CAMBIAN GROUP
Numis reiterated its “buy” rating, following the firm’s acquisition of Woodleigh Community Care for £63m. The broker noted that Cambian’s management believes that it will be able to roll out Woodleigh’s hub-and-spoke model to other parts of its learning disability services.

BALFOUR BEATTY
Westhouse Securities reiterated its “sell” rating after the firm rejected John Laing Infrastructure Fund’s £1bn bid for its PPP portfolio and extended the announcement on KPMG’s contract, which the broker said suggests that the independent review has already found some serious losses.
