Wolverhampton & Dudley will announce on Friday that the Wizard Inns pub company, bought this year for £89.9m, is being integrated ahead of schedule. The pubs and brewing company is expected to announce a big rise in annual profits to more than £70m from last year's £59.6m. Chief executive Ralph Findlay will report strong trading across the company. But investors will want details of how rising costs – higher energy and Sky TV charges, for example – are affecting the bottom line.
