The Scandinavian internet job board, Jobindex A/S (JOBNDX:CPH), has announced its second quarter results. Revenue was up by 7% at €3.92 million compared to €3.65 in Q2 2011 while profit before interest and tax (EBIT) also rose 3% to €1.12 million from €1.09. However, the job market remains weak, and the number of paid job advertisements on the site in Q2 2012 actually decreased 3% compared to the Q2 2011.
The increase in revenue was ascribed to the sale of several additional products, mainly Employer Branding and various recruitment products such as CV-match and job advertisement writing. The company have also expanded the development and newbizz department, that cultivates small new customers, and increased marketing in Sweden and Norway.
Looking at the specifics of the Danish job market, Jobindex stated that the optimism of the first three months was replaced by a decline in April and May, while the number of job ads again rose slightly in June and July. The bright spot was the public sector where the number of job ads once again begun to rise. There are ca. 10% fewer vacancies in autumn than in spring.
The preliminary results fit well with Jobindex’s expectations for the whole of 2012 for revenues of €14.80 million and a profit before interest €3.36 million assuming that the European debt crisis does not flare up again. Look to the future the job market has been weak since 2009 and Jobindex believe that this year may be a model for many years to come.
