Having generated revenue of c. € 23 million in 2016 and presenting a strong financial profile with OMDA margin materially above Worldline’s OMDA, FDB currently employs c.200 employees and is the leading financial processor in the Baltics, providing to the main Baltic banking groups and also to some banks in the wider Nordic region, a large range of outsourcing services.
