Adjusted diluted EPS2                      44.5c     37.4c       19.0%        
The Group has delivered good growth in the first half and we remain confident
of achieving full year performance in line with expectations. Revenue from
continuing operations increased by 3% and EBITA from continuing operations was
up 19%. EBITA margin increased by 100bps from 6.1% to 7.1%. Adjusted diluted
EPS increased by 19% to 44.5 cents. Reflecting our confidence in the longer
term outlook for the Group, we have declared an interim dividend of 7.1 cents,
an increase of 25%, which will be paid on 26 September 2013. 
In Wood Group Engineering, revenue and EBITA increased by 13% and 15%
respectively, and the division should deliver EBITA growth of c. 10-15% for the
full year. In Wood Group PSN, revenue growth of 8% and EBITA growth of 23%
includes a significant contribution from our US onshore activities in the shale
regions. In Wood Group GTS, revenue decreased by 21% reflecting the anticipated
reduction in Power Solutions, and EBITA increased by 7%, due to improved
margins in Maintenance. 
During the period, we made good progress on increasing collaboration across the
divisions. In July, Wood Group Mustang and Wood Group PSN jointly secured a
topsides detailed engineering and procurement scope for an offshore development
in Canada, and we are working more closely together in the US, Australia and
elsewhere. 
Developing our combined Group strategy and tactics will continue throughout
2013 and we will provide an update on this as matters progress. Acquisition led
growth will remain part of our strategy. In May, we acquired Intetech Limited,
a niche provider of software and engineering consultancy services for well
integrity and corrosion management, and in July we acquired Pyeroy, to expand
the range of services we provide into specialist coatings and fabric
maintenance which are critical to extend the life of clients' infrastructure. 
Overall, the Group has achieved good growth in EBITA in the first half and we
remain confident of achieving full year performance in line with expectations.
Activity levels generally remain healthy and we believe the Group is well
positioned for future growth. 
Wood Group Engineering 
We provide a wide range of market-leading engineering services to the upstream,
subsea & pipelines, downstream & industrial and clean energy sectors. These
include conceptual and FEED studies, engineering, project & construction
management (EPCM) and control system upgrades.

In Wood Group Engineering, revenue increased by 13%, reflecting growth across
upstream, subsea & pipelines and downstream, process & industrial. EBITA
increased by 15%. 
Headcount increased 3% from December 2012. Additions, notably in Saudi Arabia
and London, were partially offset by continuing reductions in Canada. 
Subsea and Pipelines represents around 45% of divisional revenue. We continue
to benefit from US shale related pipeline work in our onshore activities and
have recently won projects with Dow Chemical and Williams. Strength in subsea
related spending is continuing and we are seeing good activity across our
principal subsea hubs in the UK, US and Asia Pacific. In May, we acquired
Intetech Limited, a niche provider of software and engineering consultancy
services for well integrity and corrosion management. 
Our Upstream business represents around 40% of divisional revenue. The
Mafumeira Sul and Ichthys projects will make a significant contribution to
Engineering EBITA for the year and are expected to complete by the year end. We
were awarded a number of new contracts in the Gulf of Mexico during the period,
including the FEED for Hess Stampede and the detailed engineering on Anadarko
Heidelberg, although we did see project delays. In the Norwegian market, we are
working on Ivar Assen for SMOE. In Canada, we secured the topsides detailed
engineering for an offshore development. Our business in Western Canada, which
represents just over 5% of divisional revenue, has weakened further and we do
not expect it to recover during 2014. 
Downstream, process & industrial activities accounted for over 15% of revenue.
We have seen some improvement in performance, although the market looks set to
remain competitive. 
Outlook 
Wood Group Engineering continues to perform well and should deliver EBITA
growth of c. 10-15% for the full year, following annual EBITA growth of over
30% in 2011 and 2012. This compares to our previous estimate of around 15% and
reflects some project delays and, most recently, further weakening in Canada.
These factors, and the expected completion of the Mafumeira Sul and Ichthys
projects by the year end, are challenges to growth in 2014. Looking further
ahead, global exploration activity continues at a healthy level, which we
believe should provide good opportunities. 
Wood Group PSN 
We provide life of field support to producing assets through brownfield
engineering & modifications, production enhancement, operations and
maintenance, training, maintenance management and abandonment services.

