Home Retail Group plc Proposes Final Dividend for the Year Ended February 28, 2015, Payable on July 23, 2015; Provides Interim Dividend Guidance for the Year Ending February 27, 2016; Reports Consolidated Financial Results for the 52 Weeks Ended February 28, 2015

Home Retail Group plc announced final dividend of 2.8 pence recommended for the year ended February 28, 2015, an increase of 15%. This takes the full-year dividend to 3.8 pence against 3.3 pence paid a year ago, which is a 15% increase in the full-year dividend. The final dividend, subject to approval by shareholders at the AGM, will be paid on 23 July 2015 to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 21 May 2015. The company announced that as the group's earnings profile remains heavily weighted to the seasonal Christmas trading at Argos and hence the second half of the group's financial year, it continues to be the Board's intention to hold the interim dividend for the year ending 27 February 2016 at 1.0 pence. The company reported consolidated financial results for the 52 weeks ended February 28, 2015. For the period, the company reported sales of £5,710.4 million against £5,663.0 million a year ago. Benchmark operating profit was £129.5 million against £113.0 million a year ago. Net interest income was £2.6 million against £2.4 million a year ago. Benchmark PBT was £132.1 million against £115.4 million a year ago. Benchmark EPS per diluted share was 12.4 pence against 10.1 pence a year ago. Profit before tax was £93.8 million against £71.2 million a year ago. Profit for year was £71.6 million against £54.0 million a year ago. Basic EPS was 9.4 pence against 6.8 pence a year ago. Basic benchmark EPS was 13.0 pence against 10.4 pence a year ago. Cash flow from operating activities was £202.8 million against £161.0 million a year ago. This £41.8m increase was principally attributable to an increased operating profit performance together with a cash inflow from trade working capital partially offset by the cost of exit associated with certain stores in the Homebase store estate. Net capital expenditure was £167.8 million against £173.1 million a year ago. Statutory operating profit after exceptional items was £101.9 million against £70.0 million a year ago. Benchmark diluted EPS was 12.4 pence against 10.1 pence a year ago. Reported diluted EPS was 8.9 pence against 6.6 pence a year ago. Total net debt was £1,605.1 million against £1,715.2 million a year ago. Purchase of plant, property and equipment £81.2 million against £72.5 million a year ago. Purchase of other intangible assets was £93.3 million against £102.8 million a year ago.

Home Retail Group plc, 2015 Earnings Call, Apr 29, 2015

Home Retail Group plc, 2015 Earnings Call, Apr 29, 2015

Home Retail Group plc Reports Trading Results for the Fourth Quarter, Second Half and Full Year Ended February 28, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

Home Retail Group plc reported trading results for the fourth quarter, second half and full year ended February 28, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total sales at Argos declined by 4.0% to £505 million in this short period.  Net new space contributed 1.0%, while like-for-like sales declined by 5.0%.  This trading performance was in part due to annualizing a 5% like-for-like sales growth in the same period last year, together with the impact of a more difficult market in a number of consumer electronic product categories.  Like-for-like sales at Homebase declined by 0.9% in this short period, principally due to annualizing a 9% like-for-like growth in the same period last year. Total sales declined by 4.7% to £193 million and net closed space reduced sales by 3.8%. For the second half of 2015, the company reported total sales at Argos declined by 0.3% to £2,327 million in second half. Net new space contributed 0.8%, while like-for-like sales declined by 1.1%. Total sales at homebase declined by 3.3% to £644 million in second half. Net new space contributed 3.4%, while like-for-like sales declined by 3.3%.  For the year, the company reported full-year total sales grew by 1.1%, like-for-like sales increased by 0.6% and net new space contributed 0.5%. The store estate has increased by 21 stores to 755 in the year, an increase that is in line with previously announced plans. This increase comprised a total of 30 new stores which included 20 Argos digital concessions within Homebase and seven new small format digital stores, partially offset by nine store closures. At home base full-year total sales declined by 0.7%, like-for-like sales increased by 2.3% and net closed space reduced sales by 3.0%. There were 30 store closures and three store openings in the year, reducing the store portfolio by 27 stores to 296, a reduction that is ahead of previous guidance for the current financial year and which is part of the previously announced productivity plan. The company expects that group benchmark profit before tax for the fiscal year 2015 financial year will be towards the top end of the current range of market expectations of £120 million to £132 million.
