This equity issue will provide NetBooster with additional financial resources to pursue under optimal conditions its growth strategy combining international expansion and commercial development.

NetBooster publishes a strong second Quarter 2016 Results

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European digital performance marketing agency, today announces record results for the second quarter of 2016, with Gross Margin increase 16% and EBITDA up 25% over the same period in 2015.

NetBooster continues to deliver on promises made in 2015, with the Company hitting growth targets and delivering solid EBITDA margins in line with management expectations.  Q2, 2016 Gross Margin increased from €8.7m in the same period of 2015  to €10.1m in 2016, whilst EBITDA grew from €1.2m in Q2, 2015 to €1.5m in Q2, 2016. Moreover, profitability continued to improve, hitting a new level of 14.9% in Q2, 2016.

2016-07-20 15_42_16-D6 NetBooster - Q2 2016 PR_Draft_20.07.2016 - English - Microsoft Word

 

In 2016, NetBooster successfully won new blue chip clients, extending the portfolio to include; a well-known international car rental company, a global music streaming service provider, a worldwide leading sport and fashion brand and a large package travel provider. These new clients are serviced across multiple channels and territories, demonstrating the significant demand for NetBooster’s global digital marketing capabilities and further cementing the Group’s overall strategy. In addition, the existing client base is not only growing, but also evolving, with a distinct shift from pure digital performance budgets into the digital awareness space. This is challenging the dominant traditional media agencies and providing further opportunities for NetBooster to pick away at their market share.

The partnership with US based PMX Agency has already borne fruit in enhancing the credibility of the Company’s global strategy and helped to win strategically significant new clients that are to be reported on in the near future.

OUTLOOK 2016

The management is confident in the EBITDA target of €5.5m and strong top-level growth in line with the first and second quarter of 2016. 

Tim Ringel, CEO of NetBooster, commented:NetBooster is in the best shape ever from a client structure, efficiency, team-strength and a financial performance perspective. Clients especially value our innovative approach, transparency and deep product knowledge. Supporting our clients in digital performance marketing is a given today. Interestingly, guiding them on their overall digital marketing strategy and awareness budgets are now firmly on the agenda too; creating extensive growth opportunities for NetBooster Group.”

Display-Performance-Kampagne für Center Parcs Europe

 

Erfolgreicher Test mit Online-Videos in drei Ländern

Parallel zur Schaltung von TV-Spots in Belgien, den Niederlanden und in Deutschland beauftragte Center Parcs Europe die Performance-Marketingagentur metapeople mit einer Display-Performance-Kampagne im Web und auf Facebook. Ziel war neben einer Steigerung der Brand Awareness die gezielte Kommunikation des Frühbucher-Angebots von Center Parcs Europe, um mehr Buchungen für den Sommer zu erreichen. Nach dem erfolgreichen Testlauf hat Europas Spezialist für Familienkurzurlaub die Duisburger Performance-Architekten im Rahmen eines Jahresvertrags mit weiteren Aktivitäten betraut.

Die Wochen rund um Silvester sind für Reiseveranstalter und Ferienwohnungsvermieter die heißeste Zeit des Jahres, um möglichst viele Buchungen für den kommenden Sommer abzuschließen. Deshalb hat auch Center Parcs Europe zwischen Ende Dezember und Anfang Februar in mehreren Ländern eine TV-Kampagne gestartet, um für den Urlaub in seinen 25 Ferienparks – 21 Parks von Center Parcs und 4 Sunparks-Anlagen – zu werben. Parallel dazu wurde zum ersten Mal in Belgien, den Niederlanden und in Deutschland eine umfassende Display-Strategie mit Fokus auf die Bereiche Programmatic Display und Video umgesetzt. Der Einsatz von Rich Media-Formaten und Facebook Ads ergänzte diesen Ansatz. Auf ein granulares Set-Up, eine Optimierung anhand von Offsite-, sowie Onsite-Daten und die detaillierte Auswertung der einzelnen Maßnahmen wurde ein besonderer Schwerpunkt gelegt.

Die Entscheidung für einen Dienstleister zur Unterstützung fiel nach einem Pitch auf die Duisburger Performance-Agentur metapeople, die als Teil der NetBooster-Gruppe europaweit präsent ist. „Besonders das tiefgreifende Know-How in Bezug auf die Online-Marketing-Suite von DoubleClick hat uns überzeugt“, berichtet Claudia Bergholz, Group Online Media Specialist bei Center Pacs Europe in Brüssel. Aber auch die entgegenkommende, reibungslose Unterstützung im weiteren Verlauf – von der Planungsphase, über die Kampagnen-Umsetzung bis zur Präsentation der Endergebnisse – sei hervorzuheben. Dazu habe ebenfalls die flexible und schnelle Anpassung der geforderten Reportings für diesen ersten Testlauf gezählt.

