William Hill plc Approves Interim Dividend, Payable on December 4, 2015; Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Half Year Ended June 30, 2015; Provides CapEx Guidance for the Full Year of 2015

The board of William Hill plc has approved an interim dividend of 4.1 pence per share against 4.0 pence per share a year ago, an increase of 2.5%. The interim dividend is to be paid on December 4, 2015 to ordinary shareholders on the register of members on October 23, 2015. The company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first half year ended June 30, 2015. For the period, the company reported revenue of £808.1 million compared to £805.2 million a year ago. Profit before interest and tax was £98.6 million compared to £148.0 million a year ago. Profit before tax was £78.7 million compared to £121.8 million a year ago. Profit for the period (attributable to equity holders of the parent) was £69.5 million or 7.9 pence per basic and diluted share, compared to £98.6 million or 11.2 pence per diluted share, a year ago, reflecting the increase in exceptional charges arising from the acceleration of amortization of the acquired Australian brands, following the decision to rebrand to William Hill Australia in that market. Net cash from operating activities was £159.2 million compared to £175.6 million a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment was £9.0 million compared to £20.2 million a year ago. Expenditure on intangible assets was £18.5 million compared to £14.1 million a year ago. The results reflect the impact of those fiscal and regulatory changes, as well as the roll-over of a very successful 2014 FIFA World Cup. At 12.5 pence, basic adjusted earnings per share (EPS) fell by 11.3% compared to 14.1 pence a year ago. This fall was broadly in line with the fall in pre-exceptional profit for the period, taken together with a 1% increase in the average number of shares in issue. The adjustments made to basic EPS relate to exceptional items and the amortization of acquired intangible assets: adjustments which reflect the key business metric of operating profit and give a better sense of underlying business progress. The earnings per diluted share - adjusted were 12.4 pence compared to 14.0 pence a year ago. The group spent £28 million of CapEx in first half, with an increase in Online CapEx but a slowdown in Retail CapEx. The company provided CapEx guidance for the full year of 2015. The company expects to be spending around £75 million to £80 million of CapEx in full year of 2015, of which around £3 million to £4 million more will be allocated to Australia than previously anticipated.

William Hill Signs an Agreement with MasterCard to Roll Out a New Prepaid Card

William Hill has signed an agreement with MasterCard to roll out a new prepaid card that enables customers to withdraw cash or pay for items directly from their William Hill accounts. With this card, VIP customers can access their winnings instantly after bets are settled, rather than waiting for three to five working days for online settlement. The Priority Access card can be used by customers for payments anywhere a debit or credit card is accepted. The prepaid card has been designed to cut-out the middleman and provide customers the same instant access to their winnings as its retail services.
