QinetiQ Group plc (QQ.L), a defense, security and aerospace company, reported Thursday that it has continued to perform well in the third quarter. The company is maintaining expectations for Group performance in the current fiscal year 2019.

In its third-quarter trading update, the company said the EMEA Services division continued to deliver encouraging organic order and revenue growth compared to the prior year. Revenue under contract and operating profit were in line with expectations.
