P&O shares full steam ahead on buoyant cruise bookings

THERE WAS fresh evidence of strengthening demand in the consumer economy yesterday when P&O, the ferry and cruise group, reported a buoyant start to the year in its cruise business.

On The Up: Peninsular & Orient

P&O, the shipping company, said it will sell property holdings and its construction unit Bovis to focus on cruise, ferry and ports businesses. The shares rose 18 per cent on the week. The company is expected to raise pounds 2bn from the disposals. The decision comes after P&O posted a 30 per cent drop in second-half profit as shipping tariffs fell and cut demand for the services of P&O Nedlloyd, P&O's container shipping joint venture with Royal Nedlloyd.
