2014 was a positive year for RINA. We ended the year optimistic and
well-placed to take advantage of a recovering world economy.
Turnover for the year was up strongly at 333m Euro, although
EBITDA at about 38m Euros was marginally impacted by the costs
of integrating acquisitions. A strong drive to hold down costs and
increase efficiency across the group helped us to retain, and in most
areas, increase our margins.
The number of markets and countries in which we operate increased
during 2014, and all of these showed positive signs of growth. That
allowed the group to bid for, and win, larger contracts with larger
Clients on larger projects. Geographically we extended our footprint
and were able to provide services previously centred on Italy into a
wide range of new countries. We won contracts to supply inspection
services for a major port development in Turkmenistan, for a feasibility
study for the Mumbai Metro extension, for inspection services for
Petrobras in Brazil and verification for a major floating gas project in
Indonesia.
In our traditional markets we also gained in size of Client and
project, extending our leading position in the market for cruise ships
by being selected to class two mega cruise ships for MSC Cruises
to be built in Italy. New services for cruise ships and ferries which
go beyond class proved popular and will be further developed and
rolled out to more Clients in 2015. Indonesia was again a bright spot
internationally where we gained substantial maritime Clients. RINA
was technical advisor to the Italian Government and the shipowner
for the successful removal of the Costa Concordia wreck.
Internally we began to see the results of the restructuring completed
in 2013. The management effort devoted to implementing the new
structures was redirected to developing and marketing services.
That showed in the wider range of projects and Clients we were
able to gain. Grouping our consulting engineering activities under
the D’APPOLONIA brand proved successful. The credibility of the
D’APPOLONIA name was demonstrated as our new Washington
subsidiary was able to help win successful tenders for business with
major donor and international financial organisations. We expect that
to grow strongly in 2015.
Chairman & CEO
Report
annual report 2014
Our strategy is to grow organically but also to build a position in
new sectors and new countries by strategic acquisition of established
businesses. In 2014 we welcomed two new shareholders, Intesa
Sanpaolo and VEI Capital, who together gave us a capital injection
and access to acquisition capital of 100m Euro. Together with group
reserves and bank support that gives us a substantial growth fund.
Four small acquisitions in 2014 helped us to improve our certification
coverage in Brazil, strengthen our food testing ability in North Africa,
consolidate our leadership in construction certification in Italy
and enter the growing Canadian marine market. We also invested
in integrating Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) into the group. The
challenge was to focus the deep expertise of CSM onto Client service
while improving efficiency and reducing costs. By the year end that
process was in place and CSM was able to open a new laboratory in
Sardinia and win substantial new contracts.
In 2015 we will continue with smaller acquisitions which will bring
us specific expertise or local market penetration to fill gaps in our
global network. But the focus for our acquisition team is more
ambitious and our intention is to identify and capture one or more
large international companies which will bring transformative growth
to the group.
We ended 2014 with RINA in a strong position but with global markets
shaken up by a falling oil price. It is too soon to know how low the
oil price will go or for how long energy will be cheap. For RINA this
situation brings opportunities and challenges. The challenges are that
upstream energy projects where we have a growing business will be
slowed or stopped and that the economies of oil-producing nations,
where we have new business, will also slow. The opportunities come
in two areas. In uncertain times companies around the world have
greater need for certainty in what they plan to do and greater need
to save costs by being more efficient. RINA’s business is to provide
certainty and increase efficiency, so that helps us. And low energy
prices will stimulate the developed economies in particular. As the
global economy grows, so does business for our group.
I am happy to report that RINA is a well-structured, well-motivated
and well-funded group strongly placed to face the challenges and
take advantage of the opportunities which 2015 will bring.
Ugo Salerno
CHAIRMAN & CEO, RINA
RINA is a global group that provides TIC Services (Testing, Inspection,
Classification and Certification) and CE Services (Consulting
Engineering, Design, Project Management and Control, Operability
Assurance). In 2014 we operated in more than sixty - countries
through a network of 163 offices, technical centres, centres of
excellence and laboratories.
RINA has its global headquarters in Genoa, Italy, where it was founded
over 150 years ago as Registro Italiano Navale. Today it has built on
its original mission of ship safety so that it provides expertise in a
wide range of markets grouped under four main Businesses: Energy,
Marine, Business Assurance and Transport and Infrastructure.
To ensure transparency and independence RINA operates through
two independent companies:
RINA SERVICES coordinates the group TIC Companies to deliver
TIC Services, like: ship classification; system, product and personnel
certification; testing; inspection and training.
D’APPOLONIA coordinates the group CE Companies to deliver
CE Services, like: consulting engineering; design and feasibility
studies; operations and maintenance; consultancy and strong
expertise in environmental issues.
Moreover, Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) delivers innovation and
testing in the field of materials. It is an independent research and
development centre for steel and new materials and also provides
laboratory and testing services for materials and products, with a
strong focus on the energy industry.
Three key values underpin all our services. These are a continual drive
for innovation and respect for the environment and sustainability. We
look at everything we do, every Client and every project, and measure
them against these three criteria, then we ask ourselves how we can
improve all three.
One more important thing links everything we do. Our 2,760 staff are
drawn from a wide variety of nations and professional backgrounds,
but they are all highly skilled, they all like their work and they are all
proud and excited to be part of a growing and globalising group. That
reflects in the service our Clients receive.
In 2014 RINA consistently led customer satisfaction measures when
compared to our competitors. That performance reflects the personal
service and the real desire to share our expertise to help others which
are RINA’s real strengths.

