Leo Quinn, Group Chief Executive, said: 'This is another strong set of results - increasing profits backed by a strong cash performance, plus carefully managed growth in our order book.

'Today, the Group's geographic and operational diversity underpins our risk management, with over 50% of our business and Investments portfolio assets outside the UK.

'Combined with the strength of our balance sheet and cash flows, this positions Balfour Beatty to create and return future value to shareholders.'

Notes:

1 revenue and order book include share of joint ventures and associates

2 before non-underlying items (Note 8)

3 non-recourse net borrowings are cash and debt that are ringfenced within certain infrastructure concession project companies

A reconciliation of the Group's performance measures to its statutory results is provided in the Measuring Our Performance section.
