Cliq Digital AG releases preliminary figures for 2012 and outlook for 2013

  • 21/02/2013

– Revenues of EUR 69 million and operative EBITDA of EUR 11 million in 2012
both in line with guidance
– Net income improved strongly in the course of the year, up to EUR 0.4
in Q4 2012
– Positive outlook for 2013 with expected EBITDA of at least EUR 11.5

Dusseldorf, February 21, 2013 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of
mobile games, apps, software and entertainment content, announces its
preliminary figures for the 2012 financial year. The operative EBITDA
(earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; excluding
merger and restructuring costs) as the main performance indicator came in
at EUR 11 million in line with guidance (between EUR 10.5 million and EUR
12.5 million). Full year revenues amounted to EUR 69 million (guidance
between EUR 64 million and EUR 74 million). This reflects an increase in
revenues of 98% in comparison to 2011, mainly due to the successful
takeover of Cliq BV in February 2012.

Improved net income
Cliq Digital also turned positive for the first time in Q4 2012 with a net
income of EUR 0.4 million – up strongly compared to Q3 2012 (EUR -0.2
million). Hence, net income strongly improved in the course of 2012
totaling EUR 0.2 million in H2 2012 (H1 2012: -3.2 million) at the upper
end of the guidance of EUR -1.3 million to EUR 0.2 million.

Luc Voncken, CEO of Cliq Digital AG, is very pleased with the preliminary
figures: ‘Our strategy has developed positively with improved revenues and
earnings from our core business. Due to these successful developments,
management is optimistic for the current financial year and expects an
EBITDA of at least EUR 11.5 million.’

Revenues in the fourth quarter 2012 increased to EUR 17 million (Q3 2012:
EUR 15 million). In the same period operative EBITDA came in at EUR 2.0
million (Q3 2012: EUR 2.7 million). The decrease is mainly due to
additional marketing expenses of EUR 0.7 million in Q4 2012 – building a
strong base for improved earnings in the 2013 financial year.

All figures are on a pro forma basis, consolidating Cliq BV for full 12
months of the 2012 financial year. On IFRS basis, Cliq BV is consolidated
since February 2012. All figures are unaudited.
