- 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.

Looking good. Savills has delivered a great first half performance across the Group driven, in particular, by strong growth in Asia and a resilient performance in the UK. In line with our overall growth strategy, we have continued to build on the Savills Studley platform in the US, particularly our Capital Markets business, with recruitment and incremental acquisition activity across the country. In addition, we have continued to invest in our Asian platform and, since the period end, in Europe we have announced the acquisitions of Larry Smith and Aguirre Newman, further strengthening our positions in Italy and Spain respectively. Continued growth in our less transactional businesses, significant overseas earnings and strong market shares in many of our most important transactional locations position the Group to withstand short term reductions in local activity and to capitalise on the opportunities which we expect to emerge. 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

In today's Annual General Meeting statement from Savills, the Company said that during the year it has traded in line with expectations and ahead of the corresponding period in 2016. "In the UK commercial markets, Savills has maintained a significant share of the Prime Central London investment and leasing markets, although market uncertainty continues to affect transactional volumes," Savills said. "Outside London, our transactional volumes and Professional and Development services have grown over the comparable period in 2016. "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. "Savills Asia Pacific business has had a very strong start to the year. We have seen substantial underlying revenue and profit growth in the year to date, with Hong Kong, Australia and Japan all ahead of our expectations; in addition, our reported results continue to benefit from the effect of Sterling weakness. "In the US, Savills Studley has had a slower start to the year than initially anticipated with some occupier transaction deferrals. However, the pipeline of activity for the remainder of the year remains good. In addition we have continued to expand our footprint with acquisitions and significant recruitment in Southern California, Denver, Colorado and a Capital Markets team in New York. "In Continental Europe, to date we have traded in line with our expectations, with France, the Netherlands, Spain and Italy experiencing a particularly strong start to the year. "Globally, our Consultancy and Property Management businesses have delivered continued revenue growth with particular strengths in the UK and Asia. "Following a strong year in 2016, Savills Investment Management has grown revenue and profits as anticipated for the period to date as we near the end of the disposal of assets within the liquidating German Open Ended Funds under the SEB brand. "While we have 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."

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."

Property prices have been falling for 18 months in London.Europe is in a state of collapse and we are 2 years into a 17 year cyclical downward property trend.The business will need to be 'solid' as the property crash 'global' starts to unravel here.

Very positive. Sign of an extremely well managed company with a truly global marketplace.

Surprisingly strong performance. But still rightly cautious for coming year. The Group experienced a strong finish to the year with the completion of significant volumes of commercial and residential transactions in a number of our businesses around the world and benefited from further sterling devaluation. Accordingly, the Group now anticipates that underlying results for the year to 31 December 2016 will be meaningfully ahead of our previous expectations

Funny, chart looks as though it's going uphill to me. Maybe this helped: Queensberry appoints Savills to market Friars Walk mall at reduced price 16 September 2016 Queensberry has appointed new agents to market the Friars Walk shopping centre in Newport, Wales, at a lower price. I shall hold on anyway.

Downhill all,the way.Major markets have crashed in New York, Chicago and Florida.Sweden's real estate has imploded over the last 3 moths and London has been in a downward spiral for the last 15 months.This is going to get a hell of a lot worse here, and do not expect this to get any better as the global recession that is about to engulf us all.......?As I've said its downhill all the way here.....

* Estate agent Savills up c.5 pct & 3rd top FTSE midcap gainer <.FTMC> as Citi raises rating to "buy" from "neutral" * Brokerage flags co trading at c.20 pct discount to long term historic avg share price & limited exposure to the UK makes it attractive * Co gets only about 1/3 of its rev from the UK as it has been increasingly diversifying and now has reduced exposure to the UK deals advisory market, Citi says
