Ocado Q1 Sales Figures – What The Analysts Said
Online retailer Ocado has posted a 10.3% increase in retail revenue in the first quarter of its financial year, to £441.2 million (€470.5 million), with the business seeing higher value basket spend towards the end of the period due to the coronavirus.
