Steve Morgan, Chairman of Redrow, said

 

"Redrow delivered a robust performance in the first half, producing another set of record results. In the last six months legal completions increased by 13% to 2,459 adding to the country's much needed supply of new homes.

 

At the beginning of February we purchased Radleigh Homes a regional housebuilder based in the East Midlands. Radleigh is an excellent fit given its geographical location and high quality market position. Radleigh will form the basis of a new division for the Group.

 

We entered the second half with a record order book, and customer traffic and sales remain robust.

 

Given the strength of our sales position and land holdings our growth strategy is firmly on track, giving me every confidence this will be another year of significant progress for Redrow."

Chairman's Statement

 

Redrow delivered a robust performance in the first half of the year, delivering yet another set of record results.  In the last six months legal completions increased by 13% to 2,459 adding to the country's much needed supply of new homes.

 

Financial Results

 

In the first half of the 2017 financial year Group Revenue increased by 23% to £739m. Legal completions, including our Croydon Joint Venture, increased by 281 homes from 2,178 to 2,459 and for wholly-owned sites the increase was 238.  The average selling price of our private homes increased by 12% from £306,000 to £344,000 mainly due to geographical mix, with 47% of turnover being generated in the South of England, compared to 38% in the first half of last year.

 

As a consequence of the mix change, a reduction in impaired sites and net house price inflation, gross margin increased from 24.2% to 25%.

 

Overheads rose from £36m to £41m, given the further growth in the business.  However, due to efficiency of scale, they reduced as a percentage of turnover from 6% to 5.5%.

 

Operating profit increased by 31% to £144m (2016: £110m) and pre-tax profits were 35% higher at £140m (2016: £104m). Earnings per share at 31p were 35% up on the previous year (2016: 22.9p).

 

The half year Return on Capital Employed improved to 24% (2016: 21%) and Return on Equity improved to 25.4% (2016: 23.7%).

 

Net debt at the end of December 2016 was £56m (June 2016: £139m), giving gearing of 5%. We expect a modest rise in our net debt position in the second half, as a result of the recent Radleigh Homes acquisition and our ongoing investment in the business.

 

As a result of the strong earnings and cash performance of the business, the Board has decided to pay an interim dividend of 6p per share (2016: 4p). The interim dividend will be paid on 5 May 2017 to holders of ordinary shares on the register at the close of business on 24 March 2017.

 

Market

 

Demand for new homes remains strong throughout the country, on the back of improved mortgage availability and competitive mortgage rates in the last six months.  The strong demand, together with the Government's commitment to increasing housing supply, gives us every confidence in the pursuit of our growth strategy.  In the first half of the financial year 865 of our private reservations utilised Help to Buy, up from 746 in the same period last year. 

 

The value of private reservations in the first half increased by 13% on a like-for-like basis (27 weeks) to £777m (2016: £688m) resulting in a record closing order book of £897m, up 35% on a like-for-like basis from December 2015.

 

Our sales rate per outlet per week over the 27 week period was 0.66, up 5% on the 0.63 for the same period last year. The consequence of the faster sales rate was that a number of sites sold out earlier than expected.  As a result, and despite opening more outlets than forecast, we were operating on 122 outlets at the end of December 2016 (2015: 121) rather than the 127 planned.  The number of outlets should increase notably in the second half.  As always, however, this is subject to progressing a considerable number of sites through the planning process, which unfortunately remains as ponderous as ever.

 

Land and Planning

 

As a result of the substantial increase in our owned and contracted land in the last financial year, together with the timing of land purchases this year, we secured 1,760 plots for our current land holdings in the last six months. Of these, 1,352 were converted from our forward land pipeline. Over the same period our forward land pipeline has remained unchanged with the potential for 25,600 plots, with the land transferred to current land holdings being replaced by new additions.

 

In February 2017 we acquired Radleigh Homes, a regional housebuilder based in Derby. Radleigh Homes completed 188 homes in the year to December 2016 and has a pipeline of over 1,300 plots with planning, and a further 1,200 plots controlled under options in its strategic land pipeline.  Radleigh Homes is an excellent fit given its geographical location and its high quality market position, similar to Redrow.  This acquisition will form the basis of a new regional division for the Group: Redrow East Midlands.

 

People

 

The ongoing growth in the business has resulted in our directly employed workforce exceeding 2,200 people, including over 300 apprentices and trainees. Despite our commitment to develop our own talent, there continues to be a shortage of skilled labour in the industry. Redrow is at the forefront of actively encouraging young people to enter the industry and develop successful careers across all disciplines.  It is essential that our example is followed industry-wide if we are to resolve this issue.

 

Our committed team continue to support the business as it grows, for which I thank them and I would also like to take the opportunity to welcome the Radleigh employees to Redrow.

 

Current Trading and Outlook

 

We are pleased to update our medium term guidance as a result of the strength of our order book and sales rate, the recent acquisition of Radleigh Homes and lower net debt expectations. In 2019 we expect to deliver turnover of £1.9bn, an operating margin of 19.5% and earnings per share of 77p.

