The German stock exchange operator reported a net profit of 204.3 million euros ($238.7 million), up from EUR170 million the same period a year earlier.

Net revenue rose to EUR576 million from EUR558.5 million a year ago.

Deutsche Boerse said it was unlikely to meet its earnings guidance for the full year. In March, it targeted a 10% to 15% rise in net profit. In July, the company said it considered it possible to achieve the lower end of that forecast.

The company still expects to meet the 10%-to-15% earnings growth target in 2018 and 2019, it said.
