SABMiller firm hits $1bn Zim market cap

Oct 05 2012 14:01
Malcom Sharara, Fin24’s correspondent in Zimbabwe
Harare - Zimbabwe’s beverages company Delta Corporation, owned 40% by SABMiller [JSE:SAB], became the first Zimbabwean company to reach $1bn market capitalisation at the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.
 
In Friday trade the company picked up 0.48% to close at 83.5 US cents and take its market capitalisation to $1.004bn, a first for any Zimbabwean company.
 
In its last full-year results Delta Corporation posted a 38% rise in full-year earnings, driven by strong demand for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Delta said basic earnings per share jumped to 6.22c on the back of a 19% increase in beverage volume sales. Lager beer sales reached 1.98 million hectolitres during the year, almost 100% of Delta’s capacity.

Revenue grew 36% to $555m, and profit after tax rose to $75.2m.
 
SABMiller started reporting Delta Corporation's results from April 1 2010.
