472.0m for 1H 2022. This represents organic growth of 2.7% y/y and 0.2% at

Adjusted EBITDA margin was 52.9%. The 2021 dividend was 16 cents per share. The
proposed interim dividend payable in August 2022 is 4.8 cents per share. Avast
has suspended new business and renewals of existing business in Russia and
Belarus due to the conflict in Ukraine, among other reasons. CEO Ondřej Vlček
added that the business in the consumer and SME segments contributed USD 446.7m
and USD 25.3m to total revenue, respectively. Adjusted EBITDA margin was
impacted by high investments in customer acquisition and retention, the Digital
Trust Services (DTS) segment and the acquisition of Canadian company SecureKey.
