Trading Update


Renewi plc (LSE: RWI), the international waste-to-product business, today announces a trading update for the period from 1 October 2017 to date.


Peter Dilnot, Group Chief Executive, said:


"We have continued to make good operational progress and overall trading across the Group during the seasonally quieter second half has been in line with our expectations. We therefore remain confident in the outturn for the full year ending 31 March 2018. Our merger synergy and integration plans continue to progress well and we remain on track with the target synergies and delivering significant value accretion from the merger."




Overall trading during the second half of this financial year has been positive and in line with management's expectations. Our merger synergy and integration projects are progressing well and we remain on track to deliver at least the 12m committed savings for the year ending 31 March 2018. We remain confident that the overall €40m synergy programme will be delivered on schedule. 


The Commercial Division has continued to perform well in both the Netherlands and Belgium, well ahead of the prior year.  As expected, volume growth declined towards the end of the third quarter, reflecting the seasonal slowdown in the construction and demolition (C&D) sector.  Faced with the Chinese import ban on paper and plastic recyclates, we found alternative outlets for our products and, as expected, margins reduced slightly as a result.  Since the start of 2018 we have increased prices to offset cost pressures on wages, insurance and waste outlets.  Synergy delivery remains slightly ahead of plan and we are now in a detailed design phase for the critical IT migrations to move the Division onto common platforms, enabling structural synergies such as site rationalisation and route optimisation to take place.


The Hazardous Waste Division has performed as expected.  As previously announced, the soil cleaning line at ATM continues to operate at reduced capacity and management remain focused on the key task of increasing throughput by securing suitable new outlets for our cleaned soil.  The industrial cleaning and waste water treatment activities have performed well, with strong volumes offsetting some ongoing margin pressure in the cleaning segment.  Integration of VGIS into our Reym industrial cleaning business has progressed ahead of plan and we have secured Works Council consent for the next phase of full operational integration.    


The Monostreams Division has performed well since the half year, particularly in the Mineralz segment.  The Maltha glass recycling business has delivered ongoing margin recovery and a new long-term shareholder agreement has been signed with Owens-Illinois, our 33% co-investor in Maltha.


The Municipal Division has performed in line with our revised expectations for the year, as highlighted at the interim results, delivering good operational progress against the recovery plans.  The operating contracts of Wakefield and Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham ("BDR") continue to be loss making in the current market conditions, despite substantial operational improvements. Progress includes the passing of all performance tests at Wakefield and the signing of a new off-take contract with the AEB incinerator in Amsterdam which will reduce off-take costs for the ELWA site for the next decade.  Good progress has also been made in Canada, with the London facility back to full production and first waste being accepted at the new Surrey facility in British Columbia.




Our cash performance continues to be strong due to tight control of working capital and replacement capital expenditure, together with a deferral of some integration costs as previously announced.  Net debt remains in line with our expectations and well below our covenant levels.


Non-trading and exceptional items 


The Group is currently undertaking its annual reviews of onerous contracts and other items in the Municipal Division, particularly in light of the full year of operations at BDR and Wakefield. These reviews and additional actions to manage the portfolio are likely to result in increased exceptional charges for the year ending 31 March 2018.  An update prior to the year-end will be provided once the review has been finalised.


Exceptional integration related charges are likely to be lower than forecast in the current year, primarily as a function of timing.




The Board remains confident that the trading outturn for the full year ending 31 March 2018 will be in line with its expectations.
