Tesco's full-year adjusted operating profit was GBP2.21 billion, compared with a FactSet forecast of GBP2.08 billion based on four analysts' estimates. "Tesco FY 2019 Pretax Profit Rose 29%," at 0630 GMT, misstated in the second paragraph both the forecast figure and the number of analysts polled. The error also appeared in the fifth paragraph of "European Corporate Roundup for Wednesday" at 0738 GMT. The FactSet forecast was for adjusted operating profit of GBP2.08 billion based on four analysts' estimates, not for GBP1.57 billion based on five estimates.
