Financial Overview

In 2012, revenue from continuing operations increased to R956 million and profit before tax increased by 11% to R301,5 million, resulting in earnings per share of 139,2 cents (compared to 118,3 cents in 2011).

The broadcasting division was the strongest performer, celebrating the best year in its history, in revenue terms. In line with the diversification strategy, the division’s contribution to revenue decreased from 61,5% in 2011 to 60% in 2012.

The disposal of LexisNexis and the subsequent acquisition of Juta and Company in 2012 means that Kagiso Media now owns one of the largest professional information businesses in Africa. This significantly enhances our potential to grow our share of the content/information market in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.

New Media
Within this division, both Gloo Digital Design and Kagiso. MSN are positioning their business units for aggressive growth. The relationship with Microsoft has been strengthened further and is set to unlock additional opportunities in Africa.

This division increased its revenue by 11,5% compared to the previous year. While we once again experienced reduced revenue from the SABC, revenue resulting from the Urban Brew Studios (UBS) partnership with community television entities went some way toward offsetting this reduction. UBS is well positioned to meet the new requirements for content that will develop with the launch of digital terrestrial television.
