Savills issued a solid trading update this morning. The Group has continued to trade strongly since June, particularly in the UK and Asia Pacific regions where outperformance is expected. The Group has also benefited from a continuation of lower than normal levels of discretionary expenditure which is expected to continue through the remainder of the year. The Group is likely to achieve “overall profits materially ahead of 2019 for the current year, before a resumption of more normalised trading and cost dynamics in 2022.” Share price is pushing up to record highs.

An initial interim dividend of 4.8p per share (2017: 4.65p) amounting to GBP6.6m was paid on 3 October 2018, and a final ordinary dividend of 10.8p (2017: 10.45p) is recommended, making the ordinary dividend 15.6p for the year (2017: 15.1p). In addition, a supplemental interim dividend of 15.6p (2017: 15.1p) is declared, based upon the underlying performance of our Transaction Advisory business. Taken together, the ordinary and supplemental interim dividends comprise an aggregate distribution for the year of 31.2p per share, representing an increase of 3% on the 2017 aggregate dividend of 30.2p. The final ordinary dividend of 10.8p per ordinary share will, subject to shareholders' approval at the AGM on 8 May 2019, be paid alongside the supplemental interim dividend of 15.6p per share on 13 May 2019 to shareholders on the register at 12 April 2019.

Anybody received the supplementary divi?

- Savills, the international real estate adviser, increased its underlying profit by 3.5% to £140.5m in 2017.

Revenues rose by 11% to £1.6bn.

The group's statutory profit before tax increased by 13% to £112.4m.

The total dividend for the year has been increased by 4% to 30.2p per share.

Transaction Advisory revenue grew by 13%, Consultancy business revenue by 14% and Property Management revenue by 9%, including the full year effect of the 2016 UK acquisition of GBR Phoenix Beard.

Savills' Commercial Transaction business grew revenue by 15% with strong performances in many markets including the UK and significant growth in the Asia Pacific region, in particular, Hong Kong, China, Japan and Australia.

The Residential businesses withstood challenging conditions achieving revenue growth of over 6%.

Savills Investment Management assets under management increased to £14.6bn from £13.9bn. Investment Management revenue declined, reflecting the reduced level of disposal transactions from the liquidating SEB German Open Ended Funds Savills inherited as part of the acquisition of SEB Asset Management in 2015.

The reduction in transaction fees in the Investment Management business, together with a decline in the volume of larger complex transactions in the US and the costs of expansion in a number of markets, restricted the underlying profit margin to 8.8% (2016: 9.4%).

The statutory pre-tax profit margin remained stable at 7.0% (2016: 6.9%), with lower acquisition-related costs and profits on disposal of investments offsetting the expansion costs and decline in the US business.

Jeremy Helsby, group chief executive, said: "Savills has delivered another strong performance in 2017. Revenue and profits grew in each of our global Transaction Advisory, Consultancy and Property Management businesses despite challenging conditions in a number of markets. The strength of our business in key transactional markets across the globe, including a highly resilient performance in our UK residential business, were key to this result.

"Throughout the year we maintained our focus on delivering exceptional service to our clients and continued to build on our global network through complementary acquisitions and new team hires.

"We have made a solid start to 2018 with a pipeline of business carried over from last year in many markets, although this is against the backdrop of heightened market uncertainty, geopolitical risks and rising interest rates. We anticipate a tempering of the strong transaction volumes of recent times in some markets; however, at this early stage in the year our expectations for 2018 remain unchanged."

- Savills' group revenue grew by 7% at constant currency to £714.4m in the first half of the year, with underlying profit up 5% to £48.1m.

Transaction advisory revenue was up 15%, reflecting strong performances in Asia, Europe and the UK commercial market, which offset a slight decline in UK residential revenue.

Property management revenue rose 13% and consultancy revenue increased by 15%.

At Savills Investment Management, revenue rose by 22%.

Jeremy Helsby, group chief executive of Savills, said: "In an environment of ongoing political and economic uncertainty, we continue to anticipate that our performance for the full year will be in line with the board's expectations."

Currency had a positive impact on reported group performance increasing revenue by £47.2m and underlying profit by £3.1m.

Statutory profit before tax, including deferred consideration provisions and acquisition and restructuring costs was £32.4m, 27% higher than the first half of 2016.

Savills made incremental acquisitions and team hires for the Savills Studley platform in the US, including the acquisition of Cresa Partners Orange County (California).

It also recruited a significant capital markets team in New York, the costs of which affected US profits in the period.

In the UK, it acquired a commercial real estate service provider in Guernsey and in Europe it invested in a new start-up in the Czech Republic. These expenditures caused the group's underlying profit margin to fall to 6.7% from 6.9% the year before.

