John Rishton, Chief Executive, said:

"Rolls-Royce performed well in 2011, and at the year-end had a record order
book, record underlying revenue and record underlying profit. We continue to
benefit from a broad portfolio, a large and growing customer base and access to
markets where demand remains strong for our products and services.

"Our order book gives us good visibility of future revenues and demonstrates
the confidence our customers have in us.  

"We see opportunities for profitable growth across our portfolio. In
particular, the acquisition of Tognum, that we have made in partnership with
Daimler, adds significantly to the breadth of our portfolio and will accelerate
growth.

"For 2012 we expect good growth in both underlying revenue and underlying
profit with cash flow around breakeven as we continue to invest in future
growth."

Group Overview

Rolls-Royce continued to perform well in 2011. Our order book grew to £62.2bn,
underlying revenue increased to £11.3bn and underlying profit rose to £1.16bn.
This strong performance demonstrates the increasing resilience of our business
and underpins our confidence for the future which is reflected in a final
payment to shareholders of 10.6 pence per share, bringing the full year payment
to 17.5 pence per share.

Rolls-Royce is a long-term business. We invest in products, systems and
services that take many years to develop but then have life cycles that last
for decades. The Group has consistently invested in future growth and we
continue to develop technology and expand capacity in order to meet our
customers' current and future needs. This consistent record of long-term
investment has given Rolls-Royce a broad portfolio, a strong market position
and access to world markets, creating a powerful platform for future growth.

This disciplined application of a long-term strategy has enabled Rolls-Royce to
grow its underlying revenue, profit and order book consistently over a decade.
This has been achieved despite the financial crisis of 2008, recessions in
Europe and the USA and significant economic and social turmoil. We have doubled
our revenues within the past decade and expect to double them again in the
coming ten years through organic growth alone.

To fulfil our record order book, we continue to invest in operational capacity.
During 2011, we opened a major new facility at Crosspointe, in Virginia USA,
where we are now manufacturing gas turbine discs. We completed the construction
of a 65,000 sq metre facility at Seletar in Singapore where, for the first time
outside the UK, we will manufacture wide-chord fan blades and assemble and test
Trent engines. We also continued to add to our network of Marine service
centres during the year, opening or expanding sites in the Netherlands, Poland,
Namibia, Germany and Hong Kong. These investments and others across the
portfolio add to our capacity and increase productivity.

Close collaboration with our suppliers is critical to our continued success.
Around 70 per cent of our manufacturing is conducted within our supply chain.
Our partners and suppliers are also investing significantly to deliver future
growth and improve productivity.

During 2011, we took three strategic actions that will further strengthen our
position and underpin long-term growth. The first was our acquisition of the
German industrial engines group Tognum, that we made in a joint offer with
Daimler. It brings together highly complementary product and technology
portfolios and creates significant new opportunities for our Marine and Energy
businesses. Second, we signed an exclusive deal to develop an enhanced Trent
XWB that will power the long-range Airbus A350-1000 aircraft. Third, we agreed
to sell our equity stake in IAE to Pratt & Whitney, at the same time announcing
our intention to form a new joint venture to develop engines for the next
generation of mid-size aircraft. This agreement builds on a long and successful
partnership with Pratt & Whitney in this segment and charts a clear course for
our future in this important market.

Progress was evident in each of our business segments in 2011.

In Civil Aerospace good order intake accompanied strong growth in underlying
revenue and profit. We celebrated the first commercial flight of the Boeing 787
Dreamliner powered by Trent 1000 engines. The Trent XWB engine programme for
the Airbus A350 progressed well, with over 1,500 test hours completed. Our
BR725 engine, developed for Gulfstream's new flagship executive jet, the
Gulfstream G650, is due to enter service in 2012.

Our Defence Aerospace business performed well despite the pressure on defence
spending in Europe and the USA. We continue to benefit from the diversity of
our portfolio and our access to emerging markets. Our LiftFan™ system for the
F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) continued to make good progress
during intensive flight tests that included multiple take offs and vertical
landings on board the aircraft carrier USS Wasp. The TP400 engine for the
Airbus A400M is on course to enter service in 2013.

