Since the Group’s Trading Update on 14 April 2021, trading momentum within the business has continued to be strong. Following a 49% increase in Foxtons Q1 sales revenue versus both 2020 and 2019, the sales commission pipeline has continued to grow and is now 65% ahead of last year and 17% up on 1 January 20211. As a result of the strong trading momentum, adjusted operating profit for the first half of the year is expected to be significantly ahead of both 2020 and 2019.
No further trading information will be disclosed during the event.
Budden said: “Foxtons has enormous potential and we are delighted to be able to set out our growth plans. For over 40 years we have operated through the ups and downs of the sales market cycle and emerge from the unprecedented challenges of 2020 a more efficient and capable business. Our customer proposition is unique and the investments we have made in technology and data science capabilities give us competitive advantage and a solid platform for growth.
“2021 has started extremely well with strong trading and the biggest acquisition in our history.
We look out on significant opportunity to grow and have a clear plan to take advantage of it. Foxtons has a history of being a highly profitable business and when I reflect on the actions we have taken together with the opportunity and improving market conditions I am confident we can deliver significant shareholder value in the coming years.”
