MILAN (Reuters) - Italy’s Pirelli (PIRC.MI) on Monday reported a 9.7 percent rise in nine-month adjusted operating profit before charges and start-up costs, helped by strong demand for high-margin premium tyres.

Revenue in the period was up 9 percent to 4.04 billion euros ($4.7 billion), with the high value segment accounting for 58 percent of total sales.

The maker of tyres for Formula One racing teams and premium automakers said adjusted operating profit before non-recurring and restructuring charges and start-up costs is expected to be around 930 million euros in the whole of 2017, up from 844 million euros a year earlier.

The group re-listed on the Milan bourse last month, two years after it was taken over by China National Chemical Corp (ChemChina).
