For the year, the company reported sales revenues from continuing operations of $5,464.6 million compared with $5,404.5 million for the same period a year ago. Operating profit from continuing operations was $938.5 million compared with $929.5 million for the same period a year ago. Profit before tax from continuing operations was $826.6 million compared with $816.5 million for the same period a year ago. Profit after tax from continuing operations was $585.5 million or 37.3 cents per diluted share compared with $584.5 million or 37.3 cents per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Profit for the year attributable to members of the parent entity was $584.4 million or 37.2 cents per diluted share compared with $1,267.7 million or 80.8 cents per diluted share for the same period a year ago. Underlying profit was $985.8 million compared with $960.1 million for the same period a year ago. EBITDA was $1,534.8 million compared with $1,488.4 million for the same period a year ago. Net cash inflow from operating activities was $1,323.2 million compared with $1,267.9 million for the same period a year ago.

Net debt was $2,688.9 million compared with $2,361.7 million for the same period a year ago. Return on capital invested was down 0.5 point to 15.7% as a result of the goodwill impact of acquisitions, most notably, Ferguson. Cash flow from operations at $729 million was $99 million lower than the prior year. Total free cash flow after dividends improved $8 million to $45 million in the year. Net debt of almost $2.7 billion at June 2015 was up $327 million on the prior year, primarily reflecting the debt funding of the Ferguson acquisition. The company provided earnings guidance for the full year of fiscal 2016. Subject to there being no material change in underlying economic conditions, in fiscal 2016, the company expects to deliver constant-currency growth in sales revenue and Underlying Profit in the range of 6% to 8%. The company has forecasts underlying profit to be between $1,000 million and $1,020 million, at June 30, 2015 foreign exchange rates. Return on capital invested is likely to be down slightly in fiscal year 2016 and this is reflecting the investments the company expects to undertake during the period as well as higher goodwill as a result of recent acquisitions. The company currently expects to invest $1.5 billion of growth capital expenditure from fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2019. This spending is over and above replacement capital expenditure over the next few years, which the company expects to remain broadly stable. The company is expecting interest costs in the region of $120 million to $125 million, and the company expects the effective tax rate on underlying profit to remain about the same as this year at 29%.
