ladbrokes plc (LAD) Key Developments

Ladbrokes plc Intends to Invest £25 Million to £30 Million over the Next Three Years; Announces Interim Dividend for the Year 2015; Provides Dividend Guidance for the Current Financial Year 2015; Announces Unaudited Group Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Half Year Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2015

Ladbrokes plc announced that it intends to invest £25 million to £30 million in improving its estate over the next three years focusing on where investment would improve performance in local markets and enhance the customer experience. The company announced the board no longer considers it appropriate to maintain dividends at 8.9 pence per share for the current financial year 2015. The board now intends to declare a total dividend of 3 pence per share for fiscal year 2015, including an interim dividend of 1 pence for fiscal year 2015. The reduced dividend will be reinvested to finance the investment programme. The company announced unaudited group earnings results for the second quarter and half year ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported group EBIT including world cup of £24.6 million against £38.4 million a year ago. For the half year ended June 30, 2015, the group headline net revenue before high rollers was up 1.3% to £585.4 million compared with £577.8 million a year ago, and up 4.2% excluding revenue from the 2014 World Cup with results continuing to favor its customers and margins remaining lower than last year most notably in the Sportsbook. Total headline net revenue including high rollers was £588.8 million against £589.3 million a year ago. Headline operating profit before high rollers were £38.9 million against £56.8 million a year ago. Headline operating profit including high rollers were £41.7 million against £67.5 million a year ago. As at 30 June 2015, net debt was £414 million and CapEx for the half year was £27 million. The company announced that, reflecting the investment programme, fiscal year 2015 operating profit now expected to be £20 million lower than the board's previous expectation. Revenue for the enlarged group would be around £2.1 billion. EBITDA, which for this purpose excludes high roller activity, would be just shy of £400 million.
