diploma plc (DPLM) Key Developments

Diploma PLC Provides Financial Guidance for the Six Months Ending March 31, 2015

Diploma PLC provided financial guidance for the six months ending March 31, 2015. The businesses acquired during the past year have made a good contribution to the Group's overall results and revenues for the six months ending March 31, 2015 are expected to be ca. 9% ahead of the comparable period. The acquired businesses have contributed ca. 9% to Group revenues, but currency volatility has continued to impact the Group's results, reducing revenues by ca. 2%. On an underlying basis, after adjusting for the impact of currencies and acquisitions, revenues are expected to increase by ca. 2%. The main driver to revenue growth has been from the Seals businesses where revenues have benefited both from acquisitions completed last year and from strong demand, particularly in the North American Seals businesses. In Life Sciences, the recent acquisition of the TPD business has contributed to a strong increase in headline revenues. Underlying growth has been flat as the Canadian Healthcare businesses have faced tougher markets, with hospitals increasing their focus on controlling costs as they approach the end of their budgetary fiscal year. In Controls, underlying revenues have reduced against the strong prior year comparative, reflecting lower activity in the Motorsport and Aerospace fastener sectors and softer European industrial markets. After spending ca. £34 million on completing the acquisitions of TPD (Life Sciences) in October 2014 and Kubo (Seals) in early March 2015, the Group expects to have net debt of ca. £18 million at March 31, 2015, compared with cash balances of £21.3 million at September 30, 2014.
