UNAUDITED AFRICAN MEDIA ENTERTAINMENT INTERIM RESULTS
for the six months ended 30 September 2019
African Media Entertainment Limited, a broadcast company listed in the Media and Entertainment sector of
the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, with a radio footprint across central South Africa and the Eastern Cape,
released its results for the six months ended 30 September 2019.
- Revenue down -2% at R131,4 million
- Profit after tax down -142% to -R6,4 million
- EPS down -149% to -82,5 cents
- HEPS down -35% to 109,0 cents
- Dividend: Nil (prior year: 80 cents gross)
The 149% decline in earnings per share from 168,4 cents to -82,5 cents is mainly as a result of the
deconsolidation of Classic FM South Africa (Pty) Ltd from the group and the resultant loss incurred from
the deemed disposal.
The 35% decrease in headline earnings per share from 168,5 cents to 109,0 cents ignores the loss incurred
from the disposal and reflects the tough economic climate.
