The company recorded an exceptional cost of £57.1m; £26.7m from its regional bus division and £30.4m from its German rail division.

'For the 2021 financial year, we expect our London & International bus division to generate operating profit similar to that achieved in the 2020 financial year. Our rail division is expected to deliver a breakeven operating result in 2021,' the company said.
