Steve Morgan, Chairman of Redrow, said

 

"I am delighted to report Redrow has again generated outstanding first half results.  We legally completed almost 2200 new homes in the period, 18% higher than last year, leading to record first half pre-tax profits of £104m.

 

As a result of this strong performance, whilst we continue to invest in growing the business, we have also doubled the interim dividend to 4p per share.

 

We are only at the beginning of the spring selling season, however demand for new homes remains robust.  We ended the first half with a record order book up 51% on this time last year, and in the first six weeks of the second half have secured 455 private reservations, 10% ahead of last year.

 

I am confident this will be another strong year of growth for Redrow."

Chairman's Statement

 

Redrow has delivered outstanding results over the last few years and I am delighted to once again report another record first half.  During the last six months we increased our legal completions by 18%, contributing to the much needed increase in new homes in England and Wales. 

 

Financial Results

 

Homes' revenue in the first six months of the 2016 financial year increased by 14% to £584m, due to the increased number of legal completions, which were up from 1,850 to 2,178. Total Group revenue increased by 8% to £603m despite revenues from commercial and land sales being £27m lower than in the first six months last year. In the period, the average selling price of our private homes increased 2% due to the shift of our London business away from high priced Central London apartments to concentrate more on the Outer London commuter market where demand remains strong. 

 

Outside London our private average selling price increased by 11% to £300,000 due to a combination of geographical mix change, reduction of impaired sites and price inflation.  As a consequence, gross margin increased from 22.3% to 24.2%.

 

Overheads increased from £30m to £36m primarily as a result of the opening of two new divisions, one covering Kent and Sussex, the other to manage what will be our flagship development at Colindale in North London.

 

Operating profit rose by 16% to £110m (2015: £95m) and pre-tax profits increased by 14% to a first half record of £104m (2015: £91m).  Earnings per share at 22.9p, were 15% higher than the previous year (2015: 19.9p).

 

Net debt at the end of December 2015 was £183m (June 2015: £154m), giving gearing of 20%.  We expect our net debt to continue to be below our previous guidance.  Given the strong earnings performance of the business, the Board has decided to pay an interim dividend of 4p per share (2015: 2p).  It is also our intention, subject to shareholder approval at the Annual General Meeting, to pay a final dividend of 6p (2015: 4p) making 10p for the year, an increase of 67% on last year.  The interim dividend will be paid on 31 March 2016 to holders of ordinary shares on the register at the close of business on 19 February 2016.

 

Market

 

Demand for new homes was strong throughout the first half and the Government's Help to Buy scheme continues to give us the confidence to substantially increase output.  The only area where we have seen a slow-down is in Central London.  However, this is only having a limited effect on the Group as we made the decision some time ago to re-focus our London business on Outer London where the demand is from the local market and remains robust. In the last six months 792 (44%) of our private legal completions utilised Help to Buy, up from 629 (38%) in the first half of last year.  Mortgage availability and mortgage rates also continue to improve.  As a result our sales per outlet per week were 0.65, up 10% on the prior year.

 

The value of private reservations in the first half increased by 51% from £449m to £679m resulting in a closing order book of £655m, up 51% on December last year (Dec 2014: £435m).

 

Land and Planning

 

During the first half we added over 5,700 plots to our current land bank, of which over 1,500 were converted from our forward land bank. These included 920 plots on our major Garden Village project at Woodford in Cheshire. At the end of December our current land bank totalled 21,435 plots, an 18% increase on the position at the end of June 2015.  Since the end of December we have obtained a fully implementable planning consent on the Colindale site in North London converting a further 2,900 plots from forward to current land.  Primarily, as a result of these and other successes, our forward land bank has reduced slightly.

 

There were also some small land sales in the first half both in Harrow Estates and in the Homes business and we completed on some freehold reversion sales.

 

We have invested heavily in growing our land bank over the last two years as the key to our continued growth is increasing the number of active sales outlets.  Despite the significant increase in our 'consented' land bank in the first half we increased the number of outlets by just 3% to 121.  

One consequence of selling faster is that sites are coming to an end quicker yet bringing new outlets on-stream continues to be delayed by the planning system.  Indeed, approximately 9,000 plots or 42% of our current land bank covering over 60 new outlets, are tied up at one stage or another obtaining reserved matters approval or clearing conditions.  It is imperative therefore that this part of the planning system is streamlined if the industry is to increase output to meet the country's needs.

 

People

 

The shortage of skilled people continues to be a constraint on output, although this situation has eased over the last six months.  It is essential we encourage more young people into the industry and provide them with a route to a successful career.  Redrow continues to be at the forefront of this process.  We now have 304 apprentices, graduates and trainees in the business compared to 104 three years ago and expect this number to increase in line with the growth in the Group.

 

Current Trading and Outlook

 

Demand for new homes remains robust despite recent turmoil in the financial markets. Private reservations since the beginning of January are 10% up on last year at 455 (2015: 415).  The 40% Help to Buy Equity Loan Scheme for the London market has just been launched and we eagerly await the launch of the Government's Starter Homes Initiative to help young people get on the housing ladder.  We welcome both initiatives that will provide further support to those looking to buy their first home.

 

We have a strong pipeline of new sites in planning and our strategy to grow the business and increase the number of homes we build remains on-track.

 

We are therefore confident that this will be another year of significant progress for Redrow.

