Nov 18 (Reuters) - South Africa’s Netcare Ltd reported higher full-year headline earnings per share on Monday compared to last year when its earnings were hit by costs related to exiting its UK operations.
The private hospital firm said headline earnings per share more than tripled to 165.9 cents for the year ended Sept. 30. Adjusted HEPS rose to 171.2 cents, compared to 158.1 cents last year.
Headline EPS is the main profit measure in South Africa and strips out certain one-off items. (Reporting by Tanishaa Nadkar in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
