South Africa’s Exxaro half-year profit up 8 percent on coal performance

Exxaro

South Africa’s Exxaro Resources Ltd said on Thursday half-year profit rose 8 percent boosted by a strong performance in its core coal business.
Diluted headline earnings per share (HEPS) rose to 953 cents for the six-month period ended 30 June 2018, from 882 cents in the same period last year.

HEPS is the main profit gauge in South Africa and strips out certain one-off items.
Exxaro said net operating profit at its coal segment rose 12 percent to 3.387 billion rand ($234.85 million).

($1 = 14.4221 rand)