2014 was a year of learning for RINA SERVICES. After a year of
looking inward and reorganisation in 2013 we were learning how
to look outwards to new markets. Learning the power of our matrix
system to harness synergies and identify opportunities. Learning the
strength of our expertise and the demand for it in new industries and
new countries. And learning the real satisfaction of achieving new
contracts with major Clients in these markets.
Highlights of the year included being selected for a range of TIC
contracts for Brazil’s Petrobras, concluding our first major international
inspection and verification contract in the field of transport and
infrastructure for a port development in Turkmenistan and achieving
recognition as single-point providers of business assurance for global
groups such as Pirelli. Another key contract was with Total for the
development of an oil field in Italy.
The major change in delivery of TIC Services was in their
internationalisation. Marine services have always been global, but
in 2014 we were able to use that network to roll out Business
Assurance, Energy and other services globally. We saw growth in
China, Indonesia, USA, Brazil, UAE and Northern Europe.
We kept a good eye on what we were doing, and how our customers
reacted to that. Better monitoring of internal data helped us to
streamline processes and reduce resource use while improving
overall activity. Externally, customer satisfaction surveys consistently
put RINA SERVICES at the top level.
Three niche acquisitions helped us to fill gaps in our expertise and
coverage. LAB 21 brought us food testing capability in Tunisia, ICIC
built on our construction certification business in Italy and BRACERT
improved our business assurance outreach in northern and central
Brazil. In Canada Hayes Stuart joined the group, giving us a platform
to expand marine services in North America.
A major driver for certification is the number and range of
accreditations held. RINA SERVICES focused on increasing both
during 2014, helping us to appeal to a wider range of Clients.
Ourtraditionalcoremarinebusinessdidwellin2014. Westrengthened
our position as the number one class for passenger ferries and as a
major class for cruise ships. We won the class for two mega cruise
ships for MSC Cruises to be built at Fincantieri. But marine is no
longer simply class, it provides a wide and growing range of services.
The merchant sector is already benefitting from our risk identification
and management schemes and our energy-saving software.
We enter 2015 with what we have learnt is a strong platform for
growth - a well-connected global network, a strong portfolio of
accreditations, services and a highly-motivated staff. We have the
examples of successful contracts in 2014 to follow. With the world
economy set to grow we expect to grow further and faster in 2015.

CEO, RINA SERVICES
Engineers like tuning, refining and adjusting processes and machinery
to improve performance. They also like to watch trends and gradients
rather than rely on point measurements. For D’APPOLONIA 2014
was a year of fine tuning and positive trends.
The tuning was required to get the whole new organisation working
smoothly. In the previous two years we have had the merger and
integration with RINA and the reorganisation to include all the group’s
engineering and consulting activities in D’APPOLONIA. With that
completed we had to spend time and effort to get the new operations
and organisation running smoothly.
The positive trend was organic growth. Over the year D’APPOLONIA
showed a six per cent growth, despite the still fragile world economy
in which we operate. Our people put in a lot of effort to keep their
external focus and to follow the two prongs of our strategy - project
upsizing and internationalisation.
Upsizing means we began bidding for major projects altogether rather
than bidding for specific skill-based areas of major projects. That was
successful and D’APPOLONIA won some substantial contracts where
we take strategic responsibility, provide the studies and later can
supply the specific expertise for implementation.
The internationalisation saw us open new offices in Uruguay, United
States and Mozambique and take on contracts in new countries
including Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Uruguay, Mozambique,
Kenya and Egypt. We now have major offices in India, Turkey, the
Emirates and Romania, able to promote the entire company and
provide our full range of services.
The wider network and the larger size of projects led during 2014 to
a changing perception of D’APPOLONIA in the eyes of prospective
Clients. They began to see us as more dynamic, more able to move
quickly and more able to manage large complex projects at a strategic
level. That helped us to win a major international donors’ funded
development project in Egypt’s Golden Triangle, to gain extensive
railway work in Scandinavia, to develop the LNG project in Uruguay
and to expand our work with GasCo in Abu Dhabi.
We enter 2015 with a strong pipeline of work and still on a strong
growth trend. That gives us the confidence to grow our staff,
especially in our international offices where we will be hiring more
local engineers. There is a positive attitude in our engineers who
have been able to open their minds as internal barriers have been
eliminated. That has led to a virtuous circle of more ideas, more bids
for work and more successes in obtaining contracts. That creates
opportunities for good people in D’APPOLONIA to grow and for us to
grow globally. We are well placed to keep the upward trend in 2015,
and also well-placed for a European recovery which would generate a
lot of work for us in our home markets.