NOTES (Unaudited)

 

1.         Accounting policies

 

Basis of preparation

 

The condensed consolidated half-yearly financial information for the half-year ended 31 December 2015 has been prepared on a going concern basis in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority and with IAS 34, 'Interim financial reporting' as adopted by the European Union.  The half-yearly condensed consolidated report should be read in conjunction with the annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2015, which have been prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union.

 

These half-yearly financial results do not comprise statutory accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006.  Statutory accounts for the year ended 30 June 2015 were approved by the Board of Directors on 7 September 2015 and delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The report of the auditors on those accounts was unqualified, did not contain an emphasis of matter paragraph, and did not contain any statement under section 498 of the Companies Act 2006.

 

The principal accounting policies adopted in the preparation of this consolidated half-yearly report are included in the annual financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2015.  These policies have been consistently applied to all the periods presented.

 

After making due enquiries and in accordance with the FRC's 'Going Concern and Liquidity Risk: Guidance for Directors of UK Companies 2009', the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group has adequate resources to continue trading for the foreseeable future.  Accordingly, the Directors continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

The main operation of the Group is focused on housebuilding.  As it operates entirely within the United Kingdom, the Group has only one reportable business and geographic segment.  There is no material difference between any assets or liabilities held at cost and their fair value.

 

New standards

 

           a)         New and amended standards adopted by the Group

 

The following new standards and amendments to standards are mandatory for the first time for the financial year beginning 1 July 2015. These new standards are not expected to have a material impact for the Group:

·    Amendment to IAS 19 regarding defined benefit plans (effective 1 February 2015)

 

b)         The following new standards, new interpretations and amendments to standards and interpretations have been issued but are not effective for the financial year beginning 1 July 2015:

·    Amendment to IFRS 11, 'Joint arrangements' on acquisition of an interest in a joint operation (effective 1 January 2016).

 

·    Amendment to IAS 16, 'Property, plant and equipment' and IAS 38,'Intangible assets', on depreciation and amortisation (effective 1 January 2016).

·    IFRS 14,'Regulatory deferral accounts' (effective 1 January 2016). 

·    Amendments to IAS 27, 'Separate financial statements' on the equity method (effective 1 January 2016).

·    Amendments to IFRS 10, 'Consolidated financial statements' and IAS 28, 'Investments in associates and joint ventures' (effective 1 January 2016). 

·    IFRS 15 'Revenue from contracts with customers' (effective 1 January 2017). 

·    IFRS 9 'Financial instruments' (effective 1 January 2018).  

·    Amendments to IFRS 9, 'Financial instruments', regarding general hedge accounting (effective 1 January 2018).

·    Amendment to IAS 1, 'Presentation of financial statements' on the disclosure initiative (effective 1 January 2016). 

·    Amendment to IFRS 10 and IAS 28 on investment entities applying the consolidation exception (effective 1 January 2016).  

·    IFRS 15 'Revenue from contracts with customers' (effective 1 January 2018)

 

Principal risks and uncertainties

 

As with any business, Redrow plc faces a number of risks and uncertainties in the course of its day to day operations.

 

The principal risks and uncertainties facing the Group are outlined on pages 18 to 20 of our

half-yearly report 2016.

 

2.         Income taxes

 

Income tax charge is recognised based on management's best estimate of the weighted average annual income tax rate expected for the full financial year (20.00% (2015: 20.75%)).

 

3.         Dividends

 

A dividend of £15m was paid in the six months to 31 December 2015 (six months to 31 December 2014: £7m).

 

4.         Earnings per share

 

The basic earnings per share calculation for the six months ended 31 December 2015 is based on the weighted number of shares in issue during the period of 362m (2015: 363m) excluding those held in trust under the Redrow Long Term Incentive Plan, which are treated as cancelled.

 

Diluted earnings per share has been calculated after adjusting the weighted average number of shares in issue for all potentially dilutive shares held under unexercised options.

Independent review report to Redrow plc

Report on the condensed consolidated interim financial statements

 

Our conclusion

We have reviewed Redrow plc's condensed consolidated interim financial statements (the "interim financial statements") in the half-yearly report of Redrow plc for the six month period ended 31 December 2015. Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the interim financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

 

What we have reviewed

The interim financial statements comprise:

·    the consolidated balance sheet as at 31 December 2015;

·    the consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of comprehensive income for the period then ended;

·    the consolidated statement of cash flows for the period then ended;

·    the consolidated statement of changes in equity for the period then ended; and

·    the explanatory notes to the interim financial statements.

 

The interim financial statements included in the half-yearly report have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34, 'Interim Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union and the Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

As disclosed in note 1 to the interim financial statements, the financial reporting framework that has been applied in the preparation of the full annual financial statements of the group is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union.

Responsibilities for the condensed consolidated interim financial statements and the review

 

Our responsibilities and those of the directors

The half-yearly report, including the interim financial statements, is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the half-yearly report in accordance with the Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority.

Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on the interim financial statements in the half-yearly report based on our review. This report, including the conclusion, has been prepared for and only for the company for the purpose of complying with the Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's Financial Conduct Authority and for no other purpose.  We do not, in giving this conclusion, accept or assume responsibility for any other purpose or to any other person to whom this report is shown or into whose hands it may come save where expressly agreed by our prior consent in writing.

What a review of condensed consolidated interim financial statements involves

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 United Kingdom. A review of interim financial information consists of making enquiries, 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.

We have read the other information contained in the half-yearly report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with the information in the interim financial statements.
