    Notice of Results and Segmentation Changes

    02 Jul
     

    Notice of Interim Results

    RPS will announce its Interim Results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 on Thursday, 2 August 2018.

    A meeting for analysts will be held at 9.30am on the morning of the results announcement at the offices of Buchanan, 107 Cheapside, London, EC2V 6DN.

    Segmentation changes

    Since the publication of the Group’s results for the year ended 31 December 2017 on 1 March 2018, the Board has made the following organisational changes.

    Creation of a global Energy business

    As part of the Board’s strategic priority to revitalise our Energy business, the Group’s oil and gas businesses in Australia Asia Pacific (‘AAP’) and Norway, part of Built and Natural Environment – Europe, have been transferred to Energy.

    In addition, the Group’s Metocean businesses in AAP and Built & Natural Environment - North America (‘BNE - North America’), that have significant oil and gas sector exposure, have also been transferred to Energy.

    A new team is in place to lead and manage Energy, which now provides consulting and services to the oil and gas sector on a global basis.

    The Board has also changed the name of BNE – North America to ‘North America’. The Group’s ocean science business, based in the USA, that provides services to various sectors including oil and gas, remains within the North America business.

    Re-organisation of our businesses in Europe

    RPS provides a range of consultancy and technical services in UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Norway. To provide increased focus and manage the Group’s businesses better the Board has made the following organisational changes.

    1) Our business in Norway that provides project and program management and is managed by a dedicated team is now reporting directly to the Group’s CEO.

    2) Our business in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands is now being managed as two separate businesses:

    a) a design and development, planning and environment, and project management consulting business in UK and Ireland, named ‘Consulting - UK and Ireland’; and

    b) a water, laboratory, health, safety and risk services business in UK and the Netherlands, named ‘Services - UK and Netherlands’.

    RPS will present its results for the six months ended 30 June 2018 reflecting the above and will comprise six segments as follows:

    Energy
    Consulting - UK and Ireland
    Services - UK and Netherlands
    Norway
    North America
    AAP

    These segmental changes have been implemented across the Group to enhance organisational effectiveness and efficiency. The Board believes that these changes will provide additional transparency to investors.

    The restatement of prior period results consistent with this new segmental structure is shown below in Appendix 1 and 2.

    In conformity with the Transparency Directive's transitional provision 6 we would like to notify the market of the following:
     
    RPS Group plc's capital consists of 225,445,657 ordinary shares with voting rights. RPS Group plc does not hold any shares in Treasury. The increase in the number of shares (126,786) from those announced on 31 May 2018 relate to the Company’s Share Incentive Plan and Performance Share Plan.

    The above figure (225,445,657) may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, RPS Group plc under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

    AGM Trading Update

    01 May

    “Q1-2018 trading steady and in line with management’s expectations”

    RPS announces that the Group’s trading for the three months ended 31 March 2018 (‘Q1-2018’) was in line with management’s expectations.

    Fee income in Q1-2018 was £141.9 million (Q1-2017: £141.3 million, at constant currency £135.9 million).

    Profitability in Q1-2018, while slightly above management’s expectation, was lower than in the same period last year due to the Easter holiday break falling partly in March this year and due to foreign exchange movements.

    Our Built and Natural Environment (BNE) business in Europe experienced steady conditions in all its main markets. In BNE North America, market conditions were good although it remains difficult to recruit staff which is hampering progress. In Australia Asia Pacific, market conditions were generally favourable on the east coast and there was more activity in the west coast oil and gas markets. In Energy there has been a marked increase in the level of enquiries and general market activity although this has yet to translate into additional work.

    Net bank debt at 31 March 2018 was £87.0 million (31 December 2017: £80.6 million).
