Compass, which counts Alphabet Inc's Google, Coca-Cola Co, Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Nike Inc among its customers, said broad based organic revenue grew 7.9% in its North America business for the six months ended March 31. "Following the very strong first half performance we now increase our organic revenue growth guidance for the full year and expect to deliver organic revenue growth and margin progression similar to 2018," the company said. Compass previously said it expects full-year organic revenue growth to be slightly above the mid-point of its 4% to 6% forecast range.

French catering company Elior said it had got a firm offer of 1.542 billion euros (£1.34 billion) from private equity firm PAI Partners for its 'Areas' concession catering business, helping to give a lift to Elior's shares. Elior said it expected to close the sale during this summer, and added it would use the proceeds of the deal to cut its debt. Elior, which competes with Sodexo and Compass, has embarked on an overhaul of its business after issuing several profit warnings in recent years, and the sale of the Areas arm formed part of plans to sell non-core assets.

The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 was up 0.1 percent at its highest closing level since early October, outshining its European and U.S. counterparts, while the midcaps dipped 0.1 percent. Sector heavyweights Shell and BP jumped more than 1 percent to their highest this year, as oil prices were driven by expectations of tighter global supply because of fighting in Libya, OPEC-led cuts and U.S. sanctions against Iran and Venezuela. The gains helped cushion steep falls in blue-chip financial stocks, which were the biggest drags on the FTSE 100.

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.

French supermarket retailer Casino, which has been divesting assets to trim debts, said on Thursday that it had agreed to sell its contract catering business 'R2C' to Britain's Compass. Last month, when Casino achieved a target set out last year of 1.5 billion euros in asset sales, the company had said it would examine further steps to cut debt. Casino had its credit rating cut to 'junk' by Standard & Poor's in March 2016.
Sodexo's sport and leisure business, which provides catering at the U.S. Super Bowl, Royal Ascot and the Eiffel Tower, will focus on organic growth as it integrates its 2017 U.S. acquisition Centerplate. Nathalie Bellon Szabo, the chief executive of Sodexo's Sports & Leisure Worldwide business said it plans to grow in its three key markets of the United States, France and Britain by securing more contracts and also look to expand in China.
The result topped a Jefferies forecast of 5 percent growth while analysts at Morningstar said, given waning European economic conditions, Compass' 6.4 percent organic growth there was "a shock". The provider of 5.5 billion meals a year for office workers, soldiers and school children in more than 50 countries said it expects organic growth for the year to be slightly above the middle of its 4-6 percent guidance. "We remain a touch cautious and conservative in the outlook," Blakemore said, noting factors including Brexit, the aftermath of the U.S. government shutdown and street protests in France.
