"We've got to keep a very close eye on the 5-Star Movement ... and if they're going to try to put their foot down in any way," said Jasper Reimers, market analyst at Vertex Capital Group.

    Data Laws Deliver New Blow to Ailing Royal Mail Letters Business

    Royal Mail Plc, Britain’s 500-year-old postal service, said it expects rules designed to rein in the abuse of personal data to weigh on letter volumes as companies are forced to scrap targeted marketing campaigns. The introduction of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation from May 25 means postal demand may suffer an accelerated decline, Royal Mail said Thursday. Royal Mail fell 6.6 percent, the biggest intraday drop since November 2016, after issuing the warning on Thursday with its full-year results.

    Royal Mail says full-year revenue grows but cautious on letter volumes

    Growth in parcel volumes and its European parcel business GLS, however, helped drive up 2 percent rise in annual revenue to 10.17 billion pounds, the postal and parcel delivery company said. Under CEO Moya Greene, who will retire in June, the former monopoly focused on its growing European parcels business to offset declining post and parcel volumes in its home market. Revenue at GLS, which covers 41 European markets, rose to 2.56 billion pounds from 2.12 billion pounds a year ago.

    Back is CEO of General Logistics Systems (GLS), an Amsterdam-headquartered business that has offset declining post and parcel volumes in Royal Mail's home market. Under Greene, one of only seven female CEOs in the FTSE 100 list of top companies, Royal Mail was privatised in 2013 and has since reduced layers of management, upgraded technology and cut its property bill to save costs. The company has faced labour disputes and in February reached an agreement with the Communications Workers Union (CWU) to end a nearly 10-month dispute over plans to replace the company's defined benefit pension scheme.

    It is tempting to blame the FTSE-100's lurch into correction territory simply on concerns over trade wars between the US and China. After all, all of the Footsie's European peers have also fallen sharply since it became clear President Trump was going to slap tariffs on a number of Chinese imports, a measure to which Beijing has retaliated overnight. The UK's main index has on Friday hit a level last seen on 12 December 2016.
