HomeToGo reports strong operational and financial performance in Q2'22, paving the way for break-even profitability by FY'23
Luxembourg, 16 August 2022 - HomeToGo SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: HTG), the marketplace with the world's largest selection of vacation rentals, today announced its results for the second quarter of the year 2022 amid strong progress across strategic and financial targets. HomeToGo’s profitability, measured by Adjusted EBITDA margin, improved significantly by 68pp vs. Q2’21 to (17.1)%. With a high IFRS Revenues growth of 83.4% vs. Q2’21, notably 126% vs. Q2’19, HomeToGo continues to advance its business performance.
Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO of HomeToGo: “The second quarter of 2022 marks incredible growth in terms of our strategic priorities and performance. This strong momentum continues into the current Q3’22, reaching the best month ever for Booking Revenues in July this year. We are creating an unparalleled experience that drives increased customer engagement and deepens relationships with our travelers, while expanding our onsite offering and taking further strides to scale our Subscriptions & Services business. We have a very clear roadmap in place to foster our path to Adjusted EBITDA break-even by 2023, complemented by the already proven resilience of the vacation rental market and encouraging booking trends beyond the summer high season. This allows us to confidently look ahead to the future as we continue to deliver on our financial targets and make incredible homes easily accessible to everyone.”
In Q2’22, Onsite Booking Revenues made up 56.8% of Booking Revenues (vs. 52.8% in Q2’21) as partners increasingly opted to list onsite, growing by 12.2% YoY (410% Yo3Y) to EUR 23.5 million (vs. EUR 20.9 million in Q2’21) - a new all time high for Q2. Furthermore, HomeToGo’s Subscriptions & Services business grew significantly at 115.4% YoY, with high IFRS Revenues of EUR 4.9 million (vs. EUR 2.2 million in Q2’21), including a strong contribution from its SaaS solution, Smoobu.
The impressive strategic progress has resulted in exceptional financial results and continued growth. Q2’22 Booking Revenues reached a record in Q2 history, growing by 10.4% YoY to EUR 46.3 million (vs. EUR 41.9 million in Q2’21), against tough prior-year comparables and more evenly distributed booking patterns between Q1 and Q2 compared to the prior-year, fueled by a strong onsite performance. Notably, this momentum has continued into the current Q3’22, reaching the best month ever for Booking Revenues in July of this year. Q2’22 IFRS Revenues grew by 83.4% YoY to EUR 37.6 million (vs. EUR 20.5 million in Q2’21). This growth was driven by an accelerated onsite business, positive consolidation effects and further decreasing cancellations, which are still above pre-pandemic levels.
Profitability improved significantly in both absolute and relative terms compared to Q2’21, resulting in an Adjusted EBITDA of EUR (6.4) million in Q2’22 (vs. EUR (17.5) million in Q2’21) and an Adjusted EBITDA margin of (17.1)% (vs. (85.2)% in Q2’21). This is amid an improved marketing cost ratio on the back of persistent organic demand and positive consolidation effects of recent acquisitions of both e-domizil and SECRA. Given these results and proven resilience of the alternative accommodation industry, HomeToGo confirms its updated FY’22 outlook, with an expected growth in IFRS Revenues of 40-50% to EUR 133-143 million and an Adjusted EBITDA of EUR (22) - (32) million, positioning the company to achieve Adjusted EBITDA break-even by FY’23. HomeToGo increased its cash position to EUR 187.3 million at the close of Q2/2022, which is procuring a comfortable capital base for further growth of the business in the future.
