Cliq Digital is a sales and marketing group for digital products and services. It also operates a proprietary payments platform. It is headquartered in Dusseldorf and has an office in Amsterdam. Via its network of affiliate partners and its own direct media buying platform it has customers across the globe. In 2016 82% of sales were generated in Europe, 10% in the Asia Pacific region and 8% in the Americas.
CLIQ Digital’s half year report shows progress quarter-on-quarter, although gross revenues were 8% down on prior year. Margins are starting to improve after earlier cost cutting, and customer base value (CLIQ’s measure of expected future revenues) has edged ahead from the end FY18 level. Consumer appetite for digital entertainment remains very strong across product groups and the company needs to ensure that its content portfolio remains sufficiently attractive to bring in (and retain existing) subscribers. The market valuation is at a persistent discount to peers.
