Compass Group’s origins can be traced back to 1941, when businessman Jack Bateman founded catering company ‘Factory Canteens Limited’, soon renamed as ‘Bateman Catering’. The company was acquired by Grand Metropolitan plc in 1967. Compass Group was formed in 1987, following a management buy-out from Grand Metropolitan. 

The company grew rapidly in the 1990s and 2000s through a range of acquisitions, taking over the likes of Travellers Fare, Eurest International and Morrison Management Specialists. Compass Group merged with media company Granada in 2000, with the intention of separating Granada’s media division and incorporating Granada’s catering business under the Compass name. The companies demerged in 2001, forming Compass and Granada Media. By 2005, Compass Group had become the world’s largest catering company. Today it has operations in 45 countries, employs 500,000 people and serves 5.5 billion meals annually at 55,000 client locations across the globe.

In FY 2020, after a strong Q1 in which Compass reported revenue growth of 5.3%, the closure of non-essential businesses in response to the Covid-19 pandemic had huge implications for the business. For the full-year ending 30 September 2020, the company reported total revenues of £20.2bn compared to £24.8bn for 2019, while operating profit was £561m compared to £1.9bn in 2019, a decrease of 69%. 

With Capital.com’s comprehensive live chart, you can quickly track the current Compass Group plc stock price and view past performance.

Compass stock hit a record high of £21.04 a share on 27 September 27 2019. It then began to trend down, falling to £18.38 by 8 December 2019. Share price then began to rise, reaching £19.53 a share on 16 February 2020, only to lose most of its gains in the following months as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. On 16 July 2020, the CPG share price closed the trading session at £10.50, a fall of more than 46% from its February high. That fall is closely linked to the closure of non-essential businesses implemented in response to the global pandemic. As restrictions have eased, Compass stock has recovered some losses, closing at £16.08 a share on 28 May 2021.

I have been usingCapital.comm platform for a year now. I did have some issues with using the platform in the earlier days but I received excellent support from Capital.com guiding me in the process of learning about the platform and put me on track. I am very happy with this platform and find it very easy to use for my trading needs. Capital.com also arranged a series of trading webinars last summer, which I attended and benefited from.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
