British rail and bus operator Stagecoach Group (Other OTC: SAGKF - news) reported a 15.3 percent drop in full-year pretax profit and took a 84 million pound charge against its unprofitable East Coast rail franchise on Wednesday, sending its shares to a seven-year low. Chief Executive Martin Griffiths said revenue growth on the East Coast rail line had not met expectations when it bid for the franchise in 2013-2014, and it was making provisions to reflect losses over the next two years.

British transport company Stagecoach confirmed its full-year earnings expectations, with higher revenue in its UK rail divisions helping to offset falls in its domestic bus and North America units. Stagecoach, which runs bus and train services in different parts of Britain, said comparable revenue for its UK bus division, both London and regional operations, fell 0.9 percent and 1.7 percent respectively for the 44 weeks to March 4. The company blamed economic weakness in some parts of the UK and sustained lower fuel prices for the shortfall in the regional bus operation.
The winner of the race to operate the South Western rail franchise has promised a series of improvements amid a row over the involvement of a foreign firm. First MTR - a combination of First Group and the Hong Kong operator of the looming Crossrail service across London - said passengers would see simpler fares, more seats and faster journeys through a £1.2bn investment. The Government confirmed it would run the franchise for seven years from 20 August - taking over from Stagecoach which has run South West Trains (SWT) since 1996.
Changing the operator on the South West Trains rail franchise, which includes some of the UK's busiest commuter routes, will be "great news for rail passengers". The change of operator represents a major shake-up as the franchise has had the same operator, Stagecoach, since the railways were privatised in 1996. The franchise has had the same operator for longer than any other and Stagecoach ran the very first franchised train in the UK under privatisation - the 05.10am from Twickenham to London Waterloo - in the early hours of 4 February 1996.
