  • Like-for-like sales excluding fuel fell 0.2% in the fiscal second quarter, an improvement from a 1.6% drop three months earlier, thanks to a 3.3% rise in clothing and a 0.6% rise in grocery. Underlying earnings per share fell 16% to 7.9 pence, missing a forecast for 8.1p

  • The company left its group 2019 EBITDA guidance excluding the U.S. unchanged at 420-440 million pounds. However, it raised its U.S. guidance, saying it would lose only 40-45 million at an EBITDA level, rather than the previous expectation of 55 million.
