dpa-AFX: Leighton Profit Drops 20%, Lifts Dividend

| Quelle: dpa-AFX Analysen
CANBERA (dpa-AFX) - Australian construction firm Leighton Holdings Ltd. (LEI.AX, LGTHF.PK), majority-owned by German construction giant Hochtief AG (HOCFF.PK), Monday said profit for the half year declined from the prior year, while revenue improved year-over-year. Net profit after tax fell about 20 percent to A$291.3 million from last year's A$366.2 million. Underlying net profit after tax was A$319 million, compared to A$255 million last year. Total revenue rose 3 percent to A$11.9 billion, driven primarily by growth in construction work that rose 5 percent to A$7.7 billion. The company announced an interim dividend of 57 Australian cents per share, up 27 percent from last year. Executive Chairman and CEO Marcelino Fernández Verdes said, ''We are already seeing the positive impact of the Federal Government's infrastructure initiatives, with our 12 month tender pipeline approximately 33% higher than the equivalent pipeline at the time of the FY13 result, and, looking further ahead, we have under preparation the largest pipeline of $1 billion-plus tenders in Leighton's history.'' Leighton reiterated its previously issued guidance for fiscal 2014 for underlying net profit after tax in the range of A$540 million to A$620 million. LEI.AX is currently down 2.3 percent at A$22.12.
