Avon Rubber designs, develops and manufactures products in the respiratory protection and defence (74% of 2014 sales) and dairy (26%) sectors. Its main contracts are with national safety and security organisations such as the US DoD. In this interview, CEO Peter Slabbert explains the drivers of the group's strong results and the focus on technological and operational performance improvement that will help margins to be sustained over the long term. He goes on to discuss the consistent application of the strategy to invest in R&D and new markets, both in terms of new geographies, but also other highly demanding adjacent markets such as fire and oil and gas. In addition, he highlights the move to increasing services such as the group's cluster exchange programme as a means to further drive value for customers and shareholders alike. With new products coming to market and being bid for, additional BRIC businesses established, as well as a potential improvement in currency effects, he explains the group has numerous drivers of further growth over the coming years.

Executive Interview - Rolls-Royce

Executive Interview - Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce is a global provider of complex, integrated power systems and services to the aerospace and marine/industrial power systems markets with two strong technology platforms: gas turbines and reciprocating engines. Its consistent, long-term strategy has seen revenue double and underlying profit increase more than five times in the last decade, while its substantial order book provides excellent visibility of future growth with good opportunities to improve margins and cash flow conversion. Investor Relations director Simon Goodson discusses the recently announced sale of the group's Energy gas turbine business to Siemens and the resulting £1bn share buyback. The buyback was initiated following management's expectation that no large acquisitions will be undertaken in the foreseeable future while the integration of Tognum completes. He goes on to explain the long-term nature of the group's order book and aftermarket business, along with the impact it will have on operational efficiency as significant volumes of Trent engines are delivered.

Investor Relations director Simon Goodson explains the reasons for the recent guidance for a short-term pause in growth and how the group is faring against its 4Cs priorities. He also explores why the group is seeking to broaden its technology portfolio and the relative benefits of taking an organic or inorganic route to deliver such technology expansion.

Analyst Interview - Sash Tusa on the European Aerospace & Defence sector

Analyst Interview - Sash Tusa on the European Aerospace & Defence sector

The European Aerospace & Defence sector has produced a number of surprises in its results for FY13. Edison A&D analyst Sash Tusa explains why 2014 is likely to be a “growth pause” for several of the largest companies, and discusses longer-term trends. Defence spending looks set to remain weak in both the US and Europe, and few companies have a sufficiently large export presence to be able to offset this. In civil aerospace, production rates are likely to grow strongly from 2015 onwards, driven by the Airbus A350, Boeing 787 and rate rises in the narrow-bodied aircraft programmes. By contrast, the outlook for engine manufacturers is more mixed, with still high R&D costs and the end of major defence exports.
