ANALYSIS

Sword's current year actual financial results are still ahead of budget, both in terms of organic growth and profitability.

The  pro-forma  backlog  has  once  again  shown  a  material increase,  it  has increased  from  17.7  months  as  at  the 31/12/2013  to  22.9  months  as  at the  30/9/2014.  This  increase  is  mainly due  to  significant  contracts  which have  been  signed  with  the European  Union.    This  increase  is  stated  on  a prudent  basis only  taking  into  account  the  guaranteed  element  of  these contracts rather  than  the  maximum  potential  which  could  be  much  higher.

OUTLOOK

The group confirms all its 2014 goals.
