Notification of Announcement of 2010 Results and Segment Changes Trading and Commercial Update

03 February 2011

("RPS" or "the Group")

RPS's 2010 results announcement will be made on 2 March 2011.

On the basis of the Group's unaudited full year management accounts the Board of RPS believes that the 2010 results will show profit (before tax and amortisation) in line with the consensus of published forecasts. (Note 1). Net bank debt at the year end was about £32 million, after another year of strong cash conversion. The Group continues to progress its strategy successfully and has signed heads of terms to acquire two Energy sector businesses, one in the US and one in the UK/US. If both complete the total investment would be about £28m, on terms that are similar to other transactions we have undertaken.

In our Interim Management Statement dated 28 October 2010 we announced that in order to ensure a robust Planning and Development business we were merging our British, Irish and Northern Ireland businesses. The integration process was successfully completed before the year end and accordingly we will report the results of one business, Planning and Development: UK and Ireland in the Report and Accounts for 2010. In order to provide appropriate year on year comparisons when the 2010 results are announced, business segment information will be revised for prior periods as shown in Notes 2 and 3. After taking advice, the Board is conducting its annual review of the carrying value of goodwill on the Group's balance sheet on the basis that this business now comprises a single cash generating unit.

The recent extreme flooding in Queensland has seriously disrupted our business and those of many of our clients. We have over 900 staff in Australia; about half are based in Queensland. They are located in 11 offices, including Brisbane, Toowoomba and Ipswich, places which experienced extensive flooding. All our staff are safe, although some have suffered flooding at home. None of our offices has been directly affected by floodwater, although access to a number of them was blocked for a period. As a result of this disruption staff down time in December was significant and increased in January. The arrival of Cyclone Yasi in northern Queensland in the last few hours has also affected us. Four of our offices were directly in its path, but it is too early even to understand the full physical effects of this.

As a result of these two natural disasters our activities in Queensland are likely to continue to be seriously disrupted for some months. We currently hope a more normal work load will return during the course of the second half, as our clients re-establish project requirements and we become involved in the early stages of reconstruction work.

In order to provide appropriate year on year comparisons when the 2010 results are announced, business segment information will be revised for prior periods as shown in Notes 2 and 3. After taking advice, the Board is conducting its annual review of the carrying value of goodwill on the Group's balance sheet on the basis that this business now comprises a single cash generating unit.

The recent extreme flooding in Queensland has seriously disrupted our business and those of many of our clients. We have over 900 staff in Australia; about half are based in Queensland. They are located in 11 offices, including Brisbane, Toowoomba and Ipswich, places which experienced extensive flooding. All our staff are safe, although some have suffered flooding at home. None of our offices has been directly affected by floodwater, although access to a number of them was blocked for a period. As a result of this disruption staff down time in December was significant and increased in January. The arrival of Cyclone Yasi in northern Queensland in the last few hours has also affected us. Four of our offices were directly in its path, but it is too early even to understand the full physical effects of this.

As a result of these two natural disasters our activities in Queensland are likely to continue to be seriously disrupted for some months. We currently hope a more normal work load will return during the course of the second half, as our clients re-establish project requirements and we become involved in the early stages of reconstruction work.

Notification of Announcement of 2010 Results and Segment Changes Trading and Commercial Update

03 February 2011

("RPS" or "the Group")

RPS's 2010 results announcement will be made on 2 March 2011.

On the basis of the Group's unaudited full year management accounts the Board of RPS believes that the 2010 results will show profit (before tax and amortisation) in line with the consensus of published forecasts. (Note 1). Net bank debt at the year end was about £32 million, after another year of strong cash conversion. The Group continues to progress its strategy successfully and has signed heads of terms to acquire two Energy sector businesses, one in the US and one in the UK/US. If both complete the total investment would be about £28m, on terms that are similar to other transactions we have undertaken.

In our Interim Management Statement dated 28 October 2010 we announced that in order to ensure a robust Planning and Development business we were merging our British, Irish and Northern Ireland businesses. The integration process was successfully completed before the year end and accordingly we will report the results of one business, Planning and Development: UK and Ireland in the Report and Accounts for 2010.

Four of our offices were directly in its path, but it is too early even to understand the full physical effects of this.

As a result of these two natural disasters our activities in Queensland are likely to continue to be seriously disrupted for some months. We currently hope a more normal work load will return during the course of the second half, as our clients re-establish project requirements and we become involved in the early stages of reconstruction work.

Notification of Announcement of 2010 Results and Segment Changes Trading and Commercial Update

03 February 2011

("RPS" or "the Group")

RPS's 2010 results announcement will be made on 2 March 2011.

On the basis of the Group's unaudited full year management accounts the Board of RPS believes that the 2010 results will show profit (before tax and amortisation) in line with the consensus of published forecasts. (Note 1). Net bank debt at the year end was about £32 million, after another year of strong cash conversion. The Group continues to progress its strategy successfully and has signed heads of terms to acquire two Energy sector businesses, one in the US and one in the UK/US. If both complete the total investment would be about £28m, on terms that are similar to other transactions we have undertaken.

In our Interim Management Statement dated 28 October 2010 we announced that in order to ensure a robust Planning and Development business we were merging our British, Irish and Northern Ireland businesses. The integration process was successfully completed before the year end and accordingly we will report the results of one business, Planning and Development: UK and Ireland in the Report and Accounts for 2010. In order to provide appropriate year on year comparisons when the 2010 results are announced, business segment information will be revised for prior periods as shown in Notes 2 and 3. After taking advice, the Board is conducting its annual review of the carrying value of goodwill on the Group's balance sheet on the basis that this business now comprises a single cash generating unit.

The recent extreme flooding in Queensland has seriously disrupted our business and those of many of our clients. We have over 900 staff in Australia; about half are based in Queensland. They are located in 11 offices, including Brisbane, Toowoomba and Ipswich, places which experienced extensive flooding. All our staff are safe, although some have suffered flooding at home. None of our offices has been directly affected by floodwater, although access to a number of them was blocked for a period. As a result of this disruption staff down time in December was significant and increased in January. The arrival of Cyclone Yasi in northern Queensland in the last few hours has also affected us. Four of our offices were directly in its path, but it is too early even to understand the full physical effects of this.
