Week Ahead - Can Royal Mail deliver the right message?
Thursday 19 January
UK mail market leader Royal Mail (RMG) provides a third quarter update on 19 January in which analysts will most likely focus on trends in marketing mail and parcels volume.
Marketing mail volume was already down 8% in the six months to 25 September 2016. Further declines might put pressure on operating profit, which is already expected to fall marginally to £542m in Royal Mail’s current financial year.
Other areas of interest in the update will include progress on cost cutting and a consultation with employees on pensions.
