Company Overview

Business Description:
Boart Longyear Limited (BLY) is a provider of mineral exploration drilling services, drilling equipment and performance tooling for the global mining industry. BLY operates in two main divisions which are drilling services and drilling products.

Strategy Analysis:
Organic growth for drilling services is leveraged to the commodities growth cycle which is volatile and cyclical. The Global Products business has been rationalized with the closure of some facilities, which has improved manufacturing margins. Long term success depends on successful diversification away from minerals exploration and into other growth areas such as environmental and infrastructure drilling. Boart Longyear reported NPAT down 57.4% to US$68.16m for the year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were US$2.01bn, down 0.4% from last year. Diluted EPS was 14.8 US cents compared to 34.8 US cents last year. Net operating cash flow was US$64.21m compared to US$197.7m last year. The final dividend declared was 1.0 US cent, taking the full year dividend to 7.4 US cents compared with 10.4 cents last year.
