Icecat’s data-sheet production increased by 4% to 693K new product data-sheets, and the database contains now more than 14 million product data-sheets, each available in around 60 languages. The average number of PDSs updated by brand-type users has been stable. One of the most exciting trends is that the number of active Icecat LIVE users has expanded by 48% year-on-year to 631. Icecat LIVE is a service in which brand product stories, including rich media assets, are real-time displayed in retailer websites. Overall, these trends imply that the relevance of Icecat has further increased.
The revenues of Icecat N.V. (ISIN: NL0012751226) have increased by 7% during the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year. The gross profit increased over the same period by 9%. Due to rather stable operating expenses, the EBT increased by 16%. These earnings contribute to the already very solid cash position. We maintained growth of the business, despite a post-pandemic cooldown in the e-commerce market and recession fears, and we strive to maintain or further improve growth during 2023. The new orders increased during Q1-2023 with around 20%, which indicates that revenues growth is trending upward. Therefore, the outlook for our product information management services appears to remain solid.
