Carsten Koerl, Chief Executive Officer of Sportradar said: “Our strong performance in the third quarter exceeded our expectations across all key financial metrics. We consistently managed to grow revenue, profitability and cash flows despite adverse market conditions during the first three quarters of 2022. The Company exceeds expectations quarter-in and quarter-out, and as a result of our operational performance – in particular the U.S. and the betting rest-of-world business – as well as our organizational streamlining, we are able to raise our full year guidance for revenue and increase the lower end of our Adjusted EBITDA range.”

“We are proud of the continuous success of our U.S. operations. We managed to generate a U.S. profit for the first time in the third quarter, displaying solid operational leverage in the business model. Underpinning this success is the extension of our long-term partnership with FanDuel. This partnership is a testimony for our strategy, to expand our relationships and become an embedded technology provider for our customers, based on strategic long-term deals with our league partners.”

Ulrich Harmuth, Interim Chief Financial Officer added: “The financial results in the third quarter demonstrated that Sportradar consistently has managed to grow almost three times faster than the underlying betting market and our growing scale has led to margin expansion – as indicated by the U.S. segment turning profitable in the third quarter. As a result of this strong momentum and based on what we can see today, our 2023 preliminary expectations are for revenue to grow in the mid-20’s percent while expanding Adjusted EBITDA margin above 2022 levels.

Segment Information

RoW Betting

  • Segment revenue in the third quarter of 2022 increased by 28% to €100.9 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. This growth was driven primarily by increased sales of our higher value-add offerings including Managed Betting Services (MBS), which increased 84% to €38.2 million, and Live Odds Services, which increased 12% to €27.1 million. MBS growth was attributable to a record annualized turnover3 of €19.0 billion and the success of our strategy to move existing customers to higher value add products.

  • Segment Adjusted EBITDA2 in the third quarter of 2022 increased 8% to €48.2 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin2 decreased to 48% from 57% in the third quarter of 2021 driven by inorganic investments into AI capabilities for our MBS business, expanding our sport rights portfolio, as well as temporary cost savings in sport rights and scouting from the prior year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

RoW Audiovisual (AV)

  • Segment revenue in the third quarter of 2022 increased by 14% to €33.1 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. Growth was driven by cross-selling audiovisual content to existing data customers and expanding AV portfolio sales with existing AV customers.

  • Segment Adjusted EBITDA2 in the third quarter of 2022 increased 32% to €12.6 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin2 increased to 38% from 33% compared with the third quarter of 2021 as a result of AV revenue growth.

United States

  • Segment revenue in the third quarter of 2022 increased by 61% to €31.6 million compared with the third quarter of 2021. This growth was driven by a strong increase of U.S. betting services, driven by cross-selling non-data products to betting operators as well as benefiting from our customers’ growth as a result of a development in the underlying market and new states legalizing betting.

  • Segment Adjusted EBITDA2 in the third quarter of 2022 was €3.4 million compared with a loss of (€6.6) million in the third quarter of 2021, primarily driven by enhanced operating leverage as a result of the growing scale of our business despite continuous investments in the U.S. segment's products and content portfolio. Segment Adjusted EBITDA margin2 improved to 11% from (34%) compared with the third quarter of 2021.

2 Non-IFRS financial measure; see “Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Operating Metrics” and accompanying tables for further explanations and reconciliations of non-IFRS measures to IFRS measures.
3 Turnover is the total amount of stakes placed and accepted in betting.

Costs and Expenses

  • Purchased services and licenses in the third quarter of 2022 increased by €18.1 million to €47.5 million compared with the third quarter of 2021, reflecting continuous investments in content creation and processing, higher event coverage and higher scouting costs. Of the total, approximately €13.7 million was expensed sports rights.

  • Personnel expenses in the third quarter of 2022 increased by €16.9 million to €68.3 million, an increase of 33% compared with the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted for inorganic hires, personnel cost grew 27% compared to the third quarter in 2021.

  • Other Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2022 decreased by €4.9 million to €20.3 million, as a result of our efforts to increase the effectiveness of our central services and due to one-time costs resulting from our initial public offering in September 2021.

  • Total sport rights costs in the third quarter of 2022 increased by €5.9 million to €34.6 million compared with the third quarter of 2021, primarily a result of costs associated with new acquired rights in 2022 for the ITF, UEFA and ATP.

Recent Business/Company Highlights

  • Sportradar and FanDuel sign long-term agreement for Official NBA data through the 2030-31 season. Providing FanDuel with a comprehensive portfolio of betting products and entertainment tools, Sportradar remains the preferred data and odds supplier to FanDuel through 2031. Using official NBA data, Sportradar and FanDuel will collaborate to enhance the sports betting experience with new offerings such as certain player tracking data to create props and same game parlays. Additionally, FanDuel will use Sportradar’s proprietary Live Channel Trading (LCT) product.

  • Sportradar reaffirms leadership position in cricket market with partnerships with Australian Premier Cricket competitions. Sportradar announced the renewal of partnership agreements with the top tier club cricket competitions in Tasmania, Queensland, and Western Australia. Currently, Sportradar is partners with every single state and territory cricket governing body in Australia. Extensions with these clubs enable Sportradar to remain the official streaming partner until mid-2025

  • Sportradar and International Golf Federation enter integrity partnership. Sportradar’s Integrity Services (SIS) unit signed a multi-year integrity partnership with the International Golf Federation (IGF). Under the terms of the initial two-year agreement, SIS will provide bet monitoring through its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) for several IGF competitions. Sportradar Integrity Services have detected more than 7,300 suspicious matches during the past 17 years, with over 600 taking place in 2022 alone.

