Summary

 

The Schneider Electric Software Business delivered a solid financial performance in the six months ended 30 September 2017. Revenue increased by 4.0% to $288.5 million (2016 - $277.4 million) with no material impact from currency translation.  In both reported and constant currency terms, adjusted EBITA increased by 3.3% to $43.6 million from $42.2 million.

 

Approximately half of the increase in revenue was as a result of the implementation of the commercial agreements (as defined in the prospectus). This impact is expected to be largely factored by 1 January 2018.

 

The balance of the growth reflected underlying volume growth in HMI / SCADA licensing primarily in the APAC and EMEA regions, and an increase in the software maintenance and support revenue stream. Globally the business has seen volume pickup in areas of the portfolio that deliver operational visibility, efficiency improvements and asset reliability. Overall, revenue decreased in North America resulting from the levelling-off of SCADA upgrade and enhancement project volume seen over the past two years in the in the oil and gas pipelines market for the region.

 

Overall costs increased by 4.1%, which together with the growth in revenue resulted in a 3.3% increase in adjusted EBITA.
