Stockbroker Numis sees lower first-half revenue

March 29 () – Numis Corporation Plc said on Friday challenging market environment and lower UK equity capital market volumes would hurt its first-half revenue, which would be about 26 percent lower compared with the same period a year earlier. However, the UK-based institutional stockbroker said it had benefitted from several investment banking deals in recent weeks, including capital markets transactions for Just Group and Randall & Quilter, and the merger of Primary Health Properties and MedicX.
