Shares in Northern Foods, the UK group behind Goodfella’s pizza and Fox’s biscuits, fell this morning (1 June) after the company booked flat annual sales and earnings.
The company reported a 0.5% rise in underlying pre-tax profits to GBP39.2m (US$56.8m) on a 0.2% increase in revenue to GBP977m.
However, Northern said underlying revenue, a “key measure” that excludes factors including the impact of foreign exchange, M&A and discontinued operations, rose 1%.
“Northern Foods has traded solidly in challenging market conditions,” said chief executive Stefan Barden.
Shares in Northern were down 1.6% at 47.5p at 09:07 BST this morning.
