Digitalbox PLC (DBOX.L) Trading Update

Digitalbox plc (AIM: DBOX), the mobile-first digital media business, which owns Entertainment Daily, The Daily Mash and The Tab, is pleased to provide the following trading update.

The Company can confirm that it expects revenue and EBITDA for the year ended 31 December 2021 (“FY2021”) to be significantly ahead of the most recently upgraded market consensus of £700k EBITDA, with expected revenue of not less than £3.3m.

Trading across the Digitalbox’s three brands has been stronger than anticipated in the second half of the year, which represents the Company’s biggest trading period. The positive trend in the UK mobile advertising market has continued, contributing to the revenue overperformance, alongside some very strong traffic. Coverage of seasonal TV stalwarts Strictly Come Dancing and I’m A Celebrity drove significant audience on Entertainment Daily alongside The Daily Mash’s spin-off show Late Night Mash which debuted on Dave and reporting on Netflix phenomenon Squid Game engaged readers of The Tab.

Digitalbox’s strategic focus on creating compelling content optimised for mobile has delivered disproportionate growth in its advertising revenues owing to increased demand for high-quality mobile inventory.

The Company expects to announce its FY2021 Final Audited Results in March 2022.
