Foxtons Group plc announce financial results

Foxtons Group plc, London’s leading estate agent, today announces its financial results for the year ended 31 December 2015.

In their operational summary they state:

Revenue growth across all segments (Sales +3.4%, Lettings +2.3%, Mortgage broking +31.8%)

Both Sales and Lettings segments operating at Adjusted EBITDA margins in excess of 30%

A strong lettings business generating 46% of Group revenue providing a balance to the naturally more cyclical sales market

Continued successful organic expansion with seven new branches opened in 2015, bringing the total at year end to 58 branches

Seven further branches secured for 2016

Commenting on today’s statement, Nic Budden, Chief Executive Officer said:

The Company performed well during 2015 generating revenue growth across all business segments. Our market leading position in London and strong customer proposition enabled us to significantly outperform in a sales market which was slow to recover post the General Election of May 2015.

Our successful branch expansion has supported growth as well as providing us with a wider, stronger network across London. We finished the year with 58 branches, of which over 80% are now outside central London (Zone 1).  Since the year end, we have opened a further four new branches with three more scheduled for later in the year.

This positive performance, together with our strong cash flow generation, has enabled a 13.4% increase in total dividends proposed of 11.0p per share.

Looking ahead, the London residential property market continues to be highly attractive both in terms of sales and lettings although it is too early to predict how transaction volumes may be impacted by recent changes to the tax regime and the short term political and economic uncertainty caused by the UK referendum on leaving the European Union.  We have entered the new year with an encouraging sales pipeline, a strong lettings book and a clear strategy for further growth through our organic branch expansion.
