WYG PLC Snapshot

We are a project management and technical consultancy with a strong track record in assessing, defining, planning, designing and supervising major projects and development programmes. Our experts undertake work on behalf of blue-chip private sector clients, governments and development agencies globally.

The Group has well-diversified revenues, with over 1,500 consultants operating in 40 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. We apply a range of expertise to enable some of the world’s most sophisticated projects across our Group’s seven chosen sectors.

We have strong market positions across the seven sectors of Defence & Justice, Energy & Waste, Environment, Mining & Metals, Social Development & Infrastructure, Transport and Urban & Commercial Development. Our technical and regulatory expertise, project and local market experience, and client relationships provide us with a clear competitive edge in these markets.

Under the current executive management team, our performance and financial profile has been materially strengthened in recent years. Having phased out lower return activities, the focus now is on delivering shareholder value. We are achieving this by building on the Group’s clear momentum in securing new contract wins and by investing in a range of organic and acquisitive growth opportunities both in the UK and internationally. Whilst our Board recognises the importance of dividends to investors, it believes that shareholder returns will be optimised by using the Group’s cash to take advantage of these opportunities in the short term.

Our management team has identified three key drivers of future growth:

  • Fragile states and stabilisation – working with military and donor clients to create stability and facilitate post-conflict restructuring across many fragile states.
  • Supporting population growth whilst preserving the global environment – working with private, public sector and donor clients to ensure that the world’s growing population has access to the necessary energy and water infrastructure whilst minimising carbon impact and climate change.
  • Urban development and connected cities – advising clients on developing infrastructure related to urbanisation. Here, we use our expertise to help people, and the cities where they live and work, become better connected.

Our goal of delivering profit before tax of over £9m by the Group’s 2016 financial year is underpinned by the Board’s belief that we can:

  • Harness growth in the three key areas
  • Continue to increase the Group’s order book
  • Improve utilisation rates
  • Enhance margins.
