SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JTC Group, an award-winning provider of fund, corporate and private client services to institutional and private clients, announced its 2020 full year results. The London Stock Exchange listed public company reported a 15.9% increase in total revenue to £115.1 million and a 9.4% rise in underlying EBITDA to £38.7 million, with an underlying EBITDA margin of 33.6%.
The rise in revenue was achieved from a combination of net organic growth and growth from acquisitions, of 7.9% and 8.0% respectively. One such acquisition was NES Financial, which is now known as NES Financial | JTC, and a leader in specialty financial administration based in Silicon Valley.
“NES Financial | JTC is the embodiment of JTC’s expanding global reach, experienced management, and cutting-edge in-house technology capabilities,” said Michael Halloran, Group Holdings board member, head of Technology & Strategy, and CEO of NES Financial | JTC. “As NES Financial | JTC continues to build upon its impressive footing in the high-growth US funds services market and ESG-related services, we expect to contribute to JTC Group’s strong results for years to come.”
The results were in line with JTC’s medium term market guidance of 8% – 10% net organic revenue growth and a 33% – 38% underlying EBITDA margin, which management considers represent appropriate indicators of sustainable high performance in the company’s sector. What’s more, the performance was strong across both divisions of the Group: Institutional Client Services reported revenue up 17.8% and Private Client Services reported revenue up 13.7%.
JTC’s new business wins increased by 20.1% and its new business pipeline was up by 49.7%, supporting a positive outlook for 2021. The total dividend per share for 2020 is 6.75 pence, an increase of 27.4% compared with the previous year.
