NEX Group Recent Financial Annual Results
Finance Magnates reported in June that NEX Group, a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of CME Group, unveiled its annual financials for 2020, ending on December 31, highlighting some substantial losses. It made a loss of $1.9 million in the year, coming down from a profit of $557,000 generated in 2019.
Though the company generated significantly higher income, massive administrative costs have sunk it into losses. The company spent $3.1 million on its administrative costs, compared to only $99,000 in the previous year. Furthermore, the balance sheet of the company shows that the net assets held by the company declined from $92.66 million in 2019 to $90.7 million in 2020.
