Barloworld Ld (BWO) - Full Year Results 2012 RNS Number : 4144R Barloworld Ld 19 November 2012 Barloworld Limited Barloworld Limited (Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa) (Registration number 1918/000095/06) (Income Tax Registration number 9000/051/71/5) (Share code: BAW) (JSE ISIN: ZAE000026639) (Share code: BAWP) (JSE ISIN: ZAE000026647) (Bond issuer code: BIBAW) ("Barloworld" or "the Company") Audited results for the year ended 30 September 2012 Salient features Revenue up 18% to R58.6 billion Operating profit up 31% to R2 988 million Profit before exceptional items up 38% to R2 119 million HEPS up 46% to 680 cents (2011: 465 cents) Return on net operating assets 18.8% (2011: 17.1%) Total dividend of 230 cents per share up 48% Acquired Bucyrus mining distribution businesses in southern Africa for R1 381 million Disposed of Handling US and UK businesses for approximately R1 091 million Clive Thomson, CEO of Barloworld, said: The group delivered a very pleasing result for 2012 with operating profits up 31% and HEPS increasing by 46%. Our Equipment businesses in southern Africa and Russia achieved record mining deliveries and Automotive and Logistics delivered strong results in all trading segments. We also concluded a number of important strategic transactions. The most significant was the acquisition of the Bucyrus distribution businesses in southern Africa for R1.4 billion which now provides us with the most complete mining equipment product range in the industry. Importantly, we finalised the disposals of our materials handling businesses in the US and UK for R1.1 billion, which continues our redeployment of capital into higher returning opportunities. There is more uncertainty in the global and local economy for the year ahead which has led to some deferment in mining capital expenditure plans. This will impact equipment demand and deliveries but overall we expect the group to continue to make solid progress across most of our businesses. 19 November 2012 Chairman and Chief Executive's report OVERVIEW The world economy remains subject to a number of economic and geopolitical headwinds which are creating uncertainty for business. Europe appears to be re-entering recession and slowing economic growth in China has impacted commodity prices and levels of mining investment. In South Africa, economic growth is being impacted by the aftermath of the Marikana tragedy including escalating labour disputes, credit downgrades and faltering foreign and domestic investment. Against this backdrop the group has delivered a very strong result for the 2012 financial year. Operating profit of R2 988 million is 31% up, net profit is up 51% and headline earnings per share of 680 cents is 46% above last year. The total dividend for the year of 230 cents is 48% up on the prior year. STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS We had a busy year pursuing various strategic initiatives which position the business for future growth and continue the process of redeploying capital into higher return opportunities. We acquired the distribution businesses of Bucyrus Africa and Eqstra Mining Services in southern Africa for $164million (R1 381 million), which provides us with the most extensive surface and underground mining product range in the industry. In November we signed an agreement to acquire the Bucyrus distribution and support business based in Novokuznetsk, Russia for $50 million (R436 million) and expect the transaction to close on 3 December 2012. We have reached agreement with our partners to extend the original 10 year 50:50 joint venture in Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo by a further 50 years and are in the process of finalising legal arrangements. We entered into agreements with Caterpillar subsidiaries Progress Rail Services and Electromotive Diesel (EMD) to form the EMD Africa joint venture to capture locomotive and rail services opportunities across southern Africa. Following the Caterpillar acquisition of gas engine manufacturer MWM, we were awarded MWM distribution rights in our southern African and Russian dealership territories. This will enable us to capture the growing gas engine opportunities in our power business. A number of niche acquisitions were made in our Automotive division during the year including Avis Coach Charter and a fuel management company. Together with the Maponya family, we opened the Soweto Toyota and Soweto Volkswagen dealerships in Gauteng. We acquired the remaining 50% of Phakisaworld servicing the National Department of Transport contract in South Africa and secured the entry of Avis Fleet Services into Ghana. By integrating our Logistics business into the Automotive division we were able to leverage synergies and improve the financial performance of our logistics business. The acquisition of a specialised chemical transporter, formation of a joint venture with Manline and the purchase of the 25% minority in Logistics Africa, position this business to continue on its aggressive growth path. In our Handling division, we successfully concluded the disposal of our US business to Briggs and Lift One for $60million (R465 million) and also disposed of our Handling UK business to Briggs realising £47 million (R626million) in gross proceeds. In line with an agreed expansion roadmap with our principal AGCO we have established agriculture businesses in Siberia, Western Russia and