Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, announces that Balfour Beatty Plant & Fleet Services has been transferred from Construction Services into Balfour Beatty WorkPlace in Support Services as of 1 January 2011. It is recognised that Plant & Fleet Services has a wide-ranging customer base across Balfour Beatty in the UK and that its activities are a complementary strategic fit within the Support Services division.
There is no change to the operating numbers at the Group level; however, the Group’s IFRS 8 Operating Segments analysis does require restatement, with a re-allocation of Group revenue (£9 million) and profit from operations (£11 million) for the year ended 31 December 2010 from Construction Services to Support Services. The Group revenue movement is small in relation to profit from operations due to the intercompany nature of the majority of the Plant & Fleet Services revenue.
Unaudited segmental schedules showing the effect of these restatements for Construction Services and Support Services are appended to this press release.