Roberto Carpaneto
CEO, D’APPOLONIA
In 2014 the group acquired more people, more money and more
ways to manage both.
In mid-year two Italian investors, Intesa Sanpaolo and VEI Capital,
became shareholders. Their capital injection and the funds they have
allocated for growth acquisitions total 100m Euro. Alongside that we
have bank support and strong internal cash generation which gives us
a war chest of around 250m Euro. We spent part of that in 2014 on
four small acquisitions but much of the funding is aimed at finding
a partner or acquisition which will bring a major new step forward for
the group in 2015.
With the new companies and their people RINA increased its staff
to almost 3,000 globally in 2014. We want RINA’s staff to take
advantage of the global mobility and opportunities that a fast-growing
group can offer. So we put in place a new job contract and clarified
training pathways and resources.
As the group grows in geographical outreach and into new industries
and markets we are constantly looking for ways to simplify and
standardise procedures internally. That led in 2014 to us changing
up a gear in transforming our IT platform and ERP platform. A long-
running ERP roll-out has been upgraded to a new project, which
we call RiNEW. Under the RiNEW banner we are drilling down into
how we do everything and setting up one simple standard procedure
for every task. That will be implemented globally. This will be done
on a global and unified IT platform which we are developing with
Microsoft and Accenture.
We expect our Italian companies and offices to be live on the RiNEW
platform and processes in 2016 and to have our global companies on
the same system by 2017.
With the new business platform we will know better what our people
and money are doing and we will speed interaction with Clients and
suppliers. Our colleagues will spend less time on internal procedures
and on paperwork. That all reduces costs and improves income.
That will feed down to the bottom line and our cash flow. And that
strengthens our ability to grow.
We have set ambitious growth targets for the forthcoming years with
the aim of achieving a much wider shareholding and public listing.
With the right people, the right money and the right systems in place
I am confident we will achieve that.

rich Golden Triangle.
RINA SERVICES was awarded design
review, inspection and certification
services for a major port development
project to be built in Turkmenistan.
The global energy market was transformed in the second half of 2014
as oil prices fell strongly. The falling oil price slowed or stopped some
new offshore projects and gave pause for thought to offshore LNG
and renewable energy developers. However, the lower price focussed
attention on reducing operational expenditure and on asset integrity
maintenance, both areas where RINA provides strong services. The
low oil price is also stimulating downstream developments, creating
opportunities for RINA.
GLOBAL EXPANSION
Both RINA SERVICES and D’APPOLONIA expanded global energy
services during 2014. RINA SERVICES set up new energy hubs
to meet demand for TIC services in Azerbaijan, Singapore, South
Italy, Brazil, Ghana, Congo and Slovakia. D’APPOLONIA set up a
company in Uruguay to service the LNG import and regasification
project being developed by Gas Sayago. D’APPOLONIA also set up
in Mumbai, to service growing Indian contracts and more widely,
the Asian market, and started a branch in Mozambique to deliver
engineering services to the offshore gas discoveries. Growth in Abu
Dhabi, where D’APPOLONIA extended work with Gasco and Dragon
Oil, made this office one of the largest consulting engineering centres
of D’APPOLONIA outside Italy.
RINA’s specialist materials subsidiary Centro Sviluppo Materiali
(CSM) opened a new testing and research laboratory in Sardinia
equipped with the most innovative instruments to meet the global
demand for testing and research of offshore oil drilling connections.
In 2014 RINA SERVICES adopted a new approach for the
classification, verification and certification of fixed offshore platforms.
The new rules will be published in 2015 and will give cradle-to-grave
guidance to operators and choices on inspection and maintenance
strategies and will extend to re-use and decommissioning of assets.
D’APPOLONIA extended its structural health monitoring capability for
the acquisition of data on the structural health of offshore platforms,
pipelines and civil infrastructures by combining engineering know-
how, data management skills and the capabilities of its electronics
division.
GROWING DEMAND
Despite the low oil price new gas projects are expected to continue
in 2015 and this will create demand for both TIC and CE services.
With its network, divided between energy hubs and engineering
offices, RINA companies are well placed to support these projects.
Ageing infrastructure and a squeeze on capital expenditure will also
create demand for asset integrity management and structural health
monitoring.

