HomeToGo targets to achieve EUR 1 billion in Booking Revenues by 2028-29 and releases its 2022 outlook, expecting to deliver continued strong growth

  • HomeToGo targets EUR 1 billion in Booking Revenues by 2028-29: Growing its business at a CAGR of 30-35%
  • Strong 2022 outlook[1]: IFRS Revenues to grow by 27 - 32% y-o-y. Adjusted EBITDA expected to be in the EUR (25) - (35) million range
  • Record 2021 financial results proved a resilient business model: IFRS Revenues of EUR 94.8 million (+44% vs. FY'20 and +36% vs. FY'19), Booking Revenues of EUR 123.6 million (+51% vs. FY'20 and +55% vs. FY'19) and Onsite Booking Revenues of EUR 50.2 million (+116% vs. FY'20 and +151% vs. FY'19)

Luxembourg, 31 March 2022 - Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO of HomeToGo: "It is difficult to announce business-as-usual updates when a war is continuing to ravage Ukraine. Our thoughts are with those impacted by this crisis and as a team we are supporting donation, grassroots and accommodation efforts to help Ukrainian refugees. We continue to stand in solidarity with Ukraine and hope for a resolution as soon as possible."

"Despite these terrible circumstances, today we share our ambitious outlook and goal for 2028-29: growing our business to EUR 1 billion in Booking Revenues as we continue to deliver on our vision of making incredible homes easily accessible to everyone. We are ideally positioned with the shift towards alternative accommodation becoming the new zeitgeist. We aim to become the go-to destination for travelers with the world's most comprehensive inventory, and advance new technology solutions for our partners to evolve to an operating system that elevates the entire industry. We will continue to invest in our onsite business and scale our Subscriptions & Services, while increasing efforts for our U.S. business and accelerating our global growth through strategic M&A. Today's outlook is incredibly exciting as it underlines that we are only just getting started and are poised to unlock new potential in 2022 and beyond," Dr. Patrick Andrae continued.

Positive outlook and strategic highlights for 2022

Following the strong 2021 results and an excellent start to 2022, HomeToGo expects IFRS Revenues to increase 27 - 32% year-on-year to EUR 120-125 million. This will be underpinned by an ongoing focus on strengthening HomeToGo's onsite business and customer retention, while further scaling Subscriptions & Services through an emphasis on new features and synergies for supply partners. As a result, HomeToGo anticipates that the Group will generate an Adjusted EBITDA of EUR (25) - (35) million in 2022.

The Group will further complement organic growth with targeted M&A activities - having already started the year with the successful acquisition of AMIVAC, the vacation rental business unit of Groupe SeLoger, expanding inventory in France and driving growth in its Subscriptions & Services offering.

Today, HomeToGo also announced the acquisition of e-domizil GmbH, which has more than 370,000 offers in its inventory and includes the brands e-domizil, tourist-online.de, BELLEVUE Ferienhaus, PREMIUM SELECTION by e-domizil, and atraveo. With a fully onsite business model, e-domizil demonstrated strong profitable growth and IFRS Revenues of more than EUR 20 million in 2021. e-domizil will contribute to HomeToGo's growing onsite business as well as continued global expansion.

Delivering on HomeToGo's strategic agenda in 2021 and resilience despite COVID-19

Despite an overall difficult year for the travel industry, HomeToGo clearly demonstrated the resilience of its business model. HomeToGo grew its site traffic by +20% (vs. FY'20 and +27% vs. FY'19) and delivered on its ambitious growth targets, with IFRS Revenues exceeding the already increased guidance of EUR 85-90 million with EUR 94.8 million (+44% vs. FY'20 and +36% vs. FY'19).

Booking Revenues grew by +51% vs. FY'20 (+55% vs. FY'19) to EUR 123.6 million - by far the highest absolute growth in Booking Revenues in any year in the Group's history thus far. Adjusted EBITDA was at EUR (21.1) million. For Q4'21, IFRS Revenues were EUR 21.2 million (+150% vs. Q4'20 and +120% vs. Q4'19) and Booking Revenues were EUR 23.1 million (+109% vs. Q4'20 and +66% vs. Q4'19), with an Adjusted EBITDA of EUR (4.4) million.

The Group also further grew its onsite business with onsite Booking Revenues increasing to EUR 50.2 million for the full year (+116% vs. FY'20 and +151% vs. FY'19) and increasing more than threefold to EUR 8.8 million in Q4'21 (+253% vs. Q4'20 and +128% vs. Q4'19), boosting HomeToGo's share of onsite business to 44%[2] for the full year (+42% in share vs. FY'20 and +66% in share vs. FY'19). This allowed the Group to capture more value per customer transaction and build closer relationships with both customers and suppliers, resulting in an increased customer lifetime value.
