Colt Group SA (COLT.L, CLTZF.PK) Thursday said 2011 pretax profit went up to 72.0 million euros from 47.0 million euros in 2010. Excluding exceptional items, prior-year profit before tax was 77.1 million euros. On a per-share basis, earnings slipped to 0.07 euros from last year's 0.08 euros.

Revenues for the year slipped 1.9 percent to 1.55 billion euros from 1.58 billion euros due to a 7.7 percent drop in Voice revenues which offset the 0.5 percent growth in Data and the 7.9 percent improvement in Managed Services revenues.

Separately the company announced the retirement of Board member Hans Eggerstedt effective April 26, 2012. As Chairman of the Audit Committee, Eggerstedt is likely to be succeeded by Anthony Rabin while Sergio Giacoletto is expected to step into the role of Senior Independent Director.

A ban on athletes using stamina-boosting gases - xenon and argon - came into effect on Monday. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) activators Xenon and Argon have been added to the 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods List following the required three-month notice period and UNESCO's communication to all States Parties. A recommendation to revise the British manufacturing growth eased further in August to its lowest level in 14 months as output and demand increased at slower rates, survey results from Markit Economics showed Monday.

Along with the unexpected drop in spending, government figures released on Friday showed that incomes rose at a slower pace in July than in the previous month.
