BTG plc: Interim Results - Replacement
The following amendment has been made to the 'Half Yearly Report' announcement released on 10 November 2015 at 7am GMT under RNS No 1126F.
Basic and diluted adjusted earnings per share (excluding acquisition adjustments and reorganisation costs) was previously stated as 18.7p and 18.4p respectively on an underlying earnings of £71.4m. A mathematical error in calculating underlying earnings added back instead of eliminating from the calculation the £7.5m post-tax impact of the fair value changes on contingent consideration, described in Note 6 of the Interim Financial Statements. As a consequence, underlying earnings has now been amended to £56.4m, giving a basic adjusted earnings per share of 14.7p and a fully diluted adjusted earnings per share of 14.5p.
All other details remain unchanged.
