Annual Report 2013
  • A good financial year

    We grew revenue and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation at a double-digit rate in F13, while net profit after tax was up 4 per cent on last year to a new record high of $78.6m.

    Chairman David Kirk described the result as “solid and satisfying”, and excellent news for our 6,648 shareholders who will receive another strong final dividend of 8.3 cents per share in September 2013, up from the 7.8 cents per share a year ago. 
  • Classified strength

    Our trio of classified advertising businesses led the way on the growth front in F13.
    Trade Me Motors, Trade Me Property and Trade Me Jobs delivered a strong performance in F13 with revenue coming in 29 per cent ahead of last year. 
  • We’re buying & selling too

    We’ve acquired three new businesses and sold our group-buying website.
    LifeDirect is our latest acquisition, announced in August 2013.  It is an online comparison website for life and health insurance. We’re  excited about its model of providing consumers with a single venue to compare insurance products and we think it will be an excellent fit for Trade Me’s community.
  • Upwardly mobile

    The number of visits to Trade Me from smartphones and tablets continues to grow, and we expect this to continue throughout F14.
    This year we’ve extended our presence across multiple platforms including an iPad app for Trade Me that zeroes in on delivering a better experience for Trade Me buyers, dedicated iPhone and iPad real  estate apps for Trade Me Property that make extensive use of map functionality, and meaty upgrades for our Trade Me iPhone and Android apps.
  • Trade Me HQ

    Employing great people was the key contributor to our increase in expenses in F13.
    Our expenses were up 13 per cent on F12, primarily driven by a 15 per cent growth in staff numbers.
