YOC AG back on growth track in the second half of 2018
- Revenue decline of the first half of 2018 stopped
- Balanced operating result in the third quarter of 2018

Berlin, 22 November 2018 - In the third quarter of 2018, YOC AG (Frankfurt, Prime Standard, ISIN DE0005932735) stopped the negative revenue trend of the first half of 2018. In the third quarter of 2018, revenues of EUR 3.3 million were generated, which is already on previous year's level. At the same time, this corresponds to a revenue increase of 11 % compared to the previous quarter (Q2/2018: EUR 3.0 million) and the achievement of a balanced operating result before depreciation and amortization (Q3/2017: EUR -0.2 million).
As a consequence, the Company recorded revenues of EUR 9.1 million (9M/2017: EUR 10.1 million) in the first nine months of fiscal year 2018. The decline in sales in the current fiscal year was thus reduced to 10%. The operating result before depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) 9M/2018 remained at the previous year's level of EUR -0.4 million.
In the third quarter of 2018, the company expanded its product portfolio with the introduction of the YOC Mystery Scroller, a further high impact advertising format that has already made a noticeable contribution to sales development. With the successive development of new product lines, the YOC Group is pursuing the strategic goal of continuously providing the market with innovative, high-quality advertising products.
