2017-08-01 londonstockexchange
“Centrica delivered a solid first half financial performance despite reduced energy demand due to warm weather and strong competitive pressures, and we remain on track to achieve the 2017 targets we set out in February. We have made further significant strategic progress, continuing to reallocate resources away from our asset businesses towards our customer-facing businesses. With the announced asset disposals and the creation of a new European E&P joint venture, we expect the first phase of our portfolio transformation to be complete by the end of 2017, leaving the Group well-positioned to deliver longer-term returns and growth.
