- Glenveagh Properties reduced its half-yearly losses amid a surge in revenue as the Irish homebuilder ramped up home sales at higher prices. For the period ended 30 June 2019, pre-tax losses narrowed to €3.75m from €8.17m a year earlier and revenue rose to €45.5m from €1.3m. The company sold 158 homes, up markedly from the six sold last year, driven by starter-home developments at an average selling price of €287,000, up from €199,000 a year earlier. 'The company is well-positioned to deliver a successful outcome for the year and the Board remains confident that results will be in line with its expectations,' Glenveagh Properties said.
