Commenting on the results, Temenos CEO Andreas Andreades said:

“I am very pleased with our strong performance in 2023, significantly exceeding all our guidance KPIs, which was made possible by the focus and determination of everyone at Temenos. This demonstrates our ability to execute and deliver growth despite macro uncertainty. The sales environment remained stable through Q4. We signed many notable deals in the quarter, including a number of tier 1 global banks that put their trust in Temenos as a strategic partner to support their future growth. Our European and American businesses performed particularly strongly. Our transition to a recurring revenue business model continues at pace, with our ARR reaching USD730m by year end, representing 84% of our product revenues.  This was driven by our subscription transition and the strong growth in our SaaS revenue. I was particularly pleased with the strong Free Cash Flow growth of 26% for FY-23, and with the headwind from the shift to subscription behind us I expect our Free Cash Flow to continue to grow strongly in the coming years.”
