CEO Comment

Overall slow down in second quarter

Summarizing the second quarter we experienced a slow down in the market affecting all our brands, except for Newsner which continues to perform solidly and outperformed last year. After a good start to 2022, with stable revenues in both business segments and record performance in Newsner, which gave us an all-time-high in EBIT for the first quarter, we now conclude that the second quarter were weaker in sales and earnings.

Weaker financial performance in the second  quarter

Caybon reports net sales of 226,130 (263,909) TSEK in the second quarter which represents a negative growth of 14.3 % and adjusted EBIT (excluding non recurring items) of  20,158 TSEK which is down 36%, from 31,601 TSEK for the second quarter last year.
The decline in sales and EBIT is mainly related to the Campaign segment and the business areas Mediaplanet and N365.

Campaign segment

In the Campaign segment we see challenging market conditions in general due to the various uncertainties that our clients are facing. This affects the demand for marketing investmens in general and therefore the purchase of products and services offered by us in Caybon and primarily Mediaplanet and N365. Obviously certain industries are more affected than others. Net Sales amounted to 148,877 (180,028) TSEK, representing a decline of 17%. Also EBIT declined to 13,925 (32,669) mainly as a result of the revenue shortfall, in combination with higher costs. We believe that the market outlook has somewhat stabilized and as long as we have attractive products and services we will be competitive.

Network segment

In the network segment Net Sales declined 8 % to 77,253 (83,880) TSEK, whereas EBIT improved to 11,503 (8,350) TSEK. Splay One had lower revenues and a flat EBIT on the back of continued re-structuring and organisational changes. The new management and team have made a great effort and I believe Splay will soon be well equipped for the future and improving performance. The business area Newsner, which works with programmatic ad sales, continues its very strong performance and beats previous year in terms of both net sales and EBIT in the quarter.

Acquisition of Future Media Group

In line with Caybon's strategy to increase its offering to its clients, especially in the digital marketing space - I'm extremely proud to announce our latest addition to Caybon with Future Media Group ("FMG") which will be part of the Caybon family as of July 1st. Future Media Group consists of five business areas in the digital marketing space and is based in Sweden and Norway. With their in-house capabilities FMG develops, designs and executes marketing concepts for publishers and media channels, in order to create attractive value propositions towards advertisers. Through competitive intelligence, trend analysis and co-creation with partners FMG seeks to innovate digital marketing to help clients develop new revenue streams. FMG had net sales of around 165 MSEK and EBIT of approximately 28 MSEK in 2021. I have followed FMG since it was founded and I am thrilled that CEO Linus Wennerström will continue to lead FMG as a separate business area in the Caybon Group. I am confident that FMGs offering will be a good addition to the Group and also well received in the other geographical markets where Caybon operates. FMG will be consolidated in the Campaign segment as of July and I foresee many possibilities of collaboration with Mediaplanet as well as N365.

Outlook

Despite a slower second quarter, I believe that Caybon is well equipped to address varying client needs and we can profit from our capabilities in digital content. Also with FMG our already diversified asset portfolio is even broader.
