LINEDATA: Revenue for the first 9 months of 2019: €124.8m
Rounded, unaudited figures (€m)Neuilly-sur-Seine, 22 October 2019 – Linedata (LIN:FP) realised revenues of €124.8 million during the first nine months of 2019, broadly stable compared to the same period in 2018. On a like-for-like basis, activity was down 3.3%, solely due to exchange rate effects. Excluding the impact of the BOT activity, the Group posted pro-forma growth of 3.2%, with the start-up Loansquare acquired in January not having yet contributed to revenues.The recurring share of revenue continues to grow (+€2.0 million), reaching €94.0 million. As of the end of September 2019, this represented 75% of total revenue. This increase was driven, in particular, from the growth of SaaS revenues and recurring, subscription licences fees.Order intake totalled €35.3 million, down 14.6% compared to the first nine months of 2018, due to delayed signings since the start of the year.Performance analysis by segment:ASSET MANAGEMENT (Q1: €26.6M, -0.5%; Q2: €27.7M, +0.8%; Q3: €25.9M, -5.3%)Restated for the loss of the BOT contract at the end of 2018, which accounted for €4.5 million over the first nine months of the year, the Asset Management segment posted pro-forma growth of 4.1%. Without restatement, revenues for the segment were down 1.7%.The Software component of the business (€67.5m) confirmed a positive trend (+3.2%), driven by the success of the BackOffice offerings in the UK and the US. The Services division continued its development and posted pro-forma growth of 9.2%.LENDING & LEASING (Q1: €12.4M, -6.9%; Q2: €15.6M, +14.2%; Q3: €13.2M, -0.6%)Revenues at the end of September 2019 of the Lending & Leasing segment were up 2.3% compared with the same period in 2018 and benefited thanks in part to the deployment of the Linedata Ekip360 solution among the existing base and new customers.*2018 pro-forma revenues exclude the BOT (Build Operate Transfer) activity of Gravitas for which the last client was subject to reversibility at the end of 2018.OutlookIn the fourth quarter, the Group anticipates a significant improvement in order intake, driven in particular by the signing of significant projects in the Lending & Leasing segment. This should help mitigate booking delays over the financial year.For the whole year, Linedata anticipates revenues close to those of 2018 despite the unfavourable impact of the ending the BOT activity.Next announcement: 2019 annual revenues, 6 February 2020, after close of trading.ABOUT LINEDATA
