Moving to another segment, Deutsche Börse also saw its adjusted operating costs decline to $300.4 million (€275.5 million), down -5.6% YoY from $316.9 million (€290.6 million) in Q3 2015. The adjusted consolidated net profit over the same period rose to $207.9 million (€190.7 million) in Q3 2016, relative to $195.4 million (€179.2 million), or 6.4% YoY.
Basic earnings per share also orchestrated a slight rise YoY, which increased to $1.11 (€1.02) in Q3 2016, edging higher from $1.06 (€0.97) in Q3 2015, or 5.2% YoY. According to Gregor Pottmeyer, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Deutsche Börse AG, in a recent statement on the earnings: “During the third quarter, we were able to compensate for the weaker market environment through growth areas such as commodities and Clearstream’s international business and to increase net revenue overall.”
“Besides that, the continued implementation of structural efficiency measures contributed notably to the solid earnings growth. Based on the developments in the first nine months, we are confirming our earnings guidance for 2016,” he added.