Die Digital Marketing Suite von DoubleClick bildet bei dem Ferienparkbetreiber zusammen mit Google Analytics Premium ein einheitliches, geschlossenes System, um unter anderem kohärente Attributions-Modelle für Display-Branding-Kampagnen zu erstellen. „Wir richten unsere Display-Strategie, zu der auch die Social-Ads bei Facebook gehören, granular und basierend auf genau definierten KPIs aus“, so Claudia Bergholz. Diese Key Performance Indicators beruhen auf detaillierten Insights aus den einzelnen Märkten.

Konkret sollten in der „January Campaign“ die geschalteten TV-Spots zur Steigerung der Markenbekanntheit durch Online-Videos mit 20 bzw. 30 Sekunden Länge unterstützt werden. „Ziel war hierbei die Generierung einer möglichst großen Reichweite für das eingesetzte Budget mit einer hohen View- bzw. Completion-Rate“, erläutert Barbara Kochniss, Head of Media bei metapeople.

Zu den KPIs im Bereich Sales-Support zählten durch den Einsatz von Standard-Bannern sowie Rich-Media- und Facebook-Ads die Erhöhung der qualitativen Zugriffe auf die Landingpage, die Gewinnung von Neukunden, eine Optimierung der Bounce-Rate, die Zeitdauer der Webs-Sessions und letztendlich natürlich auch die Zahl der generierten Buchungen für den Sommer-Urlaub. „Es ist metapeople gelungen, unsere Strategie in ausgewogenen Mediaplänen sehr sensitiv pro Land umzusetzen“, fasst Claudia Bergholz das Ergebnis des ersten Tests zusammen, dem nun weitere gemeinsame Aktivitäten folgen.

Tableau Anglais

2015 was the year where growth returned, with the business continuing to refocus on large and profitable accounts and align the Group in terms of strategic objectives, financial goals and product offering.

  • New client wins with attractive blue chip, multinational players such as Estee Lauder, Euromaster and Dubai Parks & Resorts, providing a strong platform for future growth. In addition, NetBooster is growing with existing clients such as Deutsche Telekom, by being a full service provider for them.
  • By offering all-performance channels on an international level, NetBooster is the ideal partner to help blue-chip and multinational players roll-out their digital strategy. As a result, NetBooster is challenging the big media agencies in this space, as they are just starting to focus on digital performance.
  • In February 2016, NetBooster announced a new strategic partnership deal with PM Digital of the U.S., thereby forming one of the biggest independent performance agency networks in the world (25+ offices, 800 employees and managing over $500m media spend). This strategic partnership is enabling the two agencies to work alongside one another; leveraging their powerful international footprint, respective product offerings, employees and technology to the benefit of their clients.

NetBooster’s CEO, Tim Ringel, commented: “I am delighted to announce that 2015 was the best ever year in NetBooster’s history both from a business and financial perspective. NetBooster has posted landmark results in 2015 for the second year in a row, a product of the combined efforts of all our committed, creative and hard-working colleagues. The platform we have built over the last three years has now put us in a position to evolve from being a Europe focused international player into a global digital media performance agency. We see that clients come to us because we’re transparent, efficient and client centric and can deliver the service that they want. I’m proud of what has been achieved, but believe our most exciting years lie ahead of us.”

The new senior secured facility consists of a €10.7m tranche that will be used to reimbourse an existing convertible bond that comes due on the 23rd of March and smaller outstanding loans, as well as a €10m tranche that is dedicated to finance our envisaged growth plans. The latter represents a key cornerstone of management’s promise to deliver continued strong growth and global expansion.

The new arrangements offer NetBooster considerable flexibility, with 50% of the transaction coming in the form of a bullet type euro private placement maturing in 2022 and 50% in the form of a traditional amortising loan with a term of 5 years and 9 months. Credit du Nord was appointed Lead Arranger on the transaction and jointly structured it with Tikehau Investment Management’s NOVI I fund. Two other large European banks, BNP Paribas and Société Générale and a global player, HSBC, made up the rest of the pool.

