British outsourcer Mitie reported a 14% rise in first-quarter revenue on Tuesday, boosted by new contracts and a recent acquisition in its security business, but said higher-than-planned costs weighed on profits. Mitie is in the midst of a cost-saving drive to revive its fortunes under Chief Executive Officer Phil Bentley, who took over at the end of 2016. The collapse of rival Carillion and Interserve's slide into administration have hurt sentiment towards UK contractors and outsourcing groups, but Bentley has been optimistic that Mitie would emerge well placed from the shakeout.
Peter Stephens believes these two FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE:UKX) shares have excellent dividend growth track records that suggest they may outperform buy-to-let.
Shares in Sodexo slumped on Monday after the French food services group warned the loss of several contracts in healhcare and sports and leisure in North America would weigh on fourth-quarter sales and also impact the start of next year. Chief Executive Denis Machuel nevertheless struck a confident tone over prospects for next year as the world's largest catering services group after Britain's Compass beat market expectations for third quarter sales growth. Sodexo rattled investors' nerves last year after warnings related to weakness in North America, where cost savings have not been as high as expected and several large contracts have taken time to pay off.
Compass, which counts Alphabet Inc's Google, Coca-Cola Co, Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Nike Inc among its customers, said broad based organic revenue grew 7.9% in its North America business for the six months ended March 31. "Following the very strong first half performance we now increase our organic revenue growth guidance for the full year and expect to deliver organic revenue growth and margin progression similar to 2018," the company said. Compass previously said it expects full-year organic revenue growth to be slightly above the mid-point of its 4% to 6% forecast range.

French catering company Elior said it had got a firm offer of 1.542 billion euros (£1.34 billion) from private equity firm PAI Partners for its 'Areas' concession catering business, helping to give a lift to Elior's shares. Elior said it expected to close the sale during this summer, and added it would use the proceeds of the deal to cut its debt. Elior, which competes with Sodexo and Compass, has embarked on an overhaul of its business after issuing several profit warnings in recent years, and the sale of the Areas arm formed part of plans to sell non-core assets.

The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 was up 0.1 percent at its highest closing level since early October, outshining its European and U.S. counterparts, while the midcaps dipped 0.1 percent. Sector heavyweights Shell and BP jumped more than 1 percent to their highest this year, as oil prices were driven by expectations of tighter global supply because of fighting in Libya, OPEC-led cuts and U.S. sanctions against Iran and Venezuela. The gains helped cushion steep falls in blue-chip financial stocks, which were the biggest drags on the FTSE 100.

Britain's government will take measures to identify and reduce risks taken by private firms that provide public services, it will say on Wednesday, in a bid to encourage companies that have become increasingly wary of taking on new government business. Britain, which hires private firms to run parts of its health service, schools, prisons and public transport, has been rethinking how it awards contracts after the collapse of contractor Carillion just over a year ago. "A more considered approach to risk allocation will make us a smarter, more attractive client to do business with," cabinet office minister Oliver Dowden will tell business leaders at the Confederation of British Industry on Wednesday.

French supermarket retailer Casino, which has been divesting assets to trim debts, said on Thursday that it had agreed to sell its contract catering business 'R2C' to Britain's Compass. Last month, when Casino achieved a target set out last year of 1.5 billion euros in asset sales, the company had said it would examine further steps to cut debt. Casino had its credit rating cut to 'junk' by Standard & Poor's in March 2016.
