Investment summary

Rolls announced on Friday 7 March that Daimler has decided to exercise its “put” option relating to its 50% shareholding in Tognum (now renamed Rolls-Royce Power Systems). Tognum was acquired jointly by Rolls and Daimler for €3.4bn in June 2011, and in H213 was fully consolidated by Rolls. This followed in-line results with particularly strong cash performance (+£359m; net cash is now £1,939m). However, the statement guided to a pause in revenue and profit growth in 2014, with growth set to resume in 2015. There was reassurance in the cash flow guidance “broadly similar to 2013”, given cash is one of the key components of the 4Cs priorities (customer, concentration, costs, cash).

Industry outlook

With the business well balanced across civil, defence, marine and energy markets, Rolls' long-term future is driven by the recovery in the economic climate. The outlook is encouraging, with civil air traffic growth, new aircraft build rates increasing and global defence expenditure relatively stable.
