Ed Williams, Managing Director, said:

"Rightmove is where UK home hunters find their next home. The success of our
iPhone, iPad and mobile applications mean that people are now home hunting
wherever they are, not just at home or work. People thinking of selling their
home know it remains a challenging housing market, so they increasingly expect
their estate agent to make sure that their property is advertised as
prominently on Rightmove as possible. Continuing to grow revenue and profits in
the current housing market is the result of the importance of Rightmove to home
hunters and property advertisers alike and a tribute to all the efforts of our
people."

Half Year Statement

Strategic position


Our strategy remains to build on our market position as the UK's leading
property website, to grow organically through our customers investing more in
their presence on Rightmove, and to return the cash we generate to shareholders
promptly.

We have made further substantial progress against all three elements of our
strategy. We have improved the home hunting experience, we have improved the
effectiveness of Rightmove for our advertisers and we have increased the total
cash returned to shareholders.


Financial performance


Revenue increased by 20% to £47.0m compared to the same period last year.

Underlying operating profit* increased by 25% to £33.4m. The strong growth in
operating profits reflects the operational leverage in the Rightmove business
model as well as continued cost consciousness.

Cash generated from operations was £32.3m, up £4.8m on the same period last
year, with cash conversion in excess of 100%.

Underlying earnings per share* rose 35% to 24.8p compared to 18.4p a year ago
driven in the most part by the growth in profits. Diluted earnings per share on
continuing operations rose 24% to 19.7p (2010: 15.9p).


Highlights of operating performance

Aspects of the operating performance for the first six months of 2011 which
stand out are:

  * The general increase in home hunter activity and specifically the very
    rapid increase in the use of mobile devices. Internet site traffic rose,
    with May 2011 being our busiest month ever, and the gap from competitors
    continuing to widen. Mobile usage by June 2011 was accounting for 14% of
    all property searches on Rightmove and peaked at 20% on a single day for
    the first time.
   
  * The substantial increase in spending by our customers on Rightmove, up by
    18%. The increase in spend came from a range of sources including price
    rises. A notable feature was the further growth in spend on additional
    advertising products which are used by our advertisers to promote their
    brand and wider proposition.
   
Most key metrics strengthened in the first six months of 2011 compared to the
first half of 2010:

  * Overall membership up 3% on June 2010 and up 2% since the start of the
    current year to 18,480 offices and developments
   
  * Retention rate among agents in line with the historical average and the
    churn rate among new home advertisers lower than the historical average
   
  * Average revenue per advertiser up 18% at £430 per month (2010: £365)
   
  * Revenue from additional advertising products up 45% at £11.3m (2010: £7.8m)
   
  * Page impressions on Rightmove websites up 23% to 4.8bn (2010: 3.9bn),
    keeping Rightmove firmly in the top 10 UK websites
   
  * Market share up 1% to 83% of all page impressions on the top four UK
    property websites and up from 55% to 59% of all property website page
    impressions in June 2011 as compared to June 2010.
   
Agency

Our number of estate agency and lettings only offices is up by 427 (+3%) since
the start of the year to 15,242.

This has been achieved against a backdrop of limited growth in the total number
of agents following something of a rebound in late 2009 and early 2010.
Retention rates are in line with historical levels (apart from 2008/9) with no
material loss of agents from the most recent review of membership prices.

Almost three quarters of all agents are taking additional products and
spending more than £130 per month on those products. Further progress has been
made with adoption of our "bundled" offering now running to a third of our
smaller independent estate agent and lettings agent customers. All of our
additional advertising products have sold well during the period and have
increased penetration rates, with our display advertising products
demonstrating the fastest rate of growth. Recently signed long-term agreements
with our largest agency advertisers demonstrate a clear long-term intent to
increase their usage of additional advertising products.

New Homes

New homes developers and development numbers are broadly unchanged since the
start of the year (+10) at 2,691, reflecting the understandable caution in the
house building industry. However, with average spend per development up by 13%
to £513 per month compared to a year ago, overall revenue is higher than for
the same period last year.

The increased average spend reflects continued strong demand among developers
for both our established additional advertising products and email campaigns.
We have also made a promising start with our Development Microsite product for
new home developers with initial signs indicating house builders are willing to
spend more on Rightmove display products to attract home hunters to their
dedicated particular area within Rightmove.