Mozambique. OPERATIONAL REVIEW Equipment Southern Africa Operating profits were up 25% as the commodity cycle reached a highpoint during the current year, driven by demand from China. Equipment demand from mining and contract mining customers grew strongly and we won the majority share of contract awards. Revenue for the year of R16.3 billion is 30% ahead of last year which in turn was 50% up on the 2010 level. Deliveries of large mining units increased by 19%, ensuring that 2012 represents the best year for mining ever achieved in southern Africa. South Africa continues to be the major source of revenue for the region (64% of total) followed by Zambia, Botswana, Mozambique and Angola. The construction business continued to show growth in South Africa but more so in Angola where government spending on infrastructure has accelerated. Activity in the Bartrac joint venture operation in the Katanga province of the DRC was extremely strong in the year. Our share of the after tax income from this associate company of R138 million was 120% up on 2011. Iberia Both the Spanish and the Portuguese economies are now back in recession and forecast to remain there until 2014. The wide ranging austerity measures implemented by the Spanish government to reduce the fiscal deficit impacted many facets of our traditional business. Revenue for the year was 8% above the prior year mainly on the back of low margin export sales to large customers in Spain and Portugal for contract work outside of Iberia. The power business also acted somewhat as a buffer against weakness in the construction sector. Further restructuring was necessary as the underlying Spanish market declined by 35% in the current year off an already low base. The total restructuring cost of €8.6 million in Spain and €1.1 million in Portugal significantly contributed to the current year operating loss of €13.4 million. Russia Russia achieved an excellent result with operating profit for the year of $43 million increasing by 31% on the back of a 28% increase in revenue to $471 million. This was supported by good growth in machine sales to the mining segment which represents 45% of the total revenue mix. The major demand for machines came from gold, coal, nickel and diamond mining. The Power businesses demonstrated strong growth with installations in a number of diverse electric power and cogeneration applications. The after sales business again contributed more than 25% of total revenue which supported an improved operating margin of 9.1%. Automotive and Logistics The division produced a record operating profit of R1 152 million which was 26% up on the prior year. This profit growth was particularly pleasing in that revenue only increased by 12% to R29.5 billion. Car Rental Rental days grew by 11% assisted by improved demand from all market segments. The all-important rate per day increased by 3% despite strong competitive pressures and a further improved fleet utilisation to 76% remains well ahead of the industry average. Motor retail In South Africa, new vehicle sales for the calendar year to September 2012 were approximately 10% above the previous year, supported by low prevailing interest rates and benign new vehicle inflation. Revenue grew by 8%, while operating profit increased by 26% to R352 million and operating margin improved to 2.3%. Australian new vehicle sales for the calendar year to September increased by 9%. In local currency, revenue increased by 13%, while operating profit improved by 9%, driven by strong performances in our Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen dealerships. Avis Fleet Services Revenue for the year increased by 29% generating an operating profit of R349 million which was 23% up on the previous year. Total fleet under management grew by 17%. During the year fleet services took over the interim management of the City of Johannesburg contract, with the main contract likely to be finalised and implemented early in the new financial year. Logistics The recovery in the logistics business continued during the current year. Revenue was in line with the prior year, however with a pleasing improvement in operating profit. The supply chain management operations increased margins from improved volumes and supported by higher gain shares earned. Dedicated transport services increased total kilometres travelled by 16% while achieving efficiency and maintenance cost savings. The freight management and services business continued to face difficult trading conditions. Handling The divisional result has been impacted by the sale of the US handling business in April 2012 and the sale of the UK handling business at the end of September. Revenue from the division of £379 million was £44 million below the prior year but showed good growth in Belgium and Agriculture. Operating profit of £3 million was well down on the prior year figure of £6.3 million but was impacted by losses in the US and UK handling operations linked to the disposal and by start-up losses in the Agriculture businesses in Russia as well as adverse currency impacts in South Africa. