Vodacom forecasts higher earnings

Johannesburg - Mobile carrier Vodacom Group [JSE:VOD] expects its headline earnings per share for the year ended March 31 to be between 5% and 10% higher than the prior year of 656 cents per share.

The company said in a statement on Wednesday that basic and headline earnings were negatively impacted by an effective tax rate of 36%, mainly due to secondary tax on companies on higher dividends paid and the movement in net deferred tax assets.

Higher depreciation and amortisation from higher capital expenditure, including non-cash capital additions, also had a negative impact.
