Paris, July 12, 2022 - Ateme (ISIN: FR0011992700) generated revenues of €23.0 million in the Second Quarter of 2022, up 42% year-on-year and by 30% on a like-for-like basis.
For the First Half, revenues were up 38% year-on-year and by 29% on a like-for-like basis:
- EMEA revenues were virtually stable, down 1% year on year and 2% like-for-like at €11,769K. However, the region was the largest contributor to MRR growth.
- The USA/Canada region generated revenues of €18,227K, up 74%, and by 58% like-for-like, confirming as the Group's largest market, at almost 43% of revenues.
- Latin America revenues were up 14% to €4,861K, and by 4% on a like-for like basis.
- Asia Pacific remained the fastest growing region, with revenues up 84% to €7,996K, and by 68% on a like-for like basis.
Monthly Recurring Revenues (MRR) rose from €1,960K in January 2022 to €2,115K in July 2022. Considering the Second Half of the year is always significantly more dynamic than the first one in terms of bookings, the level reached at the end of this semester puts Ateme well on track to achieve its longer term objectives of €3M by 2024 and €4M by 2026.
Impacts of the pandemic, global semiconductor shortage, and Ukraine war
With international travel restrictions now mostly relaxed, trade shows and customer meetings are progressively normalizing. NAB took place in April in Las Vegas, with attendance slightly below 2019, and the IBC in Amsterdam in September should return to normal.
Semiconductor companies are still facing production challenges which are affecting all major server manufacturers, partners as Dell and HPe and the production of Ateme's Kyrion product line. Although the efforts to build-up an inventory have mitigated the impact, the situation resulted in H1 in some €500K of business lost or postponed.
Elsewhere, Ateme has interrupted shipments to Russia and Belarus. The impact on H1 revenue is of a similar magnitude.
New technological developments
During the last quarter, Ateme continued to demonstrate its technological leadership and its role as a catalyst for transformation in the Media, TV & streaming industry.
Ateme's solutions have enabled the highest quality of streaming experience for premium events such as the UEFA Champions League final, the Roland Garros tennis tournament and the Eurovision Song Contest.
Ateme has gone further, with 5G or massive deployment on the AWS cloud for Comcast Technology Solution.

Outlook for Full Year 2022
The Second Half is expected to deliver a strong performance thanks to:
- A high backlog, cumulating the effect of growing MRR and orders received at the very end of Q2 that will be delivered in Q3,
- An increasingly robust pipeline, strengthened by the gradual take-up of NEA software by Ateme's historical installed base.
Therefore, Ateme is confident in achieving the upwardly revised topline growth target of 15-20% on a like-for-like basis.
Ateme has continued to invest in R&D to support ongoing development, with the global headcount now standing at 520 FTE. Nevertheless, the profitability level of the First Half of 2022 should be improved compared to the same period in 2021, and Ateme also confirms its Full Year EBITDA target of €10m.
Michel Artières, Chairman and CEO of Ateme, commented: “The First Half of 2022 has showcased both the synergies of our 2020 acquisition and the benefits of our strategy of building MRR, which is clearly feeding through to more predictable growth quarter after quarter. We are continuously improving our model of MRR creation and renewal, and the success of this model enhances our confidence in our future profitability objectives.”
