CME Group Inc. Reports Third-Quarter 2022 Financial Results

CHICAGO, Oct. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CME Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CME) today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2022.

The company reported revenue of $1.2 billion and operating income of $739 million for the third quarter of 2022. Net income was $680 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.87. On an adjusted basis, net income was $719 million and diluted earnings per share were $1.98. Financial results presented on an adjusted basis for the third quarter of 2022 and 2021 exclude certain items, which are detailed in the reconciliation of non-GAAP results.1

"Our strong Q3 financial performance was driven by a 26% increase in trading volume, generating double-digit growth in total revenue," said CME Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Terry Duffy. "During the quarter, year-over-year volume rose in five of our six asset classes, led by interest rates, equity indexes and a near-record quarter for foreign exchange. Likewise, the demand for our products remains strong, with year-to-date volumes up 22%, as clients continue to manage risk amid global economic and geopolitical uncertainty."

Third-quarter 2022 average daily volume (ADV) was 22.4 million contracts, including non-U.S. ADV of 6.1 million contracts, led by 41% growth in Asia, 31% in Latin America, and 14% in EMEA.

1. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial results mentioned to the respective GAAP figures can be found within the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Measures chart at the end of the financial statements and earnings presentation materials.

Clearing and transaction fees revenue for third-quarter 2022 totaled $1.0 billion. The total average rate per contract was $0.631. Market data revenue totaled $154 million for third-quarter 2022.

As of September 30, 2022, the company had approximately $2.2 billion in cash (including $100 million deposited with Fixed Income Clearing Corporation (FICC) and included in other current assets) and $3.4 billion of debt. The company paid dividends during the third quarter of approximately $363 million. The company has returned over $18.8 billion to shareholders in the form of dividends since the implementation of the variable dividend policy in early 2012.
