It says the increases in earnings were primarily due to once-off transactions incurred in 2017.

Coal producer Exxaro said on Tuesday it expected headline earnings per share of between 2,607 and 2,708 cents for the year ended December 31, compared with 502 cents reported in 2017.

It said while the coal business benefited from higher selling prices, the increases in earnings were primarily due to once-off transactions incurred in 2017 relating to the implementation of a black economic empowerment deal.

Exxaro, one of the largest South African-based diversified resources companies, with interests in coal, titanium dioxide, iron ore and energy, will release its reviewed financial results for 2018 on March 14.
