Rentabiliweb: Q3 2012 Consolidated Revenue

BRUSSELS, November 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


More Significant Progress for the Be2Bill Payment Solution:

  • Sustained commercial momentum during Q3
  • Multi-currency payment processing now offered with Payvision

The Rentabiliweb Group (ISIN BE0946620946 -- Mnemo BIL) generated revenue of €52.5m over the first nine months of the year. The Q3 revenue of €16.2m, following on from the previous two quarters, was driven by the rollout of the Be2Bill bank card payment solution for e-retailers (the Group's strategic priority) and by Rentabiliweb's gradual shift in focus to segments that offer the greatest potential in terms of growth and profitability.

B to B: commercial deployment of the payment solution in line with Group ambitions

The Q3 results confirm the sustained commercial momentum of the Group's payment solution, which was launched in April. To date, Be2Bill has signed contracts with over 100 e-retailers, ranging from major groups to start-ups, and covers an extensive spectrum of industries (from digital to retail). The volume of transactions processed for our active e-retailers increases regularly each month, with clear client satisfaction and a maximum loyalty rate of 100%.

In accordance with the market plan announced in H1, the recent partnership signed with Payvision has made it possible to deploy the solution on French-speaking and European markets. This international offering is now part of Be2Bill's range of services.

Overall, the Group has seen Be2Bill's business volume of new accounts ramp up progressively. At the same time, as stated previously, the Group is still experiencing inevitable transition time regarding uptake and traffic density.

As expected, the quarter saw a continued shift in the choice of payment systems towards bank cards. The downturn in the Micropayment segment, which was still tangible in this quarter, should, however, be offset in FY2013 by the Monetization segment.

The Direct Marketing segment continued its reorganisation with the aim of focusing on its longstanding cash-back and high value-added retargeting service lines. In parallel, the segment continues its strategy to optimise synergies between loyalty and retargeting tools with payment solutions. Accordingly, the recent Eperflex email retargeting solution again enjoyed strong growth in Q3 2012 and won new contracts with Lastminute, Spartoo and The Body Shop, among others. These major deals for the Eperflex solution should positively impact the turnover for the Direct Marketing segment as from Q1 2013.

B to C: confirmation of the growth of the Astrology segment, which generates major cash flow

Own audience monetization (B to C) declined slightly in Q3 (down 5% year over year), in an environment that became even more competitive in the dating services sector. For all that, the downturn was less pronounced then in Q2 2012 due to some products being refreshed.  

The Astrology segment once again made significant progress and posted appreciable gains in market shares. This continued growth of the Astrology segment should shortly make it possible to offset the downturn in the Dating Services segment, where margins are lower. The implementation of the strategy to refresh longstanding products and secure margins will thus be successfully completed.

Prospects

In an economic context that is still difficult, the Group's results for the year should be in line with the trends seen in the first 9 months.

In the monetization segment, the Group is continuing its aggressive strategy to win market shares, using its unique strengths, boosted by the signature of the partnership with Payvision, a provider of international payment solutions, and through recent agreements with the main Content Management Systems (such as Prestashop and Magento).

Since Q2 2011, the Group has actively pursued the implementation of its strategy, by resizing certain segments in order to focus on those with higher potential. The Group will be in a position to derive full benefit from this as early as 2013.
