Rolls-Royce Shares Jump as Company Raises Full-Year Forecast

Aero-engineer Rolls-Royce raised its full-year operating profit forecast by 45% on Wednesday after delivering a stronger-than-expected performance in the first half of 2023. Shares in the company surged 24% to 190 pence following the announcement—their highest level since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

Chief Executive Tufan Erginbilgic stated that the company has made significant progress this year, referring to its rise in military spending and the recovery of its long-haul flying business. The company also underwent several operational improvements.

Now, the company expects to achieve a profit this year between 1.2 billion and 1.4 billion pounds ($1.6-1.8 billion). Its previous expectation was in the range of 800 million and 1 billion pounds.

“Despite a challenging external environment, notably supply chain constraints, we are starting to see the early impact of our transformation in all our divisions,” Erginbilgic commented on Wednesday.
