The European New Exchange Technology (Euronext) said it saw a 'solid quarter' in its financials for the second quarter of 2022.

The pan-European exchange group’s consolidated revenue and income for the period climbed 14% to €374.7 million when compared to its posting from the same period last year.

The group, which operates regulated markets in Belgium, France and Italy, among other countries, shared the 2022 second quarter financial results with Finance Magnates on Thursday.

During the first quarter of 2022, the exchange reported a 58.8% jump in its revenue and income. The figure came in at €395.7 million.

Euronext said its revenue growth in the last quarter was driven majorly by the “dynamic performance of non-volume related activities.”

Additionally, this growth was supported by a “strong performance from trading operations supported by volatile market conditions and solid revenue capture.”

Moreover, Euronext’s adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) climbed 12.3% quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) to €221.7 million.

“This represents an adjusted EBITDA margin of 59.2%, down -0.9 points compared to Q2 2021 due to ongoing strategic and integration costs. Pro forma the Borsa Italiana Group acquisition, Q2 2022 adjusted EBITDA was up +2.5% year-over-year,” Euronext explained.

Euronext's Forex Market

From its forex market, Euronext said it generated €7.3 million in forex trading revenue, which is a rise of 27.6% from the second quarter of 2021.

During the first quarter of 2022, the revenue came in at €7.2 million, which was higher than the €6.1 million for Q1 2021.

Meanwhile, the exchange saw a corresponding 27.6% jump in its average daily volume revenue from spot forex trading during the second quarter of 2022.

The revenue rose from $18,617 million in 2020 to $23,639 million last month.

Euronext explained, “Euronext FX trading volumes and revenue benefited from the continued positive momentum started in Q1 2022 with heightened volatility.

“Over the second quarter of 2022, average daily volumes of US$23.6 billion were recorded, up +27.0% compared to Q2 2021.

“On a like-for-like basis at constant currencies, FX trading revenue was up +12.8% in Q2 2022 compared to Q2 2021.”

In June, Euronext's spot forex trading remained flat in line with the industry trend.

The exchange reported a marginal increase of 0.2% in spot forex trading volume.

The volume came in at more than $510 billion. However, the jump was almost 20% when compared year-over-year.

Cash, Derivates & Fixed Income Markets

Similarly, Euronext recorded jumps in its cash, derivatives and fixed income activities.

After the first quarter, or in April, these markets crashed across the board on a month-over-month basis.

However, in Q2 2022, the cash trading revenue shot up 7.4% to €75.3 million as a result of “higher volumes due to sustained market volatility and solid revenue capture.”

Derivates trading jumped to €14.9 million, which is 14.3% growth from the same quarter last year.

Euronext attributed this growth to “strong traction of index derivatives in the volatile market environment combined with enhanced revenue capture.”

Furthermore, in the fixed income market revenue came in at €24.9 million in the second quarter, which is a 44% increase from €17.3 million posted in the same period last year.
