Philip Rogerson, Chairman, commented:
"I am pleased to report that Aggreko has produced another strong set of results, and that we are in a position to increase returns to shareholders substantially, while continuing to invest at record levels in growing the business."
"The current instability in some countries in the Middle East and Africa makes the task of predicting the outcome for the year more than normally difficult. Our global scale and diversification of risk exposures will be helpful as we manage through this period of uncertainty, and we anticipate that for the year as a whole trading profit in 2011 will be at a similar level to 2010. Allowing for currency movements and the GBP87 million of major events revenue in 2010 which will not recur in 2011, this would represent underlying growth of around 15%."
Rupert Soames, Chief Executive, commented:
"2010 demonstrated the strength of Aggreko's business model. A hat-trick of major events has allowed us to deliver strong earnings growth while our International Power Projects business completely re-structured its order book and delivered the key strategic objective of improving the regional balance of business between Africa, the Americas and Asia. We go into 2011 with strong momentum, a record order book in International Power Projects, and continued strong demand driven by the world-wide shortage of power."
"We expect both International Power Projects and our Local businesses to deliver good growth on an underlying basis in 2011, and to support this, fleet capital investment in 2011 is expected to increase by 26% to a record GBP320 million."
