Feb 9 (Reuters) - French media group Lagardere raised its guidance for 2016 group recurring earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) on Thursday after a strong end of year performance driven by its Travel Retail and Sports and Entertainment divisions.
The company now targets group recurring EBIT growth for 2016 of around 13 percent, versus a previous target of just over 10 percent.
The company reported fourth-quarter revenue of 1.98 billion euros ($2.11 billion), up 2.4 percent on a like-for-like basis. ($1 = 0.9380 euros) (Reporting by Alan Charlish; Editing by Adrian Croft)
