RWS Holdings plc Provides Earnings Guidance for the First Half Year Ended March 31, 2015

RWS Holdings plc provided earnings guidance for the first half year ended March 31, 2015. The board expects group revenues for the first half of fiscal 2015 to be approximately £45.3 million compared to £46.9 million in 2014, a reduction of 3.4%, predominantly as a result of the weakness of the Euro as anticipated. In constant currency terms, revenues in the first half would have been approximately £1.5 million higher. Adjusted profit before tax (before amortization of intangibles and share option costs) is expected to be broadly in line with the board's expectations and in line with the same period in the prior year.
