Andrew Norman, Chief Executive of JDR, said:
“I am delighted to report that JDR has delivered a record performance in 2012, which

record revenues and EBITDA of GBP129.9m and GBP25.8m for the twelve months ended 31

1. The JDR Group of companies has changed its financial year end from 31 March to 31
December. The performance figures included in this announcement are unaudited 12 month pro
forma figures, which include audited results for the nine months from April to December
2012 and three months of profit and loss account and cash flow figures from the final
quarter of the year ended 31 March 2012. For more information please refer to the JDR
Cable Systems (Holdings) Annual Report 2012.
Revenue for the twelve months ended 31 December 2012 rose from GBP83.2m in 2011 to
GBP129.9m which, combined with excellent performances by the sales and production
divisions, resulted in a record EBITDA of GBP25.8m for the calendar year. This represented
a step change compared with 2011, when the Group delivered negative EBITDA of GBP4.1m.
Cash flow and net debt
Operating cash inflow of GBP19.6m in 2012 compared to an outflow of GBP10.5m in 2011,
with GBP13.3m of this being used to repay debt, consisting of bank lending and shareholder
loans. This has significantly strengthened the group balance sheet, so that net assets
totalled GBP31.6m at year end (2011: GBP13.5m). The accumulated deficit in the profit and
loss account has been eliminated.
Our cash flow conversion, measured as operating cash flow less capital expenditure
divided by EBITDA, was 59%. Going forward, whilst we expect EBITDA to continue to
increase, working capital changes and capital expenditure will increase at a slower rate.
This will result in a rise in free cash flow, and an increase in cash conversion rates,
which will benefit the business and provide the Group with greater financial flexibility.
Having reaped the benefits of its investment in developing technologies and
manufacturing infrastructure, the Group spent GBP4.3m on its capital expenditure programme
for the year. Of this amount, GBP2.5m went towards continued enhancements at JDR’s
state-of-the art Hartlepool plant, which now employs 157 people.
JDR had a record order intake of GBP112.5m in 2012, with a compound annual growth rate
of approximately 20% since 2008. The Group expects this level of growth to continue and is
confident about the order intake for 2013 and beyond.
The new financial year has started well and performance is in line with management’s
expectations. This, combined with the growing global market for offshore energy, gives the
Board confidence in JDR’s ability to deliver continued growth during 2013 and beyond.
