Berlin, 23. November 2016 – YOC AG (Frankfurt, Prime Standard, ISIN DE0005932735) expects up to 20 per cent revenue growth for the full financial year 2016. The positive development throughout the financial year so far is followed by a successful ongoing final quarter of 2016. As a consequence, the revenue per employee is increasing to around kEUR 220 (previous year: kEUR 184).
YOC Group’s positive development in the fourth quarter of the current financial year is based on growth in all countries. Owing to personnel measures and the increased introduction of programmatic products, the company will record revenue growth in the UK for the first time again.

Dirk Kraus, member of the Management Board and founder of YOC AG: “The formation as a product based provider of mobile advertising who realises optimal monetising for its partners through programmatic channels within the scope of private marketplaces as well as traditional direct trade leads to a sustainable increase of revenue and gross profit.” The company expects a further rise of the gross profit margin to 35 per cent in the current financial year (previous year: 33 per cent).
“For financial year 2017 we expect a further growth of revenue and the gross profit margin. Meanwhile, the cost structure will remain stable”, Dirk Kraus explains.
