ABF Earnings Likely Up Thanks To Primark

ABF said today that it's earnings for the current financial year, which ends on September 12th, were likely to be better than it had previously forecast due to an improved performance from Primark.

Sales at the discount sweatshop retailer are set to increase from 5% forecast in the first half to 7% in the full financial year, they say.

I'm treating Mrs Nogger (#3 - the nice one) to a trip to Middlesbrough on Friday, so we might pop in and treat the kids to a few new bits and bats, so profits might come in a little bit higher yet.
