arg and experian: - driving sustainable growth is key
- future separation

one-off charges have been made covering the argos oft fine (£16.2m) and homebase reorganisation costs (£18.3m). excluding these one-off charges, group pbt was £945m (up 14%) and basic eps before amortisation of goodwill and exceptional items was 66.2p (up 9%).
sir victor blank, chairman of gus, commented:

"the board has drawn its conclusions from the strategic review about future group structure and has started to take actions accordingly. it recognises that there is no strategic logic in maintaining arg, experian and burberry within the same group in the long term. while the separation of arg and experian will be undertaken at the right time in the future, the board has decided that it is appropriate to demerge burberry later this year to give our investors a direct interest in burberry's exciting future."
