March 11, 2019

Euroclear has today reported results for the year ending December 31 2018

It identifies the following as financial highlights.

Operating income increased 9 percent, compared to FY 2017, to EUR 1,335 million.

Business Income rose 4 percent to EUR 1,079 million as our open architecture model and strategic initiatives captured the benefit of positive market conditions.

Banking and other income increased by 39 percent to EUR 256 million, boosted by higher US interest rates.

Operating costs were broadly stable at EUR 814 million as continued investment in our customer proposition and regulatory-driven initiatives were offset by tight control of costs.

Net profit was up 36 percent to EUR 322 million.

EPS was up 21 percent to EUR 102.3 per share, compared to EUR 84.6 per share in 2017.

Board indicates an interim dividend of EUR 55 per share. Dividend expected to be paid in fourth quarter 2019 as a consequence of successful corporate reorganization.

It highlights the following as key operating metrics.

Record number of netted transactions settled in the Euroclear group equivalent to EUR 791 trillion by value, an increase of 8 percent compared to 2017, and approximately 10x global GDP.

The average value of securities held on behalf of Euroclear clients continued to grow in 2018 to EUR 28.8 trillion compared to EUR 28.4 trillion in 2017.
