HomeToGo posts standout Q1’22 results - IFRS Revenues almost doubling, highest Booking Revenues on record - and updates 2022 guidance

  • IFRS Revenues in Q1’22 almost doubled with a growth of 98.4% y-o-y to EUR 18.9 million (vs. EUR 9.5 million in Q1’21)
  • Q1’22 Booking Revenues grew by 39% y-o-y, reaching EUR 43.4 million (vs. EUR 31.3 million in Q1’21), the highest Booking Revenues on record. Booking Revenues backlog[1] as per end of Q1’22 amounted to c. EUR 40 million, most of which will be recognized as IFRS Revenues upon check-in
  • Onsite Booking Revenues grew an outstanding 184% y-o-y to EUR 22.3 million (vs. EUR 7.8 million in Q1’21) and made up 55% of Booking Revenues[2], contributing to a higher take rate. Subscriptions & Services business more than doubled to EUR 3.2 million (vs. EUR 1.5 million in Q1’21)
  • Amid strong growth and especially accounting for the positive consolidation effects of the e-domizil acquisition from 1 April 2022, HomeToGo updates its 2022 Outlook: IFRS Revenues to grow by 40 - 50% y-o-y to EUR 133 to 143 million and adjusted EBITDA expected to be in the EUR (22) to (32) million range

Luxembourg, 17 May 2022 - HomeToGo SE (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: HTG), the marketplace with the world's largest selection of vacation rentals, today announced its standout first quarter financial results and significant wins across its strategic pillars of travelers, supply, and technology, as the Group advanced on its strong growth trajectory.

Dr. Patrick Andrae, Co-founder & CEO of HomeToGo: “Looking ahead to the summer high season and as the travel market continues to recover, we are seeing our business scale at a fast pace. Travelers continue to seek the safety, ease and flexibility that vacation rentals offer. In Q1 2022 we have further accelerated this growth through a number of significant strategic wins across customer acquisition and retention, partners and supply, as well as technology. Our onsite business has continued to grow exponentially with the onsite booking share increasing to 55% this quarter, having more than doubled year-over-year.”

After an impressive 2021, HomeToGo has posted another set of strong financial results in the first quarter of 2022. IFRS Revenues almost doubled y-o-y to EUR 18.9 million (vs. EUR 9.5 million in Q1’21) on the back of a record EUR 43.4 million (vs. EUR 31.3 million in Q1’21) in Booking Revenues and a growing onsite business of EUR 22.3 million (vs. EUR 7.8 million in Q1’21) contributing to a higher take rate of 9.1% (vs. 7.1% in Q1’21). The onsite business made up 55% of Booking Revenues in Q1’22, thus more than doubling from 26% in Q1’21. Subscriptions & Services also more than doubled from EUR 1.5 million in Q1’21 to EUR 3.2 million in Q1’22 with a strong contribution from AMIVAC[3], acquired in early 2022.

Profitability measured as adjusted EBITDA margin also improved y-o-y through improvements along all major cost lines, in particular in marketing and sales. This resulted in an adjusted EBITDA of EUR (22.3) million in Q1’22, and an adjusted EBITDA margin of (118.3)% (vs. (167.4)% in Q1’21). Profitability in the first half of the year is lower than the second half due to HomeToGo recognizing the majority of marketing expenses in the first half of the year when travelers book their trip, as evidenced by the high Booking Revenues. Corresponding IFRS Revenues are recognized upon check-in, with the majority of customers traveling in the second half of the year.

Amid strong growth and especially with the acquisition of e-domizil (end of March 2022 with first consolidation from 1 April 2022), HomeToGo has updated its 2022 outlook and expects IFRS Revenues to grow by 40 - 50% y-o-y to EUR 133 to 143 million, with an adjusted EBITDA in the EUR (22) to (32) million range.
