Keller Group plc Reports Earnings Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015; Announces Interim Dividend for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2015, Payable on September 4, 2015

The Board of Keller Group plc has decided to increase the interim dividend by 5% to 8.8 pence per share for the six months ended June 30, 2015. The dividend will be paid on 4 September 2015 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 14 August 2015. The company reported consolidated earnings results for the six months ended June 30, 2015. The company announced that the results for the six months ended 30 June 2015 reflect a steady performance in the first half albeit after a slow start to the year. Group revenue was down 4% at £755.8 million compared to £788.2 million a year ago, reflecting a lower contribution from major projects in the first half of 2015. Despite this, group operating profit increased to £37.7 million compared to £35.5 million a year ago, and the group operating margin was 5.0%, up on 4.5% at the end of the first half of 2014. On a constant currency basis, revenue was down 5% and the operating profit was up 4%. Profit before tax was £34.6 million compared to £32.5 million a year ago. Profit attributable to equity holders of the parent was £22.3 million compared to £21.0 million a year ago. Diluted share earnings per share were 31.1 pence compared to 29.5 pence a year ago. EBITDA was £62.8 million compared to £59.8 million a year ago. Cash generated from operations in the first half of 2015 was £18.6 million compared to £31.9 million a year ago. In the twelve months ended 30 June 2015, the total cash generated from operations was £152.1 million, which equates to 105% of the period's EBITDA. Net debt at 30 June 2015 was £171.5 million, representing 1.2 times annualised EBITDA. Capital expenditure in the first half totaled £33.8 million compared to £28.6 million a year ago. Acquisition of intangible assets was £0.3 million compared to £0.1 million a year ago. The decrease in cash flow is due to an exceptional performance in the fourth quarter of 2014, which made the starting position for the current year pretty challenging. For the full year, the company expects capital expenditure to total about GBP 70 million.
