Johannesburg - Logistics group Imperial Holdings [JSE:IPL] on Wednesday reported flat first-half headline earnings and said it expects the performance seen in the past six months to continue in the second half of its financial year.

Imperial, which also operates car retail and rental businesses, said headline earnings per share for the six months to the end of December were at 727 cents, compared with 725c the previous year.

Revenue rose 22% to R38.39bn.

Imperial declared an interim dividend of 300 cents per share, up 36% on the comparison period.

Shares in the company are up 8% so far this year, compared with a 6.63% rise in the JSE All Share [JSE:J203] index.
