Commenting on the results, Temenos CEO Andreas Andreades said, âI am delighted to announce this record set of results. In 2010, we achieved like for like licence growth of 19%, reflecting both a continued recovery in the demand for core banking systems and also continued market share gains.
Despite integrating two acquisitions and the transition to a partner strategy, we generated strong margin expansion and profit growth. Cash generation was also extremely strong, exceeding again our public target, as we continue to mature our delivery model.
The prospects for 2011 are very exciting. We believe spending on modern, externally developed core systems will continue to grow as banks worldwide become more convinced that the appropriate technological platform is a prerequisite for sustainable growth and vendors are able to demonstrate more conclusively that this is indeed the case.
Furthermore, Temenos benefits from a number of company-specific drivers that we believe will see us continue to grow faster than the overall market. Our partner programme, which fundamentally changes our delivery model, acts as an additional sales channel and extends our technological deployment options, also helps us to underpin our leadership through the establishment of an ever-growing ecosystem of trained consultants and collaborators. In addition, our product extensions allow us to continue to extend the breadth and value of new deals and also to increase wallet share with existing customers, while our M&A strategy helps us to build the scale to continue
accelerating product and sales investment.â
