Bike24 Holding AG: Downward adjustment of guidance for fiscal year 2023

Stock exchange code: BIKE
Listed: Regulated Market in Frankfurt am Main (Prime Standard)

Dresden, July 18, 2023 // Bike24 Holding AG (the "Company") adjusts its guidance for the fiscal year 2023. In the second quarter of 2023, consumer sentiment did not distinctly improve and there is still overstock in the market, negatively impacting revenue and margin. This trend continued at the beginning of the third quarter. Contrary to previous expectations, the Company does not expect a significant improvement of consumer sentiment in the second half of this fiscal year due to continued adverse macroeconomic conditions, in particular persistently high inflation rates weakening the purchasing power of consumers.

The Company's previous guidance as of March 30, 2023 assumed revenue growth of 0% to +10% and an adjusted EBITDA margin between 0% and +3.5% for the current fiscal year.

With regard to the business performance, the Company now expects revenue development of -10% to -5% and an adjusted EBITDA margin between -1% and +1% for the fiscal year 2023.

Furthermore, the Company assumes for the second quarter based on preliminary calculations a decrease in revenue by approx. -6,1% compared with the second quarter of the previous fiscal year and an adjusted EBITDA margin of approx. +0.9%. The Company will publish the results of the second quarter with the half-year financial report on August 10, 2023. The final numbers for the second quarter of 2023 may deviate from the indications presented in this release.

For the definition of the alternative performance measure "adjusted EBITDA margin", the Company refers to the related definition in its annual report 2022, which has been published on the Company's website.
