Property consultancy Savills says 2010 revenues are likely to be flat on 2009, with activity in the UK property market dampened by the election.

The group saw revenues for the year to 31 December dip 1% on a constant currency basis to £560.7m. The group’s reported pre-tax profits moved to £13.5m from a loss of £7.7m last year. It will pay a final dividend of 6p per share, bringing the total for the year to 9p. It also saw an improved cash position, with net cash of £66.3m at the year end, compared to £45.7m in 2008.  

The group, which announced in December that full-year profits would be ahead of expectations, said that improved revenues had been driven by the return of an active London residential market in the second half of the year. The Asia Pacific business was also strong and now makes up almost 40% of revenues.
