Compass Group (CPG) Earnings-Reaction to Keep an Eye
Just a couple of weeks before a trading update, but then when can you say that you're leaving without folk like me reading too much into it.
Rubbish time to say that the FD's leaving. No doubt the big shareholders will get an insight into the reason.
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:
A.B. published on 16/01/2018 at 12:55 UBS prefers Sodexo and Compass to Elior ( - UBS has reduced its purchase recommendation to neutral on Elior, keeping the price target of 18 euros. The consulting firm believes that the small rebound seen since the lows leaves a margin of maneuver insufficient to justify the maintenance of a positive recommendation. He believes that Compass and Sodexo are currently better opportunities for investment.
How extremely sad, and only a few months before Richard's planned retirement. My thoughts & condolences to both families.
Very sad and tragic event. Thoughts are with both families.

Not a holder but very sad to hear the dreadful news from Australia. RIP Richard and thoughts with his family at this sad time
Very shocked at that news. A fantastic CEO who transformed CPG and created huge value.
Dreadful, I cannot imagine what the family are suffering right now. Just awful.
So sad, thoughts with the family
Richard Cousins and sons tragically killed in Sydney seaplane accident!
Sad news-thoughts are with family
KNOW THY COMPETITION BARCELONA (Agefi-Dow Jones) - Sodexo's margin (SW.FR) is expected to improve from 2019, says UBS, given the positive impact of changes to its health and education activities in the United States and the fact that his reorganization plan is now complete. The French market is starting to recover and Brazil is stabilizing, which should also have a beneficial effect, as the improvement in the sector of energy and raw materials and economies of scale, says the bank. Denis Machuel, who will become managing director of Sodexo in January 2018, is not expected to change the group's strategy, according to UBS, adding that the investors' day planned for next summer should give some indication of its value creation projects. UBS raises the price target from 122 to 123.5 euros. The title loses 1.5% to 106.35 euros.

The only thing I could see were some weasel words about future risks, but nothing to frighten the horses.
Business the telegraph Compass shares dip despite profit boost 0 Compass, caterer to the Wimbledon tennis tournament, said profits climbed 23pc last year Jack Torrance Rhiannon Bury 21 November 2017 • 2:25pm Contract catering giant Compass Group was among the sharpest fallers in the FTSE 100 on Tuesday morning, despite posting a double-digit rise in profits. Pre-tax profits climbed 23pc to £1.6bn and revenues ticked up 15.1pc to £22.6bn in the year to September, after strong growth in its North American market. But its shares opened down 5pc. Chief executive Richard Cousins said Compass had “another strong year” in which it returned £1.6bn to shareholders. He said: "Our expectations for 2018 are positive, with growth and margin improvement weighted to the second half. The pipeline of new contracts is encouraging and our focus on organic growth, efficiencies and cash gives us confidence in achieving another year of progress." Compass’s organic revenues climbed 7.1pc in North America, but just 1.6pc in Europe. But they fell 2.5pc in the rest of the world, dragged down by declines in the company’s offshore and remote business, which has been hit by cutbacks in the oil industry. The company supplies catering services to workplaces and events as diverse as oil rigs, Wimbledon tennis championships and school canteens. Mr Cousins, who has been chief executive since 2006, will leave in March. He will be replaced by Dominic Blakemore, Compass’s chief operating officer for Europe. Mr Cousins said that he did not expect Mr Blakemore to radically change the company's strategy next year. "It's hard work to keep the oil tanker chugging in the right direction and that's our main focus," he said. The firm has reduced the number of countries it operates in from 98 to 50 over the past two decades in order to focus more on high value contracts. Mr Cousins said the key challenges for the business were tackling wage inflation, and making sure its margins were improving. Compass shares were down 3.2pc at £15.40 in morning trading.

DF, it was more like 5% drop at one stage. No more than the usual sell on news I would think. Results were excellent, divi increased & all very positive, so its a buy opt in my book. Expect to be back to 1600 before long. Santa rally & ex divi for 22.3p in January could see 1700 again.
Decent results and the price falls by 3%. What spooked them?
