Sir Graham Hearne, Chairman of Braemar, said: “Shipping markets are experiencing a period of progressive weakness which has affected the performance of the group in the first half. In the light of this, we are taking measures to reduce costs, the full effect of which will not be felt until next year. These measures, combined with the capability of our non-broking businesses to make a greater overall contribution, give us confidence in the Group’s resilience and we expect an improvement in the second half performance relative to the first half.”
