The board of Informa plc has recommended an interim dividend of 6.55 pence the six months ended June 30, 2015, which will be payable on September 11, 2015 to ordinary shareholders registered as on August 14, 2015. The company paid 6.40 pence in the first half of 2014. The company continues to actively invest in building management capability and adding relevant experience across the Group. This was evident through the first half with a number of key hires and the company has announced the appointment of Charlie McCurdy as Chief Executive of the Global Exhibitions Division, taking over from Will Morris, who is due to retire at the end of the year. Mr. McCurdy brings extensive knowledge and experience to the Group, having held a number of Senior Executive roles in the Exhibition and wider Business-to-Business Media Industry. Most recently, he was CEO of George Little Management and prior to this, he was CEO of Canon Communications for five years, another business-to-business events, publishing and online company. Mr. McCurdy is also currently Chairman of the Society of Independent Show Organizers. The company announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2015. For the period, the company's revenue was £618.8 million compared with £569.6 million a year ago. Operating profit was £133.5 million compared with £112.3 million a year ago. Adjusted operating profit was £190.4 million compared with £166.7 million a year ago. Operating cash flow was £153.7 million compared with £108.6 million a year ago. Profit before tax was £121.9 million compared with £100.2 million a year ago. Adjusted profit before tax was £178.2 million compared with £155.2 million a year ago. Profit for the period was £99.8 million or 15.2 pence per diluted share compared with £79.5 million or 13.0 pence per diluted share a year ago. Adjusted profit for the period attributable to equity shareholders was £141.4 million compared with £121.5 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per share were 21.8 pence compared with 20.1 pence a year ago. Net debt was £911.7 million as June 30, 2015 against £794.8 million as June 30, 2014. Higher statutory profit was £99.8 million compared with £79.5 million a year ago. Statutory operating profit was £133.5 million compared with £112.3 million a year ago. EBITDA from continuing operations was £201.1 million compared with £176.5 million a year ago. Net cash inflow from operating activities was £129.9 million compared with £71.6 million a year ago. Purchase of property and equipment was £4.3 million compared with £2.5 million a year ago. Purchase of other intangible assets was £39.8 million compared with £6.9 million a year ago. Revenue is up 8.6%, reflecting the positive performance from the businesses added in 2014, particularly in the North American exhibitions market, and a currency tailwind from the stronger U.S. dollar. The 8.6% revenue growth has driven an 8.5% increase in earnings, 21.8 pence. This improvement in its trading results has been delivered against a backdrop of no change in the trading environment for the 4 divisions, with challenging trading conditions continuing for Business Intelligence and Knowledge & Networking. The company continues to focus on improving operational fitness in the business as it implements the 2014-2017 Growth Acceleration Plan (GAP). In the year 2015, the company expects to invest between £30 million and £40 million in a range of initiatives designed to match and exceed customer demands and exploit growth opportunities. The company continues to expect around 70% of this investment to be classed as capital expenditure. The company delivered a steady performance in the first half and full year expectations remain unchanged, with growth in adjusted earnings per share anticipated, notwithstanding some weakening of the US Dollar against Sterling.

Informa Seeks Acquisitions

Informa plc (LSE:INF) is looking for acquisitions. Informa announced that acquisitions remain a core element of its 2014-2017 Growth Acceleration Plan strategy as it seeks to scale its position in priority markets, further internationalise and buy-in additional capabilities.
