    Sodexo shares rise as Q3 sales beat expectations, keeps goals

    France's Sodexo cheered investors on Thursday by beating third-quarter sales expectations and by offering plans to bolster earnings, sending shares in the world's second-biggest caterer 7 percent higher. The food services and facilities management company also kept its recently reduced targets for sales growth and margins for the 2017/18 full year. Sales growth in the third quarter slowed from the first half but this was less severe than analysts had feared as weakness in healthcare and in education services in North America was partly offset by a solid performance in Asia and Latin America.

    Elior (Paris: FR0013204435 - news) , Europe's third-largest catering group, cut full-year guidance after posting lower-than-expected preliminary first-half results due partly to tough competition in contract catering in France, sending its shares plunging by 14 percent.