In Wood Group PSN, revenue and EBITA growth of 8% and 23% respectively,
includes a significant contribution from our US onshore activities. On a pro
forma basis, restating the 2012 results to include Mitchells and Duval as if
they had been acquired on 1 January 2012 and to apply the average exchange
rates used to translate the 2013 results, revenue and EBITA grew by 3% and 4%. 
The Americas represents around 35% of revenues, and is expected to be the
largest region by EBITA for Wood Group PSN in 2013. Our US onshore business is
showing strong growth, led by performance in the shale regions where we are
seeing a good contribution from the Duval and Mitchells acquisitions made in
2012. Offshore US, we secured operations & maintenance work for Hess in the
Gulf of Mexico, an important award in the emerging deepwater production support
market. 
The North Sea represents around 40% of revenue, and continues to see robust
activity levels. We secured a number of contract renewals in the period with
customers including CNR, Conoco Phillips, Nexen, Teekay and Total which
reinforce our position as the leading operations management provider in the
region. We also renewed our duty holder contract with Ithaca Energy for the
Beatrice platforms and Nigg terminal, our first "life of asset" contract
covering operations through to decommissioning. In July, we acquired Pyeroy,
marking a strategic move into specialist coatings and fabric maintenance
services which are particularly relevant for extending asset lives. 
Internationally, we were recently awarded the brownfield engineering and
procurement support work for ExxonMobil's operations in Papua New Guinea,
expected to create around 500 jobs. We also secured commissioning work with
Shell for the Manjoon field in Southern Iraq. In Oman, as anticipated, we have
seen underlying losses reduce, and are working to deliver operational
efficiency and cost reductions initiatives required to achieve profit. 
Outlook 
Wood Group PSN is expected to generate good growth in 2013, benefitting from
strong performance in the US led by our activities in the shale regions,
together with recovery in Oman. Looking ahead, we have an established leading
position in the North Sea market, and see further opportunities in the US,
including in the shale regions, and internationally. 
Wood Group GTS 
We are a leading independent provider of rotating equipment services and
solutions for clients in the power and oil & gas markets. These services
include facility operations & maintenance, repair & overhaul of gas turbines
and other rotating equipment, power plant engineering, procurement &
construction and construction management services to owners of power generation
facilities.

Revenue decreased by 21%, reflecting the anticipated reduction in Power
Solutions. EBITA increased by 7%, due to improved margins in Maintenance. 
Maintenance revenue was broadly in line with the first half of 2012 and
benefited from strength in oil and gas related work. Engine overhaul deferrals
from the first quarter began to come through towards the end of the half, which
contributed to our aero derivative joint ventures performing in line with H1
2012 overall. Elsewhere in Maintenance we saw improved performance due to cost
reduction initiatives, particularly in our power plant services business. 
In Power Solutions, revenues were down to around $150m as expected which
reflects the completion of GWF and the later stage of Dorad. The NRG and
Pasadena contracts have progressed well and made a good contribution to EBITA,
although this was offset by the recognition of increased costs on Dorad. The
Dorad contract is scheduled for completion around the year end, and we remain
confident that we will soon finalise change orders which should benefit the
full year position. We also reached final agreement on the outstanding change
orders on GWF, which resulted in a strong EBITA contribution from the project
overall. 
Outlook 
In Wood Group GTS we anticipate that 2013 EBITA will be slightly ahead of 2012,
with the expected lower contribution from Power Solutions being offset by the
successful delivery of planned performance improvements in Maintenance. We
continue to pursue a number of smaller opportunities in Power Solutions, some
of which have reached conditional agreement and should contribute to 2014.

The increase in net current assets since December 2012 is due primarily to the
increase in working capital in the period. 
Capital efficiency 
The continuing Group's Return on Capital Employed ("ROCE")5 increased from
17.8% at 30 June 2012 to 18.1% as a result of the increased profit in the
period.

Cash generated from operations pre-working capital increased by $54.8m to
$281.5m and post-working capital increased by $79.4m to $133.2m. The working
capital outflow of $148.3m in the first half of 2013 was primarily due to
increased receivables in the Engineering division and higher GTS inventory.

$16.6m was paid in relation to acquisitions made in the period (2012: $26.0m).
$4.6m relates to the acquisition of Intetech Limited, a technical and
engineering consultancy based in north-west England and $12.0m relates to
payments made in respect of companies acquired in prior periods.

In early July, the Group acquired Pyeroy, a company based in the north-east of
England which provides specialist coatings, access and fabric maintenance
services to the oil & gas and other industries.

Payments for capex and intangible assets increased to $64.9m (2012: $45.4m).

