NRW Holdings Provided Response to Media Speculation Regarding BGC Contracting Acquisition

NRW Holdings Limited (ASX: NWH) is a group of industry leading companies which provides diversified services to the mining, energy, civil infrastructure and urban development sectors.

The company is focused on pursuing new opportunities to further diversify its revenues. In accordance with this strategy, the company had acquired Golding in 2017 and more recently the company acquired RCR Mining Technology and Heat Treatment business units. With the acquisition of RCR Mining Technology, the company now has an opportunity to offer clients an integrated service offering that includes design, procurement and maintenance and besides that this adds scale and recurring income from maintenance activities.

Recently, some media sites speculated that the company is in talks with BGC Contracting for an acquisition. However, in an announcement made on 22 May 2019, the company has clarified that it is not pursuing any acquisitions related to BGC Contracting.

After acquiring Golding in 2017, the company structured its business reporting into three segments, – Civil, Mining and Drill & Blast.

The company is progressing well with its recent acquisition of RCR Mining Technology. Recently, RCR Mining Technologies (RCRMT) was awarded a significant OEM equipment package for the Rio Tinto Iron Ore Koodaideri project to supply 3 large Apron Feeders, 11 Slide Gates and 2 Belt Feeders, to a combined value in excess of $18 Mn.

Not only the company has delivered incremental earnings growth, but it has also maintained strong cash flows with a reduction in net debt to $12.8 million and gearing to 4.3% despite an increase in capex driven by the purchase of key mining assets.
