Impact of Jopkeeper

The latest trading results are skewed due to the JobKeeper grant and repayment scheme.

“The FY22 H1 trading results on a reported basis are significantly impacted by the timing of the JobKeeper grant and repayment, and the benefits and costs of Zipline, our voluntary employee program undertaken during the early stages of the COVID pandemic,” Mr Pellegrino explains.

In the first half of FY21, Domain benefited from a total of $8.7 million EBITDA contributions from JobKeeper and Zipline.

Without these benefits, the company faced an additional expense of $7.5 million in the first half of FY22.

In their report, Domain calculated the estimated EBITDA excluding this additional JobKeeper and Zipline expense for the half year to December 2021.
