  • Continued progress on the delivery of targeted synergies, in relation to the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition:

    • €15.2 million cumulated run-rate annual synergies achieved at the end of Q1 2022.

    • €31.4 million of cumulated implementation costs incurred at the end of Q1 2022.

  • Confirmation of the delivery of a key milestone on the integration of the Borsa Italiana Group with the go-live of Euronext new Core Data Centre on 6 June 20227, unlocking the first business development synergies. Successful roll-out of the client installation at Euronext’s new Core Data Centre in Bergamo, Italy. Connectivity tests with clients confirmed that Euronext is on track to go live with the migration as planned.

  • Upgrade of the 2022 underlying cost guidance and of 2024 cumulated implementation costs, thanks to continued cost discipline and efficient integration:

    • 612 million underlying costs are expected in 2022 (-€10 million vs. €622 million from February 2022 guidance8).

    • €150 million of cumulated implementation costs are expected by 2024 (-€10 million vs. €160 million from November 2021 guidance9).

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

During this first quarter of 2022, which was marked in Europe by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Euronext’s business model remained resilient. Euronext delivered double-digit adjusted EBITDA pro forma growth at +11.4%, thanks to growth in trading and non-trading activities, combined with continued cost discipline and synergies related to the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition.

Including the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group, Euronext delivered more than 50% growth year on year in reported revenue, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income.

As a partner of choice and trust for European issuers, we welcomed 22 new listings over the first quarter of 2022 and confirmed Euronext’s position as the leading listing venue in Europe. We continued to deploy our ESG products suite to drive investment towards sustainable projects and we made significant progress on building our Fit for 1.5° ESG targets that will be announced in June.

We remained committed to pursuing successful integration while maintaining our continued cost discipline. By the end of March 2022, we had reached15.2 million of cumulated run-rate synergies in relation to the acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Group. We are on track for the migration to our new green Core Data Centre in Bergamo in June 2022, which will be the first key milestone generating business synergies of the strategic plan.

This continued cost discipline and successful ongoing integration lead us to upgrade our cost guidance by €10 million reducing 2022 expected underlying costs to €612 million, and additionally to decrease the amount of 2024 cumulated implementation costs by €10 million, to €150 million.

Our strong cash generation capabilities enabled us to significantly deleverage following the acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Group, as recently recognized by S&P. Our leverage position now enables additional strategic flexibility to deliver value to our shareholders.

Q1 2021 pro forma income statement disclosed in appendix

Q1 2022 revenue and income

In Q1 2022, Euronext consolidated revenue and income increased to €395.7 million, up +58.8%, resulting primarily from the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group, record trading activity supported by highly volatile market conditions and the strong performance of non-volume related businesses. On a like-for-like basis and at constant currencies, Euronext consolidated revenue and income grew +6.9% in Q1 2022, to €266.3 million, compared to Q1 2021. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition on 29 April 2021, Q1 2022 revenue grew +6.0%, demonstrating the relevance and resilience of Euronext’s business model in a volatile environment.

Despite strong trading revenue, non-volume related revenue accounted for 55% of total Group revenue in Q1 2022, compared to 58% pro forma in Q1 2021, reflecting the successful diversification toward non-volume related activities. The underlying operating expenses excluding D&A coverage by non-volume related revenue ratio was at 151% in Q1 2022, compared to 147% pro forma in Q1 2021.

Q1 2022 adjusted EBITDA

Underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation increased to €143.6 million, up +46.5%, primarily as a result of the consolidation of the costs from acquisitions, partially offset by continued cost control and delivery of planned synergies. On a like-for-like basis, underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation decreased by -1.1% compared to Q1 2021 reflecting maintained cost discipline. On a pro forma basis, underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation decreased by -2.2% compared to Q1 2021.

Consequently, adjusted EBITDA for the quarter increased to €252.2 million, up +66.8% compared to Q1 2021. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, Q1 2022 adjusted EBITDA grew +11.4% year on year. This represents an adjusted EBITDA margin of 63.7%, up +3.1 points compared to Q1 2021. On a like-for-like basis, adjusted EBITDA for Q1 2022 was up +12.0%, to €170.5 million, and adjusted EBITDA margin was 64.0%, up +2.9 points compared to the same perimeter in Q1 2021.

Q1 2022 net income, share of the parent company shareholders

Depreciation and amortisation accounted for €40.2 million in Q1 2022, up +151.4%, resulting mainly from the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group. PPA related to acquired businesses accounted for €21.0 million.

