Management report

 

Results

In the first half of our financial year, there was considerable volatility both in fixed income and equity markets caused by the deepening debt crises in the US and Europe. This culminated in a steep fall in stock markets in August, from which Caledonia was not immune. Our net asset value per share fell by 13% over the six months to 30 September 2011, broadly in line with the FTSE All-Share, our benchmark index. On the more relevant total return basis, Caledonia trailed the index by 0.5% due to its lower income characteristics, a yield gap that we intend to close as our recently established Income & Growth pool of investments develops.

 

We have continued with the execution of the strategy as reported in our March 2011 annual report. We invested £124m during the period under review, a large part of which went into the Income & Growth pool. This pool is designed specifically to bolster the yield from our portfolio to enable us in turn to provide a growing source of income for our shareholders. We also made further investments into two of our Asian holdings in line with our strategy of increasing our overall exposure to this region. The company ended the period with a small net debt position of £13m, having drawn £15m of its £100m term facilities.

 

We have also continued to reduce the absolute number of holdings in the portfolio, excluding the Income & Growth pool, by selling non-core and sub-scale investments. Overall, we realised £39m during the period from a mixture of fund distributions and the sale of our smaller investments in Vietnam and India.

Investment portfolio

Quoted Three of our larger quoted companies, Close Brothers, Avanti Communications and Melrose Resources, which represent over half of the value of the Quoted pool, were particularly hard hit by market sentiment. This contributed to a reduction in value of £88m and a negative total return of 19.8%. Caledonia has traditionally taken large stakes in its investee companies, a by-product of which is a relatively high level of portfolio volatility. We remain confident that these companies have a bright future and have a much higher intrinsic value than currently being awarded by the market. On the other hand, we took advantage of the opportunities presented by fluctuating markets to build positions in several other companies which we have been tracking, but hitherto were unwilling to invest in, due to valuation parameters.

 

Unquoted Overall, the Unquoted pool had a negative total return of 4.3%, mainly reflecting reduced comparator multiples used in the valuation process. There were some notably good operational performances both from our directly held industrial companies, such as TGE Marine and Sterling Industries, which continue to trade strongly, and from those owned by Cobepa, the Belgian investment company. The number of new investment opportunities we are being shown remains at a reasonable level and we continue to progress with the sale of several existing portfolio companies.

 

Asia The Asia pool had a negative total return of 10.4%. The majority of our Asian investments are concentrated in India where, by comparison, the Sensex index fell by 15.4% over the same timeframe. A further £19m was invested into the Asia pool, including £6m to support a placing by Eredene Capital, £5m in Jardine Matheson and £4m in a follow-on investment in Marwadi, the Gujarat-based broking business. Dewan Housing Finance and First Blue, in both of which we are a shareholder, announced merger terms and have scheduled completion for Q2 2012, which will consolidate Dewan's position as the third largest private sector home finance business in the Indian market. In China, our investment in Capital Today, the private equity fund, showed a useful advance driven by the success of JingDong, the Chinese online retailer.

 

Property The Property pool provided a useful hedge to the volatile equity markets, with a more modest negative total return of 2.7%. In line with our strategic aims, we have made good progress in selling some of the historic smaller properties held in Edinmore, our wholly-owned subsidiary.

 

Funds The Funds pool had a negative total return of 9.0%. A total of £13m was invested into the Funds pool during the period and we realised £20m, of which £11m came from the sale of MeetingZone by the Nova Springboard fund, the buyout of which we backed in 2006. British Empire Securities, which makes up a large part of the value of the Funds pool, fell by 15% during the period, being treated particularly harshly by the rapid fall in markets in August. The opportunities presented by current market conditions should however suit its value oriented investment style.

 

Income & Growth The gradual investment of surplus liquidity into a pool of high quality large cap stocks with growth prospects in both dividends and earnings has been maintained with a further £71m being invested over the six month period. The pool has a wide geographic spread, with 50% exposed to Europe, 25% to the US and 25% to Asia-Pacific and South America. It has a running yield of 5%, which is marginally ahead of our strategic objective. The timeframe since the establishment of this pool is too short to provide meaningful comparison against benchmarks, especially as little income has accrued to date, though, with a negative total return for the period of 12.9% we are encouraged by early signs of outperformance in these volatile markets. Within the pool, there is a good spread of high quality global companies from the pharmaceutical, utility, telecommunications and food and beverage sectors. These are complemented by a selection of higher growth companies in Asia, Australia and Brazil within the financial and infrastructure sectors. The aim is for the portfolio to comprise about 40 to 45 companies and its composition will be reasonably stable once stock selection has been finalised. We would envisage increasing the size of this pool to about 15% of Caledonia's net assets over the next two years, in line with our strategy.

