Electrocomponents plc Approves Interim Dividend, Payable on 9 January 2015

The Board of Electrocomponents plc has approved a maintained interim dividend of 5.0 pence per share, which will be paid on 9 January 2015 to shareholders on the register as at 5 December 2014.

Electrocomponents plc Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended 30 September 2014; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Full Year 2014

Electrocomponents plc announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the six months ended 30 September 2014. For the six months, the company reported revenue of £616.4 million against £635.4 million a year ago. Operating profit was £58.1 million against £47.2 million a year ago. Financial income was £1.1 million against £2.1 million a year ago. Profit before tax was £55.5 million against £44.6 million a year ago. Profit for the period attributable to the equity shareholders of the parent company was £41.0 million against £31.8 million a year ago. Earnings per share basic and diluted were 9.3 pence against 7.2 pence a year ago. This decrease was slightly lower than the decrease in headline profit before tax, as the headline effective tax rate decreased to 28% from 29% in the prior-year period, primarily reflecting the reduction in the UK corporate tax rate. Net cash from operating activities was £40.2 million against £46.7 million a year ago. Headline free cash flow (reported free cash flow before reorganisation cash costs) was £24.6 million. This was £11.4 million lower than the first half of last year, principally due to lower headline operating profit together with higher capital expenditure of £6 million, as the step-up in investment associated with the Group's strategic growth initiatives mainly began during the second half of 2014 and increased stock investment. Capital expenditure and financial investment was £17.3 million against £11.4 million a year ago. Net debt was £150.7 million against £148.5 million a year ago. There was a combined negative impact to Group headline profit before tax of around £4 million due to fewer trading days and adverse currency movements from translational impacts (principally the strengthening of Sterling against the Euro and US Dollar). This accounted for 10% of the 16% first half headline profit before tax decline. Free cash flow was £24.6 million against £36 million a year ago. Headline profit on ordinary activities after taxation was £26.7 million or 6.0 pence per diluted share against £31.8 million or 7.2 pence per basic and diluted share a year ago. Headline profit before tax was £37.4 million against £44.6 million a year ago. Headline operating profit was £40.0 million against £47.2 million a year ago. For the full year of fiscal 2015, the company continues to expect capital expenditure of around £40 million, with planned investment in the second half targeted at one global offer, eCommerce with a human touch and world-class systems and infrastructure strategic initiatives.