While the underlying profit generated by the Marine business was broadly flat,
original equipment (OE) revenue failed to meet our expectations as some
offshore customers deferred investment decisions beyond 2011. Set against this,
revenue from services grew strongly as the business benefited from the
expansion of our network of service centres and the growth of the fleet
equipped with our systems. During the year, we received an order to power a
further ten US Navy Littoral Combat Ships, our largest ever surface fleet
order. We also secured the first orders for our award winning Environship, a
cargo vessel powered by liquid natural gas.

In Energy, underlying profit fell, primarily due to our investment in Civil
Nuclear and revenues declined, reflecting  weak demand for gas turbine power
generation. However, strong demand from the oil and gas industry drove a
significant increase in the order book. This included our biggest ever single
contract, to supply Petrobras, Brazil's leading oil company, with 32 gas
turbine power generators for its offshore operations.

Trading Summary

Underlying revenue

The Group's underlying revenue increased four per cent to £11.3bn. This
includes a nine per cent growth in services revenue to £6.0bn that more than
offset a one per cent reduction in OE revenue to £5.3bn. OE performance
included strong 18 per cent growth in Civil Aerospace offset by a greater than
anticipated reduction of 23 per cent in Marine OE revenue.

Underlying services revenue continues to represent more than half (53 per cent)
of the Group's revenue. In 2011, we achieved growth in services revenue in each
of our businesses as we continue to benefit from the growth in our installed
base and the expansion of our services network. Defence Aerospace income
included contract termination settlements resulting from the Strategic Defence
and Security Review (SDSR) of the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Underlying profit

Underlying profit before tax increased 21 per cent to £1.16bn. This was due to
a better mix between OE and services, an improvement in productivity resulting
from the focus on cost, net foreign exchange (FX) benefits of £54m including an
eight cent improvement in the achieved rate on selling USD income. In addition
there was a benefit of £30m from Tognum net of the costs of the acquisition and
a £60m benefit from the SDSR settlements referred to above. 

Cash and liquidity

The reported net cash position was £223m after the impact of the acquisition of
Tognum and R Brooks Associates totalling £1.5bn. Excluding these acquisitions
and FX translation there was a cash inflow of £210m. The Group retains a strong
balance sheet with debt maturities well spread and total liquidity of £2.5bn.

Tognum

The Group's joint venture with Daimler now owns over 99 per cent of Tognum AG
for which Rolls-Royce paid a cash consideration of £1.5bn in 2011. This joint
venture investment made a £30m net contribution to underlying profit before tax
but did not impact the Group's 2011 revenues.

International Aero Engines (IAE)

The Group's proposed sale of its 32.5 per cent shareholding in IAE is subject
to regulatory approval and did not impact 2011 financial performance. 
Rolls-Royce will continue to play an active role as a first tier supplier of
high pressure compressors and fan blades and remains responsible for the final
assembly of 50 per cent of the production engines. The announced new joint
venture with Pratt & Whitney to develop an engine to power the next generation
of mid-size aircraft is also subject to regulatory approval and had no effect
on 2011 financial performance.

Group Prospects

Our consistent strategy, which has been pursued over many years, has created a
broad and balanced portfolio and established a strong financial position.
Despite continued macroeconomic uncertainty, our record order book and strong
market positions underpin our confidence in the future. The increasing
resilience of the business has enabled Rolls-Royce consistently to grow its
underlying revenue, underlying profit and order book in spite of the
significant macro economic turbulence of recent years.

In 2012 the Group expects to see good growth in underlying revenue and
underlying profit with a cash flow around breakeven as we continue to invest
for future growth, excluding the impact of the Tognum acquisition and the
proposed IAE transaction.

In Civil Aerospace, we anticipate good growth in underlying revenue and strong
growth in underlying profit. In Defence Aerospace we expect modest growth in
underlying revenue and profit. In Marine we expect a modest increase in
underlying revenue, with underlying profit broadly flat. And in Energy we see
growth in underlying revenue and some improvement in underlying profit.

The order book increased by seven per cent, including new orders of £11.0bn.
The order book contains over 5,000 engines that will add around 250m pounds of
installed thrust to our current installed base of 400m pounds of thrust. During
2011 we secured orders for more than 200 Trents, among the most significant
were:

- Trent XWB engines for up to 60 Airbus A350 XWBs from AirFrance KLM Group.
- Trent 1000 engines for six Boeing 787s from Oman Air.
- Trent 900 engines for six Airbus A380s from Skymark Airlines and for six A380s
  from Asiana.
- Trent 700 engines for 15 Airbus A330s from Singapore Airlines and for 15 A330s
  from Cathay Pacific.

