Paddy Power to cross channel

Paddy Power, the bookmaker, is on course to meet analysts’ expectations of a return to profit growth next year and is looking to move into the French market by June, the firm’s chief executive Patrick Kennedy said yesterday. The Irish firm is set to take advantage of a relaxation of French law due next year. “If the market could get going for the World Cup in June next year that would be a result,” said Kennedy.
