John Wood Group PLC said Dec. 12 that it expects revenue of between $10.9 billion and $11.1 billion this year, up 10% from 2017.
The company expects to report revenue synergies with a cost of over $500 million and an increasing cost synergy target of over $210 million.
Full-year earnings before interest, taxes and amortization are expected at $620 million to $630 million, based on August guidance and market expectations.
Operational cash conversion after exceptional items is expected at about 100% and will contribute to a net reduction in net debt amounting to $1.5 billion ending December.
The company said the volatility in commodity prices may impact confidence and the pace of contract awards in 2019 despite its positive medium-term outlook in oil and gas.
The energy services provider said it expects earnings growth in 2019 brought by cost synergies amounting to $60 million.
Year-to-date through October, Wood announced it had secured approximately $250 million in midstream-sector contracts across the U.S.
