In these difficult times we have remained focused on the key elements of our strategy by developing our full service client offering, taking advantage of opportunities to strengthen our core broking teams with new hires and enhancing both our research product portfolio and support infrastructure.

"The industry outlook remains challenging with the continued focus on the spot market limiting visibility. However, despite these headwinds we continue to make good progress and are trading in line with expectations. As previously highlighted we expect to see a slight weighting in performance to the second half of this year, reflecting the delivery profile of our newbuild activities."
