Trading Update

Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC ("Euromoney" or the "Group"), the global B2B information services provider of price discovery, essential market intelligence and events, today announces a trading update in respect of the year ending 30 September 2021.

Adjusted profit before tax for the full year ending 30 September 2021 is expected to be significantly ahead of analysts' expectations(1) before the impact of IAS 38.

This reflects continuing strong growth in subscriptions in Pricing, Data & Market Intelligence, especially People Intelligence, and the continuing turnaround in Asset Management. In events, we have performed in line with our expectations at Q3. Other revenues, which includes research and thought leadership, also continued to perform strongly.

Euromoney's financial position remains strong. Net cash at the end of August 2021 was GBP34.7m.

Following recent new guidance on IAS 38, the Group is reviewing its policy on accounting for software as a service-related IT development. We expect this to result in an additional c.GBP4m charge to the income statement in FY 2021 as certain software costs can no longer be capitalised as intangible assets and amortised.

We have continued to build momentum in FY 2021 underpinned by the strength of our subscriptions performance. While the timing of the recovery in physical events remains uncertain, we are making good progress towards being a fast-growing, high-margin, 3.0, information-services subscription business.

We will provide a more detailed update at Euromoney's full year results which will be announced on 18 November 2021.

This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (EU) 596/2014.
