Centrica Preliminary Results 2013 - Interviews with Senior Executives
LONDON, February 20, 2014
LONDON, February 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
To coincide with the release of Centrica plc's 2013 preliminary results the
company's management have undertaken a series of short video interviews.
Rick Haythornthwaite, the newly appointed Chairman, outlines the essential
role that Centrica has in securing a stable energy supply. Calling for renewed
dialogue with all stakeholders he says:
"I think the reputation of Britain as a place in which to invest is under
threat and the time to correct that is now not after the 2015 election, by
which time the possibility of the lights going out in Britain will be looming
much larger. And I don't see this as the figment of a scaremonger's
imagination. I think right now we've got to restart collaborative,
construction dialogue around these key issues, we cannot afford to wait,
hostilities have got to cease."
Sam Laidlaw, Chief Executive, highlights the key achievements made across the
business in 2013. Reflecting on the failure to reach a political consensus
over future investments he says: "Uncertainty is the enemy of investment, it
puts basically a premium on delay which is very unfortunate."
Also interviewed are Chris Weston, Managing Director, International Downstream
and Managing Director of British Gas, who discusses the marketplace and
responds to those calling for a full competition review into the sector. Group
FD Nick Luff updates on financial performance.
