The Board is confident that the 2007 performance will be in line with our significant growth expectations. Organic revenue on a constant currency basis* is projected to increase by 9%. All three of Informa's divisions: Academic & Scientific, Professional and Commercial, are contributing well to the year on year increase. Commercial is having a particularly strong 2007 of double digit growth. Trading within each of the divisions is good across all of Informa's business activities: events, performance improvement and publishing.
Shares in Informa have under performed the UK market by 22% and are currently trading at 466p. Panmure is targeting a price between 530 and 550p. Over the past six months the stock has traded over 550 but has fallen recently.
