- Property management services group HML Holdings expects earnings for the year ended 31 March to be marginally ahead of market forecasts.

It says that trading in the second half of the year was assisted by good progress on acquisition integration and the cross selling of group services.

Chief executive Robert Plumb said: "Organic growth and an attractive acquisitions market have contributed to HML's increased earnings. We are confident that improvements in our operating efficiency, combined with a positive market environment will ensure this growth in earnings is ongoing."