Adjusted operating profit was €233.7 million, a +65.0% increase compared to Q1 2021. On a like-for-like basis, adjusted operating profit was up +11.5% compared to Q1 2021, at €158.8 million. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, adjusted operating profit grew +11.2% year on year.

€27.3 million of non-recurring expenses, including depreciation and amortisation, were reported in Q1 2022, related to the integration of the Borsa Italiana Group, the implementation of the ‘Growth for Impact 2024’ strategic plan and the PPA of acquired businesses.

Net financing expense for Q1 2022 was €9.9 million compared to a net financing expense of €4.8 million in Q1 2021. This increase results from the costs of the issued debt in relation to the financing of the acquisition of the Borsa Italiana Group.

Results from equity investments amounted to €3.1 million in Q1 2022, solely reflecting the contribution from LCH SA, in which Euronext owns an 11.1% stake. As a reminder, in Q1 2021, Euronext reported €11.7 million of results from equity investments, resulting from an interim dividend received from Euroclear in addition to the contribution from LCH SA.

Income tax for Q1 2022 was €52.0 million. This translated into an effective tax rate of 26.1% for the quarter (Q1 2021: €37.2 million and 27.4% respectively) due to a one-off tax credit.

Share of non-controlling interests mainly relating to the Borsa Italiana Group and Nord Pool amounted to €3.8 million in Q1 2022.

As a result, the reported net income, share of the parent company shareholders, increased by +46.5% for Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021, to €143.8 million. This represents a reported EPS of €1.35 basic and €1.35 fully diluted in Q1 2022, compared to €1.29 basic and €1.29 fully diluted in Q1 2021. The number of shares used was 106,576,290 for the basic calculation and 106,825,873 for the fully diluted calculation.

Adjusted net income, share of the parent company shareholders was up +50.3% to €164.4 million. Adjusted EPS (basic) was up +7.3% in Q1 2022, at €1.54 per share, compared to an adjusted EPS (basic) of €1.44 per share in Q1 2021.

In Q1 2022, Euronext reported a net cash flow from operating activities of €368.6 million, compared to €185.9 million in Q1 2021, reflecting higher positive changes in working capital and the consolidation of the Borsa Italiana Group. Excluding the impact on working capital from Euronext Clearing (formerly CC&G) and Nord Pool CCP activities, net cash flow from operating activities accounted for 84% of adjusted EBITDA in Q1 2022.

  • Clearing

Clearing revenue was up +87.2% to €31.9 million in Q1 2022, as a result of the consolidation of Euronext Clearing (formerly CC&G) activities and higher revenue from LCH SA driven by increased derivatives volumes. Non-volume related clearing revenue (including membership fees, treasury income received from LCH SA) accounted for €9.4 million out of the total clearing revenue in Q1 2022.

Euronext clearing activities reflected an uplift in cleared volumes across most asset classes in a volatile market environment. In Q1 2022, Euronext Clearing revenues included €2.0 million from derivatives clearing, €4.9 million from equities clearing, and €2.3 million from bonds clearing.

On a like-for-like basis at constant currencies, clearing revenue was up +14.0% compared to Q1 2021. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, clearing revenue increased by +11.2% compared to Q1 2021.

  • Net treasury income

Net treasury income through the CCP business of Euronext Clearing (formerly CC&G) was €13.4 million in Q1 2022, primarily reflecting lower total spread on cash invested. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, net treasury income decreased -2.4% compared to Q1 202114.

  • Custody, Settlement and other Post-Trade activities

Revenue from Custody, Settlement and other Post-Trade activities, including the activities of Euronext Securities (Copenhagen, Milan, Oslo, Porto), was €63.9 million in Q1 2022, up +38.6% compared to Q1 2021, primarily resulting from the consolidation of Euronext Securities Milan and a greater number of accounts at Euronext Securities Oslo and Euronext Securities Copenhagen. 37,262,448 settlement instructions were processed in the first quarter of 2022 and assets under custody reached €6.4 trillion.

On a like-for-like basis at constant currencies, Custody, Settlement and other Post-Trade revenue was down -2.5% compared to Q1 2021. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, Custody, Settlement and other post trade revenue was stable compared to Q1 2021.

  • Euronext Technologies and Other revenue

Euronext Technologies and Other revenue was €23.1 million in Q1 2022, up +94.5% from Q1 2021 as a result of the consolidation of Borsa Italiana Group technology businesses.

Corporate highlights since publication of the 2021 Universal Registration Document on 1 April 2022

  • Convening of the Annual General Meeting of Euronext N.V.