Savills increased the interim dividend by 6% to 4.65p per share.

Happy enough with this.

Savills has lifted its FY pretax profit by 1%, revenue by 13% and total dividend by 12% in what it described as a another record performance against a backcloth of geopolitical distractions in some markets.

Pretax proft was £99.,8m, from £98.6m, with revenue coming in at £1.445bn, from £1.283bn. Total dividend was up 12% to 29p a share, from 26p.

CEO Jeremy Helsby said overall Savills had delivered another record performance in 2016 despite the geopolitical distractions in some of its markets.

"We benefited from the scale of our operations across the globe, which have grown substantially over recent years, as well as a highly resilient performance in the UK," said Helsby.

"Our less transactional businesses, particularly Property Management and Investment Management grew strongly while our global Transaction Advisory business produced a solid performance despite variable conditions in many markets," he added.

Savills had entered 2017 with a continuation of global macro-economic concerns, rising bond yields, uncertainty over the impact of Brexit negotiations in the UK and Continental Europe and a new administration in the US.

"We have started the year well and our expectations for the full year remain unchanged."

- Savills has booked an H1 pretax profit of £26.4m, from £24.7m. Revenue was £547.0m, from £430.8m. Interim dividend was up 7% to 4p a share. "The Board remains confident in its expectations for the full year," it said.

CEO Jeremy Helsby said:

"Savills has delivered a strong first half performance as a result of the contribution from Savills Studley in the US and the strength of our existing businesses in key transactional markets of the UK and Asia.

"Our performance in these markets mitigated the effect of the pre-election slowdown in the UK Residential market, where, lately, we have seen activity levels starting to improve.

"In line with our US growth strategy, we have continued to build on the Savills Studley platform in the US with three bolt-on acquisitions and recruitment across the country.

"In addition we have bolstered our rural business in the UK through the acquisition of Smiths Gore and look forward to the near term completion of the acquisition of SEB Asset Management AG.

"Looking to the second half, we currently see no significant change in the overall outlook for our business. Our core markets continue to be highly demand-driven as a result of the continued substantial capital allocation to real estate around the world.

"Furthermore, in many markets we are now seeing rental growth and increased occupier confidence. Savills is well placed to act on the opportunities arising from occupier and investor demand globally."

werty5, Jockthescot & long-term SVS holders,

I have been wondering if SVS has further to climb after its strong
run over the
past few years. Can it climb beyond it previous highs before market
pressures return?

Using the IC recommendation, I asked the generous posters on the
ZULU the question below:

Does SAVILLS meet the criteria to be a ZULU stock?
SVS Opinions and comments please. TIA c2i.

These are the replies that I got:

simon42 26 Aug'14 - 19:47 - 790 of 801 0 0

I don't think Savills does qualify for the following reason, Jim
Slater doesn't like cyclical stocks and quotes the property sector
as an example.
I suspect he may have changed his mind since the first edition Zulu
book but that viewpoint did stand.
However, he does buy miners etc... which are cyclical and his son's
fund that has Zulu principles (flexible guidelines) does buy house


mrx9000 26 Aug'14 - 19:50 - 791 of 801 0 0

Contrarian: SVS... in regard being a zulu... SVS is in an area I am
familiar with...

- Mkt Cap of £871m, generally this would be regarded as being
to big a mkt cap to be a considered a zulu.
- It doesn't really have something new? Business model is
replicated time and time again
- Dividend Yield has been reducing over last few years, now only
1.6%, however still paying one.
- Directors cashing in big time on variou sales.

Plus Points
- 4 Years EPS growth, plus 2 yrs forcast on top of this.
- A lot of cash, no debt.
- Zulu PEG of 0.74

Certainly I can think of far worse companies, however you have to
ask yourself is what do you think will happen to the housing market
when rate rises start to kick in.

Margins used to be high back in the day, however they dropped and
have gradually climbed back to half of what they used to (14% to
7.5%). My opinion is this 7.5% margin will be under pressure from
competitors and the climate it is operating at present.

Alas not for me, but thanks for pointing it out.

On -'s screens SVS is a big hitter.

SVS qualifies forJames O'Shaugnessy Cornerstone Grow… (in
Growth Investing).
SVS qualifies for The Screen of Screens (in Quality Investing).

SVS qualifies for Naked Trader-esque Screen (in Growth
SVS qualifies for Value Momentum Screen (in Momentum
SVS qualifies for Cash Accruals Screen (in Quality Investing).
SVS qualifies for Growth at a Reasonable Price Screen (in Growth
SVS qualifies for Jim Slater ZULU Principle Screen (in Growth
SVS qualifies for Richard Beddard's Nifty Thrifty Scr… (in
Value Investing).