Risk Based Inspection Plan for Nghi Son
D’APPOLONIA was chosen to develop
an Risk Based Inspection (RBI) plan for
the large greenfield Nghi Son refinery
development in Vietnam.
Although globally shipowners and shipyards had a mixed year, with
some sectors under pressure from over tonnaging and low freight
rates, RINA’s traditional marine business picked up strongly during
2014.
GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT
Life came back into the cruise industry and several major orders were
placed. As the global leader in passenger ferries and the joint global
leader in ferries and cruise ships combined RINA SERVICES was
chosen for prestige newbuilding cruise projects.
RINA also focussed on providing value-added services to shipowners,
always aiming to reduce costs, reduce risks and improve fleet
performance.
RINA acquired Hayes Stuart, a marine surveying company in
Canada, as a platform for entry into the growing marine market in
North America. Canada was one of the flag states which extended
delegations of statutory survey powers to RINA SERVICES during
2014. As part of the growing internationalisation of RINA’s services
the other flag states giving delegations were Azerbaijan, Bangladesh,
Chile, Georgia, Mexico, Oman, Paraguay, Russia and South Africa.
A new marine office was opened in Malaysia to support the fast growing
local marine industry and a Centre of Excellence for Containerships
was established in Hamburg.
The yacht industry globally had a strong year and as the class leader
RINA SERVICES was very active, with both deliveries and orders
for major new yachts highlighting new green technology and higher
levels of comfort.
Navies around the world chose Italian yards and RINA class for new
warships, with especially high demand for sophisticated multi-role
patrol vessels. RINA SERVICES is working to extend the way naval
vessels are classed. The intention is to help the navies reduce costs,
help the yards reduce duplicate checks during construction and
help navies focus on the detail of combat systems rather than the
integration issues associated with them.

Floating offshore units have a specific focus within RINA. They
include offshore support vessels, mobile drilling rigs, offshore field
construction units, oil and gas import and export offshore terminals
and floating production and storage units. Class and class related
specialist services to this sector grew throughout 2014, totalling at
the year’s end about 1.45m gt and 320 units in operation or ongoing
new building and conversion projects.
A Condition Assessment Programme (CAP) for pipe-layers and heavy-
lifting units was launched during 2014.
GROWING FLEET
During 2014 the classed fleet grew to 5,166 ships totalling 34m gt.
That growth came from ships in service and new buildings from many
different nations. Some highlights include:
¡¡ The classed fleet of Indonesian owners grew to over 350 ships,
totalling 1.1m gt
¡¡ Over 100 ships owned by North European shipowners entered
RINA class
¡¡ The classed fleet of Greek owners grew by 500,000 gt.
The strong service ethic of RINA’s global network led shipowners
to move 400 ships totalling 2.6m gt to RINA class during 2014.
Reflecting RINA SERVICES’ leading position in the ferry field ten of
these were ro-ro passenger ferries. Two were major units owned by
Denmark’s DFDS, two were major units for Italian operator SNAV and
one was a fast ferry for Greek operator Jambo Jet Maritime.
In the offshore support vessel sector thirty-two vessels were moved
into RINA class including 11 units for Indonesian operators and two
for Vestland Marine, one of which is a seismic vessel.

HEALTHY ORDER BOOK
Although globally total orders for new ships were down in 2014,
RINA took a good share of classification of new orders, especially in
the cruise, bulk and tanker sector.
During the year RINA SERVICES was awarded the contracts to class
300 newbuildings totalling 2m gt, bringing the total order book at
the year end to 680 ships totalling over 4.6m gt. Eighty-eight per
cent of the orders are to be built in Asian shipyards. By tonnage one
third are bulk carriers, a quarter containerships and twelve per cent
cruise ships.
But tonnage does not tell the whole story as the cruise orders were
significant. They included two mega cruise ships for MSC Cruises. The
5,300-passenger vessels will be built by Fincantieri and will include
innovative open spaces and very high environmental performance.
RINA SERVICES is also classing a significant jumboisation project

Best Management Scheme
The RINA Rules for the Certification of
Best Management Scheme of Companies
Owning or Managing Passengers or
Cargo Ships define a new and innovative
certification scheme created by RINA
SERVICES to reward the company
management system in its entirety.
In particular, the goal-based Best
Management Scheme recognizes
management excellence that goes
beyond the requirements of statutory
rules and codes such as ISM, ISPS
and MLC 2006. Every management
system has benefits for the company
in the specific area concerned (quality,
environment, health and safety); a
global management system amplifies
the benefit of each single management
system. The scheme also encourages
implementation of additional items for
areas already managed and coverage of
areas not yet considered.
The scheme covers personnel ashore
and on board, critical operations on
board, management of change, new
building issues, incident, emergency,
food chain and sanitation services,
quality, environment, security, health
and safety and social accountability.

