Hong Kong, May 22, 2020 — iClick Interactive Asia Group Limited (“iClick” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: ICLK), an independent online marketing and enterprise data solutions provider in China, today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.
“We are proud of achieving record results in gross billing, revenue, gross profit, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income in this quarter compared to any other first quarters in our company’s history despite facing massive challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Jian “T.J.” Tang, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of iClick. “We reported revenue of US$49.0 million, an increase of 25% year-over-year, while our gross billing grew to US$158.0 million, an increase of approximately 64% from the first quarter of 2019. With the continued improvement in profitability and cost controls, we recorded gross profit of US$13.3 million, adjusted EBITDA of US$2.4 million and adjusted net income of US$0.6 million.”
“We are pleased to report that we continue to successfully ramp up our Enterprise Solutions business. This is the major initiative we expect to strengthen and grow our company for the years to come. In the first quarter revenue for this segment grew to US$4.4 million, an increase of approximately 202% from the same period of last year. This is the first time we are able to report year-over-year comparisons for this business and these results continue to confirm our expectation that this high-margin business will continue to gain strength this year and contribute to our bottom line. Additionally, we reported our second consecutive quarter of adjusted net income due in part to our efforts in building economies of scale and the development of our higher-margin Enterprise Solutions business.”
“We remain cautiously optimistic about the future given our niche position and well diversified client portfolio, and our company will continue to optimize our operations and reduce costs in order to guard against any further negative impact from the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak. Today we reiterate our 2020 full-year revenue guidance range of $240 million to $260 million and we revise our 2020 full-year Adjusted EBITDA guidance to the range of $7 million to $10 million reflecting both the healthy outlook for market demand and our effective cost management efforts.”