Tax payments in the period totalled $55.8m (2012: $84.9m) and interest,
dividends and other amounted to $59.1m (2012: $39.4m). The reduction in tax
paid from 2012 relates to payments made in the prior year in respect of the
gains made on the disposal of the Well Support business in 2011.

Principal risks and uncertainties

The principal risks and uncertainties facing the Group in the second half of
2013 that could lead to a significant loss of reputation or could impact on the
performance of the Group, along with our approach to managing and mitigating
these risks, remain broadly unchanged from those described in the Group's 2012
Annual Report.

The key risks are in the following areas:

Safety excellence and process assurance

Delivering expected operational performance

An internal or external event leading to a breakdown in our financial controls

An environmental incident

Inappropriate pricing, contract terms, or failure to comply with contract terms

A substantial ethical breach or non-compliance with laws

The availability of appropriately skilled personnel

A cyclical downturn or prolonged recession

The mitigating factors set out in the 2012 Annual Report are designed to
reduce, but cannot be relied upon to eliminate, the risk areas identified. For
further details on the management of risk and the principal risks and
uncertainties see pages 18, 19 and 31 of the Group's 2012 Annual Report.

Footnotes

1 EBITA from continuing operations represents operating profit from continuing
operations pre-exceptional items of $194.4m (2012: $166.1m) before the
deduction of amortisation of $48.8m (2012: $39.0m) and is provided as it is a
key unit of measurement used by the Group in the management of its business.

2 Adjusted diluted earnings per share ("AEPS") is calculated by dividing
earnings before exceptional items and amortisation, net of tax, by the weighted
average number of ordinary shares in issue during the period, excluding shares
held by the Group's employee share ownership trusts and adjusted to assume
conversion of all potentially dilutive ordinary shares.

3 Number of people includes both employees and contractors at 30 June 2013.

4 Interest cover is EBITA from continuing operations divided by the net finance
charge from continuing operations.

5 Return of Capital Employed ("ROCE") is EBITA divided by average capital
employed.

John Wood Group PLC

Notes to the interim financial statements
for the six month period to 30 June 2013

1. Basis of preparation

The interim report and financial statements for the six months ended 30 June
2013 have been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency
Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and with IAS 34 `Interim financial
reporting' as adopted by the European Union. The interim report and financial
statements should be read in conjunction with the Group's 2012 Annual Report
and Accounts which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by
the European Union.

The interim report and financial statements have been prepared on the basis of
the accounting policies set out in the Group's 2012 Annual Report and Accounts
and those new standards discussed below which are applicable from 1 January
2013. The interim report and financial statements do not comprise statutory
accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. The
interim financial statements were approved by the Board of Directors on 19
August 2013. The results for the six months to 30 June 2013 and the
comparative results for six months to 30 June 2012 are unaudited. The
comparative figures for the year ended 31 December 2012 do not constitute the
statutory financial statements for that year. Those financial statements have
been delivered to the Registrar of Companies and include the auditor's report
which was unqualified and did not contain any statement under Section 498 of
the Companies Act 2006.

In preparing these interim financial statements, the significant judgements
made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key
sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those applied to the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2012.

After making enquiries, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the
Group has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the
foreseeable future.

The Group therefore continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparing
the consolidated interim financial statements.

Functional currency

The Group's earnings stream is primarily US dollars and the principal
functional currency is the US dollar, being the most representative currency
of the Group. The Group's financial statements are therefore prepared in US
dollars.

The following exchange rates have been used in the preparation of these
accounts:


