African Oxygen Ltd : Afrox final results 31 December 2011

02/24/2012 | 06:31am US/Eastern

Revenue for the final period ended 31 December 2011 was stronger at R5.2 billion (R4.7 billion) and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, amortisation and impairments (EBITDA) improved to R774 million (R606 million). Profit for the period attributable to equity holders of the company soared to R183 million (R94 million), while headline earnings per share climbed by 65% to 91.6cps (55.5cps).

The board declared a final cash dividend of 23cps (2010: 8cps). Together with the interim cash dividend of 22cps (2010: 19cps), a total of 45cps (2010: 27cps) was declared for the year and is covered 2.0 times in headline earnings per share.

Many of the internal factors that restrained growth during 2010 have been resolved, clearing the way for an incremental return to operational and financial strength, barring unforeseen events. Continued low economic growth, which impact on manufacturing and infrastructure spend in South Africa, remains a real concern and as a result our outlook remains cautiously optimistic.
