26th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth
Consolidated growth: +80.6%
Organic growth : +23.4%
Freelance.com (Euronext Growth Paris - FR0004187367 - ALFRE), the leader in relationship management between businesses and their external talent, has published its revenue for the 2nd quarter of 2022 (period from April 1 to June 30, 2022) and for the first half of 2022 (period from January 1 to June 30, 2022).
Strong growth momentum confirmed in the 2nd quarter
In line with its performance at the beginning of the financial year, Freelance.com recorded revenue of €201.5 million in the 2nd quarter, up 77.9% compared with the same quarter of the previous year. This evolution was driven both by continued excellent momentum of the historical scope (27.3% on a constant scope basis over the quarter), and by the integration of Helvetic Payroll. This was the Group's 26th consecutive quarter of double-digit revenue growth, twenty of which were above the 20% mark.
Cumulative revenue for the first half of the year amounted to €383.0 million, up 80.6% on a consolidated basis and 23.4% on an organic basis, compared to the same period last year.
A performance driven by all Group zones
In France, Freelance.com's revenue soared 31.5% in the 2nd quarter of 2022 alone to €129.1 million (compared with €98.2 million in the 2nd quarter of 2021). Half-year performance was up 29.6% to €237.5 million (versus €183.3 million in the 1st half of 2021).
Freelance.com recorded international revenue of €72.3 million in the 2nd quarter of 2022, an increase nearly fivefold compared to the 2nd quarter of 2021. Beside the consolidation of Helvetic Payroll, the Group also benefitted from the positive evolution of the euro against the Swiss franc.
Overall, contributions of France and international operations remained stable at around 60% and 40% of consolidated revenue, respectively.
Short- and medium-term financial objectives confirmed
Following an excellent first half of 2022, the Group intends to pursue its strategy, based in particular on integrating the latest acquisitions in France and internationally and continuing to promote sales synergies.
In this positive context, and despite the caution imposed by the current macroeconomic environment, the Group confirms its short- and medium-term growth objectives, with double-digit growth of revenue in 2022, that which should approach €800 million, and reach the €1 billion mark by 2025.
