INTERIM RESULTS 
 
The Board of Field Systems Designs Holdings plc (FSD), a specialist 
installation and engineering Group providing mechanical and electrical 
installation in the water, power, and waste industries, announces its interim 
results for the six months to 30 November 2018. 
 
OVERVIEW 
 
The results for the first six months of this financial year reflect level 
turnover and reduced profits compared to the prior period, reflecting the 
continued impact of the Group's dealings with its customer on Energy from Waste 
(EfW) projects where commercial difficulties are being encountered. The opening 
order book included two large projects from the EfW sector; these projects were 
on target to be completed during the 2018 financial year however programme 
extension persists. 
 
Gross profit margins remain impacted by the ongoing difficulties in recovering 
value from variations and the costs associated with programme extension, a 
situation which is likely to remain until the projects can be completed, closed 
out, and the deserved recompense received for the efforts expended. 
 
The current AMP6 (Sixth Asset Management Programme in the Water Industry) runs 
until April 2020. The water utilities have now mostly concluded their MEICA 
frameworks with different approaches to their mechanisms and methodologies of 
spend. Sales volumes in the Water Industry have been strong during this period. 
 
Operating profits fell from the comparative period and the consolidated results 
for the six months to 30 November 2018 show group turnover of GBP11.8million 
(2017 GBP12million) with a group profit after tax of GBP46,000 (2017 
GBP168,000). 
 
There remains no pension fund deficit on a FRS102 accounting basis, having now 
met this encouraging milestone, however a significant deficit remains on the 
more stringent actuarial valuation basis whose results have been reviewed by 
the actuary as at March 2018 and are expected to be released shortly. 
 
OUTLOOK 
 
FSD's sales effort remains committed to the water and EfW sectors. The Board 
expect the anticipated value of new orders in the water sector to become more 
uncertain as the remaining time to the end of the current AMP reduces and 
timing of new work in the EfW sector is difficult to predict. The order book 
however remains strong and the balance sheet sound. The directors believe that 
the group remains well positioned for the future.
