Based on our discussions with the sell-side analysts who publish equity research on Moonpig Group plc (“Moonpig Group”), our understanding of current market consensus is as follows:

FY 2024 (Actuals)

FY 2025 (Consensus)FY 2026 (Consensus)
Group revenue (£m)341.1361.7394.8
Group revenue growth YoY (%)6.6%6.0%9.2%
Adjusted EBITDA1 (£m)95.594.1102.4
Adjusted EBITDA margin rate2 (%)28.0%26.0%25.9%
Adjusted PBT3 (£m)58.259.668.0
Adjusted Basic Earnings Per Share4 (p)12.713.014.8

Moonpig Group has identified certain Alternative Performance Measures (“APMs”) that it believes provide additional useful information on the performance of the Group. These APMs are not defined within IFRS and are not intended to substitute or be considered as superior to IFRS measures. Furthermore, these APMs may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The definitions for adjusted measures in the above table are as follows:
1Adjusted EBITDA is profit before taxation, interest, depreciation, amortisation and Adjusting Items.
2Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenue.
3Adjusted PBT is profit before taxation and Adjusting Items.
4Adjusted Basic Earnings Per Share ("EPS") is stated before Adjusting Items.

Adjusting Items in FY24 comprised pre-IPO incentive scheme costs and amortisation on acquired intagibles. Adjusting Items for FY25 and FY26 are expected to relate solely to amortisation of acquired intangibles of approximately £8m per year (which is relevant to EBIT, PBT and EPS but not to EBITDA).