Revenue increased by 13 per cent. OE revenue grew 18 per cent, largely as a
result of higher deliveries of widebody and corporate and regional engines.
Services revenue grew by 10 per cent. This was due to growth in TotalCare
revenue during the year and a recovery in time and materials.

Profit increased by 27 per cent due to increased volume, improving
productivity, FX benefits and the non-recurrence of a one-off charge. This
improvement was partially offset by higher R&D charges and the launch costs
associated with major new programmes.

Portfolio

- In June, Rolls-Royce announced an exclusive agreement to produce a higher
  thrust version of the Trent XWB, to offer increased range and capacity for the
  Airbus A350-1000. 

- In September, Rolls-Royce powered the entry into service of the Boeing 787
  Dreamliner with launch customer All Nippon Airways (ANA).

- In October 2011 we announced a new joint venture with Pratt & Whitney to
  develop engines for future generation mid-size aircraft. We also agreed to sell
  our shareholding in IAE.

We delivered production BR725 engines for the Gulfstream 650 that is due to
enter service in 2012.

The order book declined by seven per cent as OE deliveries exceeded order
intake, reflecting the pressures on defence budgets in Europe and the USA.
However, new orders of £1.8bn in the year demonstrate that there are still
opportunities for growth in both traditional and in developing markets.
Significant orders included:

- Two major service contracts, worth almost US$250m for AE2100 engines powering
  C-130J military transport aircraft for the US and UK armed forces.
- A US$100m MissionCare contract from the US Department of Defence to provide
  support for F405 (Adour) engines on T-45 training aircraft.

Revenue grew by five per cent benefiting from increased OE deliveries of eight
per cent, reflecting LiftSystem, AirTanker, and Military Transport production
increases, and a three per cent increase in services revenue, principally due
to the impact of the SDSR settlement and increases in fleet sizes for C-130J
and V-22 aircraft. 

Profit grew by 22 per cent as a result of increased revenue, cost reduction
programmes and the £60m benefit of the SDSR settlement.

Portfolio

- In February, funding for the development programme of the F136 engine for the
  JSF in which Rolls-Royce was a 40 per cent partner, was terminated by the US
  Department of Defense.

- In May, the TP400 engine for the Airbus A400M military transport aircraft
  received civil certification from European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The
  programme has amassed over 8,000 flying hours as part of the flight test
  programme. Deliveries for the first production engines are due to begin in 2012
  as part of the initial order of 180 aircraft.

- In the combat sector, the LiftSystem for the STOVL variant of the JSF achieved
  its 'Initial Service Release'. In October, two F-35B aircraft accomplished 72
  short take-offs and vertical landings on the USS Wasp during sea trials. In
  January 2012, probationary status was lifted for the F-35B and the first STOVL
  aircraft were delivered to the customer.

- The Eurofighter Typhoon was deployed on combat operations for the first time as
  part of the NATO operation in Libya, displaying outstanding levels of
  performance and reliability. During 2011, we delivered the 750th EJ200 engine
  on behalf of Eurojet for the Eurofighter programme.

The order book declined by eight per cent. However new order intake during the
year improved by 15 per cent to £2.1bn providing some evidence of recovering
demand. Significant systems and equipment orders during the period included:

- MT30 gas turbines and water jets for a ten vessel contract for the US Navy
  Littoral Combat Ship.
- First orders for the award-winning Environship, including two vessels for
  Norway's Nor Lines AS.
- 60 water jets for a new fleet of 20 Fast Patrol Vessels for the Indian Coast
  Guard.
- An order to design and equip two anchor handling vessels for Farstad Shipping
  in Norway.

Revenue declined by 12 per cent due to a 23 per cent decline in OE revenue that
was partially offset by a nine per cent improvement in service revenue. The
recovery in OE that had been expected in the second half of the year did not
materialise as customer investment decisions were deferred. The improved
service revenue was driven by the expansion of our network of marine supply
centres and the growth of our installed fleet.

Profit declined by three per cent relative to a fall in revenue of 12 per cent
reflecting an improved revenue mix and an increased focus on costs and
operational performance.

