There are no plans for job reductions.”

A Reuters report yesterday said, “The company said the job cuts and overhaul of its business would cost it 500 million pounds and they would be spread across 2018, 2019 and 2020, and would be reported as separate one-off costs, allowing it to stick to its targets for free cash flow.”

We are enjoying a period of sustained success, underlined by our stated long-term, sustainable growth strategy.
