waldron: Summary and outlook The Group is exiting the pandemic strongly and has achieved the important milestone of revenue exceeding its pre-COVID level on a run rate basis. Organic growth was strong in the first half of the year as the Group benefited from like for like volume recovery, high levels of net new business and pricing. Underlying operating margin was in line with guidance and is expected to improve in the second half. While there are global inflationary pressures, which are expected to increase and continue at a heightened level, we have a resilient business model to help mitigate this challenge. This environment is also leading to an acceleration in first time outsourcing as organisations seek cost savings. We have a clear strategy to capture this growth opportunity based on our scale, expertise and sectorised market approach. Our value creation model has proven very effective and remains unchanged. The Group's market leading position combined with a relevant offer and capability are resulting in record new business wins and our highest ever client retention rate. Given our strong first half performance and positive outlook, we are increasing our full year organic revenue growth guidance from 20 - 25% to around 30%. Whilst we are cautious about the inflationary environment, our margin guidance remains unchanged, with full year underlying operating margin expected to be over 6%, exiting the year at around 7%. Our disciplined capital allocation framework supports growth whilst ensuring a robust balance sheet, rewarding shareholders through dividends and additional shareholder returns. This is demonstrated through the 9.4 pence per share interim dividend and the share buyback programme announced today with up to GBP500m during this calendar year. Looking further ahead, we remain excited about the significant structural growth opportunities globally, leading to the potential for revenue and profit growth above historical rates, returning margin to pre-pandemic levels and rewarding shareholders with further returns.

waldron: Compass Group PLC said Wednesday that it is upgrading its guidance for fiscal 2022 after first-half pretax profit rose, and that it plans a share buyback program.

Underlying operating profit--which strips out exceptional and other one-off items--rose to GBP673 million from GBP287 million, with a margin of 5.5%. Revenue increased to GBP11.5 billion from GBP8.44 billion. Compass said it will start a share buyback program worth up to GBP500 million this year. The company said it has upgraded its FY 2022 guidance for organic revenue growth to around 30% from a range of 20% to 25%, while underlying operating margin guidance remains unchanged and is expected to be above 6%.

waldron: Compass Group PLC on Tuesday reported a increase in pretax profit for fiscal 2021 as it booked lower costs and returned to the dividend list. The U.K. catering contractor made a pretax profit of 464 million pounds ($621.6 million) for the year ended Sept. 30 compared with GBP210 million for fiscal 2020. Revenue fell to GBP17.91 billion from GBP19.94 billion a year earlier as the pandemic continued to hit the sales. The board reinstated the dividend policy of a final dividend of 14 pence a share and said it will pay 50% of underlying earnings through an interim and final dividend in fiscal 2022. Underlying operating margin was 4.5% compared with 2.9% the previous period as the group reduced the cost base and adapted the operation. Compass said it expects for the next full year an underlying operating margin to be more than 6%, with an exit rate of 7%, while the revenue growth should increase around 20% and 25%. The company sees a stronger performance toward the second half of the year due to the current inflationary pressures. "Looking ahead we are now focused on growth, driven by encouraging market trends and our ability to provide more bespoke, digital and sustainable solutions that meet the evolving needs of clients in a post-pandemic world. The tailwinds from first time outsourcing continue and, combined with our differentiated operating model and investment opportunities, we are in a strong position for growth," Chief Executive Dominic Blakemore said.

sarkasm: Compass Group PLC said Tuesday that it expects fourth-quarter underlying revenue on a constant currency basis to improve to 86% of 2019 revenue, and for it to be slightly ahead of the previous guidance range of 80% to 85%. The U.K. catering contractor said although it expects most of its sectors to continue performing well, it remained cautious about its Business & Industry segment given the continuing uncertainty surrounding the pace of office reopenings in its major markets. For the year ending Sept. 30, it expects underlying revenue on a constant currency basis to be around 76% of what it was in fiscal 2019, it said. The company reported underlying revenue of 25.15 billion pounds ($34.35 billion) for fiscal 2019. The FTSE 100 company said it expects fourth-quarter underlying operating margin to be around the midpoint of the guidance range of 5.5% to 6.0% as it continues to manage mobilization costs and inflation, while adapting operations to suit clients' changing requirements. For fiscal 2021 as a whole, Compass expects an underlying operating margin of around 4.4%. "We continue to be encouraged by the ongoing growth opportunities including strong momentum in new business wins, from the acceleration in first-time outsourcing, and increased potential for market share gains," the company said.

weemonkey: Fully expect this to mirror recent outperformance of WH Smith. They do kind of the same thing. Both SMWH and CPG sell product in locations where the customer has no other choice allowing them to slightly overcharge. CPG is deeply profitable. And it is set to be more so as it will emerge from the pandemic into a world with less competition.
