Profit before taxation excluding exceptional items is expected to be in line with market expectations. Somerfield's like for like sales growth for the full year was 1.4%. In the H2 of the financial year, like-for-like sales growth was 0.1%. Notwithstanding the figures in the H2, a significant proportion of the group's expected trading profit growth will have come from Somerfield due to the re-balancing of promotions resulting in improved earnings.
