Dusseldorf, 28 April 2022. fashionette AG (ISIN DE000A2QEFA1 / GSIN A2QEFA), a leading European data-driven e-commerce group for premium and luxury fashion accessories, today announced audited financial year results for FY 2021.

Daniel Raab, CEO of fashionette AG: "We are pleased to present the final set of numbers for 2021 and finalize the conversion into IFRS. As we begin 2022, our core segment DACH continues to grow profitably and our newer initiatives - including our new product category beauty and our own brand approach - have a strong foundation from which we expect to generate substantial contributions to our future financial performance.

In 2022, despite the geopolitical challenges and the resulting impact on consumer sentiment, we expect a continuous growth in our key regions. Following a year of high investments for the acquisition of Brandfield and the expansion of inventory as a basis for future growth, we expect 2022 to be less capital intensive and we will focus on improving our Free Cash Flow generation."

By the end of 2021, the group's net cash position was at EUR 7.2 million with additional unused working capital facilities in the amount of EUR 12.9 million out of a total of EUR 13.0 million.

Outlook 2022:

The outlook is based on the assumption of no further portfolio changes. The relevant opportunities and risks that influence the outlook are explained in the opportunities and risks report of the annual report 2021.

The outlook is based on the current assessment of the effects deriving from the geopolitical situation and the global economy and assuming no additional major deterioration. Uncertainties resulting from the evolving nature of the current geopolitical situation could have material impacts on fashionette's future performance. Other factors to consider:
 

  • weakened consumer sentiment and discretionary income arising from macro-economic conditions
  • inflationary environment putting additional strain on consumer's discretionary income
  • increased cost pressure
 

For 2022, the management expects a net revenue growth of +16% to +21% on pro forma basis of EUR 155 million or +34% to +40% on consolidated basis of EUR 134 million. The adjusted EBITDA is expected to reach approximately EUR 5 million to EUR 7.5 million.