Other Businesses

The overseas property market continues to be challenging as a result of
tightening consumer spend and lack of debt financing. Advertiser numbers are
essentially unchanged since the start of the year at 547 (+1). Average spend
per advertiser has fallen from £241 per month a year ago to £207 per month,
reflecting the change in mix from the continued growth in private advertisers
advertising a single property. Overall revenue is up 4% on a year ago,
reflecting some additional revenue from business partnerships and advertising
of non-property services relevant to overseas homes buyers and sellers.

Revenue from our Data Services business is down £0.1m from a year ago at £0.6m,
reflecting the continued challenging mortgage market.

Uncertainties, threats and risks

At a high level the Rightmove business could be vulnerable to three main areas
of uncertainty or risk: the state of the housing market if it leads to a
reduction in the number of potential advertisers, competition, and Rightmove's
ability to capture a high proportion of any increase in property advertising
revenue as the sector recovers.

Uncertainties surrounding the housing market clearly exist and are likely to be
tightly linked to the wider economic environment in the UK. However, we have
some confidence that the strong actions taken by our customers, particularly
with regard to cost reduction, have left them more able to withstand further
challenges.

The competitive environment hasn't changed significantly from six months ago.
Google withdrew from the property advertising market at the start of the year.
Established competitors have increased their level of marketing activity over
the last six months, but the gap between Rightmove and the nearest competitor
has widened, providing further evidence that home hunter habits are
increasingly deeply engrained in Rightmove.

Since April 2009 Rightmove has been growing its property advertising revenue
during a period in which spend in newspapers appears to have continued to fall
after the large declines of 2008. Based on our own reported numbers we believe
that Rightmove is growing much faster than any other form of property
advertising media with meaningful revenues.

Dividend, share buy backs and balance sheet

The Board intends to pay an interim dividend of 7.0p (2010: 5.0p). As part of
the Board's commitment to return cash promptly to shareholders, we have decided
to increase the interim dividend at a faster rate than the increase in the
underlying operating profit* in the half year. The interim dividend will be
paid on 11 November 2011 to members on the register on 14 October 2011.

Cash at the end of the period was £17.9m (2010: £22.9m). The final dividend
paid in June together with £23.4m of share buy backs means that we have
returned the cash generated by the business during the period. 2.3m shares were
bought back during the period at an average price of £10.23 (2010: £6.68).


Current trading and outlook

Rightmove's trading in July has been in line with that during the first half of
the year and our subscription revenue model gives us confidence in achieving
our expected out-turn for the year. We do not believe that flat or modest falls
in house prices would materially affect the outlook, provided that transaction
volumes do not take a sharp downward turn, and expect to make further progress
in 2012.

NOTES

1 General information

Rightmove plc (the Company) is a Company registered in England 
(Company no. 6426485) domiciled in the United Kingdom (UK). The condensed 
consolidated interim financial statements of the Company as at and for the six 
months ended 30 June 2011 comprise the Company and its interest in its subsidiaries
(together referred to as the Group). Its principal business is the operation of
the Rightmove.co.uk website which is the UK's largest property website.

The consolidated financial statements of the Group as at and for the year ended
31 December 2010 are available upon request to the Company Secretary from the
Company's registered office at 4th Floor, 33 Soho Square, London, W1D 3QU or
from the investor relations website at www.rightmove.co.uk/investors.rsp.

Basis of preparation
The condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in
accordance with International Financial Reporting Standard IAS 34 Interim
Financial Reporting and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the UK's
Financial Services Authority. They do not include all of the information
required for full annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction
with the consolidated financial statements of the Group as at and for the year
ended 31 December 2010.

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements were approved by the
Board of directors on 3 August 2011. The half year results for the current and
comparative period are unaudited. The auditor, KPMG Audit Plc, has carried out
a review of the interim financial statements and their report is set out at the
end of this document.

The comparative figures as at and for the year ended 31 December 2010 are
extracted from the Group's statutory accounts for that financial year. Those
accounts have been reported on by the auditor and delivered to the Registrar of
Companies. The report of the auditor was:
(i) unqualified;
(ii) did not include a reference to any matters to which the auditor drew
attention by way of emphasis without qualifying their report; and
(iii) did not contain a statement under Section 498 (2) or (3) of the Companies
Act 2006.

