Interserve keeping up with expectations

Support services and construction group Interserve yesterday said that performance continues in line with expectations and that it has won more than £1.8bn of new work so far in 2013. The FTSE 250-listed firm saw strong growth in UK support services and equipment services and resilient performances in its construction units, which it said offset the impact of lower-than-expected activity in its Middle East oil and gas services business.