Tim Ringel, CEO of NetBooster S.A. commented: “This financing round represents the culmination of many years of hard work, solidifies NetBooster’s balance sheet with an attractive, long term financing structure, whilst also prefunds our ambitious growth plans to evolve into a global digital media agency. We would particularly like to extend our thanks to our financing partners for their continuing support and confidence in the prospects of the NetBooster group”  

Nathalie Bleunven of Tikehau Investment Management opined: “We are delighted to assist NetBooster in diversifying its financing arrangements and putting in place a long term solution that hits all of its objectives. Tikehau saw a unique investment opportunity in NetBooster, given the company’s strong position in the digital marketing domain, its proven track record in delivering results, its strong management team and its exciting international development plans.”

Alexandre Quevat and Bertrand Descours of Credit du Nord Corporate Finance commented: “Credit du Nord was delighted to be appointed Lead Arranger on this transaction; beating off strong competition from NetBooster’s banking pool. An innovative financing structure won the day, with the proposed solution being oversubscribed and two new banks and a Euro PP house being added to NetBooster’s core banking relationships.”

NetBooster to move to IFRS

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, today announces its move to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The switch to IFRS will provide investors and other users of financial statements with the ability to compare the financial performance of NetBooster on a like-for-like basis with its international peers and provide more transparency to investors on the Group’s performance. It represents yet another step in making NetBooster’s Investor Relations best in class, providing the investment community with the type of information that can inform their decisions on an investment in the group.

The key impact for the Group from a financial perspective will be in the net income line, with goodwill on historic acquisitions being subject to an annual impairment test, rather than being depreciated annually on a straight-line basis. Net income would thus have been approximatively €4m higher in 2014 under IFRS standards. All other material changes will be disclosed in the Company’s 2015 Annual Report. However, to give investors an orientation, non-audited 2013 and 2014 IFRS Financials are available on the Group’s website.

NetBooster will publish its first IFRS consolidated financial statements as of and for the three years ended December 31, 2015. The annual report 2015 will be published in April 2016.

In the first three months of 2015, NetBooster recorded an increase in EBITDA at €0.9m, from €0.7m in the same period 2014 (+29%) and a profitability level of 10.7% (8.2% in prior year). NetBooster’s Data & Analytics department starting projects with several new clients in the last months of 2014 supported the growth in EBIDTA during the quarter.

Q1 English

Gross Margin is stable at €8.4m (€8.5m in prior year). The win of new blue chip clients such as Adidas, Estée Lauder, Pierre & Vacances, Merck and Ulla Popken has been absorbed, from a Gross Margin perspective, by reduced budgets of existing clients (for example Bouygues Telecom).

OUTLOOK 2015
The management has set an EBITDA target of €5.5m to €6.0m for 2015 and continues to be confident that NetBooster is in a good position to achieve record results in the current year.

Tim Ringel, CEO of NetBooster, commented: “Our Q1, 2015 numbers show that NetBooster is delivering solid and consistent financial results paired with new client wins on a monthly base. NetBooster is ready for expansion and will do so due to new blue chip clients, an overall product strategy and geographical scale. Thanks to the transparent business model with our clients and the involvement in our customer’s digital strategy, we are positioned right next to the big media agencies as the new challenger in the industry.

NetBooster publishes its Year-End 2014 Results

NetBooster – 2014 Results 

Switch from restructuring to growth in 2015

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, today announces its financial results for year-ended 2014.

For the year-ended 2014, NetBooster recorded an EBITDA of €4.5m (compared to €2.7m in 2013) and a Gross Margin of €34.2m (stable compared to 2013, €34.4m) leading to a profitability level of 13.1% (compared to 7.9% for the year-ended 2013). Despite the goodwill amortization of €4m under French GAAP, the Company is reporting a positive Net Income.

In 2014, the Management team restructured the company and refocused efforts from a client, management, product and financial perspective. Principle amongst these included:

  • A decision to exit unprofitable client relationships, thereby accepting a decline in Revenue from €133m to €116m, whilst keeping a stable level of Gross Margin, which is the leading indicator for the operational business performance.
  • Optimising the Group’s cost base; consolidating its business activities in the UK, squeezing out minority shareholders in Guava Holding and thereby reducing the listing and associated costs therewith, combining the Company’s three German units and resizing the French business to actively improve profitability locally.
  • Streamlining our vision, aligning our product offering towards clients’ needs and improving our communication strategy. With a unique product offering, the right size to attract clients and by being a full service digital agency, NetBooster is challenging the big media agencies as they are just starting to focus on digital
  • New client wins with attractive blue chip, multinational players such as Estee Lauder, PSA, Nestle, Ringier, AXA Assistance, Standard Chartered, Jennyfer, Speedo and Maplin, providing a strong platform for future growth.
