- Thermal processing services company Bodycote said Thursday the pace of revenue growth would moderate in the last two months of the year against a tough comparative from last year, but maintained its guidance for the full year.

'As anticipated, the pace of revenue growth will moderate in the last two months given the strong prior year comparator,' the company said.

The dour outlook comes as the company reported that revenue rose 5% to £243.5m in the three months from July through October, led by 11% growth in its specialist technologies segment.

Civil aerospace revenues grew strongly at 14% in the quarter, with North America and Western Europe both registering 'good' growth, supported by increasing output for the LEAP program and an easing in supply chain bottlenecks for Titanium castings, the company said.

Both the energy and general industrials segments saw revenues grow 4% during the quarter.