Main Projects
REFRESH Project
This project will address the aspects
of retrofitting that are essential for
improving energy efficiency on-board.
The central concept of REFRESH
is dynamic energy modelling, the
simulation of energy production,
consumption and losses over time. The
aim of the project is to implement a
decision support tool that will allow on
board and ashore personnel to monitor
the performance of the ship and adopt
appropriate practices as a function of
its operational profile.
Green Cranes
The objective is to test new technologies
and alternative fuels (i.e. LNG,
Hydrogen, Diesel TIER 4 and other
ecofuels) including pilot deployment in
existing port container terminals (PCTs),
thereby contributing to mitigating
climate change and reducing GHG
emissions.

meets MCA LY3 requirements on the
certification of masts and rigs.
For the Navy sector, two new Rules have
been issued:
¡¡ Rules for the certification of Combat
System Physical Integration
¡¡ Rules for the Classification of Existing
Naval Ships
The scope of the first Rules is to extend
the traditional classification approach
to a new area of the ship with the aim of
certifying that the platform is ready for
the installation on board of the combat
system.
The second Rules have been developed
to allow classification of existing ships
that were not built under class or that
have been out of class for long periods
taking into account the evidence and
records of positive experience provided
by the Navy.
INCASS Project-InspectionCapabilities

can improve, promote and simplify the
use of multimodal short-sea services
by using Motorways of the Sea (MoS).
The global project is establishing a
European network of integrated MoS
transport chains, taking full advantage
of existing maritime links and facilities,
connecting maritime, road and rail
resources optimally.
RINA SERVICES as Implementing Body
for the Italian Ministry of Transport is
involved in the following activities:
¡¡ Interoperability in door to door Motor-
Ways of the Sea supply chains
¡¡ Trade and transport facilitation in
Motor-Ways of the Sea
¡¡ Support for regulation compliance
systems in Motor-Ways of the Sea.
Single point of Failure
Passenger ship operators also benefited from the Single
Point of Failure standard approach.
The scope of this analysis is to assess the risk associated
with a single failure of particular equipment or systems
and to identify the most appropriate measures to be
implemented. The analysis evaluates the ship’s system
availability in the case of any single failure. The systems
to be analysed (such as propulsion and safety systems,
navigation systems, sanitation, hotel services), the
consequences to be considered (on personnel, rather
than on environment and assets), and the definition of
likelihood are decided in cooperation with the customers
depending on their objectives.

Marine LNG Fuel Training
Basic and advanced LNG as Marine Fuel
training courses were developed. On the
assumption that the crew does not have
any prior knowledge of gas, gas engines
and gas systems, the main objective
of the courses is to provide the basic
understanding of Liquid Natural Gas,
and the specifics of its use on board as
fuel. The training focuses on the use of
protective equipment provided on board,
and on the procedures, appropriate to
their duties, necessary under normal
and emergency conditions.
In 2014 RINA continued to expand both its range of accreditations
and certification services in the business assurance sector, and also
expand the geographical footprint of its existing services. There is
continuing demand for RINA to enter new areas of certification and
to deliver existing certification in new countries.
The growing demand was one of the reasons for the acquisitions of
BRACERT, in Brazil, in order to expand certification there, of ICIC
in Italy to expand certification in the construction and infrastructure
sector, and of LAB21 in Tunisia to expand food and environmental
testing. New areas of development with ongoing operations are Far
East and Gulf countries with specific actions in China, Indonesia,
Mongolia and UAE.

