Source: Construction News
Kier's pre-tax profits fell by £20m to £43m in the year to 30 June as its May Gurney takeover allowed for £500m in new bids in rail, highways and water. In its preliminary results released today, Kier said construction revenue was 5 per cent lower than 2012 at £1,308m (2012: £1,384m), something it attributed to poor weather in the first quarter of 2013 which caused delays and pushed revenues into the 2014 financial year.