Portfolio

- In May, the UK Government announced its decision to replace the UK's Vanguard
  class nuclear submarines with a new design of submarine utilising our
  Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) Generation 3 reactor technology.

- In September, we announced the success of our joint tender offer for Tognum.
  This acquisition brings together highly complementary product and technology
  sets and represents an important strategic step in the long-term development of
  the business.

- We continue to invest in our service capability and capacity, with customer
  training centres opening in Norway and Singapore, and service centres opened or
  expanded in Namibia, the Netherlands, Poland, Germany and Hong Kong.

The order book increased by 28 per cent, driven by significant demand in the
oil and gas industry. New orders of £1.5bn included a number of significant
contracts:

- 32 RB211 gas turbines for offshore application in support of Petrobras. 
  This US$650m contract is the largest signed by the Energy business.
- Six RB211 compressor units for Petro China's WEPP Line 2 East project.
- Eight Bergen engines for power generation in Bangladesh - 82 now sold in
  Bangladesh.
- A €250m contract with EDF to supply instrumentation and control (I&C)
  technologies to the world's largest reactor upgrade programme, being carried
  out in France.

Revenue declined by three per cent largely due to the phasing of OE deliveries
in power generation. Demand for aftermarket products and services continue to
grow with an increase of ten per cent.

Profit fell by 11 per cent as a result of lower revenue and investment in the
future growth of our Civil Nuclear business. 

Portfolio

- In February 2011, we announced plans for the construction of a new
  purpose-built gas turbine package, assembly and test facility in Rio de
  Janeiro, Brazil. The facility, expected to become operational in the first
  quarter of 2013, will strengthen our support of Petrobras and other customers
  in the rapidly expanding offshore market in Brazil.

- As in the Marine business, Energy will benefit from the joint acquisition of
  Tognum. By combining our medium-speed diesel and gas Bergen engines business
  with Tognum's high-speed reciprocating engines and systems capabilities, we
  have significantly enhanced our core product portfolio and global network of
  sales and service facilities.

We continued to build our capability in the Civil Nuclear sector, with a number
of important milestones reached during the year.

- A cooperation agreement was signed with Areva for the manufacture of complex
  components for the first European Pressurised Reactors to be built in the UK.

- Enhanced MoUs were agreed with Nuclear Power Delivery UK,EDF and Rosatom.

- We acquired the US-based R.Brooks Associates, a world leader in remote
  inspection.

- Underlying revenue and underlying profit before financing costs and taxation
  are discussed in the relevant business sections.

- Underlying financing costs declined by 11 per cent to £49m, including a small
  reduction in financial Risk & Revenue Sharing Partners (RRSP) costs and lower
  funding costs due to the settlement of the Group's €750m Eurobond during the
  year.

- Underlying taxation was £261m, an underlying tax rate of 22.6 per cent compared
  with 24.7 per cent in 2010. This reduction reflects increased profits from
  joint ventures (which are accounted for on post-tax basis) and some adjustments
  to prior year estimates.

- Underlying EPS increased by 25 per cent to 48.54 pence, broadly in line with
  the increase in the underlying profit after tax.

- Payments to shareholders At the AGM on May 4, 2012, the directors will
  recommend an issue of 106 C Shares with a total nominal value of 10.6 pence for 
  each ordinary share. The final payment is payable on July 4, 2012 to
  shareholders on the register on April 27, 2012 and the final day of trading
  with entitlement to C Shares is April 24, 2012.  Together with the interim
  issue on January 3, 2012 of 69 C Shares for each ordinary share with a total
  nominal value of 6.9 pence, this is the equivalent of a total annual payment to
  ordinary shareholders of 17.5 pence for each ordinary share.

  The payment to shareholders will, as before, be made in the form of redeemable
  C Shares which shareholders may either choose to retain or redeem for a cash
  equivalent.  The Registrar, on behalf of the Company, operates a C Share
  Reinvestment Plan (CRIP) and can, on behalf of shareholders, purchase ordinary
  shares from the market rather than delivering a cash payment.  Shareholders
  wishing to redeem their C Shares or else redeem and participate in the CRIP
  must ensure that their instructions are lodged with the Registrar,
  Computershare Investor Services Plc, no later than 5pm on Friday June 1, 2012.

