Commenting on the results, Temenos CEO David Arnott said:
"Q2 has been an excellent quarter on the back of a strong Q1, and the business continues to perform well across all KPIs. The level of sales activity has remained very high, particularly in Developed Markets, and we have seen banks across all tiers and segments commencing significant IT renovation projects. I am particularly pleased with the continued growth in revenues from Tier 1 and 2 clients, which demonstrates the scalability of the product and the traction we have with the world's largest banks.
We signed a number of highly strategic deals, most notably Standard Chartered Bank, Laurentian Bank and Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, and we continue to take market share in a growing market. The structural pressures of digitisation and cost focus mean banks are continuing to press ahead with upgrading their IT platforms. In particular, we have a win rate of nearly 100% in Wealth with multiple key deals signed in the last 18 months and have signed 2 of the largest Retail deals in the market in the last 12 months."
Commenting on the results, Temenos CFO and COO Max Chuard said:
"I am very pleased with our performance this quarter, with strong growth in both revenues and profitability. With strong levels of upfront license collection and good progress on a number of implementations, cash collection was exceptionally high in Q2. This was reflected in our DSOs, which ended the quarter at 130 days, a reduction of 46 days year-on-year. With record levels of revenue visibility for Q3 and FY 2016 and a very strong pipeline, we are confident in achieving the high end of our 2016 guidance."
