WSP beats market expectations

Consultant WSP said it expects its performance to be well ahead of expectations when it reports its half-year results in September.
Its strategy to expand the business into a broad spread of sectors and regions has been successful, reflected by a big increase of its order book to £535 million for the six months to June 30, the firm said.

WSP's operations in the UK, Scandinavia and USA traded at record levels producing significant growth during the first six months of the year.

It bought three organisations in the Middle East, UK and Sweden and expects to make further acquisitions during the second half.
