CEO, Nicolai Frisch Erichsen comments on the report:
Nicolai Frisch Erichsen continues:
“In April, Freetrailer entered into an agreement with IKEA Denmark to develop a new Freetrailer E-bike produced in-house. The bike is much more robust and easier to ride for our users, and we have high expectations for our new E-bike, which premiered at the opening of IKEA Copenhagen on August 16th. With the development of the Freetrailer E-bike, we, together with our partners, are leading the way in creating a sustainable urban sharing economy.”
Expectations for the financial year 23/24:
“Freetrailer looks forward with great optimism to the continued growth journey of the coming years. A growth journey based on further expansion with our strong partners in existing markets and the establishment of the Freetrailer concept in new international markets,” says Freetrailer Group CEO Nicolai Frisch Erichsen.
With +34% growth in the number of rentals and a corresponding revenue growth for the first two months of the new financial year, Freetrailer has made a solid start to 23/24. A changed product mix with more E-bikes and open trailers increases the rental frequency in the summer period, while a lower rental frequency is expected in the winter period.
For the financial year 23/24, we expect to achieve +1,135,000 rentals, corresponding to a growth of more than 25%. The number of rental products is expected to reach +4,600, corresponding to a growth of 26 %.
Revenue in 23/24 is expected to increase to DKK 90 – 100 million, corresponding to a growth of 20 – 33%.
“The company’s strategy going forward is to continue to finance growth through the company’s operations. Being self-financing remains an important strategic focus at Freetrailer. Investments in the new IT platform, which is expected to be launched in 2024, increased investments in the German market and investment in at least one new European market will increase costs in the financial year 23/24. Against this background, with a clear focus on the coming years’ expansion, we expect to realize an EBITDA of 10-14 million in 23/24,” says Freetrailer Group CEO Nicolai Frisch Erichsen.
