Ryanair profits rise, HSBC put money aside to protect against charges of alleged wrong doing, Publicis buy Sapient for £2.3bn in cash
3rd November 2014

Jamie explains why HSBC have become the latest bank to put aside money for alleged wrongdoing, following Lloyds and others. 

Publicis hit the news today after agreeing to take over US-based Sapient for $3.7bn (£2.3bn) in cash. Publicis may be not be a household name but are the world’s third largest advertising group. British based WPP is the largest. This move is thought to signal Publicis’s intentions to catch up with their rivals.

Ryanair have seen their half year profits rise by 32 per cent. The budget flight giant have lifted their full year profit forecaster following this success and predicts traffic to rise by 16% in the coming six months. Jamie discusses the improvement in customer service, which may be fuelling Ryanair’s success.
