Transport operator FirstGroup plans to break itself up, selling its Greyhound coach business in the US and separating off its First Bus operations as part of a new strategy aimed at reviving the group and driving growth. The plans were announced in a strategy update issued alongside results showing full-year losses narrowing from £327m to £97.9m on revenues up 11.4% at £7.1bn. FirstGroup plans to focus on North America where its First Student and First Transit contracting businesses generate 60% of its operating profits. It says these two US businesses have the “greatest potential to generate sustainable value and growth over time”. A formal sale process for Greyhound is under way and the group is pursuing “structural alternatives” to separate First Bus, which has “limited synergies” with its other operations. The company also warns that it has “concerns with the current balance of risk and reward being offered” in the franchising process in UK rail, where it has two franchises and is awaiting the outcome of the Government’s review into the structure of the industry.
FirstGroup Plc (FGP.L) Announced, in its final results for the year ended 31 March 2019, that revenues rose to £7.1 billion from £6.4 billion posted in the preceding year.
