Leading global player in attractive market
We are the world's leading high-service distributor in large, growing and highly fragmented markets. Our two well-established brands, RS Components (RS) and Allied Electronics (Allied), have existed for more than 75 years and cover around 90% of the world's GDP.
We have a major opportunity to take share in the two large and distinct markets in which we operate:
We have initiated a major Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) to make Electrocomponents a more efficient and responsive organisation. Progress on the implementation of the PIP has been encouraging.
During the first half of 2017 we have seen significant growth in both profits and cash flow, and we have delivered net cost savings of £13 million, which was in excess of our original expectation of £10 million. We now expect to deliver cost savings of £18 million in the full year to March 2017, and annualised net savings of £30 million by March 2018.
We are focusing on three key business priorities that lie at the heart of successful distribution businesses:
We have a clear plan, strong financial position and an energised leadership team that are determined to deliver a sustained improvement in financial performance.
