FTSE 100 movers: TUI Travels gains on merger reports

Thu, 14th Aug 2014 15:43

TUI Travel advanced following reports its majority owner TUI AG is pressing ahead with plans to merge the two companies.

Germany-based TUI AG, which owns 55% of TUI Travel, said there was "no plan B" in the event of a failure of the proposed merger with the listed UK business.

TUI AG also reported third quarter underlying earnings rose 89% to 163m on a 3% lift in turnover to 11.4bn, resulting in a 28% narrowing in nine-month underlying pre-tax losses before interest and amortisation to 182m.

The company said it expected annual earnings to be "at least at the upper end of guidance" of 6%-12% higher than last year's 762m following strong results at its cruise and hotel divisions and at TUI Travel, which contributes more than 80% of its profits.

Petrofac was another high riser a day after announcing it won a contract to build a refinery for Malaysia's state-owned Petronas worth $500m.

In contrast, G4S, Admiral Group and Rio Tinto were among the biggest fallers.
