“The expected increase in EPS, HEPS and Normalised EPS is primarily due to higher sales volumes and higher ZAR basket prices due to the ZAR weakening further against the USD in 2014 compared to 2013 as well as good cost containment resulting from sustained mining flexibility, operational stability and specific cost reduction strategies,” the company said.
The company hopes to release their results for the year ended 31 December 2014 in early March.
