Gregor Pottmeyer

The first quarter of 2022 was considerably above our expectations. All three growth components of our business, secular, cyclical and M&A net revenue growth, contributed equally to the extraordinarily good result. We are, therefore, currently expecting to exceed our guidance for the current financial year.

Deutsche Börse stated that it now expects to close the ongoing financial year with more than €3.8 billion in total revenue and an EBITDA of over €2.2 billion. The group closed 2021 with net revenue of €3.51 billion and an EBITDA of €2.04 billion, in comparison.
