Six multiplied its profit by more than two in 2022, up to 186.5 million euros


Six, operator of the Swiss and Spanish stock markets, obtained in 2022 a net profit of 185 million Swiss francs (186.5 million euros), a figure that multiplies by more than two (151.5%) its profits in 2021, according to The company reported this Thursday, specifying that last year was the second consecutive year in which Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (BME) fully contributed to its results.

Six's operating income amounted to 1,494.1 million Swiss francs in 2022 (about 1,506 million euros), 0.3% less than in 2021, while profit before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda ) totaled 397.7 million Swiss francs (401 million euros), which represents a decrease of 5.7% compared to 2021.

For its part, profit before interest and taxes (Ebit) increased by 65.7% in 2022, to 243.9 million Swiss francs (245.9 million euros). The stock market operator has explained that this rise in its Ebit was mainly due to "an isolated effect" in 2021 related to its participation in Worldline.

Specifically, Six has indicated that its share of the profits and losses of associated and joint ventures was impaired in 2021 by the sale of Worldline's TSS business. Thus, compared to a negative result in this item of 102.1 million Swiss francs (-103 million euros) in 2021, Six achieved a positive result of 21.6 million francs (21.7 million euros) in 2022. .

Jos Dijsselhof, CEO of Six, has highlighted that the company obtained "solid results" in 2022 despite the difficult market conditions, with growth in most of its business lines at a constant exchange rate.

During 2022, Six added a total of 14 new companies to the Swiss Stock Exchange and in Spain, through BME, it added 18 new companies: 15 on BME Growth, one on the Latibex and two on the main market.

In accordance with the group's dividend policy, for 2022 the board of directors of Six will propose to the annual general meeting an ordinary dividend, charged to the results of 2022, of 5.10 Swiss francs per share (5.14 euros). , an amount 7.4% higher than that of the 2021 financial year.

In the medium term, the stock market operator expects an increase in revenue of more than 4% per year, driven by specialized initiatives and digital assets, by revenue synergies from the acquisition of BME and by the growth derived from the 'Financial Information' business unit. '.
