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.

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.
