Performance analysis by segment:
ASSET MANAGEMENT (Q1: €25.9M, -8.5%)
The Software business was down 10.7%, with mixed performances depending on the market. Front office solutions continued to perform well (+1.5% on a like-for-like basis and -5.7% on a reported basis), with the increased roll-out of the new AMP platform. Conversely, applications for fund services were down sharply, due in particular to a fall in consulting activity.
The Services division posted a steady increase of 4.0% (13.7% at constant exchange rates) for the first three months of the year, demonstrating the strength of Linedata's strategy to develop co-sourcing offers for the middle office and risk functions for investment funds.
LENDING & LEASING (Q1: €11.9M, -0.1%)
First-quarter revenues for the Lending & Leasing segment were stable compared to the same period in 2020, but increased by 1.7% on a like-for-like basis. This solid performance was driven by strong sales from the new version of Linedata Capitalstream.
In 2021, while strengthening its sales teams and marketing investments, Linedata will leverage the successful renewal of all of its products as well as its robust business model to continue laying the groundwork for revenue growth.
