Delticom publishes Annual Report 2023: Consolidated net income increased to € 8 million, basis for possible dividend payment in 2025 formed 

Hanover, April 19, 2024 – Delticom AG (German Securities Code (WKN) 514680, ISIN DE 0005146807, stock market symbol DEX), Europe’s leading online retailer for tyres and complete wheels, today published its Annual Report 2023. 

  • Gross merchandise volume (GMV) totalled € 586 million (2022: € 582 million)
  • Revenues of € 476 million (forecast for 2024: € 450-470 million)
  • Increase in operating EBITDA to € 22 million (forecast for 2024: € 19-21 million)
  • Net income amounted to € 8 million (2022: € 3 million)
  • Further reduction in financial debt against the backdrop of the company's positive development and stringent working capital management
  • Increase in equity to € 48 million (2022: € 40 million)
  • Equalisation of loss carryforwards from previous years at Delticom AG creates basis for possible dividend payment in 2025

Fiscal year 2023

In the past fiscal year, Delticom AG focussed on further improving the profitability in its operating business and was able to increase its operating EBITDA from € 15.0 million to € 21.8 million. As a result, operating EBITDA exceeded the upper range of the forecast corridor (forecasted range: € 14-18.9 million).

In the past fiscal year, the Delticom Group generated revenues of € 476 million (2022: € 509 million). In the 2023 financial year, the previous shop business was supplemented by platform business. The company provides the technical infrastructure and its sales and process expertise to enable external third parties to sell goods online to Delticom's private and commercial end customers. This results in a partial shift of the shop business to platform business. Accordingly, commission income is realised for the shifted share of revenues. The year-on-year decrease in revenues is primarily due to this shift. The gross merchandise volume for the year as a whole totalled € 586 million (2022: € 582 million).

The gross margin (trade margin excluding other operating income) totalled 24.4 % for the past financial year, compared to 21.6 % in the same period of the previous year. This improvement is primarily due to the change in the sales mix. In the past financial year, demand for quality tyres from Asian manufacturers increased.

At € 5.6 million, the investments made in 2023 are higher than the previous year's figure of € 2.6 million. In the past fiscal year, Delticom AG invested in AI-supported software and in technical warehouse equipment, especially in the warehouse in Ensisheim.

At € 8.0 million or € 0.54 per share, consolidated net income is higher than in the previous year (2022: € 2.8 million or € 0.19 per share). Delticom AG's earnings relevant for distribution amount to € 8.0 million or € 0.54 per share. In 2022, Delticom AG's earnings amounted to € -9.4 million or € -0.63 per share due to unscheduled write-downs on the carrying amounts of selected subsidiaries.

The release of both the legal reserve and part of the capital reserve as part of the preparation of the annual financial statements of the individual company Delticom AG as of December 31, 2023 to offset the loss carryforwards from previous years still existing after offsetting against the net income for the 2023 financial year created the basis for future dividend distributions. The reversal of reserves presented in the 2023 annual financial statements may only be carried out for the purpose of offsetting losses. Accordingly, no dividend payment can be proposed by the Management Board for the 2023 financial year.

Outlook 2024

Although Inflation has weakened in recent months and experts expect real wages in Europe to rise and private consumption to pick up over the course of this year, there are economic and geopolitical risks that cannot be assessed in terms of their potential impact on companies, consumers and supply chains. Delticom AG is currently unable to estimate the extent to which European demand for replacement tyres will pick up this year in a market environment characterised by uncertainties, due to the wide range of possible influences. In its planning for the current financial year, the company has therefore not recognised opportunities for a market recovery. The same applies to positive weather effects. In particular, Delticom AG does not expect the strong winter tyre business of 2023 to be repeated in 2024. There is also the possibility that more revenues will be shifted to the platform business in the current year than in the previous year. Accordingly, the management is planning revenues in the range of € 450-470 million in the current financial year.

The company also expects to further reduce costs in the current year. For operating EBITDA for the year as a whole, the Management Board is planning a range of € 19-21 million, depending on revenues. Accordingly, we expect to stabilise the operating result achieved in 2023 in the current year.
