In terms of new enquiry numbers February is off to a slower start than we would have liked, and is well down on February of the previous year. So far 2018 has been more challenging that we predicted which may be a result of a softening business sale market. We still have hopes of working on building the second half of February, to stimulate more enquiry. We also believe the lower than expected number of enquries for February so far, maybe a result of a time lag from the recent new businesses that have been placed on the market, and the enquiries that come from listing the business for sale.
The positive news is that numbers for February are well up on January so we are far from any cause for concern just yet.
