    Half Year 2019 Pearson PLC Earnings Call

  • Reuters

    UPDATE 2-European markets lifted by telecoms and media big guns

    Large-cap companies pulled European stocks higher on Friday as a surge in Britain's Vodafone and strong earnings for media businesses and Nestle spurred recovery from a sell-off driven by the European Central Bank. Vodafone gained 10.6% to record it strongest performance since late 2002 on plans to separate its towers unit in Europe into a new company worth upwards of 18 billion euros ($20 billion) with a view to a potential stock market listing. The STOXX 600 telecoms index rose 2.3% as shares of Cellnex, currently Europe's biggest towers group, gained 3.3% and Telecom Italia rose 4.1% after Vodafone agreed to jointly roll out 5G in Italy and merge their mobile mast operations.

    Education group Pearson hails tipping point after digital transformation

    British education company Pearson expects to grow sales in 2020 after more than five years of declines, calling a tipping point for a company that has been hammered by the sudden shift to digital learning. Forced to cut thousands of jobs to shrink its cost base while investing in new digital platforms, the world's biggest education provider said it expected sales to stabilise this year before rising in 2020 and beyond. In 2018 it eked out profit growth by cutting costs but said it now expected investments in new technology platforms to help the group to produce top-line growth.
