Luxfer Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results

Profit on Operation before tax was $15.2 million in the third quarter of 2012 (2011: $20.4 million). Tax expense was $4.7 million (2011: $6.2 million), giving an effective quarterly rate of tax of 30.9% (2011: 30.4%).

Net Income in the period was $10.5 million (2011: $14.2 million). Adjusting for non-trading exceptional items (being certain acquisition, disposal, rationalization and one-off pension costs), Adjusted net income was $10.2 million (2011: $13.2 million).

Cash Flow and Net Debt

There was a $6.8 million net cash inflow from operating activities in the quarter compared with an inflow of $3.7 million in the third quarter of 2011. Purchases of property, plant and equipment resulted in a cash outflow of $4.2 million (2011: $5.5 million). During the quarter Luxfer Group acquired Dynetek Industries Limited for a cash consideration of $11.0 million (net of cash acquired). In addition, approximately $1 million of acquisition expenses will be paid in the fourth quarter. A third-quarter $3.8 million cash outflow was paid in shareholder dividends.

Luxfer Group had $20.5 million of cash and cash equivalents as at September 30, 2012, compared to an equivalent figure of $8.3 million as at September 30, 2011. As at September 30, 2012, net debt had been reduced to $88.2 million from $129.8 million as at September 30, 2011.

Pro Forma Balance Sheet in Relation to the Initial Public Offering

Included in this report is a pro forma balance sheet to help demonstrate the impact of the Initial Public Offering as if all transactions had occurred as at September 30, 2012, rather than the actual listing date of October 3, 2012, and settlement date of October 9, 2012. On October 31, 2012, we repaid our term loan debt (drawn through our Senior Facilities Agreement) out of the net proceeds of the offering, and in the pro forma analysis, this transaction has also been presented as if it occurred as at September 30, 2012. An explanation of the preparation of this pro forma balance sheet is found in Note 10 to the interim consolidated financial statements.
