Chairman's Statement

Looking back at 2023, the quality of our colleagues has shone through significantly in what has been a difficult year for the global entertainment and digital advertising markets.

It is a testament to our people that we have faced the challenges head on and delivered a good financial performance, continued our growth and made strategic progress. Our ability to generate extraordinary content that resonates with over 450m people globally is the most significant reflection of the quality of our people and the leadership of our management teams.

The loyalty of our clients is also replicated by our other stakeholders, including our shareholders, who continue to support the business and the vision of the executive team. Their belief in our operations, model, and ability to effectively engage with our social and digital following is something that the Board and I are really thankful for..

Chief Executive's Review

2023 was another year of progress for LBG Media. Our global audience increased to 452m, our video views reached a record 128bn, we continued with our US expansion with the step-change acquisition of Betches and we demonstrated flexibility in our operating model with the positive changes we made in Australia and New Zealand.

Our market leading engagement and growth in global audience makes us even more attractive for brands and agencies seeking to reach our highly engaged young adult audience. The combination of our existing footprint in the US, and the addition of Betches, provides us with an excellent foundation from which to build market share in the largest advertising market in the world; and we are already seeing the benefits, with multiple joint blue-chip account wins.

LBG Media has evolved into a global entertainment platform, able to create content that is engaging and resonates with hundreds of millions of people through a range of media. Our talent and dedication to our core mission, which is to give young adults a voice by building communities that laugh, think and act, ensures we remain true to our purpose and fuels our growth.