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSFORMATION Improving safety statistics reflect our determination to ensure a safe and healthy work environment. Tragically a road accident resulted in one work-related fatality in the newly acquired Bucyrus business. We continue to make progress in the area of Empowerment and Transformation and the group B-BBEE rating of Level 2 was retained. Changes in the dti's B-BBEE scorecard include increased performance thresholds and these will receive attention in the year ahead. Progress is being made against our aspirational non-renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions efficiency improvement targets. Water stewardship initiatives resulted in increased recycling activities and more efficient consumption patterns. Stakeholder engagement underpins our value creation activities and commitment in this regard is evidenced by executive director responsibility at board level. DIRECTORATE Mr J Njeke and Advocate SAM Baqwa resigned from the board on 29 February 2012 and 10 May 2012 respectively and we would like to thank them for their valuable contribution. The diversity of the board was enhanced by the appointment of Ms Babalwa Ngonyama and Ms Neo Dongwana as non-executive directors with effect from 1 May 2012. In addition, Ms Ngonyama was appointed to the audit committee with effect from 1 May 2012 subject to approval by shareholders at the annual general meeting. OUTLOOK Economic growth in China has moderated during the course of the past year with a concomitant impact on the demand for, and prices of, commodities. While economic growth now appears to have stabilised, we have seen a slowing of our mining order intake particularly from contract miners since March 2012. This is reflected in a reduced firm order book in Equipment southern Africa which at September stands at R3.9 billion (excluding Bucyrus) compared to R5.2 billion at September last year. If one includes the orders for the legacy Bucyrus product range our total order book now stands at R5.3 billion. The impact of the current wave of strike actions in the South African mining industry is likely to impact new investment adversely. This is expected to be partly mitigated by on-going projects elsewhere in southern Africa. Overall we expect reduced mining deliveries into 2013 although there are some signs of a modest improvement in construction activity and aftermarket revenues should hold up well. In Iberia, while certain of the announced package deal orders have been cancelled following suspension of government subsidies to Spanish miners, a number of machines will still be delivered in the upcoming year. The Iberian order book is currently dominated by Power systems projects particularly in the Marine segment. The restructuring executed over the last few years in Spain has significantly reduced our cost base and will contribute to an expected improvement in the year ahead. The outlook for Russia is dominated by mining. The firm order book at September of $77 million is up on September 2011 levels. This, together with a number of major mining projects currently under discussion and the Bucyrus order book to be acquired when the transaction closes, should ensure another solid performance nextyear. The growth outlook for vehicle sales in South Africa in 2013 has been tempered by the recent reduction in economic growth estimates, together with a weakening of the currency, which will impact vehicle pricing. The local consumer faces increased inflationary pressure and we are consequently forecasting single digit vehicle growth next year. Our car rental business will continue to face competitive market conditions and our fleet services business is currently evaluating a number of opportunities which should ensure sustained growth and profitability. We expect the positive momentum in the logistics business to continue and the business is well positioned for growth. In our Handling division the outlook for agriculture remains mixed. On the positive side, the impact of the droughts experienced in SA and Russia, are likely to increase prices for commodities which should stimulate demand for agricultural equipment. There is more uncertainty in the global and local economy for the year ahead which has led to some deferment in mining capital expenditure plans. This will impact equipment demand and deliveries but overall we expect the group to continue to make solid progress across most of our businesses. DB Ntsebeza CB Thomson Chairman Chief Executive Group financial review Revenue for the year increased by 18% to R58.6 billion. Improved trading conditions particularly in the mining sector resulted in 30% and 49% increases in revenue earned in Equipment southern Africa and Russia, respectively. Earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) increased by 23% to R4 905 million and operating profit rose by 31% to R2 988 million. Operating profit in Equipment southern Africa increased by 25% to R1 535 million. This result is notable in that it exceeds the record operating profits reported in 2008, immediately preceding the global financial crisis. The Russian equipment business delivered an excellent result, contributing R344 million ($43 million), up by 52% on last year, to the group's operating profit. Equipment Iberia incurred a loss as demand continued to decline in Spain and Portugal as the respective governments grappled with their debt and infrastructure spending remained constrained. The Automotive and Logistics division performed well in a competitive trading environment, increasing revenue by 12% and operating profit by 26% to a record R1 152 million for the year. The Handling division recorded reduced profits in difficult trading conditions in certain regions. This