UDG Healthcare has said it had made a strong start to the year and expected adjusted full-year earnings per share to be 5-8pc ahead of last year on a constant currency basis.

The healthcare services provider added that if current exchange rates were sustained for the year, reported EPS would be higher than this range.

UDG stands to benefit from the recent strengthening of the dollar and sterling against the euro.

The company reported adjusted earnings of €28.77 cents per share in the year ended Sept. 30, 2014.
