Euronext publishes full year 2015 results

Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris – 17 February 2016 – Today Euronext announced its results for the full year of 2015.

  • Successful achievement of the IPO objectives undertaken for 2016 a year in advance:
    • Third party revenue of €518.5 million, while IPO objective was to reach €500 million by the end of 2016
    • Cumulated efficiencies of €83 million net (run-rate), while IPO objective was €60 million then revised up to €80 million net by the end of 2016
    • Full-year EBITDA margin of 54.7%, while IPO objective was 45%, then revised up to 53% by the end of 2016
  • Consistent dividend policy, with a €1.24 per share dividend proposed for approval at the AGM on 12 May 2016, which represents an increase of 48% compared with €0.84 per share paid last year

Our strong results in 2015 were underpinned by a supportive Eurozone economic environment; macro uncertainty has been a solid driver of volumes on Euronext’s markets. Our  revenue performance, combined with a rigorous approach to cost control, allowed Euronext to achieve, a year ahead of schedule, the objectives set out at its IPO.  We are pleased to be in a position to improve the value we deliver to our shareholders, proposing for approval at our AGM in May the payment of €1.24 dividend per share, an increase of nearly 50% compared to last year. Trading activity in 2016 has been resilient so far; Euronext is well positioned to benefit from volatility emerging from the current environment. I look forward to presenting, in the course of the second quarter of 2016, our new strategic plan. This plan will be structured on two key pillars: revenue growth and cost discipline,” said Stephane Boujnah, CEO and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext NV.
