Fidessa group plc Provides Trading Platform to Banchile, According to BAC Report08 Feb 2013 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Recently Fidessa group plc announced that Chile’s third largest brokerage house Banchile had chosen Fidessa’s SaaS solution as its sell-side trading platform. This decision is a part of Banchile’s development strategy. With Fidessa Latin brokerage house will get access to extensive global connectivity network, world-class infrastructure and technology, and be able to satisfy all local market needs. Access to Fidessa’s global network will grant Chilean company vast opportunities for expansion - 3,200 buy-sides and 180 venues globally. Banchile will also utilize Fidessa’s trading tools to control its trading workflows.
Fidessa group is a good example of strategically developing company. It is improving its performance with every period. Thus, FY 2011 brought revenue increase by 6.1% to GBP 278.3 M, gross profit rise of 8.6% to GBP 188.6 M, operating and net income growth by 12.9% and 7.6%, respectively, to GBP 42.1 M and GBP 29.9 M. Interim results are also reflecting the upward trend. For the half-year ended June 2012 revenue comprised GBP 141.3 M, gross profit equaled GBP 70.2 M, operating income amounted to GBP 21.6 M, net income reached GBP 15.5 M.
The outlook for the company is, however, cautious. Problems at the financial markets bring pressure on the company’s business, and in the short term no improvement is anticipated. Growth for the financial year 2012 will be modest. Fidessa is planning to increase investments in infrastructure and expertise. Due to those investments, the company expects slight decline in its profit margins.
