UBM had a strong H2 and although the reported results reflect currency headwinds, the Group delivered good underlying revenue growth in both Events and PR Newswire, and solid operating margins in each of our three segments. "The acquisition of Advanstar accelerates our `Events First' strategy, which we announced in November. This clear and well-defined strategy has been embraced by the business and we have already made good progress during the first two months of 2015. The Advanstar integration is on track and trading in the first couple of months of the year has started well."

PR Newswire had a solid year in its core business and maintained its strong profitability. We disposed of our Data Services business and substantially restructured our Marketing Services activities to focus on the professional communities our events serve. We end the year with significantly higher quality earnings and with the business better positioned for structural growth. Our strategy to develop UBM as an events-led marketing services and communications business is proving successful. The growing strength of our Events business -- focused particularly on large events, and our strong presence in China and other growth markets -- continues to affirm our strategic choices and to demonstrate live media is an increasingly significant component of business to business marketing programmes. PR Newswire has retained its leading, premium position in the online news and content distribution market, and is well placed to prosper in the emerging world of digital content marketing. As I step down after almost nine years as UBM's CEO, I would like to thank my colleagues from across UBM -- and also past and present members of the Board - for their kind support and wise advice as we have built the business together."

Results for the year ended 31 December 2012- Agreed disposal of Data Services businesses ("Delta")- Revenues from continuing operations rose 2.0% to £797.8m -organic revenue growth of 6.0%- Events organic revenue growth of 11.9% with operating profit up to £142.4m- Emerging Markets revenues up 18.1% to £204.7m with operating profit of £61.7m- Adjusted operating profit from continuing operations up 1.6% to£177.0m- Fully diluted adjusted EPS for continuing operations up 3.3% to 49.8p - including Delta: 59.1p- £60.6m invested in acquiring eight events businesses and the remaining Canada Newswire stake- Recommending final dividend of 20.0p (2011: 20.0p) to bring total dividend to 26.7p, up 1.5%David Levin, UBM's Chief Executive Officer, commented:"2012 has been another good year for UBM both operationally and strategically.We grew overall revenues and profits, with robust underlying revenue growth in our key Events and PR Newswire businesses. Events now account for three quarters of the Group's continuing operating profit. We have continued to focus on large tradeshows; in 2012, 100 annual events generated revenues of more than £1m - accounting for 85% of annual event revenues.""The sale of the Delta businesses is a significant strategic step which simplifies UBM's business, improves the quality of our earnings, enhances underlying growth rates and removes the challenge of transitioning the Delta businesses to the digital environment. We can now focus on further developing UBM as a fast-growing and increasingly profitable events-led marketing services and communications business."

Strong first half - guidance confirmed Results for the six months ended 30 June 2012- Revenues up 7.3% to £508.7m - underlying revenue growth of 6.8%- Adjusted operating profit up 12.5% to £103.4m- Fully diluted adjusted EPS up 13.9% to 28.6p- Cash generation from operating activities up to £113.9m (112% conversion)- Events operating profit up 29.6% to £74.8m, 66.5% of group total (excluding corporate costs)- Forward bookings for top 20 events up 12.7%- Emerging Markets revenues up 20.9% to £93.1m, representing 18.3% of total- Seven acquisitions completed in H1 for expected consideration of £26.6m- Initiated strategic review of Data Services businessesDavid Levin, UBM's Chief Executive Officer, commented:"We have had a good first half of the year with underlying revenue growth of 6.8% and margins up almost a percentage point to 20.3%. Our strategy is yielding positive results as we continue to improve the quality of the business. We have decided to explore strategic options for the Data Services businesses to confirm we are allocating capital appropriately between the growing number of opportunities now available to us.Our events portfolio performed very well with good attendee-led technology events in the US, an above-plan performance at Ecobuild in its first edition under UBM ownership, and strong results from our events in Emerging Markets,particularly in China. PR Newswire generated GDP-plus revenue growth and improved its margins while also launching new products. Data Services results reflect specific challenges in two verticals but overall the business made good progress. Marketing Services - Online grew well, led by our community-focused products, while the Print component declined more rapidly than anticipated.We remain on track to meet our expectations for the full year. We now expect improved underlying growth for Events of 12%-14%. PR Newswire remains on track. We maintain full year guidance for Data Services where we expect an improved performance notably from UBM TechInsights in the second half. However,we now expect Marketing Services - Online and Print to deliver growth of between 0%-2%. While our business is trending positively, we are retaining our consolidated guidance as we are mindful of the uncertain external environment."

25th April 2012 Interim Management Statement Good Q1 performance - group guidance maintained Unaudited results for the three months ended 31 March 2012Highlights - Q1 revenue up 11.1% to £264.2m (Q1 2011: £237.7m); underlying revenue growth of 6.9% - Adjusted operating profit up by 25.8% to £56.1m (Q1 2011: £44.6m) - Adjusted operating profit margin up to 21.2% (Q1 2011: 18.8%) - Strong performance from 2011 acquisitions, notably Ecobuild - Group guidance for 2012 confirmed; higher organic growth in Events expected to offset slower pace in PR Newswire and Marketing ServicesDavid Levin, Chief Executive Officer, UBM said:"UBM performed well in the first quarter. We were particularly pleased by theperformance of our Events businesses, most notably Game Developers Conferenceand Ecobuild in its first edition under UBM ownership. PR Newswire has had asolid start to the year with subdued growth in the US partially offset byinternational growth, notably in China. Data Services revenues were lower thananticipated, largely reflecting phasing factors which we expect will unwindthrough the year. As expected, UBM's online Marketing Services revenuesexceeded Print revenues for a full reporting period for the first time.Overall we are on track for the full year. Based on trading conditions so far,we now expect that underlying growth for Events will be in the range of 10% -12%, but this will offset slower growth in PR volumes and advertising activity,particularly in print magazines. We now expect growth in both PR Newswire andMarketing Services to come in at the lower end of our guidance ranges. Althoughconditions in a number of our markets remain challenging, and year-on-yearcomparisons will get tougher as the year progresses, the business is performingwell, and we maintain our consolidated guidance for 2012."
