**ARPU is calculated as Unaudited revenue / Active users.

The volume of SMS messages sent decreased by 5% year-on-year in the second quarter and by 6% in the first half of the year. The main reasons for the decline continue to be U.S. regulations restricting the sending of bulk SMS messages from unregistered advertising campaigns and the financial situation of customers.

Average revenue per user (ARPU) increased by 47% compared to the second quarter of last year. The increase in ARPU was driven by a price increase in May, 2023 and the closure of low-volume customer accounts affected by U.S. regulatory restrictions and price sensitivity. As the number of active users declined, the quality of the customer portfolio improved, which is reflected in the ARPU growth. There will be no impact from price increases in the coming quarters.

Distribution to shareholders

The shareholders of TextMagic AS decided in the second quarter of 2024 to reduce the share capital and make a payout of EUR 0.59 per share, for a total of nearly €5 million. The payout will be made at the end of 2024, in accordance with the deadlines set out in the Commercial Code.
