Paris, November 9, 2022 - Ateme (ISIN: FR0011992700), the global specialist in video delivery, generated revenue of €21.3 million for the Third Quarter of 2022, down 6% on a reported basis and 14% like for like. This reflects an unusually high base effect in Q3 2021 which was up by 27% like-for-like driven by a phasing effect with revenues carried forward from Q2.
At the Nine Month stage, revenues stood at €64.2 million, up 20% on a reported basis and by 11% like-for-like.
- The USA/Canada confirmed its position as the largest contributor to revenues, at 42% of group total, up 46% reported and 30% like-for-like
- EMEA revenue declined by 10%, and by 11% like-for-like, mainly reflecting the absence of revenues from Russia.
- The Asia Pacific region generated a robust performance with revenue up 35% reported and 23% like for like, to reach 18% of group total revenues.
- Revenue in Latin America grew 17%, and 7% like-for-like.
MRR (Monthly Recurring Revenue)
The objective announced on January 2021 to grow MRR from €1.5 million to €3 million in 2024, translates into an incremental €100k per quarter. In October 2022, Monthly Recurring Revenues stood at €2.2 million, on track to reach the 2024 target.
At the IBC trade show in Amsterdam in September, Ateme launched its new Ateme+ SaaS offer, which is expected to further contribute to developing recurring revenues.
Strong commercial momentum
The joint sales of TITAN encoding solutions and NEA video delivery solutions are becoming mainstream, and the adoption of NEA technology by legacy Ateme customers is supporting growth this year and feeding the sales pipeline with more substantial opportunities for Q4 and beyond.
The sales pipeline is still growing as is the size of individual contracts, both one-shot (perpetual licenses) and MRR generating deals.
Full Year objectives confirmed
Based on our strong year-to-date performance, including the strong build-up of Monthly Recurring Revenues, we reiterate our Full Year objectives of 15-20% like-for-like top-line growth and EBITDA close to €10 million. Nevertheless, these are now more challenging in view of global supply chain issues of semiconductors and servers, with potentially an attendant impact on our financial performance.
ATEME Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Michel Artières, said: "Our year-to-date performance is on track regarding the build of Monthly Recurring Revenues. Although we are slightly behind expectations in terms of Q3 revenues, the sales pipeline is sufficiently robust and visible to support an acceleration in Q4 enabling us to reach our topline and profitability targets for the Full Year. Market conditions, notably the Ukraine situation's international impact, global supply chain issues and Covid measures in China continue to hamper our performance, but we continue to win market share faster than any direct competitor, and we reiterate our confidence going into the end of the year and 2023.”
