Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Milan, Oslo and Paris 4 November 2021 – Euronext, the leading pan-European market infrastructure, today publishes its results for the third quarter of 2021.

  • Revenue and income at €350.6 million (+145.8 million, +71.2%, +10.2% like-for-like1):

    • Borsa Italiana Group contributed €121.1 million to revenue for full quarter of consolidation.

    • Trading revenue grew to €124.2 million (+63.6%), primarily driven by the consolidation of Borsa Italiana capital markets, as well as increased cash equity volumes combined with strong yield. Fixed income trading revenue increased to €23.8 million, driven by double-digit growth in MTS cash trading activities.

    • Post-trade revenue grew to €83.1 million (+86.2%), mainly due to the consolidation of the Italian CSD, Monte Titoli, and of the clearing activities of the Italian CCP, CC&G. Custody and settlement revenue growth in the Nordic CSDs was less dynamic than previous quarters reflecting notably normalised levels of retail activity. Clearing revenue increased to €27.5 million. Net treasury income generated by CC&G was €12.9 million.

    • Advanced Data Services revenue grew to €49.8 million (+44.3%) due to robust index and core data businesses and the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group data activities.

    • Listing revenue grew to €50.8 million (+42.1%), resulting from strengthened leading position for the listing of equities, with 51 listings, and of ETFs, together with the continued growth of Euronext Corporate Services, and the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group.

    • Non-volume related revenue accounted for 55% of Q3 2021 total revenue (vs 54% in Q3 2020) and covered 131% of operating expenses, excluding D&A (vs. 128% in Q3 2020).

  • EBITDA at 203.0 million (+€85.3 million, +72.4%, +13.7% like-for-like), EBITDA margin at 57.9% (+0.4pts); EBITDA margin like-for-like at 60.4% (+1.8pts):

    • Operating expenses, excluding D&A, grew to €147.6 million (+69.5%) as a result of the consolidation of costs from acquired businesses, for €54.8 million, and costs related to the integration of the Borsa Italiana Group, as previously announced.

  • Reported net income, share of the parent company shareholders, at €115.8 million (+€45.6 million, +64.9%):

    • Exceptional items were €2.0 million and net financing expenses were €7.3 million.

    • Results from equity investments amounted to €11.8 million mainly resulting from a received dividend of €9.2 million.

    • Income tax rate was 29.0%.

Stéphane Boujnah, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Managing Board of Euronext, said:

In the third quarter of 2021, Euronext revenue grew by 71.2% to reach €350.6 million, driven by double-digit organic revenue growth, especially in listing, trading and clearing activities, and the continued good performance of Borsa Italiana, MTS, CC&G and Monte Titoli. EBITDA grew faster than revenue, to 203.0 million, thanks to a strong cost discipline to limit the impact of integration costs. Adjusted EPS increased by 18.1% to €1.21 per share as a result of this solid operating performance.

We confirmed again this quarter Euronext’s position as the leading listing venue in Europe, for equity, debt and ETFs. We welcomed 51 new equity listings, including 21 Tech companies IPOs, and 97 new ETFs. We launched mid-October, together with Borsa Italiana, the MIB ESG index, the first ESG blue-chip index for Italy following the launch of the CAC 40 ESG earlier this year.

We are pleased to welcome Fabrizio Testa as CEO of the Borsa Italiana Group, Head of Fixed Income trading for the Group, and member of the Managing Board of Euronext N.V. as of 28 November 2021.

Euronext’s new strategic plan, including 2024 financial guidance, will be presented on 9 November in Milan.

Revenue

In the third quarter of 2021, Euronext consolidated revenue and income increased to €350.6 million, up +71.2%, primarily resulting from (i) the first full quarter of consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group and from (ii) double digit organic growth especially in listing, trading and clearing activities, partially offsetting lower custody and settlement activity. As a reminder, VP Securities was consolidated from 4 August 2020. On a like-for-like basis and at constant currencies, Euronext consolidated revenue and income grew double-digit (+10.2%) in Q3 2021, at €213.4 million, compared to Q3 2020.

Non-volume related revenue accounted for 55% of total Group revenue in Q3 2021, compared to 54% in Q3 2020, reflecting the expanded post-trade business. The operating cost coverage ratio was at 131% in Q3 2021, compared to 128% in Q3 2020.

