Budget airline easyJet delivers full-year results tomorrow with annual profits expected to have soared by up to half.

The Luton-based carrier cheered investors last month as it said earnings for the 12 months to the end of September were expected to reach between £470 million and £480m, against a figure of £317m last year.

It also said revenues per seat looked set to have grown by around 6%.

EasyJet enjoyed a strong summer for holiday bookings despite Britain basking in the warmest heatwave for years.

Baby products retailer Mothercare is expected to overcome tough trading in the UK to post a sharp improvement in half-year results on Thursday.

The group saw UK like-for-like sales slide 1.9% in its second quarter and warned profit margins were being squeezed amid a highly promotional market in home and travel products.

It admitted trading conditions were tougher than expected on UK high streets - a blow after the group had begun to halt sales declines at the end of its last financial year, when like-for-like trading was held flat.

But buoyant international trading and restructuring efforts under a three-year turnaround plan are helping offset the sales woes in its domestic arm.

Home emergency business Homeserve will deliver interim results tomorrow as it continues to labour under the shadow of a mis-selling probe by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Earlier this year, it said it was setting aside £6m to cover the costs of a possible fine, on top of a £24.2m provision already made to cover compensation and an overhaul of working practices.

The Walsall-based firm has been under a cloud since first revealing problems with its sales calls in October 2011.

Homeserve has already indicated its earnings for the half-year to the end of September are expected to be similar to last year, when it recorded profits of £26m.

It said performance had been in line with expectations.
