Development in revenue and earnings

The CLIQ Digital Group has started the year 2017 successful and increased its revenues by 11% to EUR 17.6 million in the period January to March 2017 (Q1 2016: EUR 15.8 million). The double-digit growth in revenues was achieved, although the company’s marketing spend in the first quarter of 2017 of EUR 4.9 million is approximately 15% below the previous year’s level (Q1 2016: EUR 5.7 million).

The consolidated results also developed positively. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) amounted to EUR 6.5 million in the first quarter of 2017 (Q1 2016: EUR 6.4 million). EBIT rose even stronger, up by 43% to EUR 1.1 million (Q1 2016: EUR 0.7 million). As a result, the EBIT margin rose to 6.0% (Q1 2016: 4.7%) compared to the previous year.

The cumulative earnings per share (EPS) improved to EUR 0.09 in the reporting period (Q1 2016: EUR 0.06).

Development of KPI’s

Thanks to the strategic focus of CLIQ Digital AG on high-margin markets, the CLIQ factor, the ratio of revenue to costs per customer, as a key indicator of the profitability of new customers, continued to grow in the first quarter of 2017 to 1.44 after reaching 1.41 in 2016. Concentrating on countries with a high CLIQ factor has impacted the marketing spend in the first quarter, whereby the latter was also influenced by stricter regulations in some countries.
