Delivery Hero SE
/ Key word(s): Quarterly / Interim Statement
Berlin, 9 August 2023 – Delivery Hero SE (“Delivery Hero”, “the Company” or “the Group”), the world’s leading local delivery platform, can today confirm that it has reached several major milestones on its path to profitability as it releases its Q2 2023 Trading Update. Most significantly, the Group achieved positive adj. EBITDA in H1 2023, with a positive EBITDA/GMV margin of 0.2% in Q2 2023 after group cost allocation. Overall GMV growth accelerated to 8% YoY1, exceeding original expectations of 4% YoY1, and the Group GMV outside of Asia recorded double-digit growth of 18% YoY1. The Asia segment also returned to positive GMV growth at 2% YoY1, despite tough comparable numbers. Total Segment Revenue growth hit 16% YoY1. Accordingly, the company has updated its Total Segment Revenue outlook for FY 2023, expecting an increase of around 15% YoY1 (up from around 10% YoY1 in its previous guidance).
Niklas Östberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Delivery Hero, said: “Our team has executed another fantastic quarter, with significant improvements in both consumer and rider products. As a result, we’ve seen an acceleration in YoY growth in Q2, as well as an improvement in category leadership. We achieved this while still hitting the milestone of a positive adj. EBITDA on Group level.”
The Integrated Verticals segment  recorded a strong GMV growth of 26% YoY1 this quarter, and the Dmart business achieved positive Gross Profit  in June, ahead of guidance. This was due to healthy volume growth, larger shopping baskets and improved cost efficiency, demonstrating strong potential for the model.
Emmanuel Thomassin, CFO of Delivery Hero, said: “I’m very pleased that the progression made towards our profitability goals at the start of the year has materialized in Q2. A particularly significant result was that our Dmarts achieved positive Gross Profit for the first time, ahead of previous guidance. As we continue optimizing our operations and sharing key learnings on a global scale, we are unlocking the valuable potential they can have across the business going forward.”
Uplifting the ecosystem
Throughout its path to profitability, Delivery Hero has maintained its commitment to environmental and social programs that benefit its entire ecosystem. The Company aims to play a key role in the long-term success of the broader delivery industry, reinforcing its resilience to future challenges.
This quarter, foodpanda released its 2022 data for pandapurpose . Key results included piloting electric vehicles in seven markets, with 1 in 5 riders now using low-to-no emission modes of delivery, and upskilling more than 56,000 merchants with workshops. Glovo also continued the roll out of its Impact Fund, which commits a small amount from every order to initiatives that include upskilling riders, expanding its sustainable packaging program, and financing boot camps to enable women to start a career in tech. In Korea, Woowa hit the milestone of 200,000 trainees for its restaurant owner education programmes, as well as recruiting its second round of applicants for the “My First Store Loan”. The latter is a financial support program that supports self-employed restaurateurs in purchasing their first business property.