ENGINEERING FOR ASSET INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT
Asset integrity is a major concern in high risk and capital intensive
businesses such as the oil and gas industry and infrastructures. The
growth in the number of fixed platforms reaching the end of their
designed life is focusing the attention of oil and gas operators on
effective Integrity Monitoring practices. The falling oil price is a
further reason to rely on asset integrity in order to reduce operational
expenditure and to extend the operating lives of existing facilities.
SHM for Dragon Oil
D’APPOLONIA provides tailored Structural Health Monitoring
(SHM) systems, delivering an increase in active safety and a
significant improvement in survey optimization and in Life Extension
assessments, based on monitoring data analysis. D’APPOLONIA is
currently under contract with Dragon Oil to provide SHM for the LAM
28 platform, located in the southern Caspian Sea, off Turkmenistan.
The assessment activity is supplied through structural monitoring
campaigns at the site performed along with structural reinforcement
activities. The aim of this work is to enhance safety by demonstrating
the effectiveness of upgrades based on the experimental results and
to update the related numerical model.
SHM solutions allow Dragon Oil to reduce operational risks and to
extend the operational lifetime of the platform, while reducing costs
and optimizing capital expenditure.
Asset Integrity Management for Eni
Eni awarded D’APPOLONIA a new three year frame agreement for
worldwide site supervision services. Eni also chose D’APPOLONIA for
a corrosion and material engineering contract, which is an important
component of asset integrity management services.
A recovering world economy, increased demand for urban metro
systems and new rail lines, a greater environmental awareness of
the impact of new projects and a stronger presence of RINA in
international transport and infrastructure markets created new
opportunities for the group in 2014.
MARKET OUTLOOK
RINA’s Transport and Infrastructures (T&I) business lines brings
together a very wide range of skills and competences including
property and infrastructure inspection and site supervision, design
review and feasibility studies, energy and environmental assessment
and specific expertise in areas such as railways, metros and container
certification.
International growth in the transport and infrastructure business
lines was good in both TIC and CE services. A major inspection and
verification project for a new port in Turkmenistan, certification of
the high-speed train network in Denmark, feasibility studies for the
Mumbai Metro extension and technical due diligence for a new steel
plant in Ecuador are all examples of new countries where transport
and infrastructure services were delivered in 2014.
The role of independent environmental consultant on behalf of major
lenders was strengthened with a major contract covering a new
railway in Mozambique. The groundwork for a major contract with
Egypt’s Industrial Development Authority to lead the development of
a master plan for Egypt’s mineral and energy rich Golden Triangle was
done during 2014.
In 2015 a new T&I hub in the UAE will boost the support network
for third party inspection services such as design verification and
site supervision across the Middle East. Major investments in railway
systems in Central-Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia and South
America will all create demand for RINA’s railway expertise, which can
increasingly be delivered through the growing RINA global network.

all phases from design to construction.
The check aims at verifying the
completeness of the documentation
and its conformity to the rules to
achieve granting of the financing and/
or the warranty.
In particular, through this service, it
is possible to check the documents
concerning the financial sustainability
of the promoting subject (both private
and public), the data concerning the
project and the technical and economic
documentation in order to protect the
project feasibility. The main aspects
checked are the completeness of the
documents and their content, the
congruence among the technical,
accounting and contractual documents
and a cross verification between acts
and documents.