On 5 April 2022, Euronext announced that the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will take place on Wednesday 18 May 2022 at 10:30 CEST at Euronext Amsterdam, Beursplein 5, 1012 JW Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

There will be a live broadcast of the AGM via:
https://channel.royalcast.com/landingpage/euronextwebcast/20220518_2/

The documentation is available at: www.euronext.com/investor-relations/shareholder-meetings

  • 2022 dividend calendar

In line with the dividend distribution policy of Euronext, it is proposed to distribute 50% of 2021 reported net profit. As a consequence and subject to the approval of shareholders at the Company’s Annual General Meeting to be held on 18 May 2022, the annual gross dividend on the 2021 results to be paid in 2022 amounts to €206.7 million, corresponding to a dividend per share of €1.93.

Payment of the annual dividend would then occur on:

  • Ex-dividend date: 23 May 2022

  • Record date: 24 May 2022

  • Payment date: 25 May 2022

  • S&P revises outlook on Euronext to ‘Positive’, affirms 'BBB' Rating

On 17 May 2022, S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook on Euronext to ‘Positive’ from ‘Stable’ and affirmed their 'BBB/A-2' ratings on Euronext.

  • Developments of the Ukraine crisis

Euronext does not own any entities in Russia, Belarus or Ukraine and the Group has a limited activity with clients and/or entities based in those countries. Similarly, the Group does not have critical vendors that are linked to Russia, Belarus or Ukraine. The impact of the crisis on business and vendor support is limited.

The Group is closely monitoring further developments and will continuously adapt its risk assessment to the current situation.

  • Core Data Centre migration update

Euronext announced in April 2021 the strategic decision to migrate its Core Data Centre from Basildon, in the United Kingdom, to Bergamo, in Italy.

The migration is a response to multiple factors, including the dynamic created by Brexit and a strong rationale to locate the Group’s Core Data Centre in a European Union country where Euronext operates a large business. This transformative move, managed in collaboration with clients, marks a milestone in bringing back to the European Union the data centre that handles 25% of European trading volumes.

This migration will allow Euronext to fully control and directly manage its core IT infrastructure, and provide clients with a key service that was previously outsourced. This will also allow the generation of colocation revenues, embedded in the upgraded synergies. Clients will benefit from a state-of-the-art colocation facility, and since this data centre is 100% powered by renewable energy sources, clients will see their own carbon footprints reduced. The date targeted for the first part of the Group Core Data Centre migration, as announced in November 2021, is 6 June 2022. The Core Data Centre migration has been timed in order to pave the way for the migration of the Borsa Italiana equity and derivatives markets onto Euronext Optiq® trading technology by mid-2023.

Euronext has successfully finalised the build phase of the Core Data Centre, which focused on setting up the production infrastructure (servers and networks) and the colocation room (client racks). Client connectivity has been implemented and is now operational. Optiq®, Euronext’s proprietary state-of-the-art technology, has also been successfully installed in Bergamo. The colocation and connectivity offerings have been designed and shared with clients. Euronext has rolled-out the client installation (equipment shipping, installation, and testing), which is almost finalised. The first successful tests connecting clients to the production environment in Bergamo confirmed the readiness for the upcoming migration in June 2022.

  • Progress on the pillars of Euronext’s ESG commitment

Euronext has advanced its “Fit for 1.5°” climate commitment with the launch of the OBX® ESG index in Norway and the AEX® ESG index in the Netherlands in May 2022, joining Euronext’s growing franchise of national blue-chip ESG indices. Beyond blue-chip ESG indices, Euronext has introduced a number of products tailored towards evolving business challenges, such as the Euronext French Employment 40 EW Index. The relevance of Euronext’s ESG index franchise has been recognised by Finance for Tomorrow, which identified Euronext as a leading contributor to the protection of biodiversity15 thanks to its biodiversity index solutions, such as the Euronext ESG Biodiversity Screened World Index.

In the first quarter of 2022, Euronext welcomed four new sustainability-linked bonds (SLBs) to its markets. L’Oréal, Carrefour, Sanofi and Pernod Ricard listed SLBs on Euronext Paris, which link coupon payments to the achievement of sustainability objectives.

As part of its ESG commitment, Euronext recognises the impact it can have on its partners and society at large. Euronext has therefore become a founding member of Sustainable Trading, a non-profit membership network that aims to drive the ESG transition across financial markets. Furthermore, Euronext published the “Euronext Guide for ESG reporting - Target 1.5°C”. This guide aims to help companies engage in climate change mitigation policies with the support of their investors.