                                   June 2013 June 2012
Average rate £1 = $                       1.5467    1.5752
Closing rate £1 = $                       1.5167    1.5685 
Disclosure of impact of new and future accounting standards 
(a) Amended standards and interpretations 
The following revisions and amendments to standards and
interpretations are mandatory as of 1 January 2013: 
- IAS 1 (amended 2012) `Financial statement presentation' 
- IAS 19 (revised 2011) `Employee benefits' 
- IAS 34 (amended 2012) `Interim financial reporting' 
- IFRS 13 (amended 2012) `Fair value measurement' 
The amendments to IAS 1 relate to other comprehensive income. The main change
resulting from these amendments is a requirement for entities to group items
presented in `other comprehensive income' (OCI) on the basis of whether they
will be potentially reclassified to profit or loss in subsequent periods. The
amendments do not address which items are presented in OCI. 
The revision to IAS 19 does not have a material impact on the
financial statements. The revision has been adopted in the current period and
has resulted in an increase in net finance expense in the income statement. As
the impact of this revision is not material in both the current and prior
period, no restatement of the comparative information has been made. 
IFRS 13 measurement and disclosure requirements are applicable for periods
commencing from January 2013, and IAS 34 has been amended to take account of
this. The Group has included the disclosures required by IAS 34 para 16A(j).
Please refer to note 13. 
(b) Standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards
that are not yet effective and have not been early adopted by the Group 
The following relevant standards and amendments and interpretations
to existing standards have been published and are mandatory for the Group's
accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2014 or later periods, but
the Group has not early adopted them: 
- IFRS 10 `Consolidated financial statements' 
- IFRS 11 `Joint arrangements' 
- IFRS 12 `Disclosure of interests in other entities' 
The Group currently accounts for its interests in joint ventures using
proportional consolidation. IFRS 11 does not permit proportional consolidation
and therefore from 1 January 2014, for all periods presented, the Group will
account for its interests in joint ventures using equity accounting. The use
of equity accounting will have no impact on Group profit for the year or
earnings per share, but will impact the presentation of the Group's interests
in joint ventures in the income statement and in the balance sheet.

Notes 
1. Total continuing EBITDA represents operating profit of $211.7m (2012:
$156.8m) before the charge for continuing depreciation of property, plant and
equipment of $24.9m (2012: $19.4m), amortisation of $48.8m (2012: $39.0m) and
continuing exceptional credits of $17.3m (2012: charge of $9.3m). EBITA
represents EBITDA less depreciation. EBITA and EBITDA are provided as they are
units of measurement used by the Group in the management of its business. 
2. Central costs include the costs of certain management personnel in both the
UK and the US, along with an element of Group infrastructure costs. 
3. Revenue arising from sales between segments is not material.

7.1 cents per share (2012: 5.7 cents) which will be paid on 26 September

which will be recognised in equity attributable to owners of the parent as an
appropriation of retained earnings in the financial statements for the year
ended 31 December 2013.

Basic discontinued earnings per share for the period is 3.9 cents (2012: 4.0 
cents) and diluted discontinued 
earnings per share is 3.7 cents (2012: 3.9 cents). 
The calculation of basic earnings per share (`EPS') is based on the earnings
attributable to equity shareholders divided by the weighted average number of
ordinary shares in issue during the period, excluding shares held by the
Group's employee share trusts. For the calculation of diluted EPS, the
weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue is adjusted to assume
conversion of all potentially dilutive ordinary shares. The Group has two
types of dilutive ordinary shares - share options granted to employees under
Employee Share Option Schemes, the Long Term Retention Plan and the 2013 Long
Term Plan; and shares issuable under the Group's Long Term Incentive Plan.
Adjusted basic and adjusted diluted EPS are disclosed to show the results
excluding the impact of exceptional items and amortisation, net of tax. 
7. Taxation 
The taxation charge for the six months ended 30 June 2013 reflects an
anticipated effective rate of 27.5% on continuing profit before taxation and
exceptional items for the year ending 31 December 2013 (June 2012 : 29.0%). 
Legislation to reduce the main rate of UK corporation tax from 24% to 23% from
1 April 2013 was included in the Finance Act 2012. Further reductions to the
main rate were announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement and the March 2013
Budget Statement to reduce the rate to 21% from 1 April 2014 and to 20% from 1
April 2015. These further changes had not been substantively enacted at the
balance sheet date and, therefore, are not reflected in these financial
statements. 
8. Retirement benefit obligations
No interim revaluation of the pension liability has been carried out at 30
June 2013 and accordingly there is no actuarial gain/loss in the Group
statement of comprehensive income. The figures for gains and losses for the
full year together with the surplus/deficit at the year end will be presented
in the 2013 Annual Report and Accounts. 
9. Related party transactions 
The following transactions were carried out with the Group's joint ventures in
the six months to 30 June. These transactions comprise sales and purchase of
goods and services in the ordinary course of business. The receivables include
loans to certain joint venture companies.

