(Reuters) - British bookmaker William Hill Plc reported lower full-year adjusted operating profit on Friday, hurt partly by higher costs to expand in the U.S.

Adjusted operating profit fell to 233.6 million pounds for the 53 weeks ended Jan. 1 from 273.8 million pounds reported for the 52 weeks ended Dec. 26, 2017.
