Mitie Group Plc surpassed its guidance for full-year profit on Thursday and predicted solid growth this year after weathering a tough period for British outsourcers by cutting costs and focusing on its core businesses. The collapse of rival Carillion and Interserve's slide into administration have hurt sentiment towards UK contractors and outsourcing groups, but Chief Executive Officer Phil Bentley was optimistic that Mitie would emerge well placed from the shakeout. Bentley said the company did a "fair bit better" in the year.
British outsourcer Mitie Group Plc on Thursday posted a 6% rise in adjusted full-year operating profit and said it expects earnings to grow in the mid-single digits for 2019, as its engineering and security businesses outperforms. The company, which has been investing in technology and employee retention and selling non-core assets, said adjusted operating profit rose to 88.2 million pounds, above its forecast range of 84 million pounds to 87 million pounds, in the year ended March 31, from 83.2 million pounds a year earlier.

The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which had raised questions over pricing and choices available to customers after Rentokil's deal, said it had received proposals related to the acquisition of MPCL Ltd from Rentokil on April 23. Mitie had sold the business to Rentokil for 40 million pounds last year, and Rentokil had until April 23 to send its proposals to the CMA. Rentokil did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In an unusual move by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) after a merger has been completed, the agency gave Rentokil a deadline of April 23 to make proposals to address its concerns or face an in-depth investigation. "Having considered a wide range of evidence, it (CMA) has found there could be a substantial reduction in competition, which may lead to higher prices or reduced quality for customers," the said in a statement. "While we are pleased that the UK Competition and Markets Authority has found no substantial lessening of competition in the local and regional customer sectors, we will now review the decision in detail and consider our next steps," a spokesman for Rentokil said in an email.

The FTSE 100, which earns more than two-thirds of its earnings in U.S. dollars, added 0.6 percent on its best day in a week - and the FTSE 250 was up 0.1 percent. Sterling lost more than a percent as May failed to sway hardline opponents of her European Union divorce deal with an offer to quit, while none of eight indicative options to break the Brexit deadlock won majority support in parliament.

The weakness in Mitie's order book comes amid heightened uncertainty over Brexit and at a time when Britain's outsourcing sector has its back against the wall, with the high-profile demise of Carillion increasing scrutiny of the sector. Chief Executive Officer Phil Bentley flagged a backdrop of "undoubted" challenges and said short-term economic worries were impacting clients' capital programmes and willingness to enter into longer term contracts. "(In 2017) we had a couple of big orders around government contracts.

The outsourcing group Mitie is this weekend plotting an audacious takeover bid for the biggest division of rival Interserve just hours after it endured a brief skirmish with administration. Sky News can reveal that Mitie is drawing up plans to offer Interserve's new owners - a consortium of banks and hedge funds - roughly £100m for its support services unit. Around 40,000 of Interserve's 45,000-strong UK workforce sit within its support services unit, while Mitie employs about 56,000 people in Britain.
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.

From Britain's hospitals and schools to its prisons and armed forces, firms supplying essential public services have been asked by the government to outline plans for a no-deal Brexit. "The government has written to some of us asking us 'what are you doing in preparation for a no-deal?' - which is timely, at eight weeks to go," one industry source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity. Private firms including Babcock, Capita, Serco, G4S, Mitie and Compass play a central role in providing Britain's public services, which means they have to procure medicines, toiletries, food, spare parts and labour, much of which come from the EU.
