Publishing Group Pearson has reported a £115 million loss for the first half of the year.
Pearson yesterday confirmed the sale of the Financial Times Group to Nikkei for £844m.
Pearson's loss compares to a £36m loss in the first half of 2014.
Pearson said the loss was the result of a £70m write down related to the sale of its US PowerSchool software business.
