Trading Update

The Company expects to report revenue of c.USD 335 million and Adjusted EBITDA1 of c.USD 38 million for the six months ending 30 June 2022, up by 92% and 85% respectively. Year-on-year pro forma organic growth2 for the trailing twelve months ending 30 June 2022 is c.62%. This outperformance has largely resulted from the growth of our Online Marketing Segment, driven by increased demand for our privacy-safe online customer acquisition services.

The Company maintained a strong balance sheet during the period, with gross cash increasing by 68% to USD 94m3 as at 30 June 2022 from USD 56m as at 31 December 2021, whilst Net Debt4 decreased by 20% to c.USD 65m as at 30 June 2022 from c.USD 81m as at 31 December 2021. Adjusted operating cash conversion continued to be in excess of 100%. 


While the Directors remain vigilant concerning the current global macro-economic environment, the Board has confidence that the Group will meet at least the upper end of current market expectations for the FY22 financial year5.

CentralNic is also pleased to announce that FTSE Russell has recently included CentralNic Group PLC in its AIM 100 and AIM UK 50 indices for the first time. The inclusion of CentralNic within these indices was effective from 20 June 2022.
