PARIS, July 10 French catering-to-vouchers group
Sodexo SA said it expects full-year revenue growth to
range between 1-2 percent as previously forecast after solid
demand in Latin America and Europe slightly lifted third-quarter
The world's No.2 catering services company after Britain's
Compass Group said on Wednesday operating profits for
the year were likely to remain flat in view of a difficult
economic climate in Europe.
Nine-month like-for-like sales rose 2.3 percent, marking a
slight acceleration from 2.1 percent growth in the first-half.
Sodexo, which manages canteens and facilities for office
workers, the armed forces, schools and prisons, and provides
vouchers for meals and gifts, posted sales of 14.219 billion
euros in the nine-months to May 31.
