SHOOT: An ex-colleague still hanging on for dear life at that shabby company tells me she has just survived yet another round of restructurings/retrenchments/firings. I wonder when Media24 are going to buy the shiny bits in a garage sale? I've said the company - AVUSA - won't be around in 5 years. Make that 2.
The group said the comparative period's earnings per share included a profit from discontinued operations in respect of Avusa's Nigerian and Kenyan operations of R39m, inclusive of R60m profit on sale of the discontinued operations. The R60m profit on sale was excluded from headline earnings.
