Financial guidance 2020:
SimCorp maintains its expectations for revenue growth and EBIT margin measured in local currencies for 2020 as announced in its Q2 interim report and company an-nouncement dated October 12, 2020.
Revenue growth measured in local currencies is expected to be between -5% and 5%, and the expectation for EBIT margin measured in local currencies is between 22.0% and 27.0%.
Approximately 1.5%-points (previously 2%-point) of the expected revenue growth is re-lated to the acquisition of AIM Software, and the acquisition is expected to impact the EBIT margin negatively by approximately 1%-point, implying an expected organic reve-nue growth of between -6.5% and 3.5% (previously between -7% and 3%) and an EBIT margin of between 23.0% to 28.0%.
Klaus Holse, SimCorp CEO comments: 'With a total of ten new clients in the first nine months of the year, our win rate has been satisfactory despite the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. A strong focus on building strategic partnerships, most recently with State Street, a highly loyal client base, and not least a deeply committed team make me confident that we are well positioned for closing the year on a strong note.'
