Miller order book swells with performance 'ahead of expectations'

Source: Construction News 

Miller Group has announced a record order book of £1.5 billion in construction, as the business returned to profit in 2012. The group reported profit before tax of £6.6 million in the year to 31 December, compared to a 2011 loss of £30.4m before exceptional items, which it described as “ahead of expectations”. The results follow its £160m refinancing deal that handed more than 55 per cent of the family firm to outside investors, led by GSO Capital Partners – a subsidiary of US private equity giant Blackstone, in 2012. The group’s construction division produced a profit before interest of £3.2m (2011: £6.8m) on turnover of £259.4m (2011: £238.6m) which it said was “impacted by expensing upfront significant business development costs”.
