Chairman's statement

I am pleased to present Rightmove plc’s results for the year ended 31 December 2016.

Amid the attention devoted to economic and political events on both a local and world stage this past year, we are proud to say that Rightmove has once again delivered a set of outstanding results.


We are not insensitive to the macro-environment, however we continue to be confident in the strength of our business. Our confidence is derived from an in-depth knowledge of the market in which we operate together with the power of our subscription-based business model, which benefits from strong network effects, and a relentless focus on continual improvement for both our customers and consumers.


Our approach has further cemented our position as the UK’s number one property portal with customer numbers reaching a record high of over 20,100 and our unrivalled audience reaching new highs too. We are in an enviable position to fulfil our aim of creating a more transparent and efficient property marketplace and ultimately making home moving easier in the UK.


Our audience, best in class platforms and significant property inventory advantage coupled with our focus on innovation at the core of our business drives our value proposition for the benefit of both our trade customers and consumers. Property data has always been at the core of what we do and we are excited about continuing to harness the power of our data to drive further transparency and efficiency in the property market, predict market opportunities and drive success for our customers and consumers. 


We are still a relatively young organisation, but during our progression over the last 16 years we have remained steadfast in our commitment to serving the housing market and this has consistently delivered strong results. We are committed to continue that focused path in a manner that is appropriate for all of our stakeholders.
