Outdoor advertising specialist JCDecaux forecast a slight increase in first-quarter organic revenue today and raised its dividend on last year’s earnings by 9 per cent.

The company said 2013 operating profit rose 3.6 per cent to €623.6 million, while earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) before impairment charges rose 10 per cent to €351.6 million.

“We continue to focus on organic growth and to selectively invest in value accretive acquisitions,” co-chief executive Jean-Francois Decaux said in a statement.

“As far as Q1 2014 is concerned, bearing in mind the limited visibility and continued volatility in most markets, we currently anticipate a slight increase in organic revenues.” (Reuters)