12. Share based charges 
Share based charges for the period of $14.2m (2012: $11.7m) relate to options
granted under the Group's executive share option schemes and awards under the
Long Term Incentive Plan, the Long Term Plan and the Long Term Cash Incentive
Plan (`LTCIP'). The charge is included in administrative expenses in the
income statement. The liability of $2.8m in respect of the LTCIP is included
in non-current liabilities with the balance of the charge, $11.4m being
credited to equity. 
13. Fair value of non-derivative financial assets and financial liabilities 
The fair value of short-term borrowings, trade and other payables, trade and
other receivables, short-term deposits and cash at bank and in hand
approximates to the carrying amount because of the short maturity of interest
rates in respect of these instruments. Drawdowns under long-term bank
facilities are for periods of three months or less and as a result, book value
and fair value are considered to be the same. 
Details of derivative financial instruments are not disclosed in the financial
statements as they are not material. 
14. Capital commitments 
At 30 June 2013 the Group had entered into contracts for future
capital expenditure amounting to $12.3m. The capital expenditure relates to
property plant and equipment and has not been provided in the financial
statements. 
15. Contingent liabilities 
From time to time, the Group is notified of claims in respect of work carried
out. Where management believes we are in a strong position to defend these
claims no provision is made. In addition, the Group is currently cooperating
in an investigation into a facility where it previously provided services,
however management do not believe that it is probable that any material
liability will arise from this matter. 
16. Post balance sheet events 
On 2 July 2013, the Group acquired Pyeroy Group Limited, a company based in
Gateshead, England which provides specialist coatings, access and fabric
maintenance services to the oil and gas and other industries. The initial
consideration for Pyeroy was £44.8m ($67.9m). 
Statement of directors' responsibilities 
for the six month period to 30 June 2013 
The directors confirm that the interim financial statements have
been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 `Interim Financial Reporting' as
adopted by the European Union and that the interim management report includes
a fair review of the information required by DTR 4.2.7 and DTR 4.2.8, namely: 
 — an indication of important events that have occurred during the first six  
months and their impact on the financial statements and a description of  
the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the  
financial year; and 
 — material related party transactions in the first six months and any  
material changes in the related party transactions described in the 
last annual report. 
The directors of John Wood Group PLC are listed in the Group's 2012 Annual
Report and Accounts.

Independent review report
to John Wood Group PLC
for the six month period to 30 June 2013 
Introduction 
We have been engaged by the company to review the condensed set of financial
statements in the interim financial report for the six months ended 30 June
2013, which comprises the Group income statement, Group statement of
comprehensive income, Group balance sheet, Group statement of changes in
equity, Group cash flow statement and the related notes. We have read the
other information contained in the interim report and considered whether it
contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the
information in the condensed set of financial statements. 
Directors' responsibilities 
The interim financial report is the responsibility of, and has been approved
by, the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the interim
financial report in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of
the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority. 
As disclosed in note 1, the annual financial statements of the Group are
prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union. The
condensed set of financial statements included in this interim financial
report have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard
34, "Interim Financial Reporting", as adopted by the European Union. 
Our responsibility 
Our responsibility is to express to the company a conclusion on the condensed
set of financial statements in the interim financial report based on our
review. This report, including the conclusion, has been prepared for and only
for the company for the purpose of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of
the Financial Conduct Authority and for no other purpose. We do not, in
producing this report, accept or assume responsibility for any other purpose
or to any other person to whom this report is shown or into whose hands it may
come save where expressly agreed by our prior consent in writing. 
Scope of review 
We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review
Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, `Review of Interim Financial Information
Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity' issued by the Auditing
Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial
information consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for
financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review
procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in
accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and
consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware
of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly,
we do not express an audit opinion. 
Conclusion 
Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to
believe that the condensed set of financial statements in the interim
financial report for the six months ended 30 June 2013 is not prepared, in all
material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 as
adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the
United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

a) The maintenance and integrity of the John Wood Group PLC website is the 
responsibility of the directors; the work carried out by the auditors  
does not involve consideration of these matters and, accordingly, the  
auditors accept no responsibility for any changes that may have occurred

Shareholder information 
Payment of dividends 
The Company declares its dividends in US dollars. As a result of
the shareholders being mainly UK based, dividends will be paid in sterling,
but if you would like to receive your dividend in dollars please contact the
Registrars at the address below. All shareholders will receive dividends in
sterling unless requested. If you are a UK based shareholder, the Company
encourages you to have your dividends paid through the BACS (Banker's
Automated Clearing Services) system. The benefit of the BACS payment method is
that the Registrars post the tax vouchers directly to the shareholders, whilst
the dividend is credited on the payment date to the shareholder's Bank or
Building Society account. Shareholders who have not yet arranged for their
dividends to be paid direct to their Bank or Building Society account and wish
to benefit from this service should contact the Registrars at the address
below. Sterling dividends will be translated at the closing mid-point spot
rate on 30 August 2013 as published in the Financial Times on 31 August 2013.
