Trading Update


Since the announcement of the Group's Interim Management Statement on 6 November 2012, Costain continues to perform well and consequently finished the year in line with the Board's expectations.


As a result of new orders and contract extensions the Group finished the year with a high quality Order Book of £2.4 billion (2011: £2.5 billion) of which over 90% is repeat orders, providing good long-term visibility. In excess of £700 million of work has been secured for 2013 (2011: in excess of £650 million secured for 2012).  


In addition, Costain has a strong preferred bidder position of over £400 million.


The Group finished the year with a strong cash position and no significant borrowings.


Andrew Wyllie, Chief Executive, commented:


"Costain continues to be successful by focusing on meeting the increasingly integrated service requirements of major customers. Utilising a partnership approach, the Group provides innovative and cost effective solutions to complex and large-scale customer requirements through its consulting, project delivery and operations and maintenance capability."
