Revenue in its Iberia division, which comprises Spain and Portugal, stood at €2.32 billion in the nine-month period, compared to €2.28 billion in the corresponding period last year, an increase of 1.6%.
In France, total revenue stood at €3.1 billion, while in Italy, where trading in the period was particularly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group described its performance as 'very positive'.
