In today's episode Adrian Lawrence our in-house financial expert talks about Rolls Royce who have reported a £4billion loss today compared to £583m profit in the previous year. Their results are brutal but that does reflect that their model is to charge for the hours their engines are running rather than for sales of engines. The impact of the worldwide pandemic has very badly impacted on their model. The company is reducing its workforce by 7,000 people and is in discussions to sell some of its subsidiaries.