 

Board changes

John May, an executive director of Caledonia since 2003, retired from the Board on 30 September 2011. John made a very significant contribution to the company over these eight years, both as a member of the Board and as a director of a number of our investee companies. On behalf of the Board, we would like to record our grateful thanks for all that he has done for Caledonia and its shareholders.

 

We were pleased to appoint Rod Kent and Robert Woods as additional independent non-executive directors on 1 October and 1 November 2011 respectively. Each brings a wealth of experience to our Board.

 

Rod was Managing Director of Close Brothers for 28 years until 2002 and then a non-executive director and latterly Chairman until 2008. He has also been Chairman of M&G, Bradford & Bingley and BT Pension Trustees, and Senior Independent Director of Whitbread. He is currently a non-executive director of Grosvenor Group and a Governor of the Wellcome Trust.

 

Robert spent his career at P&O, where he was CEO from 2004 until 2006. He has also been a non-executive director of Cathay Pacific Airways and is currently Chairman of P&O Ferries, Southampton Container Terminal, Tilbury Container Services and the Mission to Seafarers, as well as a non-executive director of John Swire and Sons.

 

Dividend

The directors have declared an interim dividend of 11.7p per share. This represents an increase of 5.4% over the equivalent dividend last year and will be paid on 5 January 2012.

 

Outlook

The near term story will continue to be dominated by the problems of the eurozone. Until there is a clear and achievable solution to the debt crises, investors will continue to be subjected to unusually large movements in markets. This, combined with the lack of clarity over the health of the world economy provides a difficult backdrop against which to invest. However, we will remain disciplined in only allocating capital to companies which have strong management and good prospects at attractive valuations.

Risks and uncertainties

 

Caledonia has a risk management framework that provides a structured process for identifying, assessing and managing risks associated with the company's business objectives and strategy.

 

The principal risks and uncertainties faced by the company are set out in the business review section of Caledonia's annual report 2011. External risks arise from political, legal, regulatory and economic changes. Strategic risks arise from the conception, design and implementation of the company's business model. Investment risk occurs in relation to specific investment decisions, subsequent performance or concentration of exposure. Treasury and funding risks arise from counterparties, uncertainty in market prices and rates and liquidity availability. Operational risks arise from potentially inadequate or failed controls, processes, people or systems.

 

The principal risks and uncertainties identified in the annual report 2011 remain unchanged and each of them has the potential to affect the company's results during the remainder of the year ending 31 March 2012.

 

Caledonia aims to manage risk by:

-

diversifying the portfolio by sector and geography

-

ensuring access to relevant information from investee companies, usually through board representation

-

managing cash and borrowings to ensure that liquidity is available to meet investment and operating needs

-

reducing counterparty risk by limiting maximum aggregate exposures.

 

Going concern

The factors likely to affect the company's ability to continue as a going concern were set out in the annual report 2011. As at 30 September 2011, there have been no significant changes to these factors. Having reviewed the company's forecasts and other relevant evidence, the directors have a reasonable expectation that the company and the group have adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the half-year condensed financial statements.

 

 

Directors' responsibility statement

 

We confirm that to the best of our knowledge:

-

the condensed set of financial statements, which has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 'Interim Financial Reporting', gives a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit or loss of the company, as required by DTR 4.2.4R of the 'Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules';

-

the interim management report includes a fair review of the information required by:

 

-

DTR 4.2.7R of the 'Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules', being an indication of important events that have occurred during the first six months of the financial year and their impact on the condensed set of financial statements and a description of the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the financial year

 

-

DTR 4.2.8R of the 'Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules', being related parties transactions that have taken place in the first six months of the current financial year and that have materially affected the financial position or the performance of the enterprise during that period and any changes in the related parties transactions described in the last annual report that could have a material effect on the financial position or performance of the enterprise in the first six months of the current financial year.

Independent review report

to Caledonia Investments plc

 

Introduction

We have been engaged by the company to review the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 September 2011, which comprises the condensed statement of comprehensive income, the condensed statement of financial position, the condensed statement of changes in equity, the condensed statement of cash flows and related notes 1 to 11 on a company and group basis. We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly financial report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed set of financial statements.

 

This report is made solely to the company in accordance with the terms of our engagement to assist the company in meeting the requirements of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules (the 'DTR') of the UK's Financial Services Authority (the 'UK FSA'). Our review has been undertaken so that we might state to the company those matters we are required to state to it in this report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company, for our review work, for this report, or for the conclusions we have reached.