  • Tennis Data Innovations and Sportradar team up to expand official tennis data distribution. The partnership sees the launch of a “new secondary feed,” to enable the provision of betting-related services based on official ATP Tour and ATP Challenger Tour scores to a suite of global bookmakers. Of significance, the partnership sees the ATP change its data framework, allowing bookmakers to have uninterrupted access to official data, as scores to date have been delivered directly from the umpire’s chair.

  • Sportradar continues to evolve its organizational structure to set it up for continued success in achieving its strategic goals around growth, organizational effectiveness and efficiency. The Company is optimizing its organization by appointing global leaders for content creation, product development and commercial excellence - with the U.S. retaining a dedicated go-to-market approach. With this new structure, the Company will become faster in decision-making and execution, and will be more effective and efficient in serving global customers with a growing global product portfolio. The net effect will also be to significantly reduce the number of direct reports to the CEO.

2 Non-IFRS financial measure; see “Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Operating Metrics” and accompanying tables for further explanations and reconciliations of non-IFRS measures to IFRS measures.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Operating Metrics
We have provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with IFRS, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted Free Cash Flow and Cash Flow Conversion (together, the “Non-IFRS financial measures”), as well as operating metrics, including Net Retention Rate. We use these non-IFRS financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to IFRS measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-IFRS financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-IFRS financial measures to investors.
Non-IFRS financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with IFRS. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-IFRS financial measures to their most directly comparable IFRS financial measures provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

  • “Adjusted EBITDA” represents profit (loss) for the period adjusted for share based compensation, depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of sports rights), impairment of intangible assets, other financial assets and equity-accounted investee, loss from loss of control of subsidiary, remeasurement of previously held equity-accounted investee, non-routine litigation costs, professional fees for SOX and ERP implementations, share of profit (loss) of equity-accounted investee (SportTech AG), foreign currency (gains) losses, finance income and finance costs, and income tax (expense) benefit and certain other non-recurring items, as described in the reconciliation below.
    License fees relating to sport rights are a key component of how we generate revenue and one of our main operating expenses. Such license fees are presented either under purchased services and licenses or under depreciation and amortization, depending on the accounting treatment of each relevant license. Only licenses that meet the recognition criteria of IAS 38 are capitalized. The primary distinction for whether a license is capitalized or not capitalized is the contracted length of the applicable license. Therefore, the type of license we enter into can have a significant impact on our results of operations depending on whether we are able to capitalize the relevant license. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA removes this difference in classification by decreasing our EBITDA by our amortization of sports rights. As such, our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA reflects the full costs of our sports right's licenses. Management believes that, by deducting the full amount of amortization of sport rights in its calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, the result is a financial metric that is both more meaningful and comparable for management and our investors while also being more indicative of our ongoing operating performance.
    We present Adjusted EBITDA because management believes that some items excluded are non-recurring in nature and this information is relevant in evaluating the results of the respective segments relative to other entities that operate in the same industry. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors for evaluating Sportradar’s operating performance against competitors, which commonly disclose similar performance measures. However, Sportradar’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled performance measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a substitute for any IFRS financial measure.
    Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA include significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation, or as an alternative to, or a substitute for, profit for the period, revenue or other financial statement data presented in our consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our IFRS results and using Adjusted EBITDA only as a supplemental measure.

  • “Adjusted EBITDA margin” is the ratio of Adjusted EBITDA to revenue.

  • “Adjusted Free Cash Flow” represents net cash from operating activities adjusted for payments for lease liabilities, acquisition of property and equipment, acquisition of intangible assets (excluding certain intangible assets required to further support an acquired business) and foreign currency gains (losses) on our cash equivalents. We consider Adjusted Free Cash Flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchase of property and equipment, of intangible assets and payment of lease liabilities, which can then be used to, among other things, to invest in our business and make strategic acquisitions. A limitation of the utility of Adjusted Free Cash Flow as a measure of liquidity is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in our cash balance for the year.

  • “Cash Flow Conversion” is the ratio of Adjusted Free Cash Flow to Adjusted EBITDA.

In addition, we define the following operating metric as follows:

  • “Net Retention Rate” is calculated for a given period by starting with the reported Trailing Twelve Month revenue, which includes both subscription-based and revenue sharing revenue, from our top 200 customers as of twelve months prior to such period end, or prior period revenue. We then calculate the reported trailing twelve-month revenue from the same customer cohort as of the current period end, or current period revenue. Current period revenue includes any upsells and is net of contraction and attrition over the trailing twelve months but excludes revenue from new customers in the current period. We then divide the total current period revenue by the total prior period revenue to arrive at our Net Retention Rate. We have referred to this calculation as “Dollar Based Net Retention Rate” in prior press releases, which is the same calculation we are now using for “Net Retention Rate.”

The Company is unable to provide a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to profit (loss) for the period, its most directly comparable IFRS financial measure, on a forward- looking basis without unreasonable effort because items that impact this IFRS financial measure are not within the Company’s control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. These items may include but are not limited to foreign exchange gains and losses. Such information may have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on the Company’s future financial results.
