Following a warning from the British homebuilder Persimmon (PSN) about a decline in the number of new homes supplied in the first half of the year, the company’s shares fell on Thursday.
Six thousand six hundred fifty-two new residences will be finished over the year, according to the firm, which is slightly below expectations and a fall of more than 10% from 2021.
This fall, according to Persimmon, was caused by scheduling missteps and a personnel and material shortfall. Persimmon added that this will also result in a lower operating margin.
Revenues for the entire half-year are expected to decline by more than 8%.
However, the company claimed that despite recent increases in home prices, pressures from rising energy prices and supply shortages will still be partially countered, resulting in results that are slightly above projections. Persimmon anticipates continued robust demand for new homes in the United Kingdom.