 

Directors' responsibilities

The half-yearly financial report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly financial report in accordance with the DTR of the UK FSA.

 

As disclosed in note 2, the annual financial statements of the company are prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the EU. The condensed set of financial statements included in this half-yearly financial report has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting, as adopted by the EU.

 

Our responsibility

Our responsibility is to express to the company a conclusion on the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report based on our review.

 

Scope of review

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410 'Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity' issued by the Auditing Practices Board for use in the UK. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

 

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the condensed set of financial statements in the half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 September 2011 is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34 as adopted by the EU and the DTR of the UK FSA.

A copy of the statutory accounts for the year ended 31 March 2011 has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.

2. Accounting policies

Basis of accounting

This condensed set of financial statements has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 'Interim Financial Reporting' and should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2011, which were prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.

 

The condensed company financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the recommendations of the SORP issued by the Association of Investment Companies.

 

Going concern

The directors have assessed the risks facing the group and consider that it has adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, they continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the half-year condensed set of financial statements.

 

Changes in accounting policies

The directors have declared an interim dividend for the year ending 31 March 2012 of 11.7p per share, totalling £6.7m, which has not been included as a liability in this condensed set of financial statements. This dividend will be payable on 5 January 2012 to holders of shares on the register on 9 December 2011. The ex‑div date will be 7 December 2011.

 

4. Net asset value per share

The company's undiluted net asset value per share is based on the net assets of the company at the period end and on the number of shares in issue at the period end less shares held by the Caledonia Investments plc Employee Share Trust, shares held by a subsidiary, shares accounted as held in treasury and shares subject to an irrevocable mandate given to J.P. Morgan Securities to purchase the company's shares for cancellation during the close period between the period end and the publication of the half-year results.

 

The company's diluted net asset value per share assumes the re-issue of shares accounted as held in treasury at the closing mid-market price on the reporting date, the exercise of all outstanding in-the-money share options and the calling of deferred bonus awards.

 

5. Impairment of assets

During the period, the group recognised impairments of £1.3m (30 September 2010 - £1.5m and 31 March 2011 - £14.9m).

 

6. Borrowings

During the period, the company drew £15.0m of its £100m term facilities, expiring in July 2013.

 

The group repaid £10.0m of its bank facilities on expiry.

 

7. Provisions

During the period, the company recognised a £5.0m investment provision relating to a bank guarantee provided for subsidiary borrowings (30 September 2010 - £nil and 31 March 2011 - £10.0m).

 

In addition, the company utilised £10.0m of the provision made in 2011, in settlement of a guarantee obligations.

 

8. Share capital

During the period, the company purchased 70,000 of its own shares for £1.1m, which were subsequently cancelled, and its Employee Share Trust sold 36,940 shares for £0.6m and purchased 36,940 shares for £0.7m in connection with the exercise of share options. In the six months ended 30 September 2010 and year ended 31 March 2011, the company purchased 9,000 of its own shares for £0.2m, which it held in treasury. In the same periods, purchases by the Employee Share Trust were immaterial.

 

At 30 September 2011, the company had given an irrevocable instruction to J.P. Morgan Securities for the duration of its subsequent close period to purchase up to £2.0m of the company's own shares on its behalf for subsequent cancellation. At 30 September 2010 and 31 March 2011, similar instructions were issued to purchase up to £2.0m of the company's own shares on its behalf for holding in treasury. Provisions were made in respect of each of these instructions and were released after the respective close periods without any shares being bought.

 

9. Capital commitments

On 30 September 2011, the company had undrawn fund and other commitments totalling £79.4m (30 September 2010 - £85.3m and 31 March 2011 - £84.9m).

 

10. Related parties

Caledonia Group Services Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, provides management services to the company. During the period, £5.5m was charged to the company (30 September 2010 - £6.2m and 31 March 2011 - £9.1m).

 

11. Operating segments

The chief operating decision maker has been identified as the Executive Committee, which reviews the company's internal reporting in order to assess performance and allocate resources. Management has determined the operating segments based on these reports.

 

The performance of operating segments is assessed on a measure of company total revenue, principally comprising gains and losses on investments and derivatives hedging those investments and investment income. Reportable profit or loss is after 'Treasury income' and 'Other items', which comprise management and other expenses and provisions. Reportable assets equate to the company's net asset value.

 

Reportable results and assets view subsidiaries and joint ventures as investments held at fair value and include liabilities of the company. To reconcile to group profit or loss and total assets, 'Eliminations' comprise the difference between the aggregate fair value and total assets of subsidiaries and joint ventures and the company's liabilities.
