Interim Results

23 November 2017


("Mountview" or "the Group" or "the Company")



Mountview is pleased to announce its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2017


Turnover at GBP33.0 million down by 2.9% (2016 - GBP34.0m)

Gross profit at GBP20.8 million down by 13.7% (2016- GBP24.1m)

Profit before tax at GBP18.4 million down by 15.2% (2016 - GBP21.7m)

Earnings per share at 381.3 pence down by 14.7% (2016 - 446.9p)

Net assets per share at GBP89.1up by 6.8% (2016 - GBP83.4)


Mountview Estates P.L.C. advises its shareholders that, following the issue of the interim results, the relevant dates in respect of the interim dividend payment of 200p per share are as follows:

   Ex-dividend date        15 February 2018 
   Record date                16 February 2018 
   Payment date              26 March 2018 

Chief Executive Officer's Statement

At the Annual General Meeting held on 9 August 2017 those shareholders deemed to be independent exercised their right to reject the re-election of Mrs. M. L. Jarvis as an independent non-executive director. At the General Meeting held in accordance with the UKLA Listing Rules on 13 November 2017, when all shareholders were entitled to vote, it was resolved to re-appoint Mrs. M. L. Jarvis as a director of the Company. Thus the balance and stability of the Board is maintained.


I have written before of the uncertainties overshadowing the economic situation and until the bureaucrats in Brussels agree to meaningful negotiations with our government those uncertainties will remain. Whilst this Company conducts its business entirely within the borders of the United Kingdom it cannot isolate itself from the macroeconomic situation. It is against this background that, with the exception of net assets per share, the figures of Our Performance on the previous page are down. The Company remains financially sound with low gearing and has made good purchases during the six months ended 30 September 2017.


The interim dividend is maintained at 200p per share in respect of the year ending 31 March 2018 and is payable on 26 March 2018 to shareholders on the Register of Members as at 16 February 2018.


Since 30 September 2017 the Company has completed the purchase of more than 50 properties in the London area investing over GBP25 million. As purchasing the right properties is the most important part of our business I believe that we have reasons for optimism.
