Capital expenditure supporting revenue growth was €11.9m in the quarter as euNetworks continues to invest for growth. This contributed to proxy cash flow of €(1.1)m in Q3 2016. “Sales continued to be strong through Q3 2016 after two record quarters,” said Brady Rafuse, Chief Executive Officer of euNetworks. “As previously noted, Q2 2016 performance has benefitted by some dual running euTrade services as a result of the move of a major trading exchange. Operating performance remained strong in Q3 2016 and on a constant currency basis, we have seen double-digit growth in recurring revenue this year. We continue to be pleased with our progress.” “Our capital expenditure was lower in Q3 2016 following the completion of network expansion projects to Marseille and Stockholm in Q2 2016. Further network investment projects are underway and are aligned with our customers’ bandwidth demands. We remain confident about the opportunities these bring us for further growth.”
