Munich / Berlin, 2 December 2021 – Scout24 SE is pursuing its growth path and announces a positive outlook for 2022 and beyond at its virtual Capital Markets Day. The Management expects Scout24’s profitable growth to continue. Accordingly, Group revenue is expected to increase between 11% and 12% in 2022. At the same time, the Group's ordinary operating EBITDA is expected to grow between 6% and 8%. For 2023 and beyond, Scout24 plans to achieve revenue growth and an increase in ordinary operating EBITDA in the double-digit percentage range. Until 2026, the Management expects average annual revenue growth of around 12%. The outlook takes into account the ongoing digitisation in the German real estate market for both professional and private customers.
"Since the Capital Markets Day 2019, we have made significant progress to build a digital ecosystem for real estate transactions. Today, ImmoScout24 is already much more than a mere classifieds platform. With an accelerated product roll-out, we are helping our customers to execute all transactions around real estate in a more efficient and digital way. This is the focus of our future growth," comments Tobias Hartmann, CEO of Scout24 SE.
"We want to increase our revenue in the double-digit percentage range also beyond 2022. During that timeframe, earnings growth will accelerate again. Our growth formula thus creates added value for our customers and for our shareholders," says Dirk Schmelzer, CFO of Scout24 SE.
