- Quality assurance provider Intertek Group said Tuesday revenue rose modestly in 10 months through October weighed down by weakness in the trade and resources division. The company, however, left its outlook for full-year performance unchanged.

'The group remains on track to deliver its 2018 target of good organic revenue growth with moderate margin progression at constant currency and strong cash conversion,' the company said.

For the period from 1 January to 31 October, group revenue rose 0.5% to £2.3bn at actual currency, while organic revenue fell 0.5%.

The products divisions saw revenues rise 3.2% during the period, but that was mostly offset by a 2.4% and 4.4% revenue decline in the trade and resources segments, respectively.
