Raketech fails to meet Q1 target

Raketech published its Q1 financial results last week. This appointment follows on from that. The figures show that, despite an increase of 20.1% in revenue (to EUR19.0m/PS16.3m/$20.6m), the adjusted EBITDA as well as net profit both fell.

Sub-affiliation revenue, which includes Raketech Network, AffiliationCloud and other parts of the company, rose 149.8%, to EUR9.0m. Affiliate marketing revenue dropped 18.5%, to EUR8.8m. Revenue from subscriptions and betting tips also fell 14.9%.

Sports betting revenues totalled EUR3.5m in Q1, down 7.5% on the previous year and representing 18.4% of revenue. Casino revenue grew 28.8%, to EUR15.5m or 81.6%, more than offsetting this decline.

The increase in operating costs was 47.5%, or EUR17.7m, higher than the previous year. After accounting for finance costs, tax and other expenses, the bottom line net profit fell by 93.8%.

The adjusted EBITDA fell by 17.2%, to EUR5.1m.
