Mfi Furniture Group Travis Perkins FY pretax flat; expectations for 2006 unchanged

LONDON (AFX) - Travis Perkins PLC, the building materials firm that acquired

DIY retailer Wickes in late 2004 and issued a profit warning last November, has

reported an expected flat pretax profit for 2005, with its performance dragged

down by a DIY price war and the decline in UK consumer confidence.

The group said that with the important Easter period approaching it is too

early to change its expectations for 2006 as a whole, but noted it has made a

"satisfactory" start with merchanting volumes ahead of expectations.

reservations, down from 440, but over the period recorded an increase in net

reservations compared with the same period last year.