  • 4. 2 2014 was a positive year for RINA. We ended the year optimistic and well-placed to take advantage of a recovering world economy. Turnover for the year was up strongly at 333m Euro, although EBITDA at about 38m Euros was marginally impacted by the costs of integrating acquisitions. A strong drive to hold down costs and increase efficiency across the group helped us to retain, and in most areas, increase our margins. The number of markets and countries in which we operate increased during 2014, and all of these showed positive signs of growth. That allowed the group to bid for, and win, larger contracts with larger Clients on larger projects. Geographically we extended our footprint and were able to provide services previously centred on Italy into a wide range of new countries. We won contracts to supply inspection services for a major port development in Turkmenistan, for a feasibility study for the Mumbai Metro extension, for inspection services for Petrobras in Brazil and verification for a major floating gas project in Indonesia. In our traditional markets we also gained in size of Client and project, extending our leading position in the market for cruise ships by being selected to class two mega cruise ships for MSC Cruises to be built in Italy. New services for cruise ships and ferries which go beyond class proved popular and will be further developed and rolled out to more Clients in 2015. Indonesia was again a bright spot internationally where we gained substantial maritime Clients. RINA was technical advisor to the Italian Government and the shipowner for the successful removal of the Costa Concordia wreck. Internally we began to see the results of the restructuring completed in 2013. The management effort devoted to implementing the new structures was redirected to developing and marketing services. That showed in the wider range of projects and Clients we were able to gain. Grouping our consulting engineering activities under the D’APPOLONIA brand proved successful. The credibility of the D’APPOLONIA name was demonstrated as our new Washington subsidiary was able to help win successful tenders for business with major donor and international financial organisations. We expect that to grow strongly in 2015. Chairman & CEO Report annual report 2014
  • 5. Our strategy is to grow organically but also to build a position in new sectors and new countries by strategic acquisition of established businesses. In 2014 we welcomed two new shareholders, Intesa Sanpaolo and VEI Capital, who together gave us a capital injection and access to acquisition capital of 100m Euro. Together with group reserves and bank support that gives us a substantial growth fund. Four small acquisitions in 2014 helped us to improve our certification coverage in Brazil, strengthen our food testing ability in North Africa, consolidate our leadership in construction certification in Italy and enter the growing Canadian marine market. We also invested in integrating Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) into the group. The challenge was to focus the deep expertise of CSM onto Client service while improving efficiency and reducing costs. By the year end that process was in place and CSM was able to open a new laboratory in Sardinia and win substantial new contracts. In 2015 we will continue with smaller acquisitions which will bring us specific expertise or local market penetration to fill gaps in our global network. But the focus for our acquisition team is more ambitious and our intention is to identify and capture one or more large international companies which will bring transformative growth to the group. We ended 2014 with RINA in a strong position but with global markets shaken up by a falling oil price. It is too soon to know how low the oil price will go or for how long energy will be cheap. For RINA this situation brings opportunities and challenges. The challenges are that upstream energy projects where we have a growing business will be slowed or stopped and that the economies of oil-producing nations, where we have new business, will also slow. The opportunities come in two areas. In uncertain times companies around the world have greater need for certainty in what they plan to do and greater need to save costs by being more efficient. RINA’s business is to provide certainty and increase efficiency, so that helps us. And low energy prices will stimulate the developed economies in particular. As the global economy grows, so does business for our group. I am happy to report that RINA is a well-structured, well-motivated and well-funded group strongly placed to face the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities which 2015 will bring. Ugo Salerno CHAIRMAN & CEO, RINA
  • 6. RINA is a global group that provides TIC Services (Testing, Inspection, Classification and Certification) and CE Services (Consulting Engineering, Design, Project Management and Control, Operability Assurance). In 2014 we operated in more than sixty - countries through a network of 163 offices, technical centres, centres of excellence and laboratories. RINA has its global headquarters in Genoa, Italy, where it was founded over 150 years ago as Registro Italiano Navale. Today it has built on its original mission of ship safety so that it provides expertise in a wide range of markets grouped under four main Businesses: Energy, Marine, Business Assurance and Transport and Infrastructure. To ensure transparency and independence RINA operates through two independent companies: RINA SERVICES coordinates the group TIC Companies to deliver TIC Services, like: ship classification; system, product and personnel certification; testing; inspection and training. D’APPOLONIA coordinates the group CE Companies to deliver CE Services, like: consulting engineering; design and feasibility studies; operations and maintenance; consultancy and strong expertise in environmental issues. Moreover, Centro Sviluppo Materiali (CSM) delivers innovation and testing in the field of materials. It is an independent research and development centre for steel and new materials and also provides laboratory and testing services for materials and products, with a strong focus on the energy industry. Three key values underpin all our services. These are a continual drive for innovation and respect for the environment and sustainability. We look at everything we do, every Client and every project, and measure them against these three criteria, then we ask ourselves how we can improve all three. One more important thing links everything we do. Our 2,760 staff are drawn from a wide variety of nations and professional backgrounds, but they are all highly skilled, they all like their work and they are all proud and excited to be part of a growing and globalising group. That reflects in the service our Clients receive. In 2014 RINA consistently led customer satisfaction measures when compared to our competitors. That performance reflects the personal service and the real desire to share our expertise to help others which are RINA’s real strengths. what we do and where we are 4 annual report 2014
  • 8. 2014 was a year of learning for RINA SERVICES. After a year of looking inward and reorganisation in 2013 we were learning how to look outwards to new markets. Learning the power of our matrix system to harness synergies and identify opportunities. Learning the strength of our expertise and the demand for it in new industries and new countries. And learning the real satisfaction of achieving new contracts with major Clients in these markets. Highlights of the year included being selected for a range of TIC contracts for Brazil’s Petrobras, concluding our first major international inspection and verification contract in the field of transport and infrastructure for a port development in Turkmenistan and achieving recognition as single-point providers of business assurance for global groups such as Pirelli. Another key contract was with Total for the development of an oil field in Italy. The major change in delivery of TIC Services was in their internationalisation. Marine services have always been global, but in 2014 we were able to use that network to roll out Business Assurance, Energy and other services globally. We saw growth in China, Indonesia, USA, Brazil, UAE and Northern Europe. We kept a good eye on what we were doing, and how our customers reacted to that. Better monitoring of internal data helped us to streamline processes and reduce resource use while improving overall activity. Externally, customer satisfaction surveys consistently put RINA SERVICES at the top level. Three niche acquisitions helped us to fill gaps in our expertise and coverage. LAB 21 brought us food testing capability in Tunisia, ICIC built on our construction certification business in Italy and BRACERT improved our business assurance outreach in northern and central Brazil. In Canada Hayes Stuart joined the group, giving us a platform to expand marine services in North America. A major driver for certification is the number and range of accreditations held. RINA SERVICES focused on increasing both during 2014, helping us to appeal to a wider range of Clients. Ourtraditionalcoremarinebusinessdidwellin2014. Westrengthened our position as the number one class for passenger ferries and as a major class for cruise ships. We won the class for two mega cruise ships for MSC Cruises to be built at Fincantieri. But marine is no longer simply class, it provides a wide and growing range of services. The merchant sector is already benefitting from our risk identification and management schemes and our energy-saving software. We enter 2015 with what we have learnt is a strong platform for growth - a well-connected global network, a strong portfolio of accreditations, services and a highly-motivated staff. We have the examples of successful contracts in 2014 to follow. With the world economy set to grow we expect to grow further and faster in 2015.

