WEIR Group announced earnings results for the first six month of 2015. The company saw revenue in the first six months of the year slip 13% from GBP 1.14 billion to almost GBP 1 billion. The company underlying pre-tax profit drop from GBP 181.8 million to GBP 108.2 million. The half-year profits of the company plunge 40% as a result of difficult oil and gas markets.

On a positive note, cash generated by operations increased by 35% in the first half to GBP 202 million, driven by excellent cash collection of receivables with the EBITDA to cash conversion ratio 124%.

Weir Group Mulls Acquisitions

The Weir Group PLC (LSE:WEIR) intends to pursue acquisitions. The company has reiterated its appetite for acquisitions. "Merger and acquisition is part of our strategy and we continue to look for things. We would certainly hope there will be some opportunities for us over the coming months and years," Andrew Neilson, Director of Strategy, said.

Weir Group to Cut Another 125 Jobs

Slumping orders for oil and gas projects in the wake of the oil price collapse have forced the Weir Group to cut another 125 jobs. Weir has already shed 1,300 staff around the world in the 2014, but chief executive Keith Cochrane swung the axe again on April 29, 2015 in a quest for £10 million in savings. Since the start of the year, the US oil-rig count has more than halved, as explorers slashed capital spending. This sent orders in Weir's oil and gas division down 23% in the first quarter.
