Neuilly-sur-Seine, 3rd February 2022 – Linedata (LIN:FP) realised full-year 2021 revenues of €160.2M, down 0.5% compared to 2020. Adjusted for unfavourable exchange rate movements, organic growth was +0.5%.
The recurring share of total revenue stood at 78%, reflecting a decline of one percentage point compared with a year earlier. Non-recurring revenue increased by €2M mainly in view of the sharp increase in consulting linked to clients migrating to the new platforms and growth of the Asset Management Services division.
With the increased contribution from new product versions in both segments, Linedata’s 2021 orders were up 7.1% compared with 2020, to a total of €59.4M.

Software revenue was €88.4M, down 4.6%. It was impacted by a decline in revenue in the fund servicing segment which was not offset by additional revenue from migrations to the new AMP platform.
The Services division enjoyed strong momentum in 2021 with revenue of €19.4M up 14.2%. New offerings targeting Hedge Funds, facilitating the outsourcing of some of their support functions, enabled Gravitas and QRMO to increase growth.

LENDING & LEASING (Q1: €11.9M, -0.1%; Q2: €12.5M, +12.1%; Q3: €12.6M, +13.5%; Q4: €15.5M, -10.5%)
The Lending & Leasing activity, posting €52.4M, enjoyed growth of 2.0% in 2021. The division benefited from revenue generated by numerous migration projects of the installed base to the Linedata Ekip360 platform.
The fourth quarter, delivered the best performance of 2021, although this was down 10.5% compared with the same quarter of the previous year due to a large perpetual licence that was recognised for a new client in the last quarter of 2020.
