By BFN News | 02:32 PM | Tuesday 26 February, 2019


Waste management group Augean swung to an annual profit after it booked one-off gains from asset sales and lifted its revenue. Net profit for the year through December amounted to £9.9m, compared to a loss of £3.5m on-year. Adjusted1 revenue excluding landfill tax rose 22% to £68.8m, while adjusted pre-tax profit rose 69% to £11.4m. The company did not declare any dividends, due to an ongoing tax payment dispute with UK tax authorities. Augean said it had made a 'strong start' to initial trading in the first months of 2019, with results well ahead on-year and in line with expectations. 'The board is confident in the group's prospects for the year,' Augean said. At 2:32pm: (LON:AUG) Augean PLC share price was -2p at 82p Story provided by StockMarketWire.com
