Thierry Pilenko, Chairman and CEO, commented: “Technip's performance was in line with our objectives throughout 2012, including the fourth quarter. Full year group revenue grew by 20% and operating profit by 16%, giving an operating margin again stable at 10%. Our backlog grew to €14 billion, whilst remaining diversified by geography, market segment and project type, which we hold to be a critical success factor in our industry. The projects we delivered and won in 2012 reflect our focus on offering our clients differentiating technologies, and on securing involvement in projects early in their life-cycle. To support our growth, we have invested in talent worldwide - Technip now employs 36,500 people compared to 31,000 a year ago - and in new assets, acquisitions and alliances.

Subsea operating margin in 2012 was in line with our objective, at 15% on revenue, which grew ahead of plan by 36%. The Global Industries integration progressed well, and we were able to win many important projects for the two “G” vessels for 2013 and beyond. Overall, this acquisition is delivering what we expected. The alliance with Heerema confirms our leadership in the Subsea market worldwide, giving our clients access to the broadest range of skills from upstream engineering to all types of pipelay and construction assets. Our investments in assets and flexible pipe technology give us a strong position, for example, in deepwater developments in areas such as Brazil.

Onshore/Offshore operating margin was at the top end of our expectations at 7%. We were able to convert early stage involvement in projects at FEED and conceptual phases into larger EPC scopes in places such as the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. We completed the acquisition of Stone and Webster Process Technologies in August giving us a foothold in the North American downstream market and have since formed a worldwide unit focusing on onshore technologies. We have also strengthened our position in new areas such as Floating LNG, where we confirmed key relationships with major clients.

Furthermore, we have pursued the development of Technip into a more diversified and international group, including at Board level with the appointments made in 2012 and those to be proposed at our next AGM. Upon their ratification, our twelve-member Board will comprise five women and seven men, from seven different nationalities, and reflecting key markets.

Technip starts 2013 with a substantial, profitable backlog of business to execute. We believe our markets, whilst competitive and never immune to general economic conditions, remain robust and growing. Our clients continue to focus on replacing and raising production from increasingly challenging areas and reservoirs. They seek long-term relationships with contractors that are capable of developing and deploying the right technologies and who can embrace national content and local execution. Upstream investments should grow at a double digit rate and several very large oil and gas offshore developments should be sanctioned in the next couple of years. Downstream will be particularly active in petrochemicals, notably in North America.

We will continue to be selective about the projects we take on so as to ensure reliable execution and delivery to both clients and shareholders. We will pursue our capex program, with a focus on delivering our current commitments.

On this basis, we expect to grow revenue and profit at Technip again in 2013 in both our segments. We expect full year operating margins of around 15% in Subsea. This target reflects on the one hand our robust, growing Subsea backlog, but also the dilutive effect of the revenue contribution from recently-won multiyear projects and the substantial start-up costs for both new vessels and manufacturing plants. We target Onshore/Offshore operating margins in line with our long-term expectations at 6 to 7%.

Accordingly, confident in our strategy, our backlog, and our potential for profitable growth, we propose to Technip’s General Shareholders’ Meeting an increase of 10 eurocents in the dividend, to €1.68 per share, in line with our practice of regularly increasing the payout to shareholders.”

1 Operating income from recurring activities divided by revenue.
2 Based on the year-to-date average exchange rates.
3 Operating income from recurring activities before depreciation and amortization.
4 As per IFRS, diluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing profit or loss attributable to the Parent Company’s Shareholders, restated from financial interest related to dilutive potential ordinary shares, by the weighted average number of outstanding shares during the period, plus the effect of dilutive potential ordinary shares related to the convertible bonds, dilutive stock options and performance shares calculated according to the “Share Purchase Method” (IFRS 2), less treasury shares. In conformity with this method, anti-dilutive stock options are ignored in calculating EPS. Dilutive options are taken into account if the subscription price of the stock options plus the future IFRS 2 charge (i.e. the sum of annual charge to be recorded until the end of the stock option plan) is lower than the average market share price during the period.
5 Recommendation of Technip’s Board of Directors to be approved during the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting (AGM) on April 25, 2013.

I. PROJECT PORTFOLIO

1. Fourth Quarter 2012 Order Intake

During fourth quarter 2012, Technip’s order intake was €2,975 million. The breakdown by business segment was as follows:

                 
Order Intake (€ million)       4Q 2011       4Q 2012
Subsea       1,216.0       914.1
Onshore/Offshore 1,022.6 2,061.0
Total       2,238.6       2,975.1
 

Subsea order intake included several small and medium-sized contracts on several continents, notably the second phase of the Total E&P Angola GirRI project, which was awarded after the successful completion of the first phase in 2012. In the Americas, we were awarded several projects involving our leading assets and expertise: the G1200 vessel will notably lay 30’’ pipeline on the South Timbalier Block 283 Junction Platform project, which will be the largest lines she has installed to date, and work on Starfish field in Trinidad and Tobago for BG International Ltd.

Onshore/Offshore order intake comprised several commercial successes for both offshore production units and onshore downstream activities. We were awarded our first tension leg platform project by Sabah Shell Petroleum Company for the Malikai project in Malaysia. As consortium leader, we were chosen by Total E&P Norge for a contract covering engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, hookup and commissioning of the topsides for the Martin Linge platform in Norway. We also signed an EPC contract with BASF in Germany for the expansion of a chlorine plant, a project on which we also carried out the FEED. Other awards included notably an engineering and procurement contract for an ethylene production plant in the USA.

The main contracts announced since October 2012 and their approximate value, if publicly disclosed, are listed in annex IV (b).

Capital expenditures in 2012 amounted to €519 million versus €357 million one year ago, underlying our sustained effort to introduce new assets as quickly as possible. Total capital expenditures for 2013 are expected to be similar.

IV. FULL YEAR 2013 OUTLOOK

We expect to grow revenue and profit at Technip again in 2013 in both our segments. We expect full year operating margins of around 15% in Subsea. This target reflects on the one hand our robust, growing Subsea backlog, but also the dilutive effect of the revenue contribution from recently-won multiyear projects and the substantial start-up costs for both new vessels and manufacturing plants. We target Onshore/Offshore operating margins in line with our long-term expectations at 6 to 7%.

  • Group revenue growing 11% to 16% to between €9.1 and €9.5 billion
  • Subsea revenue growing to between €4.3 and €4.6 billion, with operating margin around 15%
  • Onshore/Offshore revenue growing to between €4.7 and €5.1 billion, with operating margin between 6% and 7%

V. Other

It is proposed to the General Shareholders’ Meeting to be held on April 25, 2013 to appoint Manisha Girotra and Pierre-Jean Sivignon as new members of Technip’s Board of Directors. These appointments would further strengthen Technip’s Board of Directors as independent and diverse through experience, gender and geography, also reflecting our key markets.