- Other operating income relates to programme receipts from RRSPs, which
  reimburse past R&D costs. These receipts decreased by 20 per cent in 2011 due
  to the phasing of major programmes.

- Net R&D charged to the income statement increased by 10 per cent to £463m. The
  Group recruited an additional 1,000 engineers to develop the products of the
  future and to help continue to improve the in-service performance of the
  existing installed base of products. This investment and the 29 per cent
  increase in capital expenditure to £467m will prepare our infrastructure and
  global supply chain for significant growth in the next decade. The Group
  continues to expect net R&D investment to remain within four to five per cent
  of Group underlying revenue.

- Foreign exchange rate movements influence the reported income statement, the
  cash flow and closing net cash balance. The average and spot rates for the
  principal trading currencies of the Group are shown in the table below:

- Intangible assets relate to goodwill, certification costs, participation fees,
  development expenditure, recoverable engine costs, software and other costs
  that represent long-term assets of the Group. In aggregate, these assets
  remained broadly unchanged at £2.9bn: this was largely due to increased
  development, certification and software costs being offset by the 
  reclassification of V2500 assets on the balance sheet as "Assets held for
  sale". The carrying values of the intangible assets are assessed for impairment
  against the present value of forecast cash flows generated by the intangible
  asset. The principal risks remain: reductions in assumed market share;
  programme timings; increases in unit cost assumptions; and adverse movements in
  discount rates. There have been no impairments in 2011. Further details are
  given in note 6 of the condensed financial statements.

- Property, plant and equipment increased by nine per cent to £2.3bn due to the
  ongoing development and refreshment of facilities and tooling as the Group
  prepares for increased production volumes.

- Net post-retirement scheme deficits decreased 54 per cent to £397m, including:
  (i) the impact of the change in pensions' indexing to CPI in the UK  (£130m);
  (ii) revised healthcare benefits in certain overseas schemes (£74m); and (iii)
  the reduction in discount rates having a larger impact on the value of the
  assets than the obligations (calculated on an IAS 19 basis). Overall funding
  across the schemes has improved in recent years as the Group has improved
  funding of the schemes with an increasingly lower risk investment strategy that
  reduces volatility going forward and enables the funding position to remain
  stable: interest rate and inflation risks are largely hedged; exposure to
  equities has reduced to around 20 per cent of scheme assets, this has been
  achieved against the headwind of increasing life expectancy assumptions. In
  2011, the Group made further arrangements to reduce volatility and enable
  future funding to be predicted with more certainty. A longevity swap was
  transacted with a third party to eliminate the risk of increasing life
  expectancy of pensioners in the largest UK defined benefit scheme. No
  significant change expected to the ongoing funding levels of the UK pension
  schemes in 2012.

- Net funds reduced to £223m largely due to the £1.5bn consideration paid during
  the year for the Group's shared investment in Tognum AG. As a result, average
  net funds fell by £640m to £320m (£805m excluding acquisitions). The Group
  continues to have access to good liquidity with £1.2bn undrawn committed
  facilities and bond proceeds of £1.1bn, providing total liquidity of £2.5bn
  when net funds of £223m are taken into consideration. 

- Investment - joint ventures and associates increased in the year as a result of
  the investment in Tognum.

- Assets held for sale represent the assets and liabilities expected to be
  derecognised as a result of the anticipated restructuring of IAE.

- Provisions largely relate to warranties and guarantees provided to secure the
  sale of OE and services. These provisions reduced modestly during the year.

- Net financial assets and liabilities relate to financial RRSPs and the fair
  value of foreign exchange, commodity and interest rate contracts, set out in 
  detail in note 7 to the condensed financial statements.  The change largely
  reflects the impact of the change in the GBP/USD exchange rate on the valuation
  of foreign exchange contracts.

- The USD hedge book increased five per cent to US$22.0bn. This represents around
  four and a half years of net exposure and has an average book rate of £1 to
  US$1.60. Current forward market exchange rates are similar to current average
  book rates.

- Net TotalCare assets relate to Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) contracts in
  the Civil Aerospace business, including the flagship services product
  TotalCare. These assets represent the timing difference between the recognition
  of income and costs in the income statement and cash receipts and payments.

