Enero: Hotwire and Frank 'trading well'

Hotwire and Frank PR "continue to trade well with above-average margin achievement" in the UK and Europe, according to its Australian parent company Enero Group, despite the "significant impact of Brexit on general consumer and economic confidence". This is according to the group's half-year results presentation, which makes no reference to either firm's performance in the US, other than noting the acquisition by Hotwire of Eastwick.
