- Origin Enterprises, the agri-services group, has maintained its full year earnings guidance after issuing a trading update for the nine months to 30 April 2015.

There was a 0.8% increase in underlying revenue for the third quarter compared to the previous year.

The Group's earnings profile is significantly weighted towards the second half of the financial year with in excess of 90% of operating profit from agri-services arising in that period.

Demand for services and inputs in the final quarter is expected to be lower when compared with last year reflecting a more normalised level of seasonal intensity combined with the current pressure on farm incomes generally. Based upon a good third quarter performance the company says it is maintaining full year earnings guidance in adjusted diluted earnings per share.