- Customer financing facilitates the sale of OE and services by providing
  financing support to certain customers. Where such support is provided by the
  Group, it is generally to customers of the Civil Aerospace business and takes
  the form of various types of credit and asset value guarantees. These exposures
  produce contingent liabilities that are outlined in note 10 to the condensed
  financial statements. The contingent liabilities represent the maximum
  aggregate discounted gross and net exposure in respect of delivered aircraft,
  regardless of the point in time at which such exposures may arise. During 2011,
  the Group's exposure remained stable with gross and net exposures of £612m and
  £124m respectively. As has been well publicised, some banks that have been
  active in recent years in providing funds for aircraft financing have chosen
  during 2011 to substantially reduce their exposure in this market segment.
  Although this may have some effect on the terms and pricing of new aircraft
  finance transactions in the near future, the Group expects that other providers
  of USD funding and ongoing support from the export credit agencies will largely
  fill the gap left by these banks.
 
 

Group 2012 Guidance

Excluding the impact of the Tognum acquisition and the proposed IAE
transaction, in 2012 the Group expects to see good growth in underlying revenue
and underlying profit with a cash flow around breakeven as we continue to
invest for future growth.

In Civil Aerospace, we anticipate good growth in underlying revenue and strong
growth in underlying profit. In Defence Aerospace we expect modest growth in
underlying revenue and profit. In Marine we expect a modest increase in
underlying revenue, with underlying profit broadly flat. And in Energy we see
growth in revenue and some improvement in profit.

Other relevant data

- Foreign exchange: neutral.

- R&D: a modest increase in expenditure combined with lower net capitalisation
  and higher amortisation due to the phasing of new programmes.

- Taxation: the underlying tax rate is expected to be around 24 per cent.

- Capital expenditure: a modest increase, including increased investment in IT.

- Intangible assets: modest increase compared with 2011 due to a modest increase
  in recoverable engine costs partially offset by a decrease in development costs
  due to the phasing of new programmes.

- Property, plant and equipment: modest increase compared with 2011 as we
  continue to invest in capability and infrastructure.

- Pensions: no material changes expected to funding levels.

Tognum and IAE transactions

- Tognum is expected to contribute in the first half to the Group's share of
  results of joint ventures and associates. Tognum's results are expected to be
  fully consolidated around the half year with Daimler's 50 per cent share of the
  result recorded as a non-controlling interest. For 2012, Tognum will be
  reported as a separate segment. As Tognum remains a listed company, the Group
  is not permitted to provide guidance at this time. Tognum will issue their
  preliminary results on 8 March, 2012.

- The sale of the Group's 32.5 per cent shareholding in IAE is expected to
  receive regulatory approval during the first half of 2012, at which time the
  initial cash consideration of $1.5bn will be received. For the first full year
  following settlement, the impact of the sale on subsequent trading will have a
  small negative effect on underlying revenue and a positive effect of around £
  140m on underlying profit. The impact on the order book will be a reduction of
  around £4bn.

  the former holding company of the Group, and its shareholders under Part 26 of
  the Companies Act 2006, and as sanctioned by the High Court, all the issued
  ordinary shares in that company were cancelled and the same number of new
  ordinary shares were issued to Rolls-Royce Holdings plc in consideration for
  the allotment to shareholders of one ordinary share in Rolls-Royce Holdings plc
  for each ordinary share in Rolls-Royce Group plc held on the record date (May
  20, 2011).  Pursuant to the scheme of arrangement, 1,872,188,709 ordinary
  shares of 150 pence were issued.  As required by Section 612 of the Companies
  Act 2006, no share premium was recognised.

  reducing the nominal value of the ordinary shares from 150 pence to 20 pence as
  sanctioned by the High Court.


1 Basis of preparation

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) adopted for use in the EU (Adopted IFRS)
in accordance with EU law (IAS Regulation EC 1606/2002).

The financial information set out above does not constitute the Company's
statutory accounts for the year ended December 31, 2011, but is derived from
those accounts. Statutory accounts for Rolls-Royce Group plc for the year ended
December 31, 2010 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  Statutory
accounts for Rolls-Royce Holdings plc will be delivered to the registrar of
Companies following the Company's Annual General Meeting.   The auditors have
reported on those accounts; their reports were (i) unqualified, (ii) did not
include references to any matters to which the auditors drew attention by way
of emphasis without qualifying their reports and (iii) did not contain
statements under section 498(2) or (3) of the Companies Act 2006.

