Interserve Press Office | Nov 14, 2016
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, today provides an update on current trading for the first ten months of the year and reiterates existing guidance for full year 2016 performance.
Trading remains in line and expectations for the overall performance and cash delivery of the Group are unchanged.
Within this overall performance, the continuing challenges of the UK construction market and the impact of slightly lower activity levels in public sector outsourcing are expected to be offset by stronger international construction and equipment services results.
Progress on contracts within our exited Energy from Waste business is in line with previous guidance, although significant risks still remain. The cash profile of work on these contracts has changed during the last few months, as we have sought to minimise overall risks by accelerating certain supply chain payments. This is expected to be offset by working capital management throughout the rest of the Group to maintain year end net debt at the previously guided levels of £300m-£320m.
We will provide a close period update on trading and year end net debt levels in mid January 2017.
