HomeToGo Delivers Record Q3 with Highest Profit Ever, Upgrading Full-Year Guidance Again as it Continues On Path to Break-Even Profitability in 2023
Luxembourg, 10 November 2022 - HomeToGo SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: HTG), the marketplace with the world's largest selection of vacation rentals, today announced its results for the third quarter of 2022. With further progress on its strategic priorities, strong profitability, and a positive Net Income, HomeToGo achieved a record Q3.
In Q3/22 HomeToGo continued to deliver strong business growth, accelerated by the post-pandemic travel rebound and summer travel high. Booking Revenues increased by 53.2% YoY to EUR 42.5 million (vs. EUR 27.8 million in Q3/21) amid high last-minute bookings, particularly in July and August, while IFRS Revenues grew by 59.8% YoY to a record high of EUR 69.7 million (vs. EUR 43.6 million in Q3/21) and notably by 123.6% Yo3Y.
Underpinning this development and in-line with its strategy, HomeToGo has continued to expand both its Onsite and Subscriptions & Services businesses. As more customers booked offers directly on the HomeToGo domains, Onsite Booking Revenues increased by 29.4% YoY to EUR 16.3 million (vs. EUR 12.6 million in Q3/21) and Onsite IFRS Revenues by 100.8% YoY to EUR 39.2 million (vs. EUR 19.4 million in Q3/21), notably a surge of 302.6% Yo3Y. Overall, the Onsite business share was 45.4% (vs. 49.8% in Q3/21), reflecting the high last-minute customer demand that also contributed to growth in its Offsite business. Subscriptions & Services grew by 246.3% YoY in IFRS Revenues to EUR 8.5 million (vs. EUR 2.4 million in Q3/21) - also a new record. This includes a strong contribution from its B2B SaaS solution, Smoobu, and positive consolidation effects from the acquisition of SECRA in June.
As HomeToGo continues to pave the way for break-even profitability in 2023, Q3/22 Adjusted EBITDA grew by 60.0% YoY to an all-time high of EUR 24.1 million (vs. EUR 15.1 million in Q3/21), equivalent to an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 34.7% (vs. 34.6% in Q3/21). Net Income improved significantly YoY to an all-time high of EUR 12.5 million (vs. EUR (102.2) million in Q3/21) due to a strong operational performance and the absence of de-SPAC related one-off effects.
In view of the financial and operational performance, and the favorable market context for alternative accommodation, HomeToGo has upgraded its FY/22 guidance for the second time and now expects IFRS Revenues to grow by 48-54% to EUR 141-146 million and an Adjusted EBITDA of EUR (20)-(25) million, with an Adjusted EBITDA margin of (14)-(18)%.
Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO of HomeToGo: “In this post-pandemic travel rebound, the long-term trend towards alternative accommodation has continued to accelerate. Even as we are facing a period of global macroeconomic uncertainty, the travel sector showed continuous resilience and vacation rentals are the preferred choice. During this highly profitable and record third quarter, we have once again demonstrated exceptional growth across all parts of our business. Upgrading our guidance for the full year for the second time reflects our confidence in the market and our continued progress. We will remain focused on delivering on our strategy, unlocking value for our shareholders and advancing on our path to profitability, with the goal of achieving Adjusted EBITDA break-even in 2023.”
Today HomeToGo will also hold its Capital Markets Day, where the management team will share a detailed overview of the company’s strategy with a particular focus on demand, product, supply and HomeToGo’s path to profitability in 2023.