  • 10. Engineers like tuning, refining and adjusting processes and machinery to improve performance. They also like to watch trends and gradients rather than rely on point measurements. For D’APPOLONIA 2014 was a year of fine tuning and positive trends. The tuning was required to get the whole new organisation working smoothly. In the previous two years we have had the merger and integration with RINA and the reorganisation to include all the group’s engineering and consulting activities in D’APPOLONIA. With that completed we had to spend time and effort to get the new operations and organisation running smoothly. The positive trend was organic growth. Over the year D’APPOLONIA showed a six per cent growth, despite the still fragile world economy in which we operate. Our people put in a lot of effort to keep their external focus and to follow the two prongs of our strategy - project upsizing and internationalisation. Upsizing means we began bidding for major projects altogether rather than bidding for specific skill-based areas of major projects. That was successful and D’APPOLONIA won some substantial contracts where we take strategic responsibility, provide the studies and later can supply the specific expertise for implementation. The internationalisation saw us open new offices in Uruguay, United States and Mozambique and take on contracts in new countries including Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Uruguay, Mozambique, Kenya and Egypt. We now have major offices in India, Turkey, the Emirates and Romania, able to promote the entire company and provide our full range of services. The wider network and the larger size of projects led during 2014 to a changing perception of D’APPOLONIA in the eyes of prospective Clients. They began to see us as more dynamic, more able to move quickly and more able to manage large complex projects at a strategic level. That helped us to win a major international donors’ funded development project in Egypt’s Golden Triangle, to gain extensive railway work in Scandinavia, to develop the LNG project in Uruguay and to expand our work with GasCo in Abu Dhabi. We enter 2015 with a strong pipeline of work and still on a strong growth trend. That gives us the confidence to grow our staff, especially in our international offices where we will be hiring more local engineers. There is a positive attitude in our engineers who have been able to open their minds as internal barriers have been eliminated. That has led to a virtuous circle of more ideas, more bids for work and more successes in obtaining contracts. That creates opportunities for good people in D’APPOLONIA to grow and for us to grow globally. We are well placed to keep the upward trend in 2015, and also well-placed for a European recovery which would generate a lot of work for us in our home markets. CE Services 8 consulting engineering

  • 12. In 2014 the group acquired more people, more money and more ways to manage both. In mid-year two Italian investors, Intesa Sanpaolo and VEI Capital, became shareholders. Their capital injection and the funds they have allocated for growth acquisitions total 100m Euro. Alongside that we have bank support and strong internal cash generation which gives us a war chest of around 250m Euro. We spent part of that in 2014 on four small acquisitions but much of the funding is aimed at finding a partner or acquisition which will bring a major new step forward for the group in 2015. With the new companies and their people RINA increased its staff to almost 3,000 globally in 2014. We want RINA’s staff to take advantage of the global mobility and opportunities that a fast-growing group can offer. So we put in place a new job contract and clarified training pathways and resources. As the group grows in geographical outreach and into new industries and markets we are constantly looking for ways to simplify and standardise procedures internally. That led in 2014 to us changing up a gear in transforming our IT platform and ERP platform. A long- running ERP roll-out has been upgraded to a new project, which we call RiNEW. Under the RiNEW banner we are drilling down into how we do everything and setting up one simple standard procedure for every task. That will be implemented globally. This will be done on a global and unified IT platform which we are developing with Microsoft and Accenture. We expect our Italian companies and offices to be live on the RiNEW platform and processes in 2016 and to have our global companies on the same system by 2017. With the new business platform we will know better what our people and money are doing and we will speed interaction with Clients and suppliers. Our colleagues will spend less time on internal procedures and on paperwork. That all reduces costs and improves income. That will feed down to the bottom line and our cash flow. And that strengthens our ability to grow. We have set ambitious growth targets for the forthcoming years with the aim of achieving a much wider shareholding and public listing. With the right people, the right money and the right systems in place I am confident we will achieve that. Money and people 10 annual report 2014
