EBITDA is expected to increase to DKK 15 - 18 million. Freetrailer achieved an EBITDA of DKK 8.1 million in the financial year 2022/23. The new guidance corresponds to an expected growth in EBITDA of 85 - 122%.

Freetrailer also adjusts the forecast for the total number of rentals in 2023/24 upwards from the previously announced +1,180,000 to +1,260,000. The expectation for the total rental portfolio in 23/24 is adjusted from +4,750 to +4,850.

Comment from the CEO

"We have managed to continue the solid growth in the third quarter of the financial year, that we experienced in the first two quarters. The results show great increases in revenue, EBITDA, number of rentals and the rental portfolio, which clearly shows that Freetrailer's concept is profitable and scalable.

At the same time, Freetrailer continues to invest in growth. Since January 2023, we have recruited more than 50 new employees, including strengthening our IT-team to ten developers with experience in scaling IT-platforms. Freetrailer's platform is the foundation for further development and growth," says Freetrailer Group CEO, Nicolai Frisch Erichsen.