was compounded by the disruption and costs incurred with the sale of the US and UK handling businesses in April and September 2012 respectively. Redundancy and restructuring charges of R102 million were incurred this year (2011: R73 million), principally in Spain. The increase in the company's share price since September 2011 resulted in an increased charge of R25 million in respect of the provision required for cash-settled Share Appreciation Rights previously awarded to employees (2011: R33 million). A change in the statutory measure of inflation for the UK pensioner increases reduced the company's pension fund liability in the year giving rise to a once-off benefit to operating profit of R74million (£6.1 million). The total negative fair value adjustments on financial instruments of R93 million (2011: R65 million) mainly comprised the cost of forward points in foreign exchange contracts in Equipment southern Africa. Finance costs increased by R72 million to R827 million mainly owing to higher average debt. Additional interest charges of R23 million were incurred on the debt to fund the acquisition of the Bucyrus businesses for the last three months of the year. Exceptional gains of R190 million mainly comprise net gains arising from the disposals of the Handling businesses in the US and UK (R500 million) including realised foreign currency translation gains of R593 million, profits on disposals of properties (R9 million), reduced by impairments of goodwill in equipment Iberia (R213 million) and Logistics Middle East (R142 million). Taxation, before Secondary Tax on Companies (STC), increased by 39% to R789 million. The charge includes the impairment of the deferred tax asset in Handling USA (R61 million) and the partial impairment of the deferred tax asset in Spain (R41 million). The effective taxation rate (excluding STC, prior year taxation and taxation on exceptional items) was 32.7% (2011: 34.2%). The effective rate is lower than last year mainly owing to increased profits earned in lower taxed jurisdictions. Unrelieved tax losses in Spain increased the effective tax rate by 3.0% (2011: 3.0%). Income from associates almost doubled to R141 million (2011: R71 million) owing to a substantially increased contribution from the Bartrac equipment joint venture in the DRC. The non-controlling interest in the current year's earnings includes R27 million representing the dividends paid to the holders of 14 485 013 ordinary shares in terms of the BEE transaction concluded in 2008. These shares are not included in issued shares for purposes of calculating headline earnings per share (HEPS). HEPS increased by 46% to 680 cents (2011: 465 cents). Cash flow and debt Working capital increased by R3.1 billion to support the growth in revenue, particularly in Equipment southern Africa and Russia. This resulted in a net outflow of funds this year of R2.9 billion (2011: R0.9 billion inflow). A total of R1.4 billion ($164 million) was outlayed to acquire the Bucyrus businesses in southern Africa. The disposals of the handling businesses in the US and UK realised gross proceeds of R465 million and R626 million, respectively. Total assets employed in the group increased by R4 878 million to R35 810 million. The increase was driven by the acquisition of the Bucyrus businesses (R1 381 million) and increased inventories and trade receivables (R3319million), which were up by 26%. The disposals of the handling businesses reduced assets by R1 424 million. Total interest bearing debt at 30 September 2012 increased to R10 088 million (2011: R7 243 million). Cash and cash equivalents amounted to R2 624 million (2011: R2 754 million). Net interest bearing debt at 30 September 2012 of R7 464 million (2011: R4 489 million) was R592 million lower than at March 2012 despite the acquisition of Bucyrus. The group's funding maturity profile is well-balanced with only 6% of long-term debt maturing next year and a further 28% in 2014. Long-term debt raised during the year included three corporate bonds totalling R1 759 million (BAW12 to 14). The funds raised were utilised to pay for the South African tranche of the Bucyrus transactions and to fund growth in working capital. The long-term debt maturity profile at 30 September 2012 was 70% (2011:76%).

The CP market has remained liquid during the current year with spreads narrowing and we expect to maintain our participation in this market. The company has unutilised debt facilities with domestic banks totalling R3 297 million at 30 September 2012. The offshore facilities include five bilateral loans totalling £100 million (R1 332 million) which were undrawn at 30 September 2012. Other offshore unutilised bank lines amounted to the equivalent of R1 794 million. Debt in the three segments utilised in the group for gearing purposes are as follows: Total debt to equity (%) Trading Leasing Car rental Group debt Group net debt Target range 30 - 50 600 - 800 200 - 300 Ratio at 30 September 50 472 217 77 57 2012 Ratio at 30 September 30 577 196 57 36 2011 Going forward The group achieved a return on net operating assets (excluding goodwill) of 18.8% in the current year. This was up on the 17.1% achieved last year. The group continues to focus on improving the return and the disposal of underperforming assets this year, together with an expected improvement in the Equipment Iberia performance, should contribute to a further increase next year.

