- Healthcare services group UDG Healthcare said its third-quarter pre-tax profit was 'well ahead' on-year on a constant currency basis, while reiterating its full-year guidance.

Profit growth in the nine months through June was driven by a combination of underlying growth and acquisitions.

Constant currency adjusted diluted earnings per share growth for the year through September was still seen at between 5% and 7%, ahead of last year's 45.9c.
