Egg, the pioneer in the British internet banking sector, reported a slightly bigger pre-tax loss for last year, but claimed it was on track to break even in the fourth quarter of this year.

The bank, which floated last June at 160 pence a share, said the loss of £155.3m was in line with its p[lans at the time of the floatation. Last year the bank lost £149.7m.

The results had little effect on Egg shares, which were almost unchanged at 133p after the news. The markets had forecast a loss of that magnitude, predicting one of £151m-£160m.
