NetBooster publishes its Q2 / 2015 Results

 

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, today announces its results for the second quarter of 2015, with an EBITDA increase of 20%.

In the second quarter of 2015, NetBooster recorded an increase in EBITDA to €1.2m, up from €1m in the same period in 2014, with profitability level of 13.8% (11.6% in the prior year).

 

Q2OK

 

Gross Margin increased to €8.7m (+1.2%).

Growing budgets from existing satisfied clients such as Deutsche Telekom and the start of new projects will add momentum for the second half of the year as well.

OUTLOOK 2015
The management anticipates reaching a target EBITDA range between €5.5m and €6.0m for the year-end 2015 and NetBooster is well positioned to further establish itself as a full service world-wide digital agency for large companies.

Tim Ringel, CEO of NetBooster, commented: “NetBooster is in good shape and has sufficient strength and depth to move to the next level. The management is working on further strategic steps and aim to publish an announcement over the next six months.”

Hello bank! von BNP Paribas kooperiert mit Geschäftsbereich Data & Analytics von NetBooster

metapeople’s Parent company, NetBooster (FR0000079683 – eligible ALNBT – PEA-SME), eine führende unabhängige europäische Agentur für digitales Performance-Marketing, meldet heute eine neue Partnerschaft und den Vertragsabschluss mit Hello bank!, der Online-Tochterbank von BNP Paribas.

Nach substanziellen Gewinnen und dem uns entgegengebrachten Vertrauen von erstklassigen Marken wie PSA, Adidas, Accor und Pierre & Vacances hat sich Hello bank! nun für den Data & Analytics Geschäftsbereich von NetBooster zur Unterstützung ihrer Beratungstätigkeit ausgesprochen.

NetBooster wird die Bank anleiten und unterstützen, indem das Unternehmen ihr Anforderungsprofil in Zusammenhang mit der Erfassung und Verwendung von Daten erstellt, um neue Kunden gewinnen zu können. NetBooster wird Hello bank! zudem bei der Auswahl von Daten-Tools und Plattformen unterstützen. Der Aufgabenplan betrifft den französischen, belgischen und italienischen Markt für Vertretungen von Hello bank! und BNP Paribas und auch den deutschen Markt für Hello bank!.

Hello bank!, die Online-Banking-Tochtergesellschaft von BNP Paribas, ist die erste 100%ige digitale Mobilbank in Europa. Im Jahr 2013 gegründet, unterstützt sie heute mehr als 800.000 Kunden.

Thomas Hubert, Head of Data erklärte: „Als Daten-Team in einer Agentur für digitales Performance-Marketing haben wir uns das Ziel gesetzt, die nächste Stufe zu erreichen, indem wir die Herausforderungen der Daten-Wertschöpfungskette annehmen und die Marketing-Lösungen optimieren. Daher hat NetBooster ein Team von Experten gebildet, um unsere Kunden bei der Wahl der besten Datenlösung noch vor der traditionellen Definition von KPIs und der Bereitstellung der Tagging-Pläne oder der Analyse-Tool-Set-ups zu unterstützen. Das internationale NetBooster DnA Team von 35 engagierten Experten hält die besten Antworten für unsere Kunden bereit, von DMP (Data Management Platform) über maschinelles Lernen bis hin zu anzeigen-zentriertem Kundenbeziehungsmanagement oder Datennetz-Analysen.”
