OnTheMarket plc

OnTheMarket plc (LON:OTMP), the majority agent-owned company which operates the OnTheMarket.com property portal, has announced an update on trading for the year to 31 January 2022 (FY22).

Strong performance in line with recent update

The Group’s operational performance continued to be strong throughout the second half of FY22 and in its trading update on 21 January 2022, OnTheMarket upgraded its expected adjusted operating profit1 for the year to 31 January 2022 to be not less than £2.5m.

Following the end of FY22, the Group is pleased to be able to confirm that full year results were in line with these increased expectations. Accordingly, subject to audit, the Group expects to report for FY22:

·    Revenues of approximately £30.8m (FY21: £23.0m); and

·    Adjusted operating profit for the year of approximately £2.6m (FY21: £2.4m).

Further operational progress

FY22 saw the successful implementation of a number of commercial partnerships, which provide a greater range of products and services to the Group’s advertiser customers and to OnTheMarket.com users. Recent partnerships include those with Brickflow, Autoenhance.ai and a strengthened partnership with Sprift, through which OnTheMarket can provide an exclusive prospecting product, SmartMail, to its advertiser customers.

In addition, in January 2022, an extended agreement with Insurestreet Limited (trading as Canopy) was concluded, alongside a strategic minority equity investment by the Company into Insurestreet Limited of £350k.

Cash position

OnTheMarket remains well capitalised with net cash at 31 January 2022 of £8.4m and no borrowings.

Outlook

With the new website and brand launch in December 2021, and an increasing range of commercial partnerships successfully established, the transformation of OnTheMarket to create a tech-enabled property business across the broader property ecosystem is accelerating.

The new website, and initiatives such as ‘Only With Us’, continue to attract serious property-seekers and connect them with our advertisers.

The strategic steps the Group has taken, alongside the support of our agent customers and shareholders, provide the Group with the confidence that it has a platform from which to drive long-term profitable growth.

Jason Tebb, OnTheMarket Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“We are delighted to have achieved a year of further financial and operational progress. But there is much more to come. We have received great feedback from our customers regarding our new strategy and enhanced suite of product and service offerings. We look forward to continuing to deliver greater value to both advertisers and consumers during the year ahead.”
