Investment driving growth

QuickView | General Industrials | 08 Mar 2018

Rotork delivered broadly in line with FY17 expectations. Order book growth was encouraging while FY17 adjusted operating margin moved up from H117 to close to FY16 levels. Kevin Hostetler will take over as CEO from 12 March, completing the management transition in a timely manner. Determination to bring the company back to former growth and margin prospects is evident. The route map for the next three to five years is underpinned by investment in R&D and front-end services ensuring Rotork delivers a valuable proposition to its customers as end-markets improve.


Preparing for acceleration

Rotork is ensuring the pillars are in place to deliver growth. The H118 report demonstrated end-market support, with order book growth across all divisions and solid operating performance. Management now has both the framework and the personnel in place to drive the initiatives on route to market, new product development and lean manufacturing.


Positioning for growth

QuickView | General Industrials | 09 Aug 2017

Rotork is taking decisive steps to determine its future size and shape. The company is not in a holding pattern awaiting a new CEO. Executive chairman Martin Lamb has taken the reins and end-market dynamics are driving a rethink in regards to innovation and the company's operating footprint. In addition, there is a considerable opportunity to drive aftermarket activity, with the benefits of improved visibility and profitability that should provide. In the short term, management's FY17 expectations have been maintained with stronger H2 delivery in sight; margins are expected to improve to a similar level to FY16.
