’s acquisition of Belgian brick manufacturer Floren & Cie is small in size, but will be important from a U.K. import perspective, Goodbody says. “Given the importance of imports in U.K. brick demand (c.17%), we believe it is an incremental positive that a U.K. producer now owns such an asset and will support the already favorable supply-demand dynamics in the market,” analysts at the brokerage say. 0913 GMT - McColl’s 2018 results were in line with its prior profit warning and its dividend soothes some concerns over the convenience store owner’s liquidity, Numis says.

The Greenwich, Connecticut-based investment firm sent an open letter to Just Eat’s board of directors saying it made a mistake in appointing Peter Plumb as CEO in 2017. “You basically have a situation where you can get a world-class CEO and delivery capabilities, while also potentially securing a premium valuation for shareholders,” Alex Captain, founder of Cat Rock, said in a phone interview. Plumb stepped down last month, and Cat Rock said Just Eat has ignored two suggestions of potential replacements who have experience in online food delivery.
Cat Rock Capital, which has stakes in both Just Eat and Dutch-listed Takeaway.com, said Just Eat was likely to attract significant interest from potential partners if it chose to seek a deal as a route to strong management and growth. Cat Rock's statement comes only three weeks after Just Eat CEO Peter Plumb left the company in the wake of criticism from Cat Rock and some other shareholders about his plan to grow earnings. Peter Duffy, who joined Just East as chief customer officer last June, has been appointed as interim CEO but Cat Rock said he too lacked relevant experience in the food delivery industry.

MILAN/LONDON (Reuters) - European shares ended off highs on Thursday as a bounce in tech stocks after results from chipmaker STMicro was offset by late slide among banks following downbeat comments from ECB President Mario Draghi over the health of the region's economy. The euro zone STOXX index ended up 0.5 percent, having risen as much as 0.8 percent earlier in the day, while Germany's DAX was also up 0.5 percent and Italy's FTSE MIB climbed 0.9 percent.

Just Eat (JE.L) Chief Executive Peter Plumb is stepping down with immediate effect, only 16 months after he joined the British takeaway ordering website and launched an investment drive that slowed earnings growth.

Cat Rock said in December that Just Eat, which delivers meals from local takeaways as well as big brands such as Burger King, KFC and Subway, should consider selling businesses such as its stake in Brazilian market leader iFood.

U.S. futures also pointed out to another session of losses on Wall Street.

After a strong third quarter, Delivery Hero said it expected full-year revenue of 780-785 million euros ($894-$900 million), compared with previous guidance of 760-780 million euros.

Delivery Hero said its investments were mainly focused on sales and marketing.
German ecommerce company Rocket Internet responded to investor calls to use some of its 2.1 billion euro cash pile on Thursday with a plan to buy back shares worth up to 150 million euros ($175 million), 3.6 percent of its outstanding stock.