Euronext has also joined forces with Climate Fresk to train its employees through climate workshops aimed at developing awareness and the ability to act at individual and company level. Euronext has already trained 200 employees across all European locations and is now rolling out the second phase of the project with the ambition to train 30% of its staff by the end of June 2022.

With the planned migration to its new Core Data Centre powered by renewable energy, much of which is self-produced, on 6 June 2022, Euronext expects to reach the next significant milestone of its ESG commitment in Q2 2022. Euronext will disclose its SBTi (Science-Based Targets initiative) targets in June 2022.

  • Strategic partnership agreement between Euronext Securities and Spafid on issuer services

On 3 March 2022, Euronext Securities Milan and Spafid announced the agreement of a strategic partnership whereby Euronext Securities Milan will acquire the General Meetings, Designated Representative, and Shareholder’s Register activities of Spafid, and Euronext Securities Milan and Spafid will establish a closer cooperation aimed at mutually supporting the development of their respective core businesses16.

The acquisition is an important step to further develop local added-value services to issuers, and to deliver on Euronext Securities’ ambition to converge issuers services across all its locations (Denmark, Norway, Portugal and Italy).

Euronext Securities is already providing similar services in Denmark and Norway, and this acquisition marks an important milestone of the Euronext ‘Growth for Impact 2024’ strategic plan, to pan-Europeanise and scale up Euronext Securities, and specifically to expand added-value services for financial institutions and issuers across all its locations. In Italy, the integration of these activities into Euronext Securities Milan allows clients to benefit from the comprehensive and end-to-end management of the entire shareholder process.

  • Disposal of Euronext Funds360

On 30 March 2022, Euronext completed the sale of Euronext Funds360 to FE fundinfo, a global provider of data and tools management for the funds industry. The disposal of Euronext Funds360 is not expected to have a material impact on Euronext revenue.

  • April 2022 Volumes

In April 2022, the average daily transaction value on the Euronext cash order book stood at €11,900 million, up +5.7% compared to the same period last year.

The overall average daily volume on Euronext derivatives stood at 759,707 contracts (-1.7% compared to April 2021) and the open interest was 30,335,960 contracts at the end of April 2022 (+12.3% compared to the end of April 2021).

Appendix

Adjustments in financial disclosure

To highlight its underlying performance, starting from Q1 2022, Euronext will publish underlying recurring costs, adjusted EBITDA and non-recurring costs.

Euronext will then remove the exceptional items line from its financial statements. Consequently, costs previously reported as exceptional items will from Q1 2022 be included into their respective lines within Euronext operating expenses as non-recurring items.

The €150 million of implementation costs to deliver on the ‘Growth for Impact 2024’ strategic plan targets are therefore considered as non-recurring items and will be withdrawn from Q1 2022 from underlying recurring costs.

From Q1 2022, the computation of adjusted net income and earnings per share will be adjusted accordingly. The computation of reported net income and earnings per share will not be impacted.

2024 strategic plan targets remain unchanged and are not affected by this change in reporting.

The new non-IFRS indicators are defined below.

Non-IFRS financial measures

For comparative purposes, the company provides unaudited non-IFRS measures including:

  • Operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation, underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation

  • EBITDA, EBITDA margin, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin

Non-IFRS measures are defined as follows:

  • Operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation as the total of salary and employee benefits, and other operational expenses

  • Underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation as the total of salary and employee benefits, and other operational expenses, excluding non-recurring costs

  • Adjusted operating profit as the operating profit adjusted for any non-underlying costs, including PPA of acquired businesses

  • EBITDA as the operating profit before depreciation and amortisation

  • Adjusted EBITDA as the adjusted operating profit before depreciation and amortisation adjusted for any non-underlying operational expenses excluding depreciation and amortisation

  • EBITDA margin as EBITDA divided by total revenue and income

  • Adjusted EBITDA margin as adjusted EBITDA, divided by total revenue and income

  • Adjusted net income, as the net income, share of the parent company shareholders, adjusted for any non-underlying items and related tax impact

Non-IFRS financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable IFRS measures and should be read only in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements.

Non-volume related revenue definition

Non-volume related revenue includes Listing excl. IPOs, Advanced Data Services, Custody Settlement and other post-trade, fixed revenue from the Clearing activities (including for instance NTI and membership fees), Investor Services, Technology Solutions, Other Income and Transitional Revenue.
