Accordingly, the company’s earnings per share and headline earnings per share for the interim period ended 31 December 2018 are both expected to be between 109.3 and 100.9 cents, being between 35% and 40% lower compared to earnings per share of 168.2 cents and headline earnings per share of 168.3 cents for the six months ended 31 December 2017.
