Dow Jones Newswires: Rank lowers operating profit view on casinos, inflation

Rank Group PLC
RNK,
-17.14%

said Monday that it expects like-for-like underlying operating profit for fiscal 2022 to be below its previously guided range due to weaker-than-expected performance at its Grosvenor casino business and inflationary cost pressures.

The U.K. gambling company said it expects like-for-like underlying operating profit to be around 40 million pounds ($48.9 million) for the year ending June 30, compared with the previously-guided range of GBP47 million-GBP55 million.

Grosvenor’s performance has improved post April, but it has been considerably weaker than expected due to a slower-than-expected return of higher-spending overseas customers to London casinos, softness in visitor numbers across the U.K. and a lower-than-average casino win margin in the quarter to date, it said.

Performance in the other business segments has been broadly in line with management’s expectations, it said.