The Group's financial risk management objectives and policies are consistent
with that disclosed in the consolidated financial statements as at and for the
year ended 31 December 2010.

Going concern

Since the repayment of the £25,000,000 term loan in February 2010, the Group
has been debt free and has continued to generate significant cash with cash
balances of £17,902,000 (2010: £22,866,000).

The Group entered into an agreement with Barclays Bank Plc for a £10,000,000
uncommitted money market loan on 15 February 2010. The loan was extended on 
11 February 2011 for a further 12 month period. No amount was drawn down under
this facility in either period.

After making enquiries, the Board of directors have a reasonable expectation
that the Group and the Company have adequate resources and banking facilities
to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Accordingly
the Board of directors continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing
these interim financial statements.

2 Significant accounting policies

The accounting policies applied by the Group in these condensed consolidated
interim financial statements are in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union (Adopted IFRSs) and,
except as described below, are the same as those applied by the Group in its
consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended
31 December 2010.

The following new standards and amendments to standards are mandatory for the
first time for the financial year beginning 1 January 2011:

(i) Amendment to IFRS 1 `First time adoption' - financial instrument
disclosures provides first-time adopters with the same transition provisions as
included in the amendments to IFRS 7, `Financial instruments: Disclosures',
regarding comparative information for the new three-level classification
disclosures. As the Group is not a first time adopter this amendment has had no
impact on the Group's consolidated financial statements.

(ii) Amendment to IAS 24 Related Party Disclosures removes the requirement for
government-related entities to disclose details of all transactions with the
government and other government-related entities. This has had no impact on the
Group's consolidated financial statements.

The same accounting policies are anticipated to be applied for the year ending
31 December 2011.

Judgments and estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Adopted IFRSs
requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect
the application of policies and reported amounts of assets and liabilities,
income and expenses. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on
historical experience and various other factors that are believed to be
reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis of
making judgments about carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not
readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these
estimates.

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the
estimate is revised and in future periods if applicable.

In particular information about significant areas of estimation uncertainty and
critical judgments in applying accounting policies that have the most
significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements is
included in the following notes:

Note 4 Measurement of share-based payments relating to the inputs to the fair
value models and the estimate of the number of shares that will eventually be
issued

Note 7 Measurement of the contingent consideration receivable in relation to
the disposal of the Holiday Lettings segment regarding the estimate of future
profitability

Note 10 Deferred tax assets relating to the rate at which the asset will
reverse and the recoverability of the asset

3 Operating segments

The Group determines and presents operating segments based on the information
that internally is provided to the Managing Director, who is the Group's Chief
Operating Decision Maker.

The Group's reportable segments are as follows:

  * The Agency segment which provides resale and lettings property advertising
    services on www.rightmove.co.uk; and
   
  * The New Homes segment which provides property advertising services to new
    homes developers and Housing Associations on www.rightmove.co.uk.
   

The Other segment which represents activities under the reportable segments
threshold comprises overseas property advertising services on
www.rightmove.co.uk and non-property advertising services which include
business and information services and Automated Valuation Model services.

Management monitors the business segments at a revenue and trade receivables
level separately for the purpose of making decisions about resources to be
allocated and of assessing performance. All revenues in all periods are derived
from third parties and there are no inter-segment revenues.

Operating costs, financial income, financial expenses and income taxes in
relation to the Agency, New Homes and the Other segment are managed on a
centralised basis at a Rightmove Group Limited level and as there are no
internal measures of individual segment profitability relevant disclosures have
been shown under the heading of Central in the table overleaf.

Profit or loss segmental disclosures have been made on a continuing operations
basis. Disclosures in respect of the discontinued Holiday Lettings segment are
shown in Note 7.

4 Share-based payments

Share awards

Since flotation, the Company has awarded share options to executive directors
and other selected employees designed to align the interests of employees with
the long-term success of the business. Following approval by shareholders at
the Annual General Meeting in May 2011, the executive unapproved and approved
share option plans have been replaced by The Rightmove Performance Share Plan
(PSP). The PSP permits awards of nil cost options or contingent shares which
will only vest in the event of prior satisfaction of a performance condition.
All share-based incentives are subject to a service condition.

