2023 results underscore highly successful and sustainable growth strategy
Based on the most comprehensive product and tech portfolio centered around its three customer groups – agents, homeowners, seekers – Scout24 is successfully executing on its strategy of evolving beyond a traditional marketplace. 2023 highlights another year of strong results with continued revenue growth, mainly driven by the high demand for ImmoScout24’s core products, and an increased operating leverage. This reflects the high relevance of the ImmoScout24 platform and Scout24’s robust business model with a diversified product portfolio, that enables the company to grow in all market environments.

Scout24’s interconnectivity strategy will drive future growth
The claim of the annual report, “Growing with impact”, highlights the close link between Scout24’s growth ambitions and the updated company strategy around interconnectivity, as well as its commitment to a consistent environmental, social and governance (ESG) approach.

Following the claim, Scout24 now initiates the next phase of its strategy: Scout24 will deliver growth by merging relevant object data with classifieds to facilitate more efficient matchmaking between all stakeholders. AI (Artificial Intelligence) plays a key role in building interconnected products for customers and consumers with a more personalized user experience. In the future, Scout24 will provide more market transparency along the real estate transaction. Scout24 outlined its updated strategy at the Capital Markets Day on 28 February 2024. The presentation and a recording of the day can be found at

Non-financial statement highlights Scout24’s ambitious ESG strategy
This year, for the first time, the non-financial statement has been combined with the annual report. In line with the "Growing with impact” claim, Scout24’s goal is to make business activities sustainable. It is important to Scout24 to be aware of the company’s impact on the environment and society and take responsibility. The non-financial statement has been developed in reference to the new European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). One highlight listed in the report is the reduction of CO2e emissions by around 76%, compared to the 2018 baseline. Other milestones are the improvement of the hiring rate of women or non-binary people to 50.5% and a 84% reduction of platform-hidden fraud compared to the same period last year. Moreover, Scout24 continued its social commitment by donating one euro for every new Plus membership subscription between September and December 2023 to a housing first project from HOME STREET HOME, which was founded by ImmoScout24 and One Warm Winter to support homeless people. At the end of the year, Scout24 rounded up the donation amount to EUR 200,000.

In addition to the combined annual report and non-financial statement 2023, Scout24 SE also published its compensation report for the 2023 financial year at

Further share buy-back programme with a volume of up to EUR 50 million started in January 2024
In order to continue to execute the share buy-back programme resolved in March 2023, Scout24 SE announced on 26 January 2024 to execute a further share buy-back transaction in a second tranche with a volume of up to EUR 50 million. This tranche started on 29 January 2024 and will run until 4 October 2024 at the latest. For details of this share buy-back programme, see ‌‌

Dividend proposal of EUR 1.20 per share leads to increase of 20% compared to previous year
Based on the successful financial year 2023 and the expectation of continued profitable growth, the Management Board and Supervisory Board will propose to the Annual General Meeting a dividend of EUR 1.20 per share entitled to dividend, translating to 20% growth compared to last dividend paid. This corresponds to approximately 47% of adjusted net profit and remains at the upper end of Scout24’s defined dividend policy. A total distribution of EUR 88.1 million is expected. The dividend will be paid out after this year’s Annual General Meeting. If the number of dividend-entitled shares for the past financial year 2023 changes as a result of the ongoing share buy-back programme until the Annual General Meeting, a correspondingly adjusted resolution proposal will be submitted to the Annual General Meeting. This will provide for an unchanged dividend of EUR 1.20 per dividend-entitled share.

Management confirms growth guidance for 2024 and financial framework for 2024 – 2026
Based on the Group’s diversified product portfolio, its added value offering in various market situations, as well as an improved operating model, the Management Board expects the Group’s growth momentum and operating leverage to continue in 2024. Therefore, the Management Board confirms its expectations for revenues to grow 9-11% and the ordinary operating EBITDA margin to expand to about 61% in the financial year 2024. Overall, the Management Board will maintain its focus on increasing the Group's ordinary operating EBITDA and the corresponding margin.

For the three-year period from 2024 to 2026, the Management Board expects Group revenues to grow annually at a rate of high single-digit to low double-digits and ordinary operating EBITDA margin to reach 63% by 2026.
