William Sinclair Holdings plc Announces Preliminary Earnings Results for the Year Ended September 30, 2014

William Sinclair Holdings plc announced preliminary earnings results for the year ended September 30, 2014. For the period, the company's sales for the were flat when compared to the previous year, with sales during the second half of the year being slightly lower than for the comparable period in 2013. This was in part due to the unusually late growing season in 2013 which led to stronger than normal performances during the later months of April and May. In addition, some sales were lost by the company's professional division following the closure of its Boothby site and during the transition to Ellesmere Port. Net bank debt as at September 30, 2014 was £3.5 million. This reflects the trading results, the significant level of exceptional items in the year caused by refinancing costs, dual running costs related to the move from Boothby to Ellesmere Port (which were at a higher level in the second half as Ellesmere Port built up its staffing levels), the significant capital expenditure during the year at Ellesmere Port as well as the receipt from Natural England. The underlying EBITDA loss for the year will be approximately £1 million, compared with the earlier expectation of a broadly breakeven underlying EBITDA.
