Positive Points: Trading for the quarter proved to be in line with previous management expectations. The Chief Executive noted that "Our major programme of restructuring and investment is on-track and will drive a leaner, more cash generative, faster growing business from 2015." The company previously highlighted that it will benefit from the absence of £176 million of gross restructuring charges expensed in 2013, which it expects to generate £60 million of incremental cost savings in 2014. Investment in the group's businesses is being made. The Chief Executive has in the past expressed long term confidence, noting that "we are uniquely positioned to tackle some of the biggest challenges in global education including the transforming power of technology. I am particularly excited about the significant opportunity digital education offers for Pearson and the next generation of learners." The Financial Times business generated adjusted operating profit growth of 17% in 2013. Management previously highlighted that "digital subscriptions to the FT continued to grow strongly." The group's business portfolio is still being assessed and adjusted. In December 2013, Pearson announced the disposal of its Mergermarket business to BC Partners for £382 million. The group's dividend policy remains progressive. The total dividend for the 2013 full year was raised by 7%.

Negative Points: Headline sales declined by 6% due to the strength of sterling against the US dollar and key emerging market currencies. Currency volatility can work both for and against the company. With the group generating approximately 60% of its sales in the US, the movement between the pound and the dollar remains significant. The Chief Executive previously noted that "We expect trading conditions to remain challenging in 2014. We believe cyclical pressures will begin to ease from 2015". Cyclical and policy-related pressures for its largest markets are expected to persist, impacting revenues and margins. A combination of higher than expected restructuring charges in relation to its formerly announced acquisition of Random House and merger with its Penguin books division and below forecast trading at its North American Higher Education business have impacted. The company previously noted that "our North American education business faced a tough trading environment throughout 2013, driven by state budget pressures and the transition to the Common Core (affecting our School business) and lower enrolments (affecting Higher Education)." The outlook for advertising markets (for the Financial Times) remains subject to macroeconomic conditions.

Financial Highlights: Headline sales declined by 6%. Management still expects to report adjusted earnings per share of between 62 pence and 67 pence in 2014. The group reiterated that its profits are heavily weighted to the second half.

First quarter results: In the wake of full year results which disappointed investors, management appeared to reassure, with the share price up over 4% in early morning stockmarket trading. The board summarised trading in the period as "in line." Sales when excluding Penguin and Mergermarket, had increased by 2% on a constant currency basis and 1% underlying, to £900 million. Group headline sales had declined by 6% due to the strength of sterling against the US dollar and key emerging market currencies. The Chief Executive noted that "Pearson has had a solid start to the year, in line with our expectations. Our major programme of restructuring and investment is on-track and will drive a leaner, more cash generative, faster growing business from 2015
