Business Description: Monadelphous Group Limited (MND) is an engineering group providing project management, construction, asset management and maintenance services to the resources, energy and infrastructure industry sectors. MND operates three business divisions: Engineering Construction, Maintenance and Industrial Services and Infrastructure predominately in one geographical area, namely Australia.
Strategy Analysis: MND¬īs strategic objective is to establish a resilient business through economic cycles with the ability to deliver quality earnings growth by the provision of contracting services to the resources, energy and infrastructure sectors. Diversification into the infrastructure sector is a well-considered strategy, which could eventually help to insulate it from an inevitable downturn in resource and energy project work.
Engineering and construction contracting work prospects remain positive with a healthy forward work load combined with strengthening resources and energy project pipelines, should ensure high levels of tendering activity in the short term. But long term future growth is highly dependent on increasing levels of resource and energy sector activity and the flow of projects. Customers ultimately maintain strong bargaining power over MND due to an ability to substitute contractors.
Monadelphous Group reported NPAT up 37.54% to $79.1m for the half-year ended 31 December 2012. Revenues from ordinary activities were $1.29bn, up 46.16% from the same period last year. This result has been driven by an extraordinary surge in construction work. Diluted EPS was 86.9 cents compared to 64.3 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $43.35m compared to $68.41m last year. The interim dividend declared was 62 cents compared with 50 cents last year. Looking beyond the current financial year, after two consecutive years of growth of more than 30%, 2013/14 is currently anticipated to be a period of consolidation in which the achievement of any revenue growth will be challenging.

Most of those who take a political approach to the budget assume that if it's in deficit, the way you get it back to surplus is to cut government spending or, if you're a really bad person, increase taxes. They forget it's the budget itself that's supposed to do the heavy lifting.
