Associated British Foods plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the Full Year Ending September 13, 2014

Associated British Foods plc provided earnings guidance for the full year ending September 13, 2014. The company expects adjusted earnings per share for the full year are expected to be ahead of last year. Strong operating profit performances from Primark and Grocery, and improvement in Ingredients are expected to offset the adverse effect of lower sugar prices and the impact of some £50 million on the translation of overseas results arising from the strengthening of sterling. The net interest expense will be well below last year's charge following the retirement of expensive long-term debt and a much lower level of borrowings throughout the year. The underlying tax rate will be lower than last year reflecting a further reduction in the UK corporation tax rate and a change in the profit mix. Year-end net debt is expected to be further reduced from last year's £0.8 billion to some £0.5 billion this year.

Associated British Foods Says, No IPO Or Online Shopping For Primark

Associated British Foods plc (LSE:ABF) said it has no plans to float Primark Limited or to offer online shopping anytime soon. “We think actually Primark’s working really well,” said John Bason, Financial Director of ABF. “So, the strategy is one of ‘As fast as we can open the stores in our existing countries.’ And then, of course, we continue to work on our opening in the Northeast of the U.S.” “Primark is not broken,” Bason said, “So why try and fix it?”
