JOHANNESBURG, Nov 13 (Reuters) - South Africa's Tongaat
Hulett reported a 5 percent rise in half-year profit on
Monday boosted by recovered production after a two-year drought
and income from land sales.
Diluted headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the six
months ended Sept. 30 were 573.8 cents per share compared with
546.7 for the same period the previous years.
HEPS, which strips out one-off items, is the main profit
measure in South Africa.
