Manchester United Plc 2013 First Quarter Results

Foreign exchange gains or losses are not a cash benefit or charge and could reverse depending on dollar/sterling exchange rate movements. Any gain or loss on a cumulative basis will not be realised until 2017 (or earlier if our senior secured notes are refinanced or redeemed prior to their stated maturity). This exposure to FX movements has been reduced now that the net IPO proceeds (of approximately $110.3m) have been used to reduce our USD denominated senior secured notes.


The tax credit for the quarter was £26.5 million (compared with a credit of £1.4 million in the prior year quarter). Following the transfer of Red Football Shareholder Ltd and its subsidiaries from the controlling shareholders to the Company, the Company has assumed certain US tax bases. A related deferred tax asset has been recognised in respect of the US tax bases in the period, relating to future tax deductions. The amount recognised reflects management’s current best assessment of probable taxable profits in the future against which the tax deductions may be offset. This has been determined on the basis of only those commercial agreements in place at the balance sheet date. An element of this deferred tax asset will unwind during fiscal 2013. The potential deferred tax asset available, but which currently remains unrecognised, amounts to at least £60m and will be recognised when key commercial contracts are renewed or replaced.

Profit/(loss) for the period from continuing operations

Profit for the period from continuing operations for the quarter increased to £20.5 million, compared to a loss in the prior year quarter of £5.0 million.

Cash flows

Cash generated from operating activities for the quarter were £9.3 million, an increase of £10.9 million compared to £1.6 million cash used in the prior year quarter.

Capital expenditures on property, plant and equipment and investment property for the quarter were £3.4 million, a decrease of £10.4 million compared to £13.8 million in the prior year quarter. Expenditure in the current year quarter mainly related to the redevelopment of the First Team’s training facility at Carrington. In the prior year quarter we acquired investment properties amounting to £8.1m around the Old Trafford stadium.
