Company Overview

Business Description
Origin Energy (ORG) is an integrated energy company focused on gas and oil exploration and production, power generation and energy retailing in Australia. Its key operating segments include oil & gas exploration and production, LNG operation, energy retailing and power generations. It also conducts the business in New Zealand through a 53.1% investment in Contact Energy.
Strategy Analysis
ORG looks towards a sustainable approach to developing the growth of the business. The focus is on maintaining its position as a leading Australasian integrated energy company that participates in most segments of the supply chain. The company seeks to deliver market leading performance for shareholders by identifying, developing and operating businesses which deliver value to customers. It also focuses on developing and procuring competitive sources of energy and related products and services to better meet customer energy needs. Origin Energy reported NPAT down 34% to $524.0m for the half year ended 31 December 2012. The key factors contributing to the decrease in statutory profit include: lower underlying profit; a lower net gain on items related to Australia Pacific LNG; and a net decrease in the fair value of financial instruments during the half year while a net increase was recorded in the prior half year. Revenues from ordinary activities were $7.38bn, up 14% from last year. Diluted EPS was 47.9 cents compared to 73.7 cents last year. Net operating cash flow was $790.0m compared to $758.0m last year. The interim dividend declared was 25 cents, in line with 25 cents last year. The company expects the regulatory and market competitive pressures that have affected the half year result in Energy Markets to continue into the second half of the 2013 financial year.
