Forecast for 2022 and revised financial targets with increased focus on organic EBITDA growth

The Board of Acroud AB (publ) has decided to provide the market with its forecast for FY2022, and update the Company's financial objectives to reflect the new leaner business and align with Acroud's reshaped structure. Through various strategic acquisitions and decisions executed during 2021, Acroud has been transformed from a conventional player with comparison sites into a powerful ecosystem offering not only iGaming affiliation services but also B2B SaaS solutions. Acroud now has a new solid foundation to rewrite its story.

Forecast for FY2022

Following the strong start to 2022, Acroud is expected to reach between EUR 8 million and EUR 10 million in EBITDA during the year. EBITDA during 2021 amounted to EUR 4.7 million.

New Financial Targets

With the new foundation in place, Acroud’s board of directors has set new financial targets:

  • To grow EBITDA organically by 20%, on average, annually during the financial years 2023 - 2025, and
  • Decrease the net interest-bearing debt/adjusted EBITDA to a maximum of 2.5x by December 2025.

Acroud aims to grow its revenue organically at an efficient cost base to ensure consistent and sustainable EBITDA growth. Additionally, operations will be conducted at low financial risk by decreasing net debt to 2.5x by the end of FY2025.

Acroud’s new financial objectives should not be considered as a forecast, but rather as the ambition that the board of directors and management believe to be reasonable long-term expectations for Acroud.

Dividend policy

The dividend policy remains unchanged. Over the next few years, Acroud will continue to prioritise lower net debt, good liquidity and internal growth investments above dividends.
