Background

On 21 August 2015, Sims reaffirmed its FY18 target of $321m EBIT and its guidance that underlying EBIT for FY16 would exceed $142m. On 8 September 2015, Sims confirmed “Results so far on track”, “FY18 target reviewed, realistic and reconfirmed”. However, on 12 November 2015, Sims announced its H116 was currently expected to be around break-even, effectively revising its guidance downward for FY16 underlying EBIT by more than 50% to about $70m. It also did not reconfirm its FY18 target. On 19 February 2016, Sims reported its underlying EBIT for H116 was a loss of $4.8m.

Nature of Claim

William Roberts allege Sims had no reasonable basis for its 21 August 2015 guidance.
