Text size Aa Aa

(Reuters) – Funeral services provider Dignity Plc <DTY.L> said on Tuesday that it expects its full-year profit to above market expectations, boosted by higher average prices for its services and lower-than-expected costs.

The company, which operates more than 700 funeral locations across the UK, now expects to report fiscal 2018 underlying operating profit of about 79 million pounds ($101.89 million).

Dignity also added that average prices for funerals for the current fiscal year will be lower compared to last year due to reforms sought out by British regulators.
