Aggreko expects FY profit to be at the upper end of previous guidance as key markets are recovering.
EasyJet plunged to a £1.27bn loss in their FY results showing the extent of the impact of the pandemic on the British low-cost airline which had never before made an annual loss in its 25-year history. Their quarterly cash burn improved to £651m from £774m in the previous period.
Experian posted better-than-expected operating profit for H1, boosted by strength in the U.S. mortgage market and demand for its Ascend product.
HomeServe posted a 16% rise in H1 adjusted profit, helped by a surge in demand for home remodelling during COVID-19 lockdowns and they raised their interim dividend by 7%. Adjusted pretax profit rose to £33.1m (2019: £28.6m).
Imperial Brands reported higher FY sales as demand for tobacco offset a drop in its e-cigarette business. They reported FY adjusted group revenue of £7.99bn, up 0.8%. Adjusted EPS were 254.4p, down 5.6%. They forecast low to mid-single digit growth in organic adjusted operating profit for 2021, excluding the impact of the sale of its premium cigar business.
