Philip Bowman, ScottishPower Chief Executive, said:

“These are excellent results and the first reported from the newly restructured and re-focused ScottishPower, since the sale of PacifiCorp in March this year. They demonstrate the transformation of the Group and the benefits of the actions we have taken to enhance operational performance and generate attractive returns from our investment programme. As a result, we have achieved strong performances across all business areas, particularly from the Energy Retail & Wholesale business and PPM Energy. In addition, our increased focus on cash generation and better working capital management is already delivering results with an additional million of cash from operations during the period.br>
