FTSE 250 movers: 4imprint surges on earnings beat forecast

(Sharecast News) - FTSE 250: 18,924.93, -0.12%

Shares in 4imprint Group surged on Friday as the promotional merchandise maker said it expected annual earnings to be slightly above forecasts after a strong trading performance during 2023.

Group revenue was forecast to rise 16% to $1.33bn with pre-tax profit of at least $140m, slightly above the upper end of the current range of analysts' forecasts and 2022's $104m.

Cash and bank deposits at the 2023 year-end were $105m, up from $87m.

Watches of Switzerland regained some ground after Thursday's slump on the back of a revenue warning.
