In H1 2021, MeinAuto Group continued its strong and profitable growth (on an adjusted EBITDA basis). In the first six months of 2021 the Group's adjusted revenue grew by 21% to €118.5 million (H1 2020: €97.9 million) and adjusted EBITDA grew by 28.5% to €18.5 million (H1 2020: €14.4 million).

With the strong performance of its B2C segment, the Group has continued to outgrow the German new car market. Even as new car registrations in Germany decreased by 19% from 2019 to 2020 due to Covid-19 related effects, B2C subscription orders on MeinAuto.de increased by 40%.
