9M 2021: Net revenues in the nine months to September 30, 2021 were €1,282m, +33% YOY.

Europe, Africa & South America (EASA)

The EASA Segment has seen strong YOY growth in net revenues for Q3 (+15%) and the nine months to September 30, 2021 (+21%). Main drivers for the development have been continued expansion with Global Internet and BFSI Clients, contribution of Covid-19 related services and the continuation of active portfolio management.

Global English, Middle East & South East Asia (GEMS)

The GEMS Segment has seen strong YOY growth in net revenues for Q3 (+52%) and the nine months to September 30, 2021 (+45%). This has been driven by continued expansion with Global Internet Clients, particularly in the Philippines, Canada, the US, Malaysia, India, and Kenya.

China & East Asia (CEA)

The CEA Segment has delivered net revenues for Q3 of €27m and for the nine months to September 30, 2021, of €68m. Given that the China business was consolidated for the first time on January 1, 2021, there are no comparable figures for the previous year. The positive contribution from CEA has been driven by further expansion of the footprint in China, the continuing growth of digital consumer engagement services, and the focus on Consumer Products and digital clients. The positive contribution from CEA is in line with management expectations.


Given these positive developments, the management is confident to increase its previous guidance for the full fiscal year, ending December 31, 2021. The Company now expects net revenues to be in the range of €1,700m to €1,750m (previous guidance, €1,650m to €1,700m) and operating EBITDA of €290m to €310m (previous guidance, €280m to €300m). The existing guidance for the midterm remains unchanged.
