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.
