Monthly Recurring Revenue ([3]) 1,500 1,960

Paris, January 27, 2022 - Ateme (ISIN: FR0011992700), the emerging leader in video delivery infrastructure, posted revenues of €25.5 million for the Fourth Quarter of 2021, down 8%, and by 12% like-for-like. As a reminder, the Fourth Quarter 2020 was exceptionally strong due to several significant projects slipping from the Third Quarter.

Total revenues for the year to December 31, 2021 stood at €81.1 million, up 15% versus 2020 and by 2% on a like-for-like basis.

  • EMEA delivered healthy growth of 10% like-for-like with revenues €33.4 million. This region benefited from substantial Anevia revenues, as reflected in reported revenues, up 34%.
  • Reported revenues in the USA / Canada were stable at €26.6 million, and down by 4% like-for-like.
  • Latin America revenues rose 8% to €8.1 million with a significant contribution from Anevia. Like-for-like, they were down by 24%.
  • Asia-Pacific delivered 10% growth to €13.0 million. Like-for-like revenues were up 8%.

Significant increase in recurring revenue streams

Monthly recurring revenues (MRR) ( 3 ) rose from €1,500,000 in January 2021 to €1,960,000 in January 2022, considerably exceeding expectations of around €400,000 in annual growth. As a result, Ateme is starting the year with over 23.5 million euros in recurring revenues, strongly improving the quality and visibility of our topline.

Looking ahead

As usual, the Second Half of the year saw an acceleration in sales, with a 40% / 60% split of the annual topline.

The product mix in the Second Half being similar that of the First Half, the gross margin is expected in the range of 60% versus 55% in 2020. This improvement continues to be reinvested in the development of the business, notably through R&D, with a global head count (in terms of FTE) up from 445 to 486; consequently, the EBITDA is expected around breakeven.

Looking ahead, the integration of Anevia is now 100% complete with synergies set to materialize in 2022 both in terms of savings and cross-selling. The sales growth target of 10% to 15% and EBITDA target of 5 to 10 million euros are confirmed for the period 2022 – 2023

Corporate Governance

On January 26, 2022, the Board of Directors voted to propose to the next Shareholders Meeting the nomination of Beatrice Pesquet-Pospescu as an independent board member. Beatrice Pesquet-Popescu is Research and Innovation Director at Thales AMS (Air Mobility Solutions), where she defines, implements, and manages research and innovation plans in line with the four pillar technologies of the group: Big Data, AI, cybersecurity, IoT. She is also an internationally recognized leader in the field of machine learning, AI and multimedia (video compression, 3DTV, networking), statistical signal and image processing, data modeling, convex optimization and big data.

Michel Artières, Chairman and CEO of Ateme, commented: “Ateme has had a successful year, in spite of the global supply chain challenges which have beset our sector, with a growing topline on both a published and like-for-like basis. Moreover, we have developed a strong pipeline to sell Anevia's NEA solutions to our Ateme installed customer base, which will pay off in 2022 and help deliver on our growth objectives. Growth in MRR in 2021 significantly exceeded our expectations, generating over €5m in additional annual recurring revenues and gross margin at the start of 2022. Finally, I'm excited to propose Beatrice Pesquet-Popescu as new board member; through her experience she brings a wealth of valuable knowledge to Ateme, whilst her appointment will enhance our governance in terms of independence and diversity.”
