    De La Rue shifts focus to polymer notes in hopes of faster turnaround

    Last November, De La Rue warned on its future and scrapped its dividend to tackle mounting debt after a series of setbacks which included profit warnings, a corruption probe in South Sudan and the loss of a 400 million pound contract for Britain's new passports. The company, which holds the contract to design and make the Bank of England's new polymer notes, said it was targeting annual cost savings of 35 million pounds ($45.37 million) from the second half of 2020-21, up from its prior target of 20 million pounds. The turnaround plan includes consolidating the company into two divisions, focussing on growing demand for polymer currency and its authentication business, which seeks to capitalise on more countries adopting tobacco tax stamps to comply with World Health Organisation rules.

    De La Rue unveils cost-cutting plans, reaffirms profit outlook

    De La Rue said on Tuesday it plans to rein in costs at its currency division and invest more in polymer notes, as the struggling banknote printer tries to improve margins as part of a three-year turnaround plan. The company, which holds the contract to design and make the Bank of England's new polymer notes, stuck to its previous forecast for adjusted operating profit of 20-25 million pounds for full-year 2019-20.

    Activist Crystal Amber bets on Britain's De La Rue

    Crystal Amber on Tuesday disclosed a stake of 14.33% as at Nov. 29, from an earlier stake of 7.12%, making the fund De La Rue's biggest investor. De La Rue also reported a first-half loss last week as it tackles stiff competition, but Crystal Amber said at the time that it was "not alarmed" by the passport printer's weak results and would buy more shares. Crystal Amber said then that the fund was "very encouraged" by De La Rue's new top boss Clive Vacher, who took over in October and has been tasked with turning around the company and reducing its debt burden.

    "We have concluded there is a material uncertainty that casts significant doubt on the group's ability to continue as a going concern," De La Rue said in a statement, adding that it was focused on delivering a turnaround plan. De La Rue, which appointed Clive Vacher as its chief executive last month, said it would conduct a review of its business that will speed up its restructuring plan to cut overhead costs and focus on inventory management. The over 200-year old firm, which holds the contract to design and manufacture the Bank of England's new polymer notes, said its net debt had risen 58% to 170.7 million pounds.

    De La Rue: Shares in banknote printer plunge amid 'significant doubt' over its future

    Shares in the passport and banknote printer De La Rue plunged by more than a fifth after it warned of "significant doubt" that it can continue as a going concern. The warning by De La Rue follows a series of setbacks including two profit warnings, the loss of a contract for Britain's new post-Brexit blue passports and an investigation into suspected corruption in South Sudan. De La Rue, which produces passports for 40 countries, said its net debt had risen by more than 58% to £170.7m as its banknote printing business struggled in the face of stiff competition and the growing popularity of cashless payments.

    UPDATE 2-Trade hopes, pound dip pull FTSE 100 out of red

    London's FTSE 100 eked out gains despite an 8% slide in catering firm Compass Group on growing hopes of a U.S.-China trade resolution, while gains in LSE after shareholder approval for its Refinitiv deal and a weaker sterling also provided support. The FTSE 250 index was outperforming the UK blue-chips as well as the broader European benchmark, even as the pound fell after polls showed the Conservative Party's lead was narrowing before the December election. The recent gains have placed the midcap index on course for its best yearly performance since 2014.

    UPDATE 2-Pharma stocks lift FTSE 100 out of red

    A rally in pharmaceutical stocks led by industry giants GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca helped the FTSE 100 outshine most global peers on Wednesday while investors waited for the outcome of the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy meeting. The FTSE 100 reversed early losses to close up 0.3%, with the pharma sub-index scaling an all-time high, up 2.5% after GSK again upgraded its 2019 targets. Moves on both indexes were however subdued with investors waiting for the Fed to announce its policy decision.

    De La Rue warns on profit again as new chief reviews business

    The company did not specify the reason for its lowered expectations, but a previous warning was triggered by a margin squeeze from competitive pressures in banknote printing. The company had said in May that operating profit for the current year would be "somewhat lower" than the previous year. Earlier this month, it named Clive Vacher as chief executive officer.
