Major Dutch banks choose Worldline to manage Sepa eMandate services and iDEAL transactions 5 hours ago | 610 views | 0 Source: Worldline Worldline [Euronext:WLN], European leader in the payments and transactional services industry, today announced that it has signed two contracts with major Dutch banks. One new contract is to manage the new eMandate services for SEPA Direct Debit proposed by Betaalvereniging Nederland (BVN) and one is to manage SEPA Credit Transfer proposed by iDEAL, the most popular payment means in the Netherlands. These two new contracts mean that Worldline is now the leading processor of non-card transactions online in the Netherlands. Its successful track record of processing iDEAL transactions combined with its new emandate service positions Worldline perfectly to extend its epayment services across Europe, enabling consumers to easily and securely pay by phone, tablet or PC. Wolf Kunisch, Head of the Global Business Line Financial Processing & Software Licensing and Managing Director of Germany & CEE at Worldline said: "Our solutions help to offer merchants and consumers easy and secure ways to pay in this new digital age in compliance with SEPA regulations. We are delighted to have been awarded these two contracts which are testament to the expertise of our teams and the strength and quality of our SEPA solutions. These two wins consolidate our position as the European leader in e-payments and are a clear signal from our customers that we are the leading iDEAL acquiring partner. We are looking forward to further extending our Online Banking ePayment portfolio in the next few years by offering additional services including e-Identity and e-Invoice. The Worldline eMandate solution is based on the EPC Rulebooks. Consumers give consent via their bank's on-line portal, which means they can remain in their safe online banking environment. For the creditor, they can be sure that the account is open and that consent has been properly given. The eMandate developed for the Dutch banks as promoted by BVN is fully compliant with SEPA Direct Debit regulations and it enables consumers to pay online with PC, tablet or mobile phone. In 2014, Worldline processed all 220 million SEPA Credit Transfers in iDEAL scheme. With the introduction of eMandate in Dutch market, SEPA Direct Debit for online transactions will rapidly grow also.

I think Fenner have got our great little business on the cheap! Problem is the institution involved has said Yes TO THE FIRST BLOODY PRICE OFFERED! - It's an outrageous disgrace but it's all over already. Take the cash - buy Fenner later.

Great results as anticipated, both by co and here (see above). But still can't see why the directors are even considering a bid at 185p; interim results alone justified that figure - finals suggest 250p min! Come on directors; you've worked wonders to get this much value - future looks very rosy; now do the right thing for your shareholders and extract MAXIMUM value if you're gonna sell the family silver please.

