They won't be marvellous. How can they be. But this company is dominant in it's space and it survives .. Sitting in a motorway service caff eating overpriced food is a fact of life that will return.

Yes, profits were off 60% but this company still made £670 million operating profit. Come on now. . How many businesses can claim profits like those this year? Hugely well-capitalized. Set to take full advantage of the recovery in a post-vaccine world. very happy to be invested here

Compass Group PLC on Tuesday reported a fall in pretax profit for fiscal 2020 on lower revenue, as the coronavirus pandemic has severely hurt the business in the second quarter. The U.K. catering contractor made a pretax profit of 210 million pounds ($279.8 million) for the year ended Sept. 30, compared with a restated GBP1.49 billion in fiscal 2019. Revenue fell to GBP19.94 billion from GBP24.88 billion a year earlier. Coronavirus restrictions reduced volumes in business and industry, education, and sports and leisure in all regions, the company said. As anticipated in April, the board declared no final dividend for the year in an effort to preserve resources amid the coronavirus pandemic. "The board will keep future dividends under review and will restart payments when it is considered appropriate to do so," the company said Tuesday. Underlying operating margin was 2.9%, in line with the company's guidance for around 3%. Compass said it expects underlying operating margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 to be around 2.5%. The company said it expects the figure to return to profitability in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021.

Got to be a huge beneficiary of the Vaccine news. Easy bounce back for this industry. Restock, re-employ and start selling overpriced food to hungry travellers Once in lifetime opp to buy this FTSE stalwart on the cheap.

I think the whole business will suffer more due to the structural changes because of COVID. More troubles ahead. But out of it CPG will be a huge winner - when the dust settles. Still waiting before buying (also due to the general market conditions). A share that is a high priority on my watch list.

Compass Group PLC said Wednesday that organic revenue fell around 36% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, and that it expects to take a 100 million-pound ($128.6 million) hit from contract assets due to the coronavirus pandemic. The U.K. catering contractor said organic revenue for the year to Sept. 30 declined by around 19%, although its fourth-quarter performance improved as clients in business-and-industry and education began to return to offices and schools in its main markets. The FTSE-100 company said it expects a negative underlying operating-profit margin of around 3% for the fourth quarter, including impairments on contract assets. Excluding those impairments, the company's fourth-quarter operating margin is expected to be breakeven, it said. For fiscal 2020 as a whole, Compass expects an underlying operating margin of around 3%. Compass said the pace at which its revenue and margin will recover remains unclear, especially given the possible increase in lockdown measures in the northern hemisphere through the winter months.

started to reserch - lots to like - strong balance sheet - high ROE combined with low PE makes it cheap - strong delevered BS - clear world leader with good contracts - despite CV19 this grew into an advantage because CPG has large clients and if they reduce workforce the critical BE mass remains - which smaller competitors loose - strong resiliant governmental, defense, offshore market - an interesting shareholders list - low capital intensity - huge buying advantage - position on the higher margin market - innovations a la vending

Outlook At the time of our Half Year results announcement on 19 May 2020 we withdrew our previous growth and margin outlook for 2020. Trading in the third quarter was in line with the Slow Recovery scenario described in our Company Presentation of 19 May 2020. The pace at which our volumes will recover is still unclear, especially given a possible increase in local lockdowns. We are encouraged by the relative improvement in performance in June, as well as the early signs of an acceleration in first time outsourcing opportunities. In the meantime, we continue to work with our clients to help them reopen safely. We are proactively managing the business, reducing our costs, rebuilding our margins and investing to strengthen our competitive advantages. Looking further ahead, we remain excited about the significant structural market opportunity globally, and the return to organic revenue growth, margin improvement and returns to shareholders over time. 2020 Reporting Calendar In order to provide analysts and investors with more frequent updates on our financial performance our reporting calendar in 2020 will be as follows: 30 September 2020 FY 2020 Pre-close trading update 24 November 2020 FY 2020 Results Compass will hold a conference call for investors and analysts today 8:30a.m. (UK time).
