Netgem (ISIN: FR0004154060, Reuters: ETGM.PA, Bloomberg: ALNTG FP): Annual turnover and outlook

PARIS — Netgem announces its revenue and gross profit for fiscal year 2022, amounting to €36.3 million and €20.1 million, respectively up 28% and 14% compared to fiscal year 2021.

In millions of euros  2022  2021  Change
--------------------  ----  ----  ------
Revenue               36.3  28.3    +28%
Gross Profit          20.1  17.6    +14%

The company ends 2022 with a base of 508.000 subscribers, managed on behalf of some twenty fixed telecommunications operators in Europe, under the operators’ brands (B2B2C).

The total annual turnover resulting from the TV streaming activity stands at €29.5 million, of which €14.4 million are annual recurring revenue (ARR). Other revenues from this activity amount to €15,1 million and include in particular the sale of access equipment, service activation costs and non-recurring services. The group’s gross cash amounted to €6.2 million at the end of December.

Perspectives for 2023

The Company anticipates growth in its subscribers base beyond 20% in 2023, driving a similar growth in its ARR. The revenues generated by the subcribers base will be sufficient to finance this growth. Free cash flow will therefore be positive in 2023.

The rapid evolution of the market towards standardized set-top boxes based on Android TV should also allow the Company to completely withdraw from the sale of access equipment and the associated working capital requirements.

In this favorable context for the activity, Netgem has decided to initiate the sale of its activities other than TV streaming, which are located within its French subsidiary Vitis. These disposals should take place during the first half of 2023.

The resources thus released will be reinvested in enriching its product and in expanding its addressable market. The group also intends to simplify its organization in 2023, enabling a significant reduction in overheads.

For Mathias Hautefort, CEO of Netgem, “Our figures show that meets consumer expectations for integrated family entertainment offers at the right price, and the needs of telecom operators to rely on business experts in the extremely dynamic digital entertainment sector. Building on these successes, we need to improve our product and expand its distribution even more. The sale of our diversification activities will give us the resources for this and guarantee the focus of the company.”

The company announces that it has been informed that its reference shareholder J2H has increased its stake from 24.7% to 29.3% of the capital by buying part of the participations of Mr. Olivier Guillaumin and Mr. Christophe Aulnette, who have resigned from the Board of Directors. The Company, its President Joseph Haddad, and its Board of Directors would like to warmly thank Mr. Guillaumin and Mr. Aulnette for their unwavering support and their major contribution to the creation and development of the company.
