Senior plc: FY21 Post-close Trading Update

Senior plc ("Senior" or the "Group"), an international manufacturer of high technology components and systems, principally for the worldwide aerospace & defence, land vehicle and power & energy markets, today issues this trading update for the year ended 31 December 2021 (the "Period").

Key Points

Full year trading in line with expectations

Positive net cash flow of around £58m

Net debt (excluding capitalised leases) of £80m modestly better than expectations

Improved profitability from restructuring and cost reductions

Overall, recovery underway in core markets including civil aerospace

Trading update

For the full year 2021, subject to audit, Group revenue is likely to be around £659m, with both Aerospace and Flexonics Divisions in line with management's expectations.  The Group anticipates the adjusted loss before tax(1) will also be in line with management's expectations.

In our Aerospace Division, when compared to the prior year, part of which was pre-COVID and included Senior Aerospace Connecticut for the full year, 2021 revenue is expected to be around 12% lower on a constant currency basis.  In Flexonics, revenue is expected to grow around 10% compared to the prior year, on a constant currency basis.  The decisive actions we took on restructuring and other costs have resulted in improved profitability in both divisions compared to the prior year.

As previously discussed, overall, we are seeing recovery underway in our core markets including civil aerospace and anticipate that continuing in 2022 and beyond.  While the impact of the pandemic and industry wide supply chain constraints are still with us, we continue to manage these diligently.  We will provide further detail at our full year results presentation.

Cash generation and financial position

The Group generated strong net cash inflow of around £58m in 2021.  After accounting for lease payments and currency movements, net debt at the end of December 2021 is expected to be around £80m (excluding capitalised leases of £73m), a reduction of £49m from December 2020.


All full year 2021 figures are subject to audit.

(1) Adjusted loss before tax is before amortisation of intangible assets from acquisitions, goodwill impairment and write-off, net restructuring costs and corporate undertakings.
