Leveraging best practice across
our geographic businesses

The Group’s gross profit margin is in line with last year at 22%, however, with an operating profit margin of 1.6% there is a clear need to reduce costs. Reducing cost is a key focus of our transformation initiatives and we will do this through increased intra-Group cohesion, structural change and better use of technology. With significant cost savings already identified we have an opportunity to leverage best practice in our more profitable businesses and apply this to our underperforming businesses, particularly in the UK.