EBITDA

Operational expenses excluding depreciation & amortisation increased to €147.6 million, up +69.5%, primarily as a result of the consolidation of the costs from the Borsa Italiana Group, VP Securities (until 4 August) and 3Sens (part of Corporate Services) for €54.8 million, as well as integration costs. On a like-for-like basis, operational expenses excluding depreciation & amortisation increased by +5.3% compared to Q3 2020.

Consequently, EBITDA for the quarter was up at €203.0 million, representing an EBITDA margin of 57.9%, up +0.4 points compared to Q3 2020, despite integration activity. On a like-for-like basis, EBITDA for Q3 2021 was up +13.7%, to €128.9 million, and EBITDA margin was 60.4%, up 1.8 points compared to the same perimeter in Q3 2020.

Net income, share of the parent company shareholders

Depreciation and amortisation accounted for €37.9 million in Q3 2021, up +145.8%, resulting mainly from the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group, including its related PPA for €14.0 million (for a full quarter of consolidation). On a like-for-like basis, depreciation & amortisation was down -2.7% compared to Q3 2020 at €13.7 million.

Operating profit before exceptional items was €165.1 million, a +61.3% increase compared to Q3 2020. On a like-for-like basis, operating profit before exceptional items was up +16.0% compared to Q3 2020, at €115.2 million.

€2.0 million of exceptional costs were reported in Q3 2021, mainly related to the Borsa Italiana Group transaction acquisition.

Net financing expense for Q3 2021 was €7.3 million compared to a net financing expense of €3.4 million in Q3 2020. This increase results from the costs of the newly issued debt in relation with the financing of the acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Group

Results from equity investments amounted to €11.8 million in Q3 2021, reflecting a dividend received from Euroclear, accounting for the payment of the 2020 dividend (€9.2 million), and the contribution from LCH SA, in which Euronext owns an 11.1% stake. As a reminder, in Q3 2020, Euronext reported €1.8 million of results from equity investments solely reflecting the contribution from LCH SA.

Income tax for Q3 2021 was €48.5 million. This translated into an effective tax rate of 29.0% for the quarter (Q3 2020: €25.6 million and 26.4% respectively), impacted by non-deductible exceptional costs.

Share of non-controlling interests mainly relating to the Borsa Italiana Group and Nord Pool amounted to €3.2 million in Q3 2021.

As a result, the reported net income, share of the parent company shareholders, for Q3 2021 increased by +64.9% compared to Q3 2020, to €115.8 million. This represents a reported EPS of €1.08 basic and fully diluted in Q3 2021, compared to €0.92 basic and fully diluted in Q3 20204. The number of shares used was 92,447,841 for the basic calculation and 92,678,838 for the fully diluted calculation5.

Adjusted EPS is up +18.1% in Q3 2021, at €1.21 per share, compared to an adjusted EPS of €1.02 per share in Q3 2020.

In Q3 2021, Euronext reported a net cash flow from operating activities of €213.5 million, compared to €71.7 million in Q3 2020, reflecting higher positive changes in working capital. Excluding the impact on working capital from CC&G and Nord Pool CCP activities, net cash flow from operating activities accounted for 86% of EBITDA in Q3 2021.

Listing revenue was €50.8 million in Q3 2021, an increase of +42.1% compared to Q3 2020, driven by record in equity listing, positive traction of ESG bond listing and the performance of Euronext Corporate Services despite the usual slower summer months.

Euronext Corporate Services reported a strong performance, generating €9.0 million in revenue in Q3 2021, increasing from €7.8 million in Q3 2020.

With the appointment of Fabrizio Testa at the Managing Board of Euronext N.V.1, Italian business leaders contribute to every single level of the Euronext Group governance: the CEO of MTS and Giorgio Modica, Group CFO, are members of the Extended Managing Board; CDP Equity (CDPE) and Intesa Sanpaolo are members of the Committee of Reference Shareholders; Piero Novelli is an independent member of Euronext N.V Supervisory Board, which he chairs since 1 September 2021; Alessandra Ferrone is a member of the Supervisory Board representing CDPE as one of the two largest shareholders in Euronext N.V; Andrea Sironi is Chairman of the Board of Borsa Italiana; and Consob has joined the College of Regulators of Euronext N.V.

The combination of Borsa Italiana with Euronext’s European project is a unique opportunity to leverage the strengths and the high level of expertise of the teams in Italy, and across the European locations of the combined Group, for the benefit of our clients and to enhance the financing of the real economy in Italy and in Europe.
