The future of Wolverhampton and Dudley's four breweries is still unclear after the firm failed to publish details of its review of the business. It is expected that W&D will close two of its breweries ­ possibly Cameron's in Hartlepool and the recently acquired Mansfield operation. The brewer ­ which has now completed the integration of Marston's and Mansfield ­ was expected to announce a decision this week along with its full year results. The figures were better than expected, with pretax profit before exceptionals up 29.5% to £65m in the 12 months to September 30. Sales were up 44% to £598.8m, thanks to a £130m contribution from Mansfield. W&D said its core brands performed strongly over the year on the back of tv advertising support. Marston's Pedigree saw its market share rise 0.4% to 8.8%. The brewery review is running in tandem with an overall strategic review started in the wake of approaches by entrepreneur Robert Breare and private equity group Botts. W&D chairman David Miller said: "The results of the brewing review will be disclosed when we are in a position to report to shareholders on the broader strategic review." {{NEWS }}
