Informa earns after growing revenue, profit orientation

Informa gains after boosting fiscal year revenue, profit forecast

1005 GMT – Shares in Informa rise 6% after the FTSE 100-listed business publishing and exhibition group raised its full-year revenue and profit targets. The trade update makes forecasts for 2022 less risky and sets the stage for a possible further improvement in growth next year, says Citigroup. While equities may not look too cheap, they should at least be able to hold their valuation, if not rise further, as earnings return to pre-pandemic levels and beyond, Citi says. “We believe this will calm nerves,” Citi analysts said in a note. “We are evaluating the band as a buy.” ([email protected])
