LONDON (Reuters) – British public-services outsourcer Serco <SRP.L> reported a 29% jump in first-half underlying trading profit driven by its American business and said on Wednesday it was confident of growing faster than the market for the next two years.

Profit at Serco, which provides health, security and immigration services to governments, rose to 51 million pounds on revenue that rose 6% at constant currency to 1.48 billion pounds.

Serco, which is coming to the end of a restructuring programme, stuck to its full-year guidance given in a trading update at the end of June.
