Q2 2015 Operational Highlights & Outlook

  • Meaningful progress on specific larger deals, key milestones achieved in the quarter
  • Market conditions improving
  • Increased H2 revenue visibility following strong deal flow in Q2

Commenting on the results, Temenos CEO David Arnott said:

“This is an excellent performance. Our licence revenues grew strongly on the back of improving market conditions and very strong execution. We had a high win-rate across the board, and our European business in particular performed well. In addition, we continue to develop the US market opportunity, signing highly strategic deals with two of the top 35 US banks. In terms of larger deals, we are in an increasing number of discussions and have achieved several major milestones in the quarter.”

Profits and margins showed strong growth in the quarter owing to an improving sales mix and the improving profitability of our services business, which we continue to shift towards higher end consulting and training.

Looking at the balance of year, in view of the improving market conditions, specifically in Europe, and our increased revenue visibility, we remain confident that we will deliver our outlook.”

Commenting on the results, Temenos CFO Max Chuard said:

“Our Q2 non-IFRS results saw strong growth in total software license revenues of 56%, of which software licensing grew 26%. Our SaaS revenues increased materially to 24% of total software licensing, through a full quarter of contribution from our recent acquisitions. Our cash generation remains strong at well over our target of 100%, and DSOs are once again down materially both an absolute and proforma basis.”
