Software AG Publishes Q3 Financial Figures and Confirms 2016 Outlook

 

Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today announced its preliminary financial figures (IFRS, preliminary) for the third quarter of 2016. Once again, Software AG successfully improved the market relevance of its largest business line, the Digital Business Platform (DBP). New strategic partnerships with companies have significantly expanded Software AG’s customer base in the high-growth Internet of Things (IoT) market. Due to the short-term slippage of substantial strategic deals from the third quarter into the first days of the fourth quarter, these deals will be included into the sales success (sales performance pro forma). Taking into account these strategic partnerships and current business transactions until 11 October 2016, total revenue for the DBP segment was up by 7 percent compared to last year’s figure for the same period. The Adabas & Natural (A&N) business line developed as expected after an exceptionally strong first half of fiscal 2016. The very high level of customer loyalty drove A&N maintenance revenues up by 1 percent. And, furthermore, as a result of the growing market relevance of the DBP segment, Software AG’s Consulting segment result expanded by 16 percent. The company’s operating profit margin (EBITA, non-IFRS) climbed 1.2 percentage points year-on-year to 33.7 percent to an annual high. Software AG’s free cash flow for the first 9 months of the current fiscal year achieved a new record high, up more than 10 percent compared to 2015. Given the growing relevance in key markets, increasing maintenance revenues and a strong project pipeline, Software AG confirms its outlook for fiscal 2016.
