Operating profit was ZAR 270.0 million compared with ZAR 235.9 million for the same period last year. Profit before tax was ZAR 213.5 million compared with ZAR 180.3 million for the same period last year.

Profit attributable to Equity holders of Mpact was ZAR 149.5 million or 91.2 cents diluted per share compared with ZAR 126.1 million or 76.5 cents diluted per share for the same period last year. Net cash inflow from operating activities was ZAR 181.8 million compared with net cash out flows from operating activities ZAR 29.7 million for the same period last year. Revenue was 13.2% higher than the comparable prior year period, attributable mainly to higher selling prices and a favourable sales mix. Higher average selling prices only partially offset raw material and distribution cost increases, leading to a decline in gross margin when compared to the same period last year. Underlying operating profit increased by 14.5% to ZAR 270.0 million. The operating profit margin increased to 6.8% from 6.7% in the comparable prior period through improved productivity and fixed cost savings across the Group. ROCE for the period improved to 16.9% from 15.5% as at June 2013. Basic underlying earnings per share improved by 19.2% versus the same period last year, to 91.8 cents per share as a result of the increase in operating profit and unchanged finance costs.
