RPC Group Plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Half of 2014

RPC Group Plc provided earnings guidance for the first half of 2014. For the period, revenues are expected to be significantly ahead of the corresponding period last year reflecting the contribution from recent acquisitions and good growth in the USA, coffee capsules and UK DIY markets. The group's operating profit (before exceptional items) is anticipated to be in line with management expectations despite ongoing foreign exchange translation headwinds and an adverse time lag in passing through polymer prices. The group continues to have a strong financial position with cash flow performance in the first half year expected to be satisfactory.
