tonies raises profitability guidance for FY 2022
Luxembourg, October 27, 2022 – Today, the management board of tonies SE (“tonies” or the “Company”, ISIN: LU2333563281, Frankfurt Stock Exchange: TNIE) decided to raise its guidance for Adjusted EBITDA margin for the full-year 2022 and confirm its guidance for revenue.
Based on business development in the first nine months of 2022 (group revenue growth of 30% to EUR 138m) and assumptions regarding progress to the end of the year, tonies has decided to confirm its revenue guidance at EUR 250 million for the group and at EUR 52 million for the US and raise its outlook for Adjusted EBITDA margin for the full-year 2022 to a range of -5% to -2%. Previously, only a slight improvement of the Adjusted EBITDA margin compared to the full-year 2021 was expected (FY 2021: -8.1%). The margin increase is the result of a higher than originally anticipated contribution margin due to a stronger improvement in gross margin, lower fulfilment costs and lower licensing costs, including non-recurring effects due to the release of licensing provisions.
This new outlook is based on the assumption that consumer sentiment will not worsen significantly in the fourth quarter, where tonies typically generates a substantial share of revenues, especially during Christmas season.
On Friday, 28 October 2022, tonies will publish its trading update for the third quarter 2022 and hold a presentation on its results at 11 am CET. The dial-in information can be soon found under https://tonies.com/en-gb/ir/?tab=financial-calendar.
Management provides Adjusted EBITDA margin as a key figure for the Group’s operating business performance. It is defined as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of Revenue. Adjusted EBITDA is an alternative performance measure, which is defined as Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) adjusted for certain non-recurring effects, as described in the Company’s Annual Report 2021, which has been published on the Company’s investor relations website.
