ANALYST VIEWS | HOW WELL IS ATKINS PERFORMING?

Atkins delivered a solid set of prelims, slightly ahead of our expectations. With the UK and US having stabilised...and 60pc of forecast revenue secured, we have increased confidence in our 2013 forecasts.

Full year results are slightly ahead. Net cash in line. Headcount up and work-in hand up. Dr Krueger has set out his stall, and seeks to reduce exposure to the UK from around 50pc to less than 25pc.

Atkins’ finals are in line, which is unsurprising. US revenues look disappointing to us, only partially offset by strong growth in the smaller Middle East and energy divisions, while UK is in line.
