Revenue up for Rolls-Royce

Rolls-Royce says it has “progressed well in the first half of the year,” as it reports results.

The company posted an underlying revenue of £5.3bn, up from £5.2bn in the first half of 2021.

Meanwhile underlying operating profit dipped to £125m from £307m.

Rolls-Royce noted that demand for its products and services is growing with another period of record order intake in Power Systems, continued recovery in Civil Aerospace engine flying hours and high visibility of future revenues in Defence with a strong order book.

Warren East, Chief Executive, said: “We have progressed well in the first half of the year, with more than a £1bn improvement in free cash flow, strong order intake in Power Systems, increased engine flying hours and commercial discipline in Civil Aerospace, and targeted investment to support longer-term growth in Defence and New Markets.

“We are actively managing the impacts of a number of challenges, including rising inflation and ongoing supply chain disruption, with a sharper focus on pricing, productivity and costs. As a result of the actions we have taken over the last few years, our Civil Aerospace business is becoming leaner and more agile, and we are executing on the levers of value creation we shared at our investor event in May.

“This is setting us up to deliver on our commitments this year and in the future. We are making choices to manage the current challenges, deliver better returns, reduce debt, and generate long-term sustainable value.”