There were no revisions to Adopted IFRS that became applicable in 2011 which
had a significant impact on the Group's financial statements.


2     Analysis by business segment

The analysis by business segment is presented in accordance with IFRS 8
Operating segments, on the basis of those segments whose operating results are
regularly reviewed by the Board (the Chief Operating Decision Maker as defined
by IFRS 8), as follows:

Civil aerospace    development, manufacture, marketing and sales of commercial
                   aero engines and aftermarket services.
Defence aerospace  development, manufacture, marketing and sales of military
                   aero engines and aftermarket services.

Marine             development, manufacture, marketing and sales of marine-power
                   propulsion systems and aftermarket services.
Energy             development, manufacture, marketing and sales of power systems
                   for the offshore oil and gas industry and electrical power
                   generation and aftermarket services.

Engineering and Technology and Operations, discussed in the business review,
operate on a Group-wide basis across all the above segments.  The equity
accounted share of the Engine Holding GmbH business acquired during the year is
shown separately.

The operating results reviewed by the Board are prepared on an underlying
basis, which the Board considers reflects better the economic substance of the
Group's trading in the year.  The principles adopted to determine underlying
results are:

Underlying revenues - Where revenues are denominated in a currency other than
the functional currency of the Group undertaking, these reflect the achieved
exchange rates arising on settled derivative contracts.  There is no
inter-segment trading and hence all revenues are from external customers.

Underlying profit before financing - Where transactions are denominated in a
currency other than the functional currency of the Group undertaking, this
reflects the transactions at the achieved exchange rates on settled derivative
contracts.  In addition, adjustments have been made to exclude one-off past–
service credits on post retirement schemes and the effect of acquisition
accounting.

Underlying profit before taxation - In addition to those adjustments in
underlying profit before financing:
- Includes amounts realised from settled derivative contracts and revaluation of

1 Realised (gains)/losses on settled derivative contracts include adjustments
  to reflect the (gains)/losses in the same period as the related trading cash
  flows.
2 Unrealised fair value changes to derivative contracts include those included
  in equity accounted joint ventures and exclude those for which the related
  trading contracts have been cancelled when the fair value changes are
  recognised immediately in underlying profit.

3 The adjustment eliminates charges recognised as a result of recognising
  assets in acquired businesses at fair value.

4 In 2010, the UK Government announced changes to the basis of the statutory
  indexation for pension increases.  As a result, the relevant arrangements have
  been amended, resulting in a gain in the income statement of £130m, which has
  been excluded from underlying profit.

5 The Group has agreed revised post-retirement healthcare arrangements on
  certain of its overseas schemes. This has resulted in a net gain in the income
  statement of £34m which has been excluded from underlying profit.

The reconciliation of underlying earnings per ordinary share is shown in note 4.

4 Earnings per ordinary share

Basic earnings per ordinary share (EPS) are calculated by dividing the profit
attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of
ordinary shares in issue during the year, excluding ordinary shares held under
trust, which have been treated as if they had been cancelled.

Diluted EPS are calculated by adjusting the weighted average number of ordinary
shares in issue during the year for the bonus element of share options.

Certification costs and participation fees, development costs and recoverable
engine costs have been reviewed for impairment in accordance with the
requirements of IAS 36 Impairment of Assets. Where an impairment test was
considered necessary, it has been performed on the following basis:
- The carrying values have been assessed by reference to value in use. These have
  been estimated using cash flows from the most recent forecasts prepared by
  management, which are consistent with past experience and external sources of
  information on market conditions over the lives of the respective programmes.
- The key assumptions underlying cash flow projections are assumed market share,
  programme timings, unit cost assumptions, discount rates, and foreign exchange
  rates.
- The pre-tax cash flow projections have been discounted at 11 per cent (2010 11
  per cent), based on the Group's weighted average cost of capital.
- No impairment is required on this basis. However, a combination of changes in
  assumptions and adverse movements in variables that are outside the Group's
  control (discount rate, exchange rate and airframe delays), could result in
  impairment in future years.

1 Where a surplus has arisen on a scheme, in accordance with IAS 19 and IFRIC
  14, the surplus is recognised as an asset only if it represents an
  unconditional economic benefit available to the Group in the future. Any
  surplus in excess of this benefit is not recognised in the balance sheet.
2 A minimum funding liability arises where the statutory funding requirements
  require future contributions in respect of past service that will result in a
  future unrecognisable surplus.


