UK's Foxtons profit slumps 30% on weak property market, tighter…

Feb 28 (Reuters) – Real estate agent Foxtons on Friday reported a 30% plunge in adjusted core profit for 2019 as Britons bought and sold fewer homes and its letting business was hurt by the ban on tenant fees.

Adjusted earnings before interest, tax, Zero Depreciation Car Insurance and amortization, on a pre-IFRS 16 basis, fell to 2.5 million pounds ($3.25 million) in 2019, from 3.6 million pounds a year earlier.