 

We entered the second half of the current year with a record order book, with many of our sites sold five to six months in advance.  The strong advance sales have the effect of limiting availability; nevertheless customer traffic and sales remain robust and the sales rate since the beginning of 2017 at 0.73 is in line with last year. Our growth strategy is firmly on track, giving me every confidence this will be another year of significant progress for Redrow.

NOTES (Unaudited)

 

1.         Accounting policies

 

Basis of preparation

 

The condensed consolidated half-yearly financial information for the half-year ended 31 December 2016 has been prepared on a going concern basis in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and with IAS 34, 'Interim financial reporting' as adopted by the European Union. The half-yearly condensed consolidated report should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2016, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.

 

These half-yearly financial results do not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. These condensed half-yearly financial statements have been reviewed, not audited. Audited statutory accounts for the year ended 30 June 2016 were approved by the Board of Directors on 5 September 2016 and delivered to the Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors on those accounts was unqualified, did not contain an emphasis of matter paragraph, and did not contain any statement under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of this consolidated half-yearly report are included in the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2016. These policies have been consistently applied to all the periods presented.

 

The preparation of condensed half-yearly financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may subsequently differ from these estimates. In preparing these condensed half-yearly financial statements, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the annual consolidated financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2016.

 

After making due enquiries and in accordance with the FRC's 'Going Concern and Liquidity Risk: Guidance for Directors of UK Companies 2009', the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue trading for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the Directors continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed consolidated half-yearly financial statements.

 

The main operation of the Group is focused on housebuilding. As it operates entirely within the United Kingdom, the Group has only one reportable business and geographic segment. There is no material difference between any assets or liabilities held at cost and their fair value.

 

New standards

 

           a)         New and amended standards adopted by the Group

 

The following new standards and amendments to standards are mandatory for the first time for the financial year beginning 1 July 2016. These new standards are not expected to have a material impact for the Group:

·    Amendment to IAS 1 'Presentation of financial statements' on the disclosure initiative (effective 1 January 2016)

 

b)         The following new standards, new interpretations and amendments to standards and interpretations have been issued but are not effective for the financial year beginning 1 July 2016:

·    Amendment to IAS7, 'Statement of cash flows' on disclosure initiative (effective 1 January 2017).

·    IFRS 15, 'Revenue from contracts with customers' (effective 1 January 2017).

·    Amendment to IFRS 15, 'Revenue from contracts with customers' (effective 1 January 2018).

·    IFRS 16 'Leases'. This standard replaces the current guidance in IAS17 and is a far-reaching change in accounting by lessees in particular (effective 1 January 2019)

 

Principal risks and uncertainties

 

As with any business, Redrow plc faces a number of risks and uncertainties in the course of its day to day operations.

 

The principal risks and uncertainties facing the Group are outlined on pages 18 to 20 of our

half-yearly report 2016.

 

2.         Income taxes

 

Income tax charge is recognised based on management's best estimate of the weighted average annual income tax rate expected for the full financial year (19.75% (2016: 20.00%)).

 

3.         Dividends

 

A dividend of £22m was paid in the six months to 31 December 2016 (six months to 31 December 2015: £15m).

 

4.         Earnings per share

 

The basic earnings per share calculation for the six months ended 31 December 2016 is based on the weighted number of shares in issue during the period of 363m (31 December 2015: 362m) excluding those held in trust under the Redrow Long Term Incentive Plan, which are treated as cancelled.

 

Diluted earnings per share has been calculated after adjusting the weighted average number of shares in issue for all potentially dilutive shares held under unexercised options.

Independent review report to Redrow plc

 

Report on the consolidated half-yearly financial statements

 

Our conclusion

We have reviewed Redrow plc's consolidated half-yearly financial statements (the "half-yearly financial statements") in the half-yearly report of Redrow plc for the 6 month period ended 31 December 2016. Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the half-yearly financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

What we have reviewed

The half-yearly financial statements comprise:

·    the consolidated balance sheet as at 31 December 2016;

·    the consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the period then ended;

·    the consolidated statement of cash flows for the period then ended;

·    the consolidated statement of changes in equity for the period then ended; and

the explanatory notes to the half-yearly financial statements

 

The half-yearly financial statements included in the half-yearly report have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

As disclosed in note 1 to the half-yearly financial statements, the financial reporting framework that has been applied in the preparation of the full annual financial statements of the Group is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

 

Responsibilities for the half-yearly financial statements and the review

 

Our responsibilities and those of the directors

The half-yearly report, including the half-yearly financial statements, is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly report in accordance with the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the half-yearly financial statements in the half-yearly report based on our review. This report, including the conclusion, has been prepared for and only for the company for the purpose of complying with the Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules sourcebook of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority and for no other purpose. We do not, in giving this conclusion, accept or assume responsibility for any other purpose or to any other person to whom this report is shown or into whose hands it may come save where expressly agreed by our prior consent in writing.

 

What a review of interim financial statements involves

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, 'Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity' issued by the Auditing Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial information consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures.

 

A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and, consequently, does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

 

We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the half-yearly financial statements.
