Inchcape sees buoyant second-half as global auto demand picks up

(Reuters) - Auto distributor Inchcape <INCH.L> said on Thursday it expects its second half to be ahead of market view after a better-than-expected third quarter, helped by pent-up demand for new and used cars after the first wave of corornavirus-led lockdowns.

The company, which distributes and sells premium and luxury car brands in more than 30 countries, said revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30 fell 19% to 1.9 billion pounds .
