HomeToGo Reports Impressive Finish to 2022 - IFRS Revenues Slightly Surpass Upgraded Full Year Guidance
Luxembourg, 1 March 2023 - HomeToGo SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: HTG), the marketplace with the world's largest selection of alternative accommodation, today released preliminary figures for the full year 2022. The Company announced that FY/22 IFRS Revenues grew 54% YoY to EUR 146 million (vs. EUR 95 million in FY/21). This slightly surpasses HomeToGo’s upgraded guidance - around the higher end of a range of EUR 141-146 million - and is well ahead of the initial 2022 guidance of EUR 120-125 million. The preliminary, underlying Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be at EUR (21) million (vs. the upgraded Adjusted EBITDA in the (20) - (25) million range and the initial Adjusted EBITDA in the EUR (25) - (35) million range).
HomeToGo had previously announced on 18 January 2023 a record Booking Revenues Backlog of EUR 32 million at the start of 2023, growing 72% YoY (vs. EUR 19 million at the start of 2022), reinforcing its confidence in achieving Adjusted EBITDA break-even in 2023.
Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO of HomeToGo: “In the last quarter of 2022 we had our full focus on the upcoming booking high season, as already demonstrated by our record Booking Revenues Backlog for 2023. We’re proud to have concluded 2022 with IFRS Revenues and Adjusted EBITDA around the upper end of our upgraded guidance, improving profitability whilst already building momentum for 2023. Our Onsite business has grown to now be almost the total size of HomeToGo in 2019 in terms of IFRS Revenues and the strong increase in Subscriptions & Services IFRS Revenues was an even better than anticipated finish to the year. Looking ahead and based on the continued strong trading in the first two months of the year, we are very confident we will achieve Adjusted EBITDA break-even in 2023."
In 2022, HomeToGo continued to deliver strong business growth across key pillars, which are reflected in its preliminary results. The Company more than doubled its Onsite IFRS Revenues to EUR 67 million, increasing by 111% YoY (vs. EUR 32 million in FY/21) as more travelers booked offers directly on the HomeToGo domains. The Company’s Subscriptions & Services business grew to EUR 24 million, increasing by 169% YoY (vs. EUR 9 million in 2021) and notably growing 517% Yo3Y (vs. EUR 4 million in FY/19). Subscriptions & Services accounts for 16% of total IFRS Revenues in 2022 and exemplifies the strong contributions from its portfolio, including its B2B SaaS solution Smoobu.
With this impressive finish to FY/22, an excellent start to 2023 with a record Booking Revenues Backlog and strong traction on trading in the first two months, HomeToGo continues to be very confident to achieve Adjusted EBITDA break-even in 2023. An outlook for the financial year 2023 will be released with the publication of the Annual Report for the fiscal year 2022 on 30 March 2023.

Non-IFRS and Other Financial and Operating Metrics
Adjusted EBITDA: Net income (loss) before (i) income taxes; (ii) finance income, finance expenses; (iii) depreciation and amortization; adjusted for (iv) expenses for share-based compensation and (v) one-off items. One-off items relate to one-time and therefore non-recurring expenses and income outside the normal course of operational business. Among others those would include for example income and expenses for business combinations and other merger & acquisitions (M&A) activities, litigation, restructuring, government grants and other items that are not recurring on a regular basis and thus impede comparison of the underlying operational performance between financial periods.
Booking Revenues: Non-IFRS operating metric to measure intra-month performance view defined as net Euro value of the commission generated by transactions (CPA, CPC, CPL etc.) before cancellation.
Onsite Booking: Where the complete transaction from discovery to payment happens on HomeToGo domains without the user being referred to a third party supplier website.
 Booking Revenues generated in 2022 or prior with IFRS Revenues recognition in FY2023, incl. SECRA and e-domizil
