Neuilly-sur-Seine, October 20, 2022 – Linedata (LIN:FP) reported revenue of €124.8m for the first nine months of 2022, reflecting organic growth of 3.4% over the same period of the previous year, driven by a strong performance of the Services component of the Asset Management business and the resilience of the Lending & Leasing business. In reported terms, growth was +9.8%, due to favorable USD exchange rates.
Recurring revenue to end of September 2022 was €98.9m (+€7.2m compared to the first nine months of 2021), representing 79% of total revenue. Non-recurring revenue was up €4.0m thanks, in particular, to significant growth in Services.
Bookings remain strong, at €42.0m, although 4.9% lower than the previous year due to the size of a major Lending & Leasing contract booked in 2021.
