Growth, cash and opportunity
ZOO has announced an exceptionally strong H1 period (to end-September) with revenue almost doubling year on year and strong growth in both profitability and cash generation. The result is in line with September’s trading update, which prompted significant upgrades to estimates for this year and next. The business appears well positioned to benefit from ongoing growth in media content production, with the key streaming providers racing to deliver international (and therefore multi-language) content and ad-supported tiers. This represents a material opportunity for ZOO, underpinned by the well-timed roll-out of ZOO’s strategic geographic hubs and investment in capacity. The FY23E outlook remains in line with market expectations, and we look forward to further delivery in H2 and beyond.
