S AFRICA: Distell predicts earnings jump

By | 19 January 2007

Distell, South Africa's largest wine and spirits group, has forecast a healthy jump in earnings for the first half of its financial year.

The company, which owns brands including Nederburg wine and Amarula cream liqueur, has advised shareholders that, for the six months to 31 December, earnings per share will be 55-65% higher than last year.

"This is largely attributable to an improvement in trading income and reduced financing costs," Distell said on Tuesday (16 January).

The company intends to publish its interim results on 14 February.
