    Pearson's London Strand HQ may be next to go in cost cutting drive

    Pearson (PSON.L), the world's biggest education company, could move out of its London Strand headquarters as part of its latest drive to cut costs after U.S. students stopped buying so many textbooks. A move from its home of 18 years would mark a significant step for Pearson's executives who are based on the top floors of an Art Deco building on the Strand, next to the Savoy Hotel and close to the Thames. "We are committed to a London HQ," said Ben Almond, Pearson's global head of property.

    Pearson's London Strand HQ may be next to go in cost cutting drive

    Pearson (Xetra: 858266 - news) , the world's biggest education company, could move out of its London Strand headquarters as part of its latest drive to cut costs after U.S. students stopped buying so many textbooks. The British company, which used to own the Financial Times newspaper, has been forced to retrench after college students in the United States started renting and downloading digital books, rather than paying for expensive textbooks. A move from its home of 18 years would mark a significant step for Pearson's executives who are based on the top floors of an Art Deco building on the Strand, next to the Savoy Hotel and close to the Thames.

    IAG, Pearson lead FTSE rebound, overcoming HSBC profit hit

    Britain's leading stock index was lifted by strong results from British Airways owner IAG, while HSBC joined French banks in reporting weaker profit which hit its shares. A weak pound, which gives an accounting boost to companies whose earnings are in dollars, also helped Britain's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) to close up 0.86 percent on the day. IAG (ICAG.L) was up 5.8 percent and near a four-month high after a 75 percent jump in quarterly profit.

    Pearson teaches traders a lesson as turnaround at the education publiher gathers momentum

    “Small but beautiful” was how analysts at Citi described Pearson today after the academic publisher reported a positive start to the year. Shares shot 39.2p higher to 870p as Catherine O’Neill at Citi said Pearson’s turnaround now looks firmly on track. Pearson confirmed it should deliver operating profit of between £520 million and £560 million for the year, and its target of hitting £300 million of annualised cost savings by 2020 remains on course.

    Pearson on track after first-quarter revenue edges up

    British education publishing company Pearson (PSON.L) said it was on track to return to underlying profit growth this year after revenue rose 1 percent in the first quarter - the quietest for a firm aligned to the academic year. Chief Executive John Fallon said Pearson had made a good start to 2018, and it still expected to report its first rise in profit for six years in 2018. Pearson has struggled to adapt quickly enough to the shift to digital and changes in the education market in recent years, resulting in a string of profit warnings.

    Pearson Falls on Concerns Over Testing Without Consent

    The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Pearson has been embedding messaging into some versions of its learning software programs to track whether students who had received them performed better than students who hadn’t. Privacy concerns are top of mind for investors following high-profile data breaches, such as the scandal involving Facebook Inc. and Cambridge Analytica, which retained information on millions of the social network’s users without their consent. “This issue is definitely in the spotlight and you don’t want to be a company that’s dragged into it,” said Ian Whittaker, an analyst at Liberum Capital Ltd. who rates the stock a sell.

    Pearson in talks to sell U.S. K12 business, hits 2017 profit target

    Educational publisher Pearson said on Friday it was in talks with potential buyers to sell its K12 school business in the United States, as it reported 2017 adjusted operating profit at the top end of its guidance. The British company is restructuring after issuing a string of profit warnings sparked by the cost of moving to digital from paper textbooks, repeatedly knocking investor confidence and forcing it to cut thousands of jobs. It said on Friday its profit was 576 million pounds, down 9 percent but above its recently upgraded range of 570 million to 575 million pounds, due to a lower tax rate.

    EU official to U.S.: clearing plans won't undermine bilateral pacts

    European Union representatives have sought to reassure the United States that plans to tighten oversight of foreign clearing houses operating in the bloc will not disrupt transatlantic ties on market access that took years to agree. The EU has proposed giving its regulators stronger powers to supervise "systemic" or large foreign clearing houses handling transactions worth trillions of euros for investors in the bloc. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) says the move threatens EU-U.S. clearing deals that took years negotiate.
