Rolls-Royce shares rise 18% due to new boss Tufan Erginbilgic’s turnaround plan

Yesterday’s roll-Royce shares rose thanks to the positive turnaround plan of his successor TufanErginbilgic and last year’s results.

The stock of the FTSE 100 engineering company closed up 25 1/2 p or 23.7 percent at 133p. Analysts calculated that Erginbilgic (63), has inherited a business in recovery.

They also purchased the line of the new chief executive, which stated that he has a strategy to catch up to rivals GE and Pratt & Whitney.

Rolls-Royce is a manufacturer of engines for Airbus and Boeing passenger planes, Typhoon fighter jets, Royal Navy warships, and submarines. It reported higher-than-expected revenues of PS12.7 billion, an increase of 16 percent, operating profits of 57% at PS652million, and net cash flows of PS505million, compared to a cash burn of almost PS1.5 billion in the previous year.

However, Erginbilgic, who shocked commentators and insiders last month by calling Rolls-Royce a “burning platform”, insists that it is “significantly underperforming” so “not fit for investment in the future”.

East was implicitly criticized by the new chief executive, who stated: “Rolls-Royce never had a granular strategic plan, at least not in five years.”

He declined to reveal the targets for a new strategic review and transformation plan, but he stated that those who doubt his abilities should examine the job he held as the head of the downstream division at BP from 2014 to 2020.

He stated that this was a larger turnaround project than Rolls-Royce’s in terms of the number of business units and employees involved and that he had “doubled profits” and “tripled returns”.
