  1. Unlocking the Value Peter Johnson George Wimpey PLC 27 April 2001

  2. Unlocking the Value • George Wimpey has earned lower margins than its main competitors - there is no good reason why it should continue to do so. • George Wimpey has the potential to compete with and better the performance of its peers. My objective today is to show you how we are bringing this about.

  3. Agenda • Wimpey today - where we start from • The sources of value and how we will unlock them

  9. The sources of increased value • Land: strengthening our land-bank • Building: building high quality and reducing costs • Product: widening our range, better pricing and options • Overheads: getting the benefits from restructuring • USA: the growth potential and lessons to learn • Partners and people: working with the best

  10. Land

  11. We were competing internally reacting to local demands of regions trying to get 29 regions to critical mass rationing on first come first served basis Result was land in the wrong place bought at poor margins We now have prioritised land acquisitions based on our business strategy all regions with critical mass workable landbanks in all regions raised our target returns Result is we are buying land where we want it at much better margins Strengthening our land bank

  12. Strengthening our land bank • Completions Before and After • Regional Businesses now up to critical mass 2001 Before 2001 After No of BU’s Ave. PC’s per BU No of BU’s Ave. PC’s per BU Scotland 4 390 2 780 North 8 420 6 560 Midlands 8 390 6 520 South 9 370 7 480 UK Total 29 390 21 540

  13. Short Term Land • Short-term land bank: • 24000 plots owned • 9450 plots controlled • total 33450 equals 3.1 years supply • 2000 UK land spend of £420 million increased owned plots by 1350 (6%)

  17. Strategic Land

  18. We were managing strategic land outside UK housing business focusing on number of plots, not when they were available for use and on adding plots not getting planning on existing plots we had no geographical strategy and had not amended approach in light of PPG3 We now have fully integrated strategic land into the UK business created a smaller, more focused resource working closely with our regions prioritised action to bring existing sites through planning focused our efforts on high value and brownfield sites Strategic Land

  19. Scotland & North East 5.4m 1.6m North West & Yorkshire West Midlands 2.3m East Midlands 3.5m East & South East 1.8m South 21.2m Total 35.8m Strategic Land Capital Locked Up in Strategic Land

  20. Stategic Land Where is our Strategic Land? • Category 1 Sites • (developable within 2-3 years) • Total Number of Sites = 89 • Average estimated plots per site = 150 • Total estimated plots = 13350 22 6 9 13 8 31

  30. Building high quality and reducing costs • Build Costs • McLean Build Costs more than 10% cheaper than Wimpey • Build time • McLean 12 Weeks • Wimpey 16 -19 Weeks

  31. We were using Wimpey central design: expensive design features not adapted to local markets costly to adapt to PPG3 We now have local design (per McLean) savings identified adapted locally easier for PPG3 benchmark costs Building high quality and reducing costs House Design

  32. -Reduction of special features - £600 -Reduction of roof complexity - £1000 -Positioning - £500 Building high quality and reducing costs Redesign of Vaudeville House Type by Leicester Office Before Front Right After

  33. -Reduction of special features - 600 -Reduction of roof complexity - £1000 Total Saving = £2,100 Building high quality and reducing costs Redesign of Vaudeville House Type by Leicester Office Before Front Right After

  34. We were using Wimpey central buying: inflexible service not suited to local needs inhibited upgrades high prices Building high quality and reducing costs Procurement

  35. Building high quality and reducing costs Procurement • Central Purchasing not working • Bricks • Wimpey National deal cost £12 per thousand more than McLean • Sanitary Ware • McLean co-ordinated approach bought sanitary ware sets £300 cheaper than Wimpey

  36. We were using Wimpey central buying: inflexible service not suited to local needs inhibited upgrades high prices We now have Product Consultation Groups national deals supported by regional management national scale with knowledge on the ground procurement co-ordinated with site/sub-contractor needs benchmarking of costs Building high quality and reducing costs Procurement

  37. Product

  39. Product - Range Movement of product range to higher selling prices

  40. Product - Range Product Mix

  41. We were We now have common price and market data plans to exploit full product range where it is needed established project teams to exploit experience on “options” as well as on Bespoke developments Improved selling and marketing • not sharing pricing information between Wimpey and McLean • not working together on mixed outlet developments • not transferring experience of successes on options • not sharing market, competitor or customer data
