Press Release
Friday, May 04, 2012

Rolls Royce say that current trading is consistent with guidance contained in last annual report

Trading since the start of the year is consistent with the guidance provided in our Full Year Report in February. For the full year, the Group continues to expect good growth in underlying revenue and underlying profit with cash flow around breakeven as we continue to invest in future growth. Guidance excludes the impact of the Tognum acquisition and the proposed sale of the Group’s 32.5% shareholding in International Aero Engines (IAE).

The Group’s balance sheet remains strong. Recognising this, Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services has raised its long and short term corporate credit ratings to ‘A/A-1’ from ‘A-/A-2’, with a stable outlook.

Since announcing preliminary results in February, Rolls-Royce has achieved some important milestones. The Trent XWB engine took to the skies for the first time, on board an Airbus A380 flying test bed. In Singapore, we opened our new manufacturing and training facilities that will produce wide chord fan blades and assemble and test large commercial jet engines.

Rolls-Royce continues to invest across the Group in technology, capability and facilities to deliver on our current commitments, to improve productivity and to create opportunities for future growth.
The Group will report its interim results for the six month period ending 30 June 2012 on 26 July 2012.
