In its announcement, it noted that the current average of analysts' forecasts for the company's performance were revenue of £927m, EBITA (earnings before interest, tax and amortisation) of £247m and pre-tax profit of £220m.

The company said its preliminary results, with fuller details, would be announced on 29 November. ®
