Group basic earnings per share grew by 104% from 0.78 cents per share for the half year ended 30 June 2013 to 1.59 cents per share for the half year ended 30 June 2014. This growth in earnings was on the back of increased earnings by Zimbabwe investments which more than offset the decrease in profits from outside Zimbabwe investments. Zimbabwe investments recorded a profit after tax of $2.6 million versus a loss of $0.8 million for the corresponding period last year whilst outside Zimbabwe profit after tax fell by 77% to $0.8 million from $3.6 million for the half year ended 30 June 2013 mainly due to a decrease in fair value gains.