These screens are generally simplified and not necessarily accurate
representations of the original screens (e.g the zulu screen throws
up some unlikely candidates).

However SVS has decent metrics overall. Forward PEG is 0.81,
forward divi is 3.87%. It is cyclical and it is exposed to the
supply of credit and interest rates. It took a hit in the 2008
crash but has recovered. 675p was the cycle high last time.

SVS were my first bagger having bought in 2003. I took a job there
as a developer in Moorgate and wrote their UK residential property
search, integrating their CRM system with their web site. My boss
was a tetchy woman with no experience of technology who seemed to
have been given the position through contacts in the firm. She was
so rich her horse, when it died, was buried in her garden. Her
partner was a classic car dealer to the Maharajahs. (I left after a
year mostly because of her personality, and the complete lack of
oxygen in the offices: the air con did not work and the windows
were sealed shut). Even she baulked at some of the types who worked
at Savills. But the toffs are necessary to sell to big money
(probably). The big commercial deals (e.g. new Sainsbury's head
office) came through by serious contacts. Like structured property
finance in investment banking.

I guess because of my time there I won't ever invest but I can see
why people do - it keeps making money. "The richer are getting
richer every day, and the little that the poor man got it shall be
taken away" - Junior Byles "Rockers" Sound track.

Savills used to charge 2.5% on a residential property sale - a
fairly fat margin

Sorry wrong board for last post!

Re: SVS - continue to think risk of interest rate rises is
overblown, salary inflation remains depressed, while with the
election coming up the political parties won't want to upset the
housing market too much by being overly hawkish.

A buoyant UK property market and recovering European demand helped international real-estate adviser Savills
(SVS) grow operating profit by 16 per cent to about £22m last half. Investors responded by bidding its shares up 4 per cent.
Savills continues to benefit from global interest in property as a safe and profitable investment - even from sovereign wealth funds that have "never owned a brick", says chief executive Jeremy Helsby. That trend helped it lift both sales and underlying pre-tax profits at its key transaction advisory division by 12 per cent and profit at its consultancy business by a third to £8.4m.
The group grew underlying profits in the UK, US and even in continental Europe, as property markets improved even in once crash-blighted markets like Spain and Ireland. However, its profits from the Pacific rim slumped by nearly a fifth, reflecting the recent introduction of punishingly high tax rates in Hong Kong and Singapore. Savills's global presence helps insulate it from any weakness in individual markets, but the strategy isn't just to pin "flags on maps", stresses Mr Helsby. Instead it wants to dominate - which explains why it recently acquired US occupier services firm Studley, the market leader in New York and Washington.
Savills's strong US showing and resilience in Asia prompted broker Numis to raise its pre-tax profit and EPS forecasts by 5 per cent to £90.1m and 51.3p - up from £75.2m and 43.1p last year.

Savills is a well run company, with strong positions in a nice mixture of markets and cash on the balance sheet. Its core UK businesses are also recovering nicely. But its shares trade on just 12 times forecast earnings - a discount to the historical rating. We upgrade to buy.

Savills H1 pretax profit rises 15%

Savills recorded an H1 pretax profit of 24.7m, up 15% from £21.4m a year earlier. Revenue was up 8% to £430.8m, from £399.0m. It proposed an interim dividend hike of 7% to 3.75p a share, from 3.5p.

CEO Jeremy Helsby said Savills delivered a strong first half performance slightly ahead of the company's expectations.

This, he said, was the "result of our strength in key transactional markets in the UK, recovery in Continental Europe and the resilience of the Asia Pacific business where the stable foundation of property management represents over 60% of revenue.

"In addition, we have made a substantial investment in the business through our acquisition of Studley in the US.

"Looking to the second half, we currently see no significant change in the overall outlook for our business and the Board remains confident in its expectations for the full year.

"Many markets continue to be highly demand-driven as a result of the continued substantial capital allocated to real estate around the world and Savills is well placed to act on the opportunities that emerge." Highlights:

· Transaction Advisory revenue growth of 12% as strong UK and European performances

offset continued weak volumes in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Singapore

· Consultancy revenue up 14% with profit up 33% over H1 2013

· Revenue in the UK improved by 15% with profits up 24%

· Revenue in Continental Europe improved by 18% delivering an underlying profit before tax

of £0.1m (H1 2013: £2.6m loss)

· Cordea Savills Investment Management revenue up 12% with significant fund commitments

and Assets under Management increased 43% to ��6.3bn (H1 2013: ��4.4bn)

· Studley acquisition in the US completed on 30 May 2014. The business is performing as

anticipated and the integration programme is progressing well
