Hays plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2015

For the year, the company continues to expect the percentage rate of growth in operating profit to be between 2x and 3x the percentage rate of growth in net fees, on a like-for-like basis.

Hays plc Reports Group Interim Management Statement for the First Quarter Ended September 30, 2014; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

Hays plc reported group interim management statement for the first quarter ended September 30, 2014. In the first quarter ended September 30, 2014 net fee increased 4% on a headline basis and 9% on a like-for-like basis against the prior year. The difference between actual and like-for-like net fee growth rates was primarily the result of a material depreciation of both the Australian Dollar and the Euro against Sterling. If the rates of exchange of the Group's key operating currencies remained as at 6 October levels through the remainder of the year, it would reduce operating profit by £7 million versus financial year 2014. The Temp business, which accounted for 58% of group net fees in the quarter, increased by 7% and the underlying temp margin was broadly stable. The Perm business increased by 12%. Cash performance in the quarter was in line with expectations, with net debt at the end of September at £60 million against £97 million a year ago. In the normal course, on a like-for-like basis the company expects the percentage rate of growth in operating profit for the year to be between 2 and 3 times the percentage rate of growth in net fees.
