“Strong first half” for Experian

Experian has issued its half-yearly financial report for the six months ended 30 September 2018, reporting a “strong first half.”

The Nottingham-based firm has witnessed a 9% total revenue growth at constant currency, 8% organic revenue growth, 7% total revenue growth to over £1.8bn.

Brian Cassin, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We have started the year well, with first-half organic revenue growth of 8% as we expand our data assets, introduce new global products and gain momentum in Consumer Services.

“We now expect full-year organic revenue growth in line with the first half, and at the top of our previous guidance range. While foreign exchange translation remains a headwind, we expect EBIT growth at or above revenue growth and strong progress in Benchmark earnings per share, all at constant currency.”
