Simcorp, which sells software and services to the financial sector, said it now expects 2014 revenue growth of 8 to 10 percent in local currencies and an operating profit margin of 24.5 percent in local currency terms.
It previously guided for 10 percent revenue growth and an operating profit margin of 24 percent.
