MILAN Oct 17 Italian airport retailer Autogrill
said on Thursday its HMSHost International unit had won
new contracts expected to add 175 million pounds ($279 million)
to revenue over 10 years.
Autogrill saw sales of around 105 million pounds in
2013-2023 from eight food and drink shops it will run at
Eurotunnel terminals, connecting Britain and France.
A second contract to run seven retail outlets at Britain's
East Midlands airport is expected to yield another 70 million
pounds in revenue between 2013 and 2021.
Shares in Autogrill were up 1 percent by 1135 GMT,
outperforming a 0.6 percent fall in Italy's blue-chip stock
($1 = 0.6278 British pounds)
