DGAP-News: Hypoport SE
/ Key word(s): Half Year Results
Results for H1 2021
– Hypoport continues to grow steadily despite minor adverse effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic (‘third wave’)
– Consolidated revenue rises by 12 per cent to €213 million in H1 2021; growth accelerates to 18 per cent in Q2
– EBITDA increases at a faster rate of 21 per cent to €36 million in H1; rate of growth in Q2 as high as 28 per cent
– EBIT up by 28 per cent to €22 million in H1; 49 per cent growth in Q2
In the Private Clients segment, revenue increased by 10 per cent to €69 million in the first half of 2021. This was attributable to gains in market share by consumer brand Dr. Klein, which were achieved through the effective use of the Europace marketplace and video-assisted advice. The segment’s EBIT increased at a much stronger rate, climbing by 30 per cent to €12 million owing to an improved product mix and a pandemic-related reduction in operating costs.
In the Real Estate Platform segment, revenue went up slightly, by 7 per cent, to €29 million. The property sales, property management and property valuation platforms that form part of this segment all delivered a sound operating performance. The property valuation platform, which is closely integrated with Europace, saw particularly strong revenue growth. The weakest link was the property financing platform for the housing industry, which generated revenue on a par with the prior-year period. Revenue growth in the segment as a whole should also be viewed in the context of the strategic reduction of project business. Excluding the project business, revenue increased by more than 10 per cent. The Real Estate Platform segment is the main focal point of the Hypoport Group’s investment in 2021, which meant that the segment’s EBIT fell to a loss of €1.4 million.
In the Insurance Platform segment, revenue grew by 12 per cent to €24 million despite the reduction in project business and the focus on recurring revenue streams from the platform business. The increase was partly attributable to the acquisition of a majority stake in ePension. The migration of insurance portfolios from the legacy systems of the acquired software solutions to the fully integrated SMART INSUR platform is progressing well. A volume of €3 billion in annual net premiums had already been migrated as at the end of the second quarter, equating to a migration rate of over 30 per cent. EBIT weakened slightly to a loss of €1.0 million.
Gross profit for the Hypoport Group as a whole rose by 13 per cent to €112 million in the first half of 2021. EBITDA and EBIT increased more sharply, by 21 per cent and 28 per cent, to €36 million and €22 million respectively, despite high levels of investment in the operating business models of Hypoport’s individual segments, further investment at the level of the holding company and the scaling back of traditional project business.
Ronald Slabke, Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport SE, is very pleased with the Hypoport Group’s growth: “We made a very satisfactory start to the year, followed by solid growth and an excellent performance in the second quarter. Consequently, we can now take on the second half of 2021 with strong momentum behind us. The digitalisation of the credit, insurance and housing sectors will remain an unstoppable trend over the long term. This will enable us to continue to generate double-digit percentage growth in revenue and earnings beyond 2021.”
