DGAP-News: Delivery Hero SE / Key word(s): Interim Report
Berlin, 2 August 2018 - Delivery Hero Group ("Delivery Hero"), one of the leading global online food ordering and delivery marketplaces, continues its growth path in the first half of 2018 with a 60% increase in revenues. Given the positive business performance and growing food delivery market, Delivery Hero will increase investments to take advantage of opportunities it has across the business.
Niklas Östberg, CEO of Delivery Hero, said:
"We have had an excellent first half with continued high growth across the business. We have seen the food delivery market continue to expand and this is opening up many new opportunities to invest across our countries. As we have said at IPO, our core focus remains on growth and further strengthen our leadership positions to continue creating long-term shareholder value."
Group financial performance H1 2018:
Delivery Hero will opportunistically deploy up to EUR 80 million for additional investments in the second half of 2018 to take advantage of positive business performance and increasing food delivery market. Delivery Hero has identified clear opportunities to invest at attractive returns and to continue to strengthen its leadership positions.
These investments will be allocated across marketing, restaurant coverage, technology and product capabilities and are expected to generate incremental revenues of EUR 9 million in 2018 and EUR 25 million in 2019, with continued future revenues from returning customers.
Delivery Hero expects to continue investing at similar levels during the course of 2019 which will also add to incremental customers and revenues.
Delivery Hero raises its revenue guidance by EUR 35 million, driven by positive business performance and additional investments. After adjustments for planned divestments with expected revenues of EUR 20 million, Delivery Hero expects to achieve full year revenues of between EUR 760 million and EUR 780 million in 2018.
Delivery Hero is on track with its previous full year adjusted EBITDA guidance prior to the additional investments that will reduce adjusted EBITDA by up to EUR 80 million. As a result of the investments, Delivery Hero does not expect to reach breakeven on an adjusted EBITDA basis in December 2018 on a monthly level and for the full year 2019, as previously intended.
