tick Trading Software AG: another record result confirmed / dividend proposal at €2.01 per share / resignation of Supervisory Board member Ingo Hillen

Annual financial statements for fiscal year 2019/2020

According to the audited annual financial statements, tick Trading Software AG (tick-TS AG) closed the 2019/2020 financial year (01.10.2019 - 30.09.2020) with a net profit of EUR 2,014 thousand (previous year: EUR 1,655 thousand) - thus achieving a record result for the third time in a row.

The ongoing Covid 19 pandemic has had a massive impact on social life and the global economy since spring 2020. The high volatility on the stock exchanges and the associated increase in trading activity since the 1st quarter of 2020 have led to increased revenue from load-based fees at tick-TS AG. Combined with the gain in license income, this results in revenues of EUR 7,324 thousand compared to the previous year's result. This corresponds to an increase of over 9% compared to the same period of the previous year (EUR 6,709 thousand).

The full annual report for the 2019/2020 financial year will be published on the tick-TS AG website at in February 2021.

Dividend proposal

For the Annual General Meeting expected to be held in April 2021, the Executive Board and Supervisory Board propose a dividend of EUR 2.01 per share after application of section 268 (8) of the German Commercial Code (HGB) (recognition of deferred tax assets).
