Aggreko PLC (LON:AGK) has said it now expects its pre-tax profits for 2020 will be “slightly ahead” of the top end of its guidance range of £80mln-£100mln as a result of what it said was a “continued recovery” in activity levels across a number of its markets.

In a brief trading update, the FTSE 250 provider of temporary power generation equipment also said a “strong cash performance” in the second half had resulted in a reduction in net debt of around £200mln.
