Northam final results June 2018

Sales revenue jumped to R7.6 billion (R6.9 billion) whilst gross profit grew to R823.3 million (R614.0 million). Loss for the year widened to R705.0 million (loss of R635.9 million). In addition, headline loss per share worsened to 200.5 cents per share (loss of 181.9 cents per share).

Given the continuing difficult conditions in the PGM mining industry, and taking into consideration the cash requirements for the development of the group's project pipeline and acquisition of platinum assets, the board has resolved not to declare a dividend for F2018 (2017: RNil cents per share).
