    Elior cuts FY guidance on tough competition, shares slump

    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. The French caterer issued a previous profit warning six months ago, while rival Sodexo cut its full-year sales and profit margin outlook in March and Compass Group (Other OTC: CMPGF - news) , the world's biggest catering firm, missed first-half earnings expectations in May. Profit margins for contract catering in France were impacted by a tough competitive environment combined with a period of managerial instability," Chief Executive Officer Philippe Guillemot said in a statement on Wednesday.
