Thursday, November 3, 2022

Paris, November 3rd, 2022 – JCDecaux SE (Euronext Paris: DEC), the outdoor advertising company worldwide, reported its revenue for the nine months ended September 30th, 2022.

  • Third quarter 2022 adjusted revenue up +14.4% to 808.4 million
  • Third quarter 2022 adjusted organic revenue up +9.0%
  • Fourth quarter 2022 adjusted organic revenue growth expected to be around +3.0%

Commenting on the 2022 third quarter revenue, Jean-Charles Decaux, Chairman of the Executive Board and Co-CEO of JCDecaux, said:

Our Q3 2022 group revenue grew by +14.4% with +9.0% on an organic basis to reach 808.4 million, above our expectations, due to a strong trading momentum throughout the quarter. Our organic revenue growth outside China for Q3 2022 was +15.5%.

Digital Out Of Home (DOOH) grew significantly at +25.5% in Q3 2022, +18.5% on an organic basis, to reach 241.9 million, i.e. 29.9% of Group revenue vs 27.3% in Q3 2021. The DOOH programmatic ecosystem continued to gain traction as our programmatic advertising revenue through the VIOOH SSP (supply-side platform) more than doubled vs the same period last year, with the dynamism of the 37 DSPs (demand-side platforms) connected to VIOOH (the most connected SSP of the OOH media industry), including Displayce following our strategic alliance announced in July.

By activity, Street Furniture grew by +8.3% organically in Q3 2022 and was above Q3 2019 levels globally,driven by Europe (including France and United Kingdom) and by a strong rebound in Asia-Pacific; Billboard revenue increased significantly as well at +9.0% organically in Q3 2022 driven by Asia-Pacific and especially Australia which was already above 2019 like North America; Transport grew strongly at +10.2% reflecting the continued recovery of air travel in most regions of the world, including Rest of the World which was already above 2019 revenue levels, but remained meaningfully impacted by ongoing mobility restrictions in China.

All geographies grew positively organically in Q3 2022 except Asia-Pacific which was flat compared to Q3 2021. Asia-Pacific excluding China grew strongly by +52.3%. The rebound was especially strong in North America and in Rest of the World in line with the strong recovery of air traffic in these geographies.

As far as Q4 is concerned, we continue to have a solid trading momentum and despite ongoing mobility restrictions in China, we expect an organic revenue growth at around +3.0% vs Q4 2021.

As the most digitised global OOH media company, with our new data-led audience targeting and programmatic solutions, our well diversified portfolio, our ability to win new contracts, the strength of our balance sheet, the high quality of our teams across the world and our recognized ESG excellence, we believe we are well positioned to benefit from the rebound. We are more than ever confident in the power of our media in an advertising landscape increasingly fragmented and more and more digital and in the role it will play to drive economic growth as well as positive changes.

ADJUSTED DATA

Under IFRS 11, applicable from January 1st, 2014, companies under joint control are accounted for using the equity method. However, in order to reflect the business reality of the Group, operating data of the companies under joint control will continue to be proportionately integrated in the operating management reports used by directors to monitor the activity, allocate resources and measure performance.
Consequently, pursuant to IFRS 8, Segment Reporting presented in the financial statements complies with the Group’s internal information, and the Group’s external financial communication therefore relies on this operating financial information. Financial information and comments are therefore based on “adjusted” data, consistent with historical data, which is reconciled with IFRS financial statements.
In Q3 2022, the impact of IFRS 11 on adjusted revenue was -€60.9 million (-€59.4 million in Q3 2021), leaving IFRS revenue at €747.5 million (€647.1 million in Q3 2021).
For the first nine months of 2022, the impact of IFRS 11 on adjusted revenue was -€167.8 million (-€147.4 million for the first nine months of 2021), leaving IFRS revenue at €2,115.4 million (€1,641.5 million for the first nine months of 2021).

ORGANIC GROWTH DEFINITION

The Group’s organic growth corresponds to the adjusted revenue growth excluding foreign exchange impact and perimeter effect. The reference fiscal year remains unchanged regarding the reported figures, and the organic growth is calculated by converting the revenue of the current fiscal year at the average exchange rates of the previous year and taking into account the perimeter variations prorata temporis, but including revenue variations from the gains of new contracts and the losses of contracts previously held in our portfolio.
