The Weir Group plc Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Year Ended January 2, 2015; Provides Capex Guidance for Fiscal 2015

The Weir Group PLC reported consolidated earnings results for the year ended January 2, 2015. Revenue from continuing operations of GBP 2.4 billion increased 9% in constant currency terms with operating profit up 5% to GBP 450 million. Profit before tax of GBP 409 million is up 7% year-on-year on a constant currency basis. Profit for the period from continuing operations was GBP 73.7 million against GBP 335.7 million a year ago. Profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the company was GBP 73.1 million against GBP 334.9 million a year ago. Basic and diluted earnings per share were 34.3 pence against 157.2 pence a year ago. Purchases of property, plant & equipment and intangible assets were GBP 108.0 million against GBP 108.4 million a year ago. Return on capital employed was 18.1% against 17.5% a year ago. Cash generated by operations decreased by 11% to GBP 421 million, driven by adverse foreign exchange impacts and an absolute increase in working capital in Oil & Gas, given the very strong revenue growth in that division. Headline earnings per share were 141.3 pence compared to 145.4 pence in 2013. In total, free cash inflow reduced to GBP 79 million. In terms of working capital, of the full year cash outflow of GBP 82 million, GBP 79 million was in the first half with the second half broadly flat, even though the Oil & Gas business continue to grow strongly. Net debt increased from GBP 747 million at the end of 2013 to GBP 861 million at the end of fiscal 2014, driven by investment in acquisitions and an adverse FX movement of GBP 44 million. For 2015, the company expects net CapEx to fall to around GBP 90 million as it looks to prioritize investment, focusing on key strategic initiatives and health and safety requirements. The company is expecting to see substantial improvements in working capital such that it generates a meaningful increase in free cash flow. The company expects effective tax rate on profits before exceptional items and intangibles amortization to be in the range of 24% to 25%, lower than 2014 given the reduced proportion of group taxable income expected to be generated in the U.S.
