LONDON (Dow Jones)--Pearson PLC (PSON.LN), the publisher of the

first half of 2012 due to seasonal effects and a loss of earnings
following the sale of its stake in index and data service company FTSE
The U.K.-based company said it still expects sales and operating profit to grow over the full year as previously forecast.
