Weir Group to Cut Another 125 Jobs

Slumping orders for oil and gas projects in the wake of the oil price collapse have forced the Weir Group to cut another 125 jobs. Weir has already shed 1,300 staff around the world in the 2014, but chief executive Keith Cochrane swung the axe again on April 29, 2015 in a quest for £10 million in savings. Since the start of the year, the US oil-rig count has more than halved, as explorers slashed capital spending. This sent orders in Weir's oil and gas division down 23% in the first quarter.

The Weir Group plc Announces Earnings Results for the First Quarter of 2015

The Weir Group plc announced earnings results for the first quarter of 2015. The company reported input of 9% lower than the prior year period and 10% lower than the fourth quarter of 2014, primarily driven by a significant drop in North American oil and gas activity levels. Original equipment orders were down 22% and aftermarket orders were down 2% against the prior year period. On a like for like basis3 (excluding Trio), order input was down 12%, with original equipment down 28% and aftermarket down 4%. Revenues on a constant currency basis were down in the first quarter compared to the prior year period, broadly in line with input, primarily driven by reduced North American Oil & Gas activity levels. Aftermarket revenues were slightly up on the prior year on a constant currency basis, with good growth from Minerals and Power & Industrial more than offsetting the Oil & Gas decline. Original equipment revenues were materially lower. The order book increased in the period with a positive book to bill ratio of 1.05. Group operating margins were down 400bps compared to the prior year, with the decline largely due to lower margins in Oil & Gas. As stated in February, the Group is planning for a significant reduction in constant currency revenues and lower operating margins in 2015. Net debt at 3 April 2015 was slightly higher than that reported at 2 January 2015, with improved underlying cash generation offset by the negative foreign exchange translation impact of USD denominated debt. The Group remains confident of delivering strong cash generation in 2015.
