Centrica Plc rose 3% as Britain's top energy supplier maintained its full-year outlook.

European shares extended losses early on Monday from the biggest weekly slump this year as the U.S.-China standoff quelled hopes that the two largest economies will be able to resolve their trade dispute anytime soon.