10 Contingent liabilities

In connection with the sale of its products the Group will, on some occasions,
provide financing support for its customers. The Group's contingent liabilities
related to financing arrangements are spread over many years and relate to a
number of customers and a broad product portfolio. 

Contingent liabilities are disclosed on a discounted basis. As the directors
consider the likelihood of these contingent liabilities crystallising to be
remote, this amount does not represent the value that is expected to
crystallise. However, the amounts are discounted at the Group's borrowing rate
to reflect better the time span over which these exposures could arise. The
contingent liabilities are denominated in US dollars.  As the Group does not
adopt hedge accounting for forecast foreign currency transactions, this amount
is reported, together with the sterling equivalent at the reporting date spot
rate.

and other arrangements where financing is in place, less insurance arrangements

1 Security includes unrestricted cash collateral of:             67  104   68  106
2 Although sensitivity calculations are complex, the reduction of the relevant
  security by 20% illustrates the sensitivity of the contingent liability to
  changes in this assumption

There are also net contingent liabilities in respect of undelivered aircraft,
but it is not considered practicable to estimate these as deliveries can be
many years in the future, and the relevant financing will only be put in place
at the appropriate time.

Contingent liabilities exist in respect of guarantees provided by the Group in
the ordinary course of business for product delivery, performance and
reliability. The Group has, in the normal course of business, entered into
arrangements in respect of export finance, performance bonds, countertrade
obligations and minor miscellaneous items. Various Group undertakings are
parties to legal actions and claims which arise in the ordinary course of
business, some of which are for substantial amounts. While the outcome of some
of these matters cannot precisely be foreseen, the directors do not expect any
of these arrangements, legal actions or claims, after allowing for provisions
already made, to result in significant loss to the Group.

Annual report and financial statements

The statements below have been prepared in connection with the Company's full
Annual report for the year ended December 31, 2011. Certain parts thereof are 
not included with this announcement.

Going concern

The Group's business activities, together with the factors likely to affect its
future development, performance and position and a summary of the principal
risks affecting the business are shown in the business review.  The financial
position of the Group, its cash flows, liquidity position, borrowing facilities
and financial risks are also described in the business review. In addition the
consolidated financial statements include the Group's objectives, policies and
processes for financial risk management, details of its cash and cash
equivalents, indebtedness and borrowing facilities and its financial
instruments, hedging activities and its exposure to counterparty credit risk,
liquidity risk, currency risk, interest rate risk and commodity pricing risk.

The Group meets its funding requirements through a mixture of shareholders'
funds, bank borrowings, bonds, notes and finance leases. The Group has
facilities of £2.3bn of which £1.1bn was drawn at the year end.  None of these
facilities expire in 2012.

The Group's forecasts and projections, taking into account reasonably possible
changes in trading performance, show that the Group has sufficient financial
resources. As a consequence, the Directors have a reasonable expectation that
the Company and the Group are well placed to manage their business risks and to
continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future, despite the
current uncertain global economic outlook. Accordingly, the Directors continue
to adopt the going concern basis (in accordance with the guidance 'Going
Concern and Liquidity Risk: Guidance for Directors of UK Companies 2009' issued
by the Financial Reporting Council) in preparing the consolidated financial
statements.

Responsibility statement

Each of the persons who is a director at the date of approval of this report
confirms that to the best of his or her knowledge:

i)  each of the Group and parent company financial statements, prepared in
    accordance with IFRS and UK Accounting Standards respectively, gives a true 
    and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit or 
    loss of the issuer and the undertakings included in the consolidation taken 
    as a whole; and

ii) the Directors' report includes a fair review of the development and
    performance of the business and the position of the Company and the
    undertakings included in the consolidation taken as a whole, together with a
    description of the principal risks and uncertainties that they face.
 

AGM and directorate change

This year's AGM will be held at 11.00am on Friday, May 4 2012 at the QEII
Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3EE. Under
Article 112 of the Company's Articles of Association, all directors will retire
at the 2012 AGM and offer themselves for re-election. However, Sir Peter
Gregson has expressed his wish to retire as a non-executive director of
Rolls-Royce at this year's Annual General Meeting and therefore will not be
seeking re-election.
