ANALYST VIEWS: WHAT DO YOU THINK OF INTERNATIONAL POWER’S PERFORMANCE?

COLIN TYLER | OC&C STRATEGY

“I have to say, I'm not terribly surprised at the results. They have benefited significantly from increasing regulation on the compliance that generates revenue. Also, a lot of previous contracts are continuing to expand. It shows that a lot of the contracts had benefited from additional revenue.”

“The results are pretty bland, actually, but bland results are good. They’re slightly ahead of expectations with the US slightly weaker in numbers. I believe the company is an ex-growth company and needs to recognise that it needs to re-position itself as a yield play rather than a growth stock.”

TINA COOK | CHARLES STANLEY
“I have just started to look at the results, but it appears they have come in ahead of expectations and it was quite a good show. But I think it’s likely that a bit of speculation will remain around the company. Obviously International Power is still facing some headwinds.”
