LONDON, August 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Group Financial Highlights
- Revenue for Q2 2014 increased by £11.2m to £129.8m, a rise of 9.4% (Q2 2013: £118.6m), driven predominantly by a strong performance in Healthcare and Craegmoor due to higher ADC and ADF, together with continuing maturity of Amore Care, partially offset by reduced revenue in Education following changes to pupil mix with fewer residential places.
- Adjusted EBITDAR is up 4.1% to £35.4m (Q2 2013: £34.0m) and Adjusted EBITDA is up 4.5% to £32.4m (Q2 2013: £31.0m) primarily due to higher revenue in Healthcare, Craegmoor and Amore Care, partially offset by the challenging conditions in Education as well as higher operating costs to service the higher levels of ADC and patient acuity.
- Revenue YTD 2014 increased by £20.1m to £254.0m, a rise of 8.6% (YTD 2013: £233.9m).
- Adjusted EBITDAR YTD 2014 up 3.8% to £68.3m (YTD 2013: £65.8m) and Adjusted EBITDA up 4.2% to £62.3m (YTD 2013: £59.8m).

Commenting on the results, Priory Group Chief Executive Officer Tom Riall said:
"Following our solid start to 2014, trading for the period has remained in line with our expectations with the second quarter of the year seeing us maintain and indeed build upon our positive trading performance in the year to date, recording a near 10% rise in revenues alongside a 4.5% increase in EBITDA.
"I am particularly pleased by the strong performances from our Healthcare and Craegmoor divisions during the quarter as well as the ongoing maturity of our Amore Care business. Conditions in the broader education market continue to adversely affect our Education business but I am satisfied that the measures we are taking to address the issues we are facing will ensure that the Group is well positioned in the medium term.
"Overall, we are continuing to make good progress against our revised strategy as we seek to become the UK's leading provider of specialist healthcare, social care and education services."

The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Tricky charts and visually deceptive graphs often make a case for the impact IT performance has on business. The debate isn't around the obvious; of course, IT performance metrics like website load time influence business metrics such as conversions and revenue. Rather, this presentation will explore various data analysis concepts to understand how, and how not to, assert such correlations.
