Shanks on track for growth

Waste manager Shanks Group said it remains on course for the year, and will focus on UK investment following the end of its refinancing programme. The FTSE 250-listed firm said in an update that it has secured €40m (£35.2m) of long-term debt from Pricoa Capital, maturing in 2018. Consensus forecasts expect Shanks to make £33m pre-tax profit for the year to the end of March.
