first_imgFood ingredients and bakery supplier Real Good Food (RGF) saw share prices drop 20% after it warned that profits for the year would not hit market expectations.The board at RGF said in yesterday’s profit warning statement that it did not expect the final profit outcome for the financial year ended 31 March to meet current market expectations.Extensive investment and restructuring, as well as the sale of Napier Brown sugar to Tereos last September, has had a “short-term effect” on the share price, which yesterday dropped over 20% to a low of 34.10p – a low not seen since April of last year, when low EU sugar prices soured trading at Napier Brown.The group also cited “one-off events” as having had an impact in the profit warning, and indicated that its investments in cake decoration, food ingredients and premium bakery in the last year had also affected margins.It said: “The business has invested heavily in people, product and brand across all its businesses as it executes its strategy of achieving the optimal operating platform from which to drive significant future growth.”As a result, ebitda within the continuing business is expected to remain flat year on year. The stock has recovered some of the losses and is now trading 12.4% down at 39p.The statement said: “The current financial year has been one of significant transition for the group as it implements its operational strategy and investment programme across the business.”last_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Djokovic clinches fifth Italian Open title Djokovic zooms to 10th Italian Open final Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Rafael Nadal came through his first stern examination at the US Open to move a step closer to a maiden Flushing Meadows meeting with Roger Federer. The Spanish second seed dropped a set for the first time in the tournament but still saw off 2014 champion Marin Cilic 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-2. Nadal was clearly irritated when given a time violation as he served midway through the second set, and was broken moments later. But the three-time champion quickly shrugged it off to march into the last eight, with a stunning around-the-net winner bringing up match point to the delight of an Arthur Ashe crowd which included Nadal’s friend Tiger Woods. “It’s an easy shot to describe, but difficult to make,” said Nadal. “I don’t know, I think I followed the ball good because he had a good volley and I saw it. “I ran fast to the ball and I saw at the last moment there would maybe be a small space on that side. “I think it was the only way to win that point. I hit it well, but to hit that spot you need some luck.” It is a statistical quirk that Federer and Nadal, rivals across 15 years and 40 matches, have never met at the US Open. But defending champion Novak Djokovic’s exit has opened up the possibility of a box-office final between the pair. Federer faces Grigor Dimitrov, a player he has beaten seven times out of seven, in the last eight. Nadal will take on Diego Schwartzman after sixth seed Alexander Zverev ran out of steam in his bid to reach the quarter-finals for the first time. The 22-year-old had already played 14 sets in three matches before taking on Schwartzman in round four. He took the first set but Argentinian Schwartzman hit back to win the next two. There was controversy when Zverev was given a point penalty after an audible obscenity, giving Schwartzman a 5-2 lead in the fourth. Umpire James Keothavong had earlier issued a warning when Zverev smashed a ball away, but the German claimed he had not heard it. “I mean, a code violation is fine. I didn’t even argue that,” he said. “But neither of us heard me getting a warning in the first place. “So it was like, OK, a warning is fine, it’s no problem, but why am I getting a point penalty? “He said he gave me a warning before. I didn’t hear it. Diego didn’t hear it. Most of the crowd didn’t hear it. “OK, it happened. It happened. It’s fine. I think the umpires next time should let me know about it.” Matteo Berrettini, the Italian 24th seed, roared through in straight sets against unseeded Andrey Rublev. Russian Rublev had previously beaten seeded players Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios but he found Berrettini too strong, losing 6-1 6-4 7-6 (6). He will play Frenchman Gael Monfils, who looks to be playing some of the best tennis of his flamboyant but injury-hit career this fortnight. Monfils beat Spain’s Pablo Andujar 6-1 6-2 6-2.Tags: Flushing MeadowsMarin CilicRafael NadalUS Openlast_img read more
