In the third quarter of 2022, NRJ Group reported consolidated revenue (excluding barters) of €88.7 million, an increase
of +1.7% compared to the third quarter of 2021. Consolidated revenue (excluding barters) for the first 9 months of the
2022 financial year totalled €272.9 million, an increase of +8.7% compared to the same period in 2021.
According to the Cross Médias study(2), more than 8 in 10 French people are entertained by the Group’s media each month.
RADIO
The positive momentum seen in the first half of 2022 continued into the third quarter but at a slower rate given the more limited growth in the radio advertising market and the less positive base effect. Revenue(1) for the Group’s core division totalled €54.2 million, an increase of +4.4% compared to the third quarter of 2021.
While events and point of sale events still hadn’t returned to pre-COVIDlevels in the third quarter of 2022, revenue(1) for local Radio grew significantly by +12.9% in France, and that of national Radio grew by +2.0%. International Radio recorded growth of +1.8% in its revenue(1).
In France, for a radio media which brings together 39.4 million listeners every day(3), thanks to its dominant positions, particularly with the 2549 age group target(4) and its commercial strategy, the Group recorded strong growth in
radio revenue over 9 months, at both a national (+8.6%) and local (+24.1%) level. This strong growth in France, together with international growth (+11.2%), enabled the Group’s core business to generate revenue(1) of €162.4
million in the first 9 months of 2022, up +12.6% compared to the same period in 2021.
TELEVISION
In the third quarter of 2022, TV remained the most powerful media foundation, bringing together 41.3 million viewers
each day on average(5). Average daily viewing time among individuals aged 4+(6) came to 3 hours 04 minutes(7), comparable to 2019’s viewing time of 3 hours 03 minutes(8).
Over the period, the Group’s Television division’s free-to-air channels (NRJ 12 and Chérie 25) maintained their audience share for the high commercial priority targets. As such, NRJ 12 and Chérie 25 achieved a combined audience share among the 2549 age group(9) of 2.8%, and 3.1% for the Women Under 50 Responsible for Purchases target(9).
After 5 initial dynamic months, the TV advertising market has been on a downward trend since June, particularly due
to the very strong recovery it benefitted from in summer 2021. In this context, due to a negative base effect, the Group’s TV division recorded a -11.2% drop in revenue(1) in the third quarter of 2022, down to €16.6 million compared
to the third quarter of 2021, but an increase of +1.2% compared to the third quarter of 2019.
The TV division’s revenue(1) totalled €57.2 million for the first 9 months of the financial year, down -0.7%compared to the same period of the previous financial year.
BROADCASTING
In the third quarter of the 2022 financial year, the Broadcasting division continued its sales momentum and recorded revenue(1) of €17.9 million, up +7.8% compared to the third quarter of 2021. At the end of September 2022, revenue(1) for the division totalled €53.3 million, a surge of +8.1% compared with the same period in 2021. This is due to growth in
all FM, DAB+ and DTT activities.
****************
Outlook
Media revenue visibility remains very limited for the end of 2022.
The Group‘s electricity supply contract for its activities in France covered the period of 2019 to 2022. In the current exceptional environment of rising energy prices, NRJ Group has signed a new electricity supply contract for the year 2023 only. This contract will result in an increase in electricity costs for the Group currently estimated at EUR 12 million in 2023, compared to 2022. Nevertheless, the Group believes that this amount could be reduced by certain factors, including ARENH(10) regulated prices and state aid mechanisms from which the Group could benefit. The Group also anticipates a decrease in its electricity costs in 2024 and 2025 compared to the exceptional cost level expected in 2023, due to the evolution of the level of electricity production in France and the various action plans it is implementing.
Next release: Full year 2022 revenue on February 2, 2023 (after market close).
