Company Overview

Business Description:
Coffey International Limited (COF) is a specialist professional services consultancy with expertise in geosciences, project management and international development. COF has three main business units being: geosciences, international development and project management. COF operates globally and has offices in Australia & New Zealand, Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.

Strategy Analysis:
Pre-GFC (Global Financial Crisis), COF pursued a diversification strategy across businesses and geographies, involving numerous bolt-on acquisitions. This backfired horribly for COF, as it had to shed jobs and initiate a restructuring of the business. The company now seems to be taking a more measured approach, aiming to consolidate the existing business and capitalize on its core strengths. The focus is on winning contracts that involve more than one service line. Coffey International reported NPAT down 20% to $3.7m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $359.82m, up 7% from the same period last year. Diluted EPS was 1.5 cents compared to 2.5 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $13.65m compared to $10.8m last year. No dividend was declared.
