Freetrailer downgrades expectations
In light of the weak start to the year in terms of the roll-out of new rental products and a decline in the frequency of rentals in the first half of 22/23, Freetrailer is lowering its expectations for revenue and EBITDA. Freetrailer now expects revenue of between DKK 76 and 80 million, equivalent to growth of more than 21% compared to 21/22 (previously DKK 83 – 85 million).
EBITDA has been adjusted to DKK 10 – 13 million (previously DKK 16 – 17 million) as a result of extraordinary severance costs for the executive board, costs for new marketing initiatives, currency fluctuations in Norwegian and Swedish kroner, increased costs for strengthening the organization, and extra investments in the development of Freetrailers’ tech platform.
Interim CEO, Nicolai Frisch Erichsen comments on the quarterly report:
”Freetrailer has a clear growth strategy and now finds itself in a situation where business and financial results offer a good starting point for increasing investments in expansion. Freetrailer has a high level of liquidity with a cash balance of just over DKK 19 million which will now be invested in future growth in order to create long-term value for investors.”
