(Updates)
Jan 19 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen
opening 45 points higher at 6,766 on Tuesday, according to
financial bookmakers, with futures .FFIc1 up 0.4% ahead of
cash market open.

* EXPERIAN: Experian Plc EXPN.L posted third-quarter
revenue growth that exceeded its previous target, as the world's
largest credit data firm benefited from strong U.S. mortgage
volumes while flagging a slowdown in the current quarter
* PREMIER FOODS: Premier Foods PFD.L , the maker of OXO
cubes and Bisto gravy, said it expects higher full-year profit
after online sales jumped 90% in the third-quarter. * AO WORLD: Retailer AO World AO.L reported a 67.2% surge
in third-quarter sales on increased online demand for electrical
products from consumers stuck at homes during the Christmas
holiday period. * BRITISH LAND: Real estate firm British Land BLND.L
appointed Bhavesh Mistry, currently deputy chief financial
officer at supermarket operator Tesco TSCO.L , as its new
finance head. * HAMMERSON PLC: London-based shopping centre operator
Hammerson Plc HMSO.L said it received less than half of the
rents due for the first quarter as retailers grapple with new
COVID-19 curbs across the UK and most of Europe. * RIO TINTO: Rio Tinto RIO.AX reported a 2.4% rise in
fourth-quarter iron ore shipments, helped by industrial activity
in top consumer China which had returned to pre-pandemic levels.

* ECONOMY: The number of shoppers heading out to retail
destinations across Britain fell by 10.9% in the week to Jan.
16, versus the previous week. * OIL: Brent crude futures edged up as optimism that
government stimulus will buoy global economic growth and oil
demand trumped concerns that renewed COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns
globally could cool fuel consumption. * GOLD: Gold prices rose, off a 1-1/2-month low hit in the
previous session, as the dollar slipped and hopes for further
global stimulus underpinned the safe-haven metal. * The blue-chip FTSE 100 index .FTSE slipped 0.2% in
listless trading across Europe on Monday, weighed down by falls
in energy and travel stocks, while tighter restrictions on
businesses led to concerns about the near-term impact on the
economy. UK CORPORATE DIARY:
