Paris, April 25, 2024 - Ateme (ISIN: FR0011992700) generated revenues of €17.7 million in the First Quarter of 2024, down 35% on both a reported and like-for-like basis. This reflects an exceptional base effect in the First Quarter of 2023, due to a large one-off project. Excluding this major project, revenue would have been virtually stable.

  • EMEA revenues were up 38% at €8,9m;
  • The USA/Canada region delivered revenues of €5,0m, down by 69%, reflecting the non-recurrence of the abovementioned contract;
  • Latin America revenues were up 34% to €1,9m;
  • Asia Pacific revenues were down 37% to €2,0m.

Monthly Recurring Revenues (MRR[2]) rose from €2,470K in January 2024 to €2,541K in April 2024, up by 71 K€, a performance in line with expectations for a First Quarter of the year.

 

The recent NAB Show confirmed Ateme's growing reputation

The NAB Show in Las Vegas, the largest trade show in the industry, welcomed fewer visitors
(-6%) reflecting the global macro-economic challenges. However, the footfall at Ateme's booth was up 34%, notably driven by strong customer interest in:

  • Ateme's AI optimized OTT delivery, leading to gains in compression efficiency, and end-to-end optimizations. The “Audience-aware streaming” is a perfect example. It uses CDN analytics to control the allocation of encoding resources in real time and reduce the global traffic on the CDN.
  • Growing visibility with the major cloud providers: Ateme received from GCP (Google Cloud Platform) the award of Technology Partner of the Year in media and entertainment at Google Next 2024, Google's major Cloud conference held just before NAB Show. Ateme's technology was demonstrated on the AWS (Amazon Web Services) booth at NAB, and the partnerships with Akamai and Microsoft Azure also bring significant opportunities, reinforcing Ateme's leadership in the cloud migration customer journey.
  • Ateme's MV-HEVC (Multi View HEVC) encoding technology which enables a never-seen-before immersive 3D experience with the Apple Visio Pro. This was presented in a panel by Ateme's CTO Mickael Raulet alongside executives from Apple, Disney, and Dolby.

 

Financial objectives confirmed

Ateme is reinforcing its cooperation with tech giants Akamai, Apple, AWS, Google, and Microsoft. This recognition of Ateme's unique innovation capabilities is boosting our visibility in the industry and with it, commercial opportunities.

We are therefore confident in reiterating our financial objectives for the year as a whole:

  • Revenue Growth;
  • Strict cost control with a stable headcount;
  • EBITDA[3] of €10 million ;
  • Monthly Recurring Revenues of €3 million.

Michel Artières, Chairman and CEO of Ateme, commented: “The year-on-year comparison of the first Quarter is not relevant due to the unusual 2023 annual split of our revenues. 2024 has begun moderately but serious things really start after NAB in our industry. Our growing cooperation with tech giants is making an impact, and we confirm our objectives of growing significantly both our EBITDA and MRR in 2024.”
