Savills Plc announce they have traded in line with expectations.
Savills plc, the international real estate advisor, held their Annual General Meeting (AGM) yesterday 9th May 2017, they announced that during the year to date Savills has traded in line with expectations and ahead of the corresponding period in 2016, both as reported and on a constant currency basis.
In relation to the UK Prime Residential market they stated: As expected, volumes in the UK Prime Residential market have been lower in the year to date compared with the very strong comparable period in advance of April 2016’s increase in Stamp Duty. Our UK Rural business has performed better than anticipated. The period leading up to the UK General Election is expected to have a short term adverse impact on residential transaction activity over the next few weeks.
In conclusion, the company which operates in the UK and abroad said that: they had started the year well, typically the first four months represent a disproportionately small element of the expected outturn for the full year. Against a political and economic backdrop which demonstrates greater levels of uncertainty than a few months ago, we continue to anticipate that our performance will remain in line with our expectations.
