Press Release: Acceleration of Growth in 2023 Revenue: €5.6M (+44%)

Lisbon (Portugal) – January 16, 2024 – 1800 CET: Samba Digital (ISIN PTDGL0AM0003, Mnémonique MLSMB), a global player in the world of sports marketing, announces an acceleration of its growth in 2023

Samba Digital achieved a turnover of €5.57M in 2023, a sharp increase of 44% compared to the same period for the previous year. At constant exchange rates, organic growth stood at 48%.

Strong momentum in all regions:

In 2023, Samba Digital accelerated its development in all regions of the world thanks to a global approach that perfectly meets today’s challenges in digital sports marketing. The distribution by geographical area is approximately the same as in 2022 with a slight increase in French-speaking Europe.

The distribution by geographical area is as follows:

Outlook: Confirmation of the Operational Margin Target for 2023 and a targeted turnover of €10M for 2024

Despite a turnover slightly below its initial forecast linked to a one-off delay in projects for the following financial year, Samba Digital reiterates its confidence in achieving an operating result for 2023 of around €1.4M, an operating margin of 24%.

For 2024, Samba Digital will continue its commercial efforts at a sustained pace with particularly dynamic news in the field of sports (the Olympic and Paralympic Games in France in the summer of 2024, etc.). At the same time, the company will continue its development in new regions, particularly in the Middle East.

Thanks to an economic model favouring recurring subscription-type revenues and a high renewal rate for its customer contracts, Samba Digital is starting the year with a high level of backlog. The company is therefore targeting a 2024 turnover of €10M, showing organic growth of almost 70% for the upcoming financial year.

As previously announced, Samba Digital also confirms its intention to request a transfer to Euronext Growth® Lisbon for the first half of 2024 followed by a dual listing of its shares in Paris.
