NAGA Triumphs with Surprising H1 2023 Financial Results

AGA GROUP AG (XETRA: N4G) has recently released its final report for H1 2023, which indicates higher revenue and EBITDA than initially estimated.

The company’s revenue reached €25.2 million, nearly €5 million more than the preliminary figures published in July. This impressive increase demonstrates NAGA’s ability to capitalize on market opportunities and generate substantial income despite challenging economic conditions.

NAGA’s EBITDA also saw significant improvement, achieving €3.1 million. This is a notable increase from the preliminary EBITDA of €2.3 million reported in July. The rise in EBITDA is a clear indication of the company’s successful cost management strategies and operational efficiencies.

The report also highlighted an increase in NAGA’s total assets, which rose from €146.9 million in H2 2022 to €151.2 million in the first half of 2023. This growth in total assets underlines the company’s financial strength and stability, positioning it for further expansion in the coming years.

Despite reporting a net loss of €1.7 million, this figure is significantly smaller than the net loss of over €19 million in the previous six-month period ending in December 2022. This reduction in net loss underscores NAGA’s efforts to streamline its operations and reduce unnecessary expenditures.

The most recent revenues were lower than those of the previous half-year, which were €35 million. NAGA explained the revenue drop was primarily due to a shift in marketing strategy towards profitability rather than increasing revenue.

In a preliminary report published in October for the first three quarters of 2023, NAGA showed a profit of €4.2 million. However, a report for 2022 released in November showed a net loss of €37 million.

The final report also revealed a smaller increase in the number of active clients than initially reported. Instead of the projected 22% increase, the report indicated a rise of only 9.4%. As of June 30, 2023, the number of active users increased by 1,802, reaching a total of 21,035.

Despite these challenges, NAGA remains optimistic about future growth. The company expects significantly lower sales revenue compared to the previous year and a sharp rise in positive EBITDA for the 2023 financial year.

In a recent reshuffle, the company announced that its president, Blen Blinski, has resigned as the CEO to assume the role of Chief Information Officer. Michael Milonas has been appointed as the new CEO.

NAGA’s latest report did not have a significant impact on the German stock market, with NAGA’s shares trading at €1.028 on Wednesday.

So, NAGA’s H1 2023 report reflects the company’s resilience and adaptability in the face of global economic challenges. Despite some setbacks, the company has demonstrated strong financial performance and remains well-positioned for future growth.
