YOC with sales growth in Q3/2020 – further increase in sales because of VIS.X® technology platform
Berlin, 15 September 2020 – In the third quarter of 2020, YOC AG (Frankfurt, Prime Standard, ISIN DE0005932735) stopped the downward trend in revenue of the second quarter of 2020 caused by the Corona crisis. According to initial projections, revenues in the third quarter of 2020 are expected to amount to between EUR 3.5 million and EUR 3.6 million and thus exceed the level of the same period of the previous year (Q3/2019: EUR 3.4 million).
Until the outbreak of the Corona Pandemic, YOC AG’s sales growth at group level was around 20 % compared to the previous year. Due to the subsequent reluctance of advertisers in the period from March to May 2020, the company had to accept an increasing number of order cancellations, resulting in a 24 % drop in sales in the second quarter of 2020.
As a consequence, the revenue level of the previous year (9M/2019: EUR 10.2M) is expected to be almost reached already at the end of the third quarter of the current fiscal year 2020, despite the consequences of the Corona Pandemic.
Sebastian Bauermann, Director of Finance at YOC AG: „Due to the continuous increase in the trading volume of our technology platform VIS.X®, we have already reached the previous year’s revenue level again. At the same time, we will significantly increase the company’s profitability not only in the third quarter of 2020, but also in the first nine months of fiscal year 2020.”
YOC AG’s report on the third quarter of 2020 will be published on 18 November 2020.
