Pay-TV Operator MultiChoice Expects to Deliver Better Profits

MultiChoice, Africa’s biggest pay-TV operator, announced today that it expects to deliver a rise of between 35% (144 ZAR cents) and 40% (164 ZAR cents) of core headline earnings per share (HEPS) for full-year ended 31 March 2020.

HEPS is South Africa’s main profit gauge.

Africa’s biggest pay-TV operator said on Friday that trading profit is expected to be between 10% (R700 00) and 15% (R1.1 billion) higher than the prior year´s R7 billion.

The operator attributed the improved financial performance to management’s focus on cost containment, which allowed the business to offset these challenges and drive a further reduction in losses in the Rest of Africa segment that has been the largest contributor to the improvement in group performance.