The IFRS 2 charge for the six months ended 30 June 2011 relating to share-based
incentive plans was £1,171,000 (2010: £989,000).

Share options

An IFRS 2 charge of £778,000 (2010: £785,000) is included in the statement of
comprehensive income, being the amortisation of the value of all share options
granted since 2006. There was no award of executive unapproved share options in
the six months ended 30 June 2011 (2010: 440,919). The executive unapproved
share options on 5 March 2010 were granted at an exercise price of £6.66. The
vesting of 50% of the 2010 award will be dependent on a relative total
shareholder return (TSR) performance condition measured over a three-year
performance period and the vesting of the other 50% of the 2010 award will be
dependent on the satisfaction of an earnings per share (EPS) growth target
measured over a three-year performance period.


NI is being accrued, where applicable, at a rate of 13.8%, which management
expect to be the prevailing rate when the existing share options are exercised,
on the difference between the share price at the period end date and the
average exercise price of the share options. The charge for the six month
period ended 30 June 2011 is £3,290,000 (2010: £1,172,000).


Performance Share Plan

In May 2011 following shareholder approval, a PSP was established. 164,258 PSP
awards were made to executive directors and senior managers on 4 May 2011 (the
Grant date) subject to EPS and TSR performance. Performance will be measured
over three financial years (1 January 2011 - 31 December 2013). The vesting in
March 2014 (Vesting date) of 25% of the 2011 PSP award will be dependent on a
relative TSR performance condition measured over a three-year performance
period and the vesting of the 75% of the 2011 PSP award will be dependent on
the satisfaction of an EPS growth target measured over a three-year performance
period.

The PSP awards have been valued using the Monte Carlo model and the resulting
IFRS 2 charge is being spread evenly over the period between the Grant date and
the Vesting date, being 34 months. The charge for the six months ended 
30 June 2011 is £90,000 (2010: £nil).

NI is being accrued, where applicable, at a rate of 13.8%, which management
expects to be the prevailing rate when the PSP shares are released to the
employees, based on the share price at the reporting date. The charge for the
six month period ended 30 June 2011 is £15,000 (2010: £nil).

Deferred share bonus plan (DSB)

In March 2009 a DSB Plan was established which allows certain executive
directors and senior managers the opportunity to earn a bonus determined as a
percentage of base salary settled in deferred shares. The award of shares under
the plan is contingent on the satisfaction of pre-set internal targets relating
to underlying drivers of long-term revenue growth (the Performance period). The
right to the shares is deferred for two years from the date of the award (the
Vesting period) and potentially forfeitable during that period should the
employee leave employment. The IFRS 2 charge is being spread evenly over the
combined Performance period and Vesting period of the shares, being three
years.

Following the achievement of the 2010 internal performance targets, 118,467 nil
cost option deferred shares were awarded to executive directors and senior
management on 4 March 2011 (the Award date) with the right to the release of
the shares deferred until March 2013.

The IFRS 2 charge for the six months ended 30 June 2011 is £303,000 
(2010: £204,000).


NI is being accrued, where applicable, at a rate of 13.8%, which management
expects to be the prevailing rate when the deferred shares are released to the
employees, based on the share price at the reporting date. The charge for the
six month period ended 30 June 2011 is £194,000 (2010: £43,000).

All existing share-based incentives can be satisfied from shares held in The
Rightmove Employees' Share Trust (EBT) or from shares held in treasury, without
any requirement to issue further shares.

The value of the contingent consideration is dependent on the performance of
the Holiday Lettings segment for the 12 month period from 1 April 2010 to
31 March 2011. The value of the contingent consideration was revised upwards
from £2,917,000 reported as at 30 June 2010 to £5,104,000 as at 
31 December 2010 and has been further revised upwards to £5,338,000 as at 
30 June 2011 based on unaudited results of the Holiday Lettings segment for the 
three months to 31 March 2011. The first £667,000 of contingent consideration will 
be transferred into an Escrow account, in addition to the £1,000,000 of completion
proceeds already held in Escrow. The total estimated future cash consideration
is £6,338,000 of which £1,667,000 has been classified as non-current.

