Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris – 28 July 2016 – Today Euronext announced its results for the second quarter and for the first six months of 2016.

Euronext has delivered its most profitable quarter since the IPO despite market uncertainty causing lighter volumes until the outcome of the UK referendum on 23 June 2016. Revenue generated by non-volumes operations (listing, market data, market solutions) have more than offset the decrease in transaction-based businesses. It reinforces our confidence in our capability to deliver the company’s Agility for Growth plan, which is built on the resilience of our core business with ongoing cost discipline and growth in selected initiatives. In spite of the uncertainties for the second half of 2016, we are well positioned to capture opportunities arising from changes in the industry landscape. said Stéphane Boujnah, Chairman and CEO of the Managing Board of Euronext NV.
