Revenue was up 56.1% to R1.1bn as a result of growth in both the consumer goods division and the infrastructure division.

Ebitda rose by 88% to R198.2m‚ with an improved Ebitda margin of 17.6% from 14.6% in October 2011. No interim dividend was declared.

Looking ahead‚ the company said it remained prepared for the commencement of the Digital Terrestrial Television (DDT) roll out in South Africa and‚ together with its strategic partners‚ were positioned to benefit from the roll-out. Ellies said it had begun exporting aerials and DTT dishes to other African countries and with the continued weakening of the rand more export activity will be seen by the group.