The profit was boosted by increased demand for mining machinery and associated parts and services in South Africa, Zambia and Botswana. Approval for the Bucyrus transaction was granted by the South African competition authorities on 27 June 2012 and we commenced sales and support of the legacy Bucyrus range of opencast and underground mining machines in all our southern African territories on 2 July 2012. A softening in the commodity cycle led by the slowdown in Chinese domestic growth and uncertainty in the South African mining sector, started to impact our mining operations in mid-2012. The last three months of the financial year saw several mining houses announce plans to defer or curtail project investment. Accordingly, the firm order book in southern Africa, excluding Bucyrus is lower at R3.9 billion compared to R5.2 billion at 30 September 2011. The Joint Venture with Tractafric produced an excellent result, with the Equipment equity accounted share of the profits more than doubling from R63 million to R138 million. The term of the JV agreement, which was scheduled to terminate in 2017, has been extended by 50 years from October 2012. Iberia continued to trade amidst rising economic and political turmoil in the Eurozone leading to further reductions in the new machines market. The delivery of large mining equipment packages in Spain were hampered following the Spanish government's decision to cut subsidies to the mining sector resulting in the cancellation of a portion of mining equipment orders. However, the Iberian business maintained their position as market leader, with management focusing on available market opportunities, maintaining a strong control over costs, asset efficiency and cash flows. Staff reductions at a cost of €9.7 million were implemented during the year to further align the cost base to prevailing activity levels and will position the business for an expected improvement next year. Barloworld Global Power continued to gain traction with focus on the recruitment of specialised resources to further the development of the group´s capabilities in the various power market segments. Favourable conditions in the mining and power segments in our Russian territory enabled Equipment Russia to achieve record revenues and operating profits. Total customer firm orders amounted to $77 million (2011: $70million) and the outlook for 2013 remains positive with a high level of activity coming from customers operating in the gold industry. In November Barloworld announced the acquisition of the Bucyrus distribution business for the Siberian and Russian Far East territories which will bolster revenues in the year ahead. Growth in skilled people and expanding our branch infrastructure throughout Siberia and the Russian Far East remain strategic priorities to ensure sustainable growth.

The operating margin improved to 3.9% from 3.4% in the prior year. The division generated good positive operating cash flow, which was reinvested into leasing and rental assets. Growing revenue by 12% improved the overall operating profit by 26%. Avis Rent a Car southern Africa improved operating profit by 14% despite difficult trading conditions in the new luxury coach charter business. The business further improved its high fleet utilisation, grew rental day volumes and increased revenue per rental day. The southern African motor retail operations delivered a good result. Improved margins, cost containment and a strong finance and insurance contribution supported the result, while service hours were marginally lower than the prior period. The Australian operations continued to perform well. Avis Fleet Services produced a solid result in the current low interest rate environment. The remaining shares in Phakisaworld Fleet Solutions were acquired during the year and the business was consolidated with effect from January. The logistics business has improved on the back of focused management actions. New contracts awarded in southern Africa supported the result. Overall volumes and margins remain under pressure in the international businesses, however opportunities to improve the mix of business continue to be progressed. Associates include our Soweto and Sizwe BEE joint ventures which performed in line with expectations. The Soweto Toyota and Soweto Volkswagen dealerships will take time to mature in this developing market and have performed better in the second half of the financial year.

UK, Belgium and Netherlands in particular have slowed largely as a result of the Eurozone debt crisis. Revenue grew in all businesses apart from the UK and the Netherlands which were down on last year. Orders on hand at the end of September were 9% up on last year-end, with Handling in South Africa more than 60% ahead. While our used business was robust, margins elsewhere came under pressure. Short-term rental utilisation has moderated but this is for larger fleets in some countries. Agricultural sentiment was good for the first half of the year but drought conditions in certain parts of South Africa and Russia caused a large drop in demand in the second half. Price competition in the low cost tractor sector further reduced returns in South Africa. The new agricultural operation in Mozambique almost broke even while the market in Siberia was down more than 50% from last year. Nevertheless future prospects remain bright for the agriculture businesses. The SEM activity in South Africa again showed growth. Overall operating profits are down largely due to currency impacts and the drought. Market shares improved in the UK, SEM and Agriculture SA. Agriculture stock levels ended the year too high in Russia and South Africa as a result of lower sales growth following the drought. All other businesses reduced net assets. The Handling business in the US was sold at the end of April, generating some $60 million of cash and the Handling business in the UK was sold at the end of September, generating some £47 million of cash. The trading outlook for 2013 is positive for the agriculture businesses assuming the drought has abated. Slowing order intake as a result of the Eurozone debt crisis will depress returns in the Netherlands and Belgium. The Handling business in South Africa and SEM should grow profitably in the new year.
