Rolls-Royce Confirm 2013 Financial Forecasts

Press Release
Thursday, May 02, 2013

Rolls-Royce state that current trading is in line with expectations, and that their guidance for the full year is confirmed.

Since the preliminary 2012 results in February, Rolls-Royce say they have won a US$1.6bn order from International Airlines Group (IAG) for Trent XWB engines, with long-term TotalCare® service support, to power 18 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft; they have also  signed multiple contracts to provide and service military transport engines for the US Air Force and US Marine Corps; in addition  construction has started on the state-of-the-art Core Manufacturing Facility in Derby that will produce reactor cores for the UK's current and future Submarines Programme.

Tognum update
Engine Holding, the Group’s joint venture with Daimler, acquired the remaining minority shares in Tognum in March and Tognum has subsequently been de-listed. Rolls-Royce will continue to guide Tognum separately for 2013. They expect underlying revenue and underlying profit to be broadly flat in the full year compared to 2012, unchanged from the guidance given by Tognum in March 2013.

Tony Wood has been appointed President - Aerospace and will take up his new role on May 13. He replaces Mark King who has decided to resign from the company at the end of June. Tony, presently President - Marine, has worked for Rolls-Royce for 12 years and has experience in both the Civil Aerospace and Defence Aerospace businesses.
