UK - Uniq, the chilled food supplier still 90% owned by its pension scheme, has reported a 47% rise in operating profits to £4.7m ($7.3m)in the first half of the year.
The group also reported a £130m credit to its profit and loss account - which is now £109m in the black - resulting from its pension restructuring.
The scheme took control of 90.2% of the firm's shares in February and received a one-off cash payment of £14m in return for releasing the company from its £436m pension deficit.
The company announced this month that more than 98% of Uniq's shareholders had backed the deal, which would remain open for a further two weeks to secure approval from the rest of its investors.
