Devro Plc 4-month Revenue Up 10% At Constant Currency – Quick Facts
Devro plc (DVO.L) said the Group traded strongly in the period 30 June to 31 October 2022 with reported revenue growth of 16% or up 10% at constant currency compared to the prior year period. The Group said constant currency revenue growth was driven by higher pricing, successful recovery of inflation, as well as good volume increases led by its mature markets. Operating margins were up on the prior year and well ahead of those achieved in the first half.
The Group said its current trading and the full year outlook are slightly ahead of the Board’s expectations.
Gold Edges Lower After Recent Gains
Gold prices edged lower in European trade on Friday after three consecutive sessions of gains.
Gold slipped 0.3 percent to $1,750.30 per ounce, while U.S. gold futures were up 0.3 percent at $1,750.75.
The dollar index held near three-month lows against a basket of major rivals, helping cap bullion’s downside.
The dollar is also on course for a weekly decline on hopes for slower interest-rate hikes in the United States.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note eased by two basis points to 3.6887 percent as investors continued to absorb the Federal Reserve’s November meeting minutes published earlier in the week.
The minutes reinforced investor expectations of less aggressive interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve in its upcoming meetings.
Elsewhere, the ECB’s October meeting minutes suggested the central bank might ‘pause’ monetary tightening if there was a prolonged and deep recession.
U.S. markets will close early today as trading resumes after a holiday on Thursday for Thanksgiving.

Oil Gains As Dollar Weakens On Dovish Fed
Oil prices rose sharply on Friday as the dollar continued to weaken, making it cheaper for non-dollar holders to buy greenback-priced commodities.
Supply-side risks also offered some support amid wrangling over Russian oil price cap and an impending EU ban on Russian oi.
Benchmark Brent crude futures rallied 1.4 percent to $86.54 a barrel, while WTI crude futures were up 2 percent at $79.47.
The U.S. dollar hovered near a three-month low and was headed for a weekly loss on hopes for slower interest-rate hikes in the United States.
European diplomats remained undecided about the level of a price cap on Russian oil despite the looming December 5th deadline. The EU plans to ban purchases of the country’s oil products from Feb. 5.
Amid talk of split over the deal to cap prices for Russian seaborne oil, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy today called on European Union governments to remain united against Russia’s war and to severely limit the price for Russian oil.
“There is no split, there is no schism among Europeans, and we have to preserve this. This is our mission number one this year,” Zelenskiy said in an address via a live video link to a conference in Lithuania.
Earlier, media reports suggested that the G-7 countries were planning to impose a cap on Russian seaborne oil of $65-$70 a barrel.