RNS Number:2985K Wellington Holdings PLC 30 March 2005 For Immediate Release 30 March, 2005 WELLINGTON HOLDINGS PLC Preliminary Results for the year ended 31 December, 2004 Sales up 9.4%;Operating Profit up 31.9%*; Wellington Holdings plc., the manufacturer and distributor of specialist polymer seals for engineering and industrial applications worldwide, today announces preliminary results for the year ended 31st December 2004. Results show an increase in turnover and operating profits,*whilst margins are at a record 14.8%. Commenting on the Group's performance, Chairman, Brian Kent said: - "We achieved excellent growth in virtually all our market segments, and this, together with tight control of costs,has produced an impressive 32% increase in operating profits." Financial Highlights 2004 2003 Turnover #34m #31m Operating Profit* #5m #3.8m Profit before Tax #5.1m #1.9m Earnings per share* 12.5p 9.6p Dividend per share 7.0p 6.5p Interest cover* 9.0x 5.6x Margins at a record 14.8%* Operating highlights: 1. Earnings per share* up 30% 2. Sales growth throughout our key market segments 3. Operating profit up 32%* 4. Gearing reduced from 113% to 25% 5. Completion of sale of Hampton site for #6.5m * Before goodwill amortisation ,exceptional items and profit on sale of property. Commenting on the outlook, Mr. Kent added: "The good order input of last year has continued into this new year and the trading is on plan for the year to date. Assuming a continued strong energy sector throughout the whole year, together with the implementation of our present plans,this will lead to another year of satisfactory growth under the leadership of our new Chief Executive Officer,Mr David Jones,appointed in November 2004." For Further information contact: Brian Kent, Chairman 020 8941 3774 David Jones, Group Chief Executive 020 8941 3774 Philip Brady, BDO 020 8941 3774 or visit the Wellington website: - www.wellingtonholdings.com Chairman's Statement In 2004, we achieved excellent growth in virtually all our market segments resulting in a 9.4% overall gain in sales to #33.9m (2003: #31m). This, together with tight control of costs, has produced an impressive 32% growth in operating profit to #5.0m before goodwill amortisation, exceptional items and profit on sale of property. The sales and profit figures have taken account of adverse currency movements, principally the US dollar, which have had the effect of reducing them respectively by #2.0m and #0.3m. Margins improved to a record 14.7% (12.2%) as operational gearing was enhanced by the achievement of higher output levels in our plants. In November we successfully completed the sale of our Hampton site for #6.5m (book value #4.6m) which, after transaction costs and other pre-project costs for our coming new development, led to a one-off net additional profit of #1.6m and a #0.75m contribution to the profits. Therefore, profit before tax showed a substantial rise to #5.1m from last year of #1.9m. As a result, E.P.S., before goodwill, exceptional items and profit on sale of property, rose by 30% to 12.46p (9.57p) whilst basic earnings per share moved from 5.84p in 2003 to 16.17p. Markets Our involvement in global energy markets, through our seals for oil and gas wells, together with our special seals for longwall mining, has been a key driver for increased volumes into our factories both in the USA and UK and accounts for 31% of sales. Volumes have been further enhanced by a strong market for construction and off-highway vehicles which contributed 25% of our sales. Finally, the automation market, accounting for 44% of sales, also performed strongly as demand for hydraulic seals (the muscles of industry) grew during the year, particularly in Germany and Australia. We therefore experienced an excellent product mix in expanding markets which confirmed our standing as a global supplier of key components to very demanding applications. Financial Capital expenditure at #1.3m was slightly down on depreciation reflecting the forthcoming Hampton site redevelopment and the increased capacity of recent years. The sale of the UK Hampton site transformed our borrowings and the net debt position fell from #9.6m to #2.6m at the year end. Gearing is now a very modest 25% (113%). Interest cover is now 9x (5.6 last year) and operating cash flows continue positive. During 2005 and 2006, as previously announced, we are committed to expenditure of the order of #3.5m on the new factory development. However, we do not expect gearing to exceed 50% on completion of the project in early 2006. International Accounting Standards The Board has reviewed the potential impact of international accounting standards on the Group's financial statements and at this stage does not anticipate any material differences. New Development This project will transform our very old, inefficient network of buildings at Hampton into a single, modern, high-efficiency factory and offices during this year, 2005. After an initial rent-free year, the annual rental of our new factory (fixed for 5 years) will be #590k which we expect to be more than recovered by our lower interest costs and obvious efficiency savings in the new streamlined layouts. The new factory and offices will occupy 88,000 square feet compared with 130,000 square feet now and will be laid out to optimise material flows and high productivity. Clearance of the site to be developed is almost complete and the new build will begin in the next month. Corporate Governance The changing role of Chris Wilkins, after his 2 years excellent and vital role of CEO, to that of 'non-executive mentor' to David Jones will further strengthen the continuity of leadership at this critical time in the company's development. The Board has three non-executive directors having over 10 years' service and technically they do not therefore meet the requirements of the new code. It is our intention in the coming year to review these appointments and, in some cases, seek replacements. The effectiveness and knowledge of the present board are high and we will be reluctant to implement too rapid a change simply for purposes of code adherence. Pension Fund We have addressed the issue of the Pension Fund deficit, in co-operation with the Scheme Trustees, in the already closed defined benefit section and managed to reduce the FRS 17 deficit by #1.0m from #2.9m (after deferred tax credits) to #1.9m now. A significant part of this reduction has been obtained by buying out some 18% of our deferred pensioners, who have now transferred to other schemes, thereby removing both the mortality and investment risk of these. Our total annual contribution paid into the two UK pension schemes is #437k and the number of members in the UK is 150. Dividend The Board has decided to recommend an increased dividend of 4.6p per share to be paid on 31 May 2005 to shareholders on the register at close of business on 22 April 2005, making 7.0p for the year (2003: 6.5p). Employees We have a strong, lean, management team worldwide many of whom have long service within the Group, and other more recent appointments bring new talent and industry experience to our business. We are grateful for their present and future efforts and excellent performance. Without the involvement of all our employees worldwide, these outstanding results would not be possible and we continue to appreciate their commitment to meeting the challenges before them in an ever-changing world. Future The good order input of last year has continued into this new year and the trading is on plan for the year to date. Assuming a continued strong energy sector throughout the whole year, together with the implementation of our present plans, this will lead to another year of satisfactory growth under the leadership of our new Chief Executive Officer, Mr. David Jones, appointed in November 2004. Preliminary Offer As announced in our press release on 14 March 2005, we are in an offer period which may or may not lead to the purchase of the company at a price in the range of 180p - 185p per share. Shareholders and customers may rest assured we are continuing with our key projects as planned and all members of the management team are committed to the business plan for 2005.

Hope we get more than 185p - that's a steal for this booming little co., benefiting hugely from the continuing higher oil price, among many other keen markets. Somebody wants this on the cheap! Don't give it away please directors.

Very quiet here but chart appears to be strengthening again as results time approaches. We already know they've had a bumper year and continuing high oil price underpins current trading. Looking for a breakout by March. Quality play - good old fashioned business selling stuff other businesses want!
