  • US Knitwear sales reduction reflects order book position at end June.
  • Home Furnishings (Private Label) increase consistent with first half performance
  • Home Furnishings (Branded) reduction reflects phased exit from the business
full year outlook operating profit loss
Full Year OutlookOperating Profit /(Loss)
  • UK Knitwear profit reduction reflects low margin business accepted to maintain production
  • US Knitwear profitreduction a function of their lower sales
  • Home Furnishings (Private Label) shows some margin recovery from weaker USD with higher second half profit on lower sales.
  • H1 central costs benefited from King Deer receipt of $0.5m. A further payment of $1.0m is due at the end of December but is not assumed in the forecast.
  • Home Furnishings (Branded) losses decline as the business is exited.

(i)Includes 84 members at Todd & Duncan who became deferred members on the sale of the business

  • The IAS 19 deficit has fluctuated between £30m and £5m in the past 5 years.
  • There is a disconnect between the IAS19 valuation and the actuarial valuation which forms the basis of any recovery plan.
  • The 2009 triennial actuarial valuation is in progress and is likely to result in a significant increase in the deficit because of
    • asset values at the valuation date (April)
    • revised mortality assumptions
    • guidance from the Regulator in assessing the covenant of the Company
  • Associated costs (professional fees and PPF levy) are high
  • Key objectives are therefore
    • To manage down the size of the schemes by offering e.g. enhanced transfer values, cash commutations, early retirement options.
    • To agree a recovery plan and schedule of contributions with the Trustee and Regulator based on the principle of affordability but recognising the need to invest in and grow the Company and provide shareholders with a return on their investment.
  • H1 2009 results disappointing
    • Operating loss from Todd & Duncan in normally profitable period
    • Losses from Todd & Duncan disposal and Home Furnishings (Branded) exit
    • Knitwear businesses experienced significant reduction in demand due to economic conditions
    • USD exchange rate impacted Home Furnishings (Private Label) margins
  • Continuing operations1 expected to be in operating profit for the year despite economic conditions
    • However insufficient to offset losses from T&D and Home Furnishings (Branded)
  • Completion of the Todd & Duncan sale was a critical achievement
    • Leaves Dawson with a strong core of businesses with a history of excellent returns
    • Platform for future growth
  • Managing the pension scheme deficits is a key objective
    • Reducing the overall size of the schemes
    • Agreeing an affordable recovery plan/schedule of contributions
    • Minimising associated costs
