Atkins results to be 'ahead of market expectations'

Consultant Atkins has said its pre-tax profits for the year ended 31 March 2013 to be greater than the £101M market expectation, this firm announced in a trading statement has this week.

The consultants UK headcount has grown and it reports seeing opportunities in the UK’s rail electrification, airport development and aerospace sectors. Margins for the UK business are expected to improve for the second half of the year.

The sale of its UK highways services business is expected to lead to around £4M in costs, but this will be offset by a £15M profit in sale.
