Trading Update and Notice of Results

WYG, the global project management and technical consultancy, today provides the following trading update ahead of the Group's financial year end on 31(st) March 2018.

The Board expects revenue and operating profit (before separately disclosed items and share-based payments) for the year to be in line with current market expectations of GBP155m and GBP3.5m respectively. Net debt at the year-end is expected to be broadly in line with market expectations.

Separately disclosed costs (including share based payments and amortisation of intangible assets) for the year are expected to be approximately GBP8.5m. In addition to the increased charge for PII claims we referred to in December 2017, separately disclosed items are also expected to include approximately GBP3.2m of costs relating to the closure of the real estate advisory business we acquired in October 2015, including GBP2.2m relating to the write down of acquired intangible assets.

The Group's order book of secured contracts as at 28 February 2018 was GBP162m.

Our expectations for the financial year ending 31(st) March 2019 are that revenues will be at a similar level to this year and that the business will make a modest improvement in the level of operating profit as we start to see the benefit of actions taken to improve the efficiency and profitability of the business. We will provide a more detailed update on trading in the final results for the year ending 31(st) March 2018 which are expected to be released on 5(th) June 2018.

Douglas McCormick, Chief Executive Officer of WYG, commented:

"Our current trading performance is in line with recent market expectations and we are working hard to move the business to an improved and more sustainable level of profitability for the future. I am encouraged by the progress being achieved through a number of distinct actions we are taking to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our operations. We are therefore maintaining a cautious but progressive outlook for the coming financial year."
