Tableau Anglais

2015 was the year where growth returned, with the business continuing to refocus on large and profitable accounts and align the Group in terms of strategic objectives, financial goals and product offering.

  • New client wins with attractive blue chip, multinational players such as Estee Lauder, Euromaster and Dubai Parks & Resorts, providing a strong platform for future growth. In addition, NetBooster is growing with existing clients such as Deutsche Telekom, by being a full service provider for them.
  • By offering all-performance channels on an international level, NetBooster is the ideal partner to help blue-chip and multinational players roll-out their digital strategy. As a result, NetBooster is challenging the big media agencies in this space, as they are just starting to focus on digital performance.
  • In February 2016, NetBooster announced a new strategic partnership deal with PM Digital of the U.S., thereby forming one of the biggest independent performance agency networks in the world (25+ offices, 800 employees and managing over $500m media spend). This strategic partnership is enabling the two agencies to work alongside one another; leveraging their powerful international footprint, respective product offerings, employees and technology to the benefit of their clients.

NetBooster’s CEO, Tim Ringel, commented: “I am delighted to announce that 2015 was the best ever year in NetBooster’s history both from a business and financial perspective. NetBooster has posted landmark results in 2015 for the second year in a row, a product of the combined efforts of all our committed, creative and hard-working colleagues. The platform we have built over the last three years has now put us in a position to evolve from being a Europe focused international player into a global digital media performance agency. We see that clients come to us because we’re transparent, efficient and client centric and can deliver the service that they want. I’m proud of what has been achieved, but believe our most exciting years lie ahead of us.”

NetBooster refinances convertible bond with no dilution for shareholders and secures growth finance

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing is pleased to announce the closing of a landmark €20.7m financing agreement.

The new senior secured facility consists of a €10.7m tranche that will be used to reimbourse an existing convertible bond that comes due on the 23rd of March and smaller outstanding loans, as well as a €10m tranche that is dedicated to finance our envisaged growth plans. The latter represents a key cornerstone of management’s promise to deliver continued strong growth and global expansion.

The new arrangements offer NetBooster considerable flexibility, with 50% of the transaction coming in the form of a bullet type euro private placement maturing in 2022 and 50% in the form of a traditional amortising loan with a term of 5 years and 9 months. Credit du Nord was appointed Lead Arranger on the transaction and jointly structured it with Tikehau Investment Management’s NOVI I fund. Two other large European banks, BNP Paribas and Société Générale and a global player, HSBC, made up the rest of the pool.

Tim Ringel, CEO of NetBooster S.A. commented: “This financing round represents the culmination of many years of hard work, solidifies NetBooster’s balance sheet with an attractive, long term financing structure, whilst also prefunds our ambitious growth plans to evolve into a global digital media agency. We would particularly like to extend our thanks to our financing partners for their continuing support and confidence in the prospects of the NetBooster group”  

Nathalie Bleunven of Tikehau Investment Management opined: “We are delighted to assist NetBooster in diversifying its financing arrangements and putting in place a long term solution that hits all of its objectives. Tikehau saw a unique investment opportunity in NetBooster, given the company’s strong position in the digital marketing domain, its proven track record in delivering results, its strong management team and its exciting international development plans.”

Alexandre Quevat and Bertrand Descours of Credit du Nord Corporate Finance commented: “Credit du Nord was delighted to be appointed Lead Arranger on this transaction; beating off strong competition from NetBooster’s banking pool. An innovative financing structure won the day, with the proposed solution being oversubscribed and two new banks and a Euro PP house being added to NetBooster’s core banking relationships.”

NetBooster to move to IFRS

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, today announces its move to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

The switch to IFRS will provide investors and other users of financial statements with the ability to compare the financial performance of NetBooster on a like-for-like basis with its international peers and provide more transparency to investors on the Group’s performance. It represents yet another step in making NetBooster’s Investor Relations best in class, providing the investment community with the type of information that can inform their decisions on an investment in the group.

The key impact for the Group from a financial perspective will be in the net income line, with goodwill on historic acquisitions being subject to an annual impairment test, rather than being depreciated annually on a straight-line basis. Net income would thus have been approximatively €4m higher in 2014 under IFRS standards. All other material changes will be disclosed in the Company’s 2015 Annual Report. However, to give investors an orientation, non-audited 2013 and 2014 IFRS Financials are available on the Group’s website.

NetBooster will publish its first IFRS consolidated financial statements as of and for the three years ended December 31, 2015. The annual report 2015 will be published in April 2016.

For the year-ended 2014, NetBooster recorded an EBITDA of €4.5m (compared to €2.7m in 2013) and a Gross Margin of €34.2m (stable compared to 2013, €34.4m) leading to a profitability level of 13.1% (compared to 7.9% for the year-ended 2013). Despite goodwill amortization of €4.0m under French GAAP, the Company is reporting a positive Net income.

In 2014, the Management team restructured the company and refocused efforts from a client, management, product and financial perspective. Principle amongst these included:

  • A decision to exit unprofitable client relationships, thereby accepting a decline in Revenue from €133m to €166m, whilst keeping a stable level of Gross Margin, which is the leading indicator for the operational business performance.
  • Optimising the Group’s cost base; consolidating its business activities in the UK, squeezing out minority shareholders in Guava Holding and thereby reducing the listing and associated costs therewith, combining the Company’s three German units and resizing the French business to actively improve profitability locally.
  • Streamlining our vision, aligning our product offering towards clients’ needs and improving our communication strategy. With a unique product offering, the right size to attract clients and by being a full service digital agency. NetBooster is challenging the big media agencies as they are just starting to turn to digital.
  • New client wins with attractive blue chip, multinational players such as Estée Lauder, PSA, Nestlé, Ringier, AXA Assistance, Standard Chartered, Jennyfer, Speedo and Maplin, providing a strong platform for future growth.
