Online and mobile marketplace for takeaway food, JUST EAT, posts 50% increase in like-for-like orders

JUST EAT, a leading online and mobile marketplace for takeaway food, today issues a full year order update for the year ended 31 December 2014.

The strong momentum reported during the year has continued enabling management to remain highly confident for the full year results both financially and operationally, the company said.

Total orders for the 12 months to 31 December 2014 increased by 52% compared to the same period in 2013. This figure includes the benefit of consolidating the orders from its French business – – from July 2014 but excludes any Brazilian orders from November 2014 onwards when that business became an associate.

On a like-for-like basis, JUST EAT said its orders increased by 50% in the full year compared to the same period in 2013.

JUST EAT said the performance across all markets was driven by ongoing investment in marketing, staff, technology and new products supported by strong underlying momentum in the channel shift to consumers ordering takeaway on mobile devices and online.

David Buttress, CEO, said: “I am delighted with our continued growth in 2014 which provides an excellent base for further development of all our businesses. We enter 2015 with confidence and we will continue to invest to give consumers more reasons to order their takeaway favourites through JUST EAT’s online and mobile platforms.”

JUST EAT will report its 2014 full year results on 17 March 2015.
