members, increased to EUR 31.0 million at the end of Q2 2020 compared to EUR 24.5 million at the end of Q2 2019 and EUR 29.0 million at the end of Q1 2020. The increase of the CLIQ factor (representing the ratio of revenue to costs per member (customer) as a key indicator for measuring the profitability of new members) underlines the successful integration of the direct media buy strategy by the CLIQ Digital Group.
The strong performance has resulted in an increase of the gross margin by 81% to EUR 14.3 million compared to HY1 2019. The strong increase in gross margin resulted in an impressive increase (+246%) in EBITDA for the first half year of 2020 to EUR 6.3 million compared to EUR 1.8 million in the first half year of 2019. On a second quarter comparison EBITDA increased by 200% from EUR 1.4 million in Q2 2019 to EUR 4.1 million in Q2 2020. Net result before non-controlling interest almost tripled from EUR 1.5 million in H1 2019 to EUR 4.4 million in H1 2020. Earnings per share increased in the first half of 2020 to EUR 0,49 (H1 2019: EUR 0,08).
