Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) on Wednesday raised its revenue growth guidance for fiscal 2019 after posting a 7.4% rise in pretax profit for the first half driven by a strong performance in North America. The company said it now expects to deliver organic revenue growth and margin progression similar to that of fiscal 2018, having previously guided for organic revenue growth slightly above the middle of its targeted 4% to 6% range, with modest margin progression. In fiscal 2018, the company's organic revenue grew 5.5% and operating margin was unchanged at 7.4%. Pretax profit for the half-year ended March 31 was 852 million pounds ($1.10 billion) compared with GBP792 million in the year-earlier period, the U.K. catering contractor said. Net profit rose to GBP646 million from GBP606 million, Compass said. Operating profit was up 6.9% at GBP913 million in the first half, the company said. First-half revenue increased to GBP12.33 billion from GBP11.33 billion a year before, Compass said. Revenue grew 6.6% on an organic basis. The board declared an interim dividend of 13.1 pence a share, up from 12.3 pence in the year-earlier period.

Summary and outlook Compass had a strong first half. Organic revenue growth was 6.6%, driven by excellent growth in North America, a strong performance in Europe, particularly in UK Defence, and good growth in Rest of World. We maintained our strong margin whilst absorbing the increased mobilisation costs in Europe from the higher growth as well as strategic investments being made by the business. Our focus on efficiencies and pricing have continued to offset inflation and helped mitigate ongoing volume weakness in the UK and Continental Europe. We have continued to invest in the business to support the exciting long term growth opportunities. During the first half we spent GBP370 million on bolt-on acquisitions, principally in North America. We have made further progress with our disposal programme and have now exited c. 2% of revenues of non-core businesses. This active portfolio management had a positive impact on the margin in the first half. We are making good progress with our strategy of focusing on Performance, People and Purpose. In relation to our Performance priority we have codified our best practices around the Group and are now using our Management and Performance (MAP) framework to implement them across our larger markets. Increasingly, these initiatives are supported through technology and digital solutions which help drive efficiencies, optimise performance or improve the consumer experience. We have also begun the roll out of key People and Purpose initiatives. Following the very strong first half performance we now increase our organic revenue growth guidance for the full year and expect to deliver organic revenue growth and margin progression similar to 2018. We remain mindful of the macro uncertainty in parts of Europe and its impact on the business. In the longer term, we continue to be excited about the significant structural growth opportunities globally, the potential for further revenue, profit and margin growth, combined with further returns to shareholders.

'Compass edging up expectations, says Hargreaves' The world’s largest catering company Compass (CPG) is ‘grinding out’ market gains and squeezing out margins, according to Hargreaves Lansdown. Steve Clayton, manager of the HL Select UK Growth Shares fund, said the group is doing ‘what it does best’ and ‘grinding out market share gains and squeezing a bit of extra margin from an efficiency drive, at a time when many others will be struggling to hold margins flat’. He said the group had a good start to the year and was ‘edging up’ full-year expectations. ‘The group does face cost pressures currently, but its constant search for efficiencies across the business is minimising the impact,’ said Clayton.

Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) said Wednesday that pretax profit fell in the first half of financial 2018 due to foreign exchange effects, and it reaffirmed its full-year guidance. Pretax profit for the six months to March 31 dropped to 792 million pounds ($1.07 billion) from GBP831 million, the catering-and-facilities company said. Operating profit fell 2.7% to GBP853 million, it said. Compass said the profit fall was driven by a 5.3% hit due to foreign exchange effects, partially offset by 4.5% underlying operating profit growth. Revenue declined 0.8% to GBP11.38 billion, which Compass said was due to a 6.3% hit from foreign exchange. On an underlying basis revenue rose 4.8%, it said. Excluding the effects of weather and Easter timing, organic revenue rose 5.3%, said Compass. Compass said it delivered strong performance in North America, where organic revenue grew 7.3%. Organic revenue in Europe rose 0.5% with good growth in the U.K. Compass said its rest of world segment grew 3.4%, reversing a 3.8% decline in the first half of the prior financial year. The company's operating margin came to 7.5%, down by 10 basis points. Compass said a drive for efficiencies and pricing strategy largely offset cost inflation, and there are further benefits of its measures to address cost inflation in the U.K. to come in the second half. Compass declared an interim dividend a share of 12.3 pence, up by 9.8% from the prior year. The company reaffirmed its first-quarter guidance that it expects to be above the midpoint of its organic-growth target range of 4%-6% in the full year, and said it is reviewing its portfolio to simplify the business.

Compass Group PLC (CPG.LN) said Thursday that its outlook for fiscal 2018 is positive but if currency spot rates stay where they are for the rest of the year, they will have a negative impact on revenue and operating profit. The U.K.-based company, which provides cleaning, property management and contract food services, said currency movements hurt first-quarter revenue, which was 288 million pounds ($400.7 million), and could negatively impact full-year revenue by GBP1.2 billion. Foreign-exchange rates had a GBP24 million negative impact on profit in the quarter ended Dec. 31 and could impact full-year operating profit by GBP97 million, the company said. Organic revenue in the first quarter grew 5.9%, the company said, citing new business wins, strong retention rates and good like-for-like revenue. North America led organic revenue growth, with an 8.2% increase, while Europe grew 2.1%. In the rest of the world organic growth rose 4%, the company said. All regions are performing better than anticipated, and Compass Group now expects to be above the midpoint of its organic-growth target range of 4%-6% in the full year, it said.

New catering facility to create 60 jobs at Dublin Airport Written by Robert McHugh, on 19th Jan 2018. Posted in General article headline It was announced today that dnata, a part of the Emirates Group, has launched plans for its newest airline catering facility at Dublin Airport. dnata is one of the world’s largest air services providers and prepares more than 320,000 meals every day for more than 190 airlines. It has been awarded Best Caterer by some of the world’s leading airlines. dnata’s newest facility will provide high-quality catering to airlines, focusing on premium, long-haul carriers for which the company can supply up to 4,000 meals at current capacity, each day. At full capacity, dnata expects to create 60 new jobs including chefs, operations managers, logistics managers, drivers, stores and health and safety staff. The most recent full financial year, 2016-2017, was dnata’s most profitable in its 58 year history. Profits crossed the US$330 million mark for the first time, with revenue up 15% to $3.3 billion. Speaking this week, Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison said, "dnata’s arrival at Dublin Airport is a hugely positive addition, not only to the Dublin community but also to the Irish economy. Dublin Airport is a major economic hub supporting or facilitating almost 120,000 jobs. Airport service providers of dnata’s calibre really help to support our wider airport operation and in turn, our airline customers. We welcome a company that will inject some healthy competition into the market and we are looking forward to working with the team at dnata." President at dnata, Gary Chapman said, "Passenger traffic through Dublin Airport is up year-on-year since 2011 and it is just a matter of time before it reaches the 30 million mark. In Dublin, we have identified a really strong opportunity to provide the growing number of long-haul carriers, and their customers, with great-tasting, high quality in-flight meals. We see this as a real vote of confidence in the Irish market, which we will support further by sourcing from local food producers and suppliers." Source: www.businessworld.ie
