For the year, the company reported revenue of £169.430 million compared to £181.603 million a year ago. Operating profit before exceptional items was £2.552 million compared to £2.530 million a year ago. Operating profit was £0.561 million compared to £2.530 million a year ago. Profit before taxation was £0.385 million compared to £2.354 million a year ago. Loss attributable to the equity holders of the parent company was £0.163 million or 0.41 pence per diluted share compared to profit attributable to the equity holders of the parent company of £1.081 million or 6.46 pence per diluted share a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was £1.296 million compared to net cash generated from operating activities of £2.043 million a year ago. Purchase of property plant and equipment was £0.018 million compared to £1.778 million a year ago. Purchase of software assets was £0.348 million compared to £0.178 million a year ago. At 31 December 2014 the group had net debt of £6.7 million against £4.0 million a year ago. Adjusted earnings were £1.894 million or 0.25 pence per diluted share compared to £1.504 million or 6.46 pence per diluted share a year ago. The company’s plan for 2015 is to remain focused on sustainable, profitable business. The changes implemented are intended to ensure that the Board delivers on its key objectives of improving profitability, increasing cash generation and growing the Group's revenue. The Board of the company has recommended a final dividend of 3.1 pence per share compared to 3.1 pence per share a year ago, maintaining the total dividend for the year at 4.6 pence per share compared to 4.6 pence a year ago. Subject to approval at the Annual General Meeting, the dividend will be paid on May 29, 2015 to shareholders on the register on May 1, 2015. The company announced that Tim Smeaton has expressed his wish to step down as CEO and his resignation from the Board will take immediate effect, though he will remain available to the Group as needed to complete a smooth handover of responsibilities. Stephen Puckett has been appointed as Chairman of Hydrogen Group plc on a non-executive basis, with effect from March 4, 2015. Stephen was previously the Group Finance Director of Michael Page International plc (now Page Group plc) for over 11 years and has been an independent non-executive director of the Company since September 2012. Anne Baldock, who also joined the Board in September 2012, has succeeded Stephen Puckett as Senior Independent Director. These appointments preserve the separation of roles on the Board. They are in line with the Group's existing governance arrangements which take account of the guidelines contained in the QCA 2013 Corporate Governance Code for Small and Mid-Size Quoted Companies. John Glover has also signified his intention to step down after 8 years as Finance Director and the search for his successor is now under way.

Hydrogen Group PLC Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014

Hydrogen Group PLC provided earnings guidance for the year 2014. For the period, the company expects annual profitability to be in line with market consensus. As a result of cost reductions and a renewed focus on core business opportunities, profitability during the second half of 2014 improved significantly against the first half of the year and was in line with management projections. This was despite net fee income in the second half of the year being somewhat lower than in the first half. Following the comprehensive review of the business undertaken earlier in the year, management expects to have delivered savings of around GBP 4.0 million in administration costs for 2014, compared with 2013. The Group plans to take an exceptional charge of GBP 2.0 million related to the non-recurring costs of restructuring the business in 2014. The Group anticipates some good opportunities for development of existing business in 2015.
