Healthcare services provider UDG Healthcare forecast its annual earnings per share to rise by up to 6% after it made a 'good' start in the first quarter.

Constant currency pre-tax profit in the three months through December was well ahead on-year and in-line with previously communicated expectations.

For the full year through September, constant currency adjusted diluted earnings per share were expected to be 4%-6% ahead of last year's EPS of 45.9 cents.

The group's performance had been driven by 'good' underlying growth supplemented by the impact of acquisitions completed in the 2018 financial year, UDG said.
