ad pepper media International N.V. maintains profitable growth

Nuremberg, Amsterdam, October 14, 2016

ad pepper media International N.V. concluded the first nine months of the
financial year with record sales of EUR 41,830k (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR 37,149k).
On a like-for-like basis, i.e. accounting for discontinued activities, the
Group's sales growth came to around 17.4 percent. With sales of EUR 8,092k
and growth of around 36.4 percent, the ad agents segment posted the most
dynamic growth within the Group (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR 5,932k). Sales in the ad
pepper segment totaled EUR 3,865k in the first nine months of 2016 and, on
a like-for-like basis, also showed double-digit growth of 14.4 percent (Q1-
Q3 2015: EUR 3,379k). Sales in the Webgains segment rose by around 13.5
percent to a new record level of EUR 29,866k (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR 26,317k). Due
in particular to the weakness of the British pound against the euro,
however, the rate of growth slowed in the past quarter. On a currency-
adjusted basis, this segment's sales growth over the nine-month period came
to around 20.0 percent.

The Group's like-for-like gross profit rose by around 15.2 percent in the
first nine months of 2016, with all three operating segments posting in
some cases substantial positive growth. The increase in the gross profit at
ad agents came to around 16.9 percent, while ad pepper reported growth of
around 17.0 percent and the Webgains segment boosted its gross profit by
around 8.4 percent. Excluding currency items, the gross profit at the
Webgains segment rose by 13.7 percent.

Assisted by the weakness in the British pound, the Group's operating costs
fell significantly by EUR 1,544k, or 13.1 percent, to EUR 10,276k in the
first three quarters of the financial year (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR 11,820k).
Thanks to improved cost structures in conjunction with higher gross
margins, the Group therefore upheld the positive performance already seen
in the first half. Group EBITDA for the first nine months of the current
financial year came to EUR 1,255k (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR -205k), with the
Webgains segment alone raising its EBITDA by EUR 624k to EUR 1,035k (Q1-Q3
2015: EUR 411k). The ad agents segment generated EBITDA of EUR 694k in the
first nine months of 2016 (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR -14k), while the ad pepper
segment improved its EBITDA to EUR 655k (Q1-Q3 2015: EUR 320k).

Liquid funds (including securities measured at fair value) amounted to EUR
18,280k (December 31, 2015: EUR 22,437k). The Group still has no
liabilities to banks.

The report on the first nine months of 2016 will be published on November
18, 2016.
