Outlook Statement - Full Year Results 2016

We anticipate that any near term growth in energy markets will remain modest. Our focus will remain on providing our customers with innovative, high quality products and services, reducing their cost of ownership and improving plant efficiency.

Cost management will remain a priority in the current year as we look to mitigate any inflationary pressures through our highly flexible operating base.

We continue to target growth through organic development and acquisition, that will enhance our broad product portfolio, diverse end market exposure and wide geographic presence.

Whilst mindful of continued macroeconomic uncertainties, at this stage of the year the Board believes Rotork is well placed to make progress in 2017.