Under the term of the sale agreement the amounts held in Escrow earn interest
at Barclays Bank Plc's current interest rate and become available on the fourth
anniversary of the completion date of the transaction. No discount has been
applied as the account is interest bearing.

Weighted average number of ordinary shares (diluted)

For diluted EPS, the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue is
adjusted to assume conversion of all potentially dilutive shares. The Group's
potential dilutive instruments are in respect of share-based incentives granted
to employees, which will be settled by ordinary shares held by the EBT and
shares held in treasury.

After the period end an interim dividend of 7.0p (2010: 5.0p) per qualifying
ordinary share being £7,306,000 (2010: £5,403,000) was proposed by the Board of
directors.

The 2010 final dividend paid on 10 June 2011 was £9,499,000 
(31 December 2010: £7,586,000) being a difference of £35,000 compared to that 
reported in the 2010 Annual Report which was due to a reduction in the ordinary 
shares entitled to a dividend between 31 December 2010 and the final dividend 
record date of 13 May 2011.

The terms of the EBT provide that dividends payable on the ordinary shares held
by the EBT are waived.

No provision was made for the interim dividend in either period and there are
no income tax consequences.

Subsidiary dividends
Dividends of £300,000 were paid in 2010 by HLHL to minority shareholders. As no
minority interest was recognised in the consolidated statement of financial
position and the Group consolidated 100% of HLHL's results prior to its
disposal, the dividends paid in 2010 were treated as an addition to goodwill.

10 Taxation

The income tax expense is recognised based on management's best estimate of the
weighted average annual income tax rate expected for the full financial year
applied to the profit before tax for the interim period. The Group's
consolidated effective tax rate in respect of continuing operations for the six
months ended 30 June 2011 was 25% (2010: 27%). The difference between the
standard rate and the effective rate at 30 June 2011 is attributable to credits
as a result of the increase in the deferred tax asset arising on share-based
incentives and corporation tax deductions arising on exercise of share options.

The net deferred tax asset of £9,524,000 at 30 June 2011 (2010: £3,771,000) is
in respect of equity settled share-based incentives and depreciation in excess
of capital allowances.

own ordinary shares. The total number of shares bought back in the six months

held in treasury). The market value of the shares held in the EBT at the period
end was £66,801,000 (2010: £42,690,000).

comprises the condensed consolidated interim statement of comprehensive income,
the condensed consolidated interim statement of financial position, the
condensed consolidated interim statement of cash flows, the condensed
consolidated interim statement of changes in shareholders' equity and the
related explanatory notes. We have read the other information contained in the
half year report and considered whether it contains any apparent misstatements
or material inconsistencies with the information in the condensed set of
financial statements.

This report is made solely to the Company in accordance with the terms of our
engagement to assist the Company in meeting the requirements of the Disclosure
and Transparency Rules (the DTR) of the UK's Financial Services Authority (the
UK FSA). Our review has been undertaken so that we might state to the Company
those matters we are required to state to it in this report and for no other
purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume
responsibility to anyone other than the Company for our review work, for this
report, or for the conclusions we have reached.

Directors' responsibilities
The half year report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the
Board of directors. The Board of directors are responsible for preparing the
half year report in accordance with the DTR of the UK FSA.

As disclosed in Note 2, the annual financial statements of the Group are
prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the EU. The condensed
consolidated set of financial statements included in this half year report has
been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 Interim Financial Reporting as adopted
by the EU.

Our responsibility
Our responsibility is to express to the Company a conclusion on the condensed
consolidated set of financial statements in the half year report based on our
review.

Scope of review
We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review
Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410 Review of Interim Financial Information
Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity issued by the Auditing
Practices Board for use in the UK. A review of interim financial information
consists of making enquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial
and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A
review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance
with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and consequently does
not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant
matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an
audit opinion.

Conclusion
Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to
believe that the condensed consolidated set of financial statements in the half
year report for the six months ended 30 June 2011 is not prepared, in all
material respects, in accordance with IAS 34 as adopted by the EU and the DTR
of the UK FSA.
