Johannesburg - Tongaat Hulett [JSE:TON] reported a nearly 11% rise in full-year earnings on Monday, boosted by an increase in sugar output and prices and said it expected production to grow further in the next season.

The agri-processing company said diluted headline earnings per share for the year to end-March totalled 819.4 cents from 739.6c a year ago.

The company, which has operations in South Africa, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Swaziland, said total sugar output rose 14% to 1.150 million tonnes.

It said sugar production was expected to increase by between 12% and 25% in the 2012/13 season.

Tongaat Hulett shares have gained 8% so far this year, compared with a 3% rise in Johannesburg’s All Share [JSE:J203] Index.

Tongaat shares rose 2.9% to R112.50 on Monday morning.
