Further buoyant organic growth in Q4 - 2016 revenue up +15.4% to €107.3 million - International activity accounted for 52% of total activity

In FY 2016, the aufeminin group’s revenue totalled €107.3 million, up 15.4% compared with the previous year. In the 4th quarter, revenue totalled €31.6 million, up +8.9%, an organic growth in line with that recorded in previous quarters.

On the French market, the aufeminin group continued to record very satisfactory performances, with an acceleration in its growth over the second half of the year.

International activity recorded strong growth of +22.1% to €55.9 million over the year and +4.2% to €16.1 million over the 4th quarter.

  • On Aufeminin’s sites in Europe, we have seen a slowdown in growth associated with the fall in “display advertising” in Q4, notably with a significant decrease in Spain;
  • Simultaneously, My Little Paris, thanks to the diversification of its revenue and to the launch of its offers abroad, notably in Japan, has seen substantial growth;
  • In the United States, the strategic repositioning of Livingly Media resulted in further robust growth in its activity.

Next financial publication: 2016 annual results, on 8 March 2017 (after market).
