The group continues to account for the Construction Materials segment as a discontinued operation and as a non-current asset held for sale.
Adjusting the H1 2012 reported results to reflect operating losses from this segment in headline earnings‚ comparable with the treatment adopted for the full year 2012 and this current set of results‚ reduces the comparable H1 2012 FDHEPS and HEPS from 130 cents per share‚ to 93 cents per share.
Group Five said the group’s businesses performed in line with management expectations and in accordance with the guidance provided in November 2012.
