Successful transformation continues
31 Jul '14
Successful transformation continues with third quarter profit increase

"Our transformation is progressing very well. Today's announcement of a £32 million rise in underlying EBIT, represents our eighth consecutive quarter of increased profits. Every business improved and the UK delivered the most significant contribution, accounting for over three quarters of the total rise, as we start to realise its full potential.

Twenty four months into our transformation, we are confident that our deliberate actions to improve operating efficiency and yield management, digitise our business and develop new exclusive products that build on the strength and trust that our brand represents, will significantly improve Thomas Cook's profitability and growth trajectory. As a stronger and more resilient business, our operational performance remains in line with our expectations for FY14 and we look forward to delivering more value in FY15 and onwards."

Harriet Green, Chief Executive of Thomas Cook

· Additional Wave 1 cost out of £51 million since 31 March 2014; Wave 2 developing well

· Substantial progress digitising the business; improved web penetration and mobile and tablet bookings up 73%

Pleasure to have you here and congratulations with the World Cup. I really do think most of England were routing for Germany, and not just given your opposition in Argentina.

Germany is cool. Great country. Great team. And Merkel cheering from the rafters reminds all good Englishmen of Thatcher. Gawd bless 'er.
