Dusseldorf, May 21, 2014 – Cliq Digital AG, a leading provider of mobile games, apps, software and entertainment, reports its financial figures for the first quarter of 2014 financial year. Group revenues amounted to EUR 9.9 million (Q1 2013: EUR 14.6 million). Overhead is further reduced by 20% (Q1 2013: EUR 2.5 million vs. Q1 2014: EUR 2.0 million). EBITDA (earnings before interests, taxes, depreciation and amortization) reached EUR 397k (Q1 2013: EUR 2.5 million). Net earnings came in at EUR 124k (Q1 2013: EUR 674k).

First quarter 2014 showed a strong upward trend in marketing spend in comparison to previous fourth quarter 2013. To normalize this effect the company decided to change the accounting policy on how to account for marketing spend. By this, the marketing costs are more aligned with the future revenue. Due to the stronger marketing spend, subscriptions increased by about 30% to 1.3 million (Q4 2013: 1.0 million).

The new financing agreement with Commerzbank was concluded at the End of March. With effect from April 2014 onwards, monthly redemption for the term loan has been lowered from EUR 750,000 to EUR 187,500. The company realized a one time positive effect on its financing structure (bank debt) of EUR 0.5 million after deduction of costs related to the new financing agreement.
