Carsten Koerl, CEO of Sportradar, said: “I am very pleased with our strong results driven by exceptional execution this past year.  We saw excellent performance across all of our key performance metrics despite challenging macroeconomic conditions including a second consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA in the US.

“Our continued long-term partnerships with leading global sports bodies, and innovation across new technologies such as artificial intelligence and computer vision and, as important, a team passionate about delivering solutions to our clients, make us very excited about our growth in 2023 and beyond.”

Furthermore, Ulrich Harmuth, Interim CFO, added: “Our fourth quarter financial results illustrate the momentum we’ve built throughout 2022.

“We demonstrated operational leverage in our business model, despite making significant investments in our products and technology, streamlined our organisation to be more customer-centric, and strengthened our balance sheet by repaying our debt.

“Our 2023 guidance of revenue growth and margin expansion reflects the investments we have made to date and the growing global sports market opportunity.”
