- Tracking adjusted operating profit ensures that the focus remains on delivering profitable outcomes on our contracts
- Tracking the after-tax earnings relative to the average number of shares in issue provides a monitor on shareholder value
- Tracking the total dividend per share declared for each financial year provides a monitor on the return achieved for shareholders
- Tracking the cash balance monitors the conversion of profits into cash, ensuring that cash is available for reinvestment or distribution to shareholders
- The tracking of the order book, being the amount of secured construction work and utility asset value yet to be recorded as revenue provides visibility on expected future revenue against the strategic aim to grow the business
- The tracking of the Group’s net assets monitors the Group’s financial strength and stability
- Health and safety is of paramount importance as the Group’s businesses work in sectors which carry significant health and safety risks
