Overview H1 2013 Trading performance Interim Interim Jun 2013 Jun 2012 % $m $m Change Revenue from continuing operations 3,447.1 3,346.3 3.0% EBITA from continuing operations1 243.2 205.1 18.6% EBITA margin from continuing operations % 7.1% 6.1% 1.0pt Profit from continuing operations before 186.6 160.0 16.6% tax and exceptional items Basic EPS 43.5c 33.9c 28.3% 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. Interim Interim Jun 2013 Jun 2012 % $m $m Change Revenue 982.6 872.2 12.7% EBITA 119.8 104.1 15.1% EBITA margin 12.2% 11.9% 0.3pts People3 10,500 10,100 4% 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. Interim Interim Jun 2013 Jun 2012 % $m $m Change Revenue 1,913.7 1,774.1 7.9% EBITA 111.1 90.0 23.4% EBITA margin 5.8% 5.1% 0.7pts People 28,600 28,000 2% 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. Interim Interim Jun 2013 Jun 2012 % $m $m Change Revenue 550.8 700.0 (21.3)% EBITA 40.6 38.1 6.6% EBITA margin 7.4% 5.4% 2.0pts People 3,600 3,700 (3)% 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 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.

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.

John Wood Group PLC Notes to the interim financial statements for the six month period to 30 June 2013 5. Acquisitions In May 2013, the Group acquired Intetech Limited, a technical and engineering consultancy based in Chester, England for an initial consideration of $4.6m (net of $2.4m cash acquired). Contingent consideration of $5.5m has been provided. Net assets acquired amounted to $5.1m with goodwill of $7.4m being recorded on the acquisition. Contingent consideration payments amounting to $12.0m were made during the period in relation to acquisitions completed in previous years. 6.

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.

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. R Keiller Chief Executive A G Semple Chief Financial Officer 19 August 2013 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.
