Operating profit was $466 million against $453 million a year ago. Profit after tax was $286 million or 18.3 cents per basic share against $280 million or 18.0 cents per basic share a year ago. EBITDA was $763 million against $719 million a year ago. Capital expenditure was $521 million against $433 million a year ago. Cash Flow from Operations was $269 million, down $107 million, primarily reflecting the increased capital expenditure required to support expansion, in particular in the RPCs business. Net debt was $2,846 million. Sales revenue was $2,795 million. The company generated sales revenue of $2,795 million, up 5% (up 8% at constant currency). The difference between actual and constant-currency growth primarily reflected the impact of the stronger US dollar. Sales growth resulted from the continued delivery of the group's organic growth strategy in the Pallets, RPCs and Containers segments and the acquisition of Ferguson Group. EBITDA was $763.4 million against $718.6 million a year ago. Free cash flow was $114.5 million against $182.9 million a year ago. Net debt was $2,846.1 million at 31 December 2014, up $484.4 million from 30 June 2014, reflecting the debt funding of the Ferguson acquisition. Capital expenditure of $521.2 million was up $87.8 million, reflecting an increase to support strong growth and crate availability in RPCs, new customers and organic growth in Pallets and the acquired Ferguson business. For the fiscal year 2015, the company’s constant FX sales revenue growth expected to be 8% to 9%; underlying profit to be $1,055 million to $1,085 million; effective underlying tax rate anticipated at 29% (net of finance costs). The company continue to expect improved return on capital invested, excluding acquisitions, albeit ROCE will be diluted on a reported basis as a result of the acquisitions that the company have made.
