First Derivatives registers 40.6% Y/Y jump in revenues in FY 2016


Financial technology provider First Derivatives plc (LON:FDP) has just posted its financial metrics for the full year to February 29, 2016, with revenues showing a solid rise from a year earlier thanks to strategic acquisitions and robust performance of software and consulting businesses.

In the year to February 29, 2016, First Derivatives registered an increase of £33.8 million (40.6%) in revenues, which reached £117 million, with organic growth of 27% and the remainder attributable to the strategic acquisitions made during the year. Consulting revenue rose by £16.7 million (28.6%) and software revenue rose by £17.1 million (68.7%).

The Group’s EBITDA margin increased to 19.9% for the period (2015: 18.6%) on the back of the greater proportion of higher margin software sales achieved in the period against consulting sales.

Adjusted profit after tax for the year was £12.9 million (2015: £8.7m), marking a growth of 48%.

First Derivatives kept investing in R&D, with £6.8 million (2015: £6.6m) of R&D spend capitalised during the year.

The company also noted the strategic acquisitions of Affinity Systems and ActivateClients enabling it to expand its software revenues beyond capital markets.
