Expect this to re-test highs at 360 and probably to exceed them. Very good results in downturn, and structured in many ways upon resilient public sector organisations. Should prove a sound business model.

PADHERF and others Having done a fair bit of reading over the weekend I came to the conclusion that with a trading update due in a few days time, I might just take a chance that it will be positive and, therefore, added CPG to my monitor this morning. On the day's performance, so far, I am beginning to think I may well have gotten things slightly wrong. On the other hand I may just be lucky in getting them a lot cheaper than I expected. I would be grateful for any information you could pass on, either in the form of your own recent assessments or, particularly if you know of any reason for today's sudden fall and, what you envisage to be the more likely outcome of the update. TIA Regards PF

Compass Group wins contract at Ireland's Lansdowne Road stadium (27 January 2009 15:34) Compass Group has won a multi-million pound 21-year deal to cater at Ireland's New Stadium, Lansdowne Road. Under the terms of the contract, Compass will supply all catering at the rebuilt 50,000-seater stadium when it reopens to the public in April 2010 which includes 35 hospitality boxes, three restaurants and 57 food and drink outlets. On non-match days, the on-site team will handle conference and banqueting business at the site, and the food offer has been developed by Mark Wright, executive chef for the Compass stadia business. Philip Browne, chairman of Lansdowne Road Stadium Development Company, said: "Compass Group is an ideal choice of catering partner. It is the largest and most successful catering company in this area, so is best equipped to deliver for all our various visitors to the new stadium." Article continues below "Our decision to appoint them was influenced by the local knowledge and experience of the Dublin-based Compass team."

RNS Number : 8252M Compass Group PLC 05 February 2009 5 February 2009 Compass Group PLC AGM Statement and Interim Management Statement Compass Group PLC is today issuing its first Interim Management Statement for 2009 ahead of its Annual General Meeting to be held at 11:00a.m. today at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE. At this meeting shareholders will be provided with the following Interim Management Statement on the Group's performance for the first three months of the current year. Group Compass has had a very good first quarter. We are encouraged that net new business is running at a similar level to last year and whilst, as expected, there has been some weakness in like for like volumes in parts of the Business & Industry and Sports & Leisure sectors, the Education, Healthcare and Remote Sites sectors continue to make good progress. The flexibility of our cost base and a continued focus on driving cost efficiencies through continued application of the MAP operating framework has enabled us to deliver a further improvement in operating margin compared to the same period last year. As a result, constant currency operating profit is running well ahead of the same period last year and cash flow conversion remains strong. North America Our sector spread and healthy client mix in the North America business helped to deliver good organic revenue growth and increased margin compared to the same period last year. The Education and Healthcare sectors are continuing to perform very well. While we have seen a reduction in like for like volume in parts of the Business & Industry sector, significant new contract wins and strong retention rates are helping to drive continued good organic revenue growth. Building on the strength of our foodservice and support services businesses, we have recently announced the acquisition of KIMCO Corporation for cash consideration of US$75m with a further maximum US$15m performance related payment. KIMCO provides predominantly soft support services to the Business & Industry sector across North America and strengthens our ability to deliver soft support services to additional segments of the market. Continental Europe Overall we have seen steady organic revenue growth, albeit at a lower level than last year. In the Business & Industry sector, there has been evidence of lower like for like volume, particularly in the areas of financial services and manufacturing, but we have continued to see good levels of net new business. The Education and Healthcare sectors have proved to be resilient. We continue to make very good efficiency gains and operating margins are ahead of the same period last year. We are pleased to announce today the acquisition of Plural Group, from Plural Holdings and Mr Jürgen Thomas, subject to certain closing conditions, for a consideration of €27.5m and a further maximum €4.2m based on performance over the next three years. Operating across Germany, Plural Group provides soft support services to the Business and Industry and Healthcare sectors. This acquisition will allow us to leverage our excellent business in Germany and capitalise on the growing demand for multi services. UK Overall, revenues and operating profit are, as expected, at similar levels to the first three months of last year. Despite the challenges of the UK economy, the business is benefiting from the significant restructuring that has taken place in recent years. Rest of the World We have seen strong organic revenue growth in the first three months of the year being driven by our businesses in Australia, Brazil, the UAE and the Remote Site businesses. Margins are again ahead of the same period last year. Currency In the first three months of the year the average US$ and Euro exchange rates were 1.59 and 1.20 respectively, compared to 2.04 and 1.41 in the first three months of last year. These movements generate an overall positive impact of approximately £30m on translation of the Group's first three months operating profit, compared with the same period last year. Note to Editors: (a) Compass Group is the world's largest foodservice company with annual revenues of over £11 billion operating in 55 countries. For more information visit www.compass-group.com

I was in at 274 and out at 287 when the share price hit the 50 day ma. Very anxious three hours because I'm still not too positive about the charts.We still look to be in a trough and will probably trade sideways for a while unless the markets have a big surge up. Still not sure whether the bottom at around 240p will hold...although it does seem strong. Whatever,excellent results and the MAP seems to be working.Nice 8p divi ex date on 28 Jan 2009. Did you "nibble" Elmfield? lol

Charts not looking good for the share price to hold.Nov sell off. Gained 40p this time last year, lost 70p in Oct this year. This was going to be a strong hold for 2008. BUT,still FTSE 100. Price held well today.This is the "double bounce" test.Maybe,there's 25p innit for us or,if we're really lucky the share price will hit 285.Who knows and all the best. But,the charts don't give me much confidence and the mood 'out there' is horrible.

Here I am again,same time as last year!!!Where are you,Cobweb? Was this large drop the result of hedge funds exiting and panic or is there another reason...shorting? Is this the bottom or merely a bounce?I am waiting before stepping back in. LOL to all holders.

I-M Thanks for your comment. Someone else (Deanforester) has helpfully pointed to the split estimate published by RNS. This shows a lower Granada price and higher Compass price and I think these are the ones I have to use. There may have been a subsequent substantial change during the first day after the split.

For a share which has performed amazingly well against the present market background, there is a surprising lack of interest in this thread... ...Which is a pity as I have a question requiring help from a knowledgeable individual and this is where I hoped to find one! Can anyone point me to a reference giving the initial split values to be ascribed to the two shares, GAA and CPG resulting from the demerger of Granada-Compass? I need this to apportion cost and thought it should be easy but have failed to find an answer. Most grateful for any help. I will ask also on the heavily subscribed ITV thread but suspect that could be a case of quantity dominating over quality.
