 Trading Update and Contract Wins


Current Trading

7digital (AIM:7DIG), the B2B digital music and radio services company, today issues a trading update for the half-year ended 30th June 2017.

7digital performed well in the first half of the year.  Total Group revenue grew by 13% to £5.93m from £5.25m in H1 2016, with growth across the high margin licencing and creative revenue streams particularly strong.  Licensing revenues rose by 25% with the key monthly recurring revenues up by 27%.   The cash balance at 30th June 2017 was £1.3m.          

During the first half of 2017, 7digital was awarded contracts with a combined value of approximately £5.0m, including set up fees and monthly recurring revenues.  These included contracts with DTS for work in the automotive sector, the world's first full MQA high quality streamed music service with HDtracks and the re-launch of TriPlay's eMusic service in the US.

MediaMarktSaturn, Europe's largest retailer of consumer electronics, also became a new 7digital customer after the completion of the acquisition of 24-7 Entertainment on June 20th.  The Company has a three-year contract for existing "Juke" music services in Germany and the Netherlands totalling £11m, and a new contract for development of future services worth £6m.  The acquisition is expected to add approximately £5m to 7digital revenues in 2017 and more than £8m in 2018.

New Contract Wins

7digital is pleased to announce today that it has signed a two-year deal with Global Eagle Entertainment Inc. (Global Eagle).  Global Eagle is a leading worldwide provider of inflight entertainment content to the airline industry and offers Wi-Fi, movies, television, music, interactive software and portable inflight entertainment services to a number of regional and flagship carriers.  Customers of Global Eagle include Southwest Airlines, Norwegian Air, Emirates, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, Air France and flydubai.  7digital will provide Global Eagle with technology, access to music, web development expertise, and rights holder reporting for new inflight services launching in Q4 2017 across a number of territories. 

The Company has also agreed a three-year deal with French company Deedo SAS to power a new streaming service across 27 markets.  The focus of the service, due to launch in Q4 2017, is to cater for listeners in Africa and the African diaspora with Pan African music catalogues.  7digital will provide technology, access to music and web app development for the service.


In addition, 7digital has signed a deal with US-based company Fan Label, a dynamic new music fan engagement platform set for release in September, to provide access to the Company's preview clip catalogue for a new service.  7digital will also handle licensing and rights holder reporting.  The contract is for a minimum initial term of two years.

As detailed at the recent AGM, the Board now expects 2017 to result in a much reduced loss when compared to that of 2016.  The Board remains confident of substantial revenue growth in the second half of this year and expects that 2018 will be a year of profitability and positive operating cash flow as the full benefits of the 24-7 acquisition are realised.

Simon Cole, Chief Executive of 7digital, said:

"We have made a strong start to the year, at a time when we were also concluding our deal with MediaMarktSaturn to acquire the 24-7 business.  That acquisition is already making a contribution and, as previously announced, we expect it to make a significant contribution to our full year revenues.

It is also pleasing to see, amongst our recent customer wins, a new area of business opening up with the addition of our first in-flight entertainment client.  As the digital music industry continues to expand into new areas of current music consumption, 7digital is well positioned to be the provider to the many new services which will emerge".
