Expects loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of GBP400,000 versus earnings of GBP33.0 million year before. Notes reduced overheads by GBP4.7 million to GBP25.9 million. "2020 brought unprecedented challenges for the Out-of-Home sector as a result of the public lockdowns and social restrictions brought in by governments across all our territories," company says. Withholds guidance for 2021, but notes strong financial position. "The board believes that it is now strategically better placed to capitalise on advertising demands once restrictions are fully lifted and audiences return to Ocean's locations, and outdoor advertising spend begins to recover," company adds.

"In addition, as a result of lower travel and event costs due to Covid-19 restrictions, higher margins are expected to be achieved in financial 2021 than would have been anticipated, which will result in the company's profitability also being ahead of market expectations in financial 2021," company says.
