Revenues increased by 13% to R14.6 million.

Headline earnings per share decreased by 9% to R369 million.

The company declared an interim dividend of 15 cents per share.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed ADvTECH CEO, Roy Douglas.

Our brands are well positioned and managed well… quality education…

Roy Douglas, ADvTECH

Quality education is always going to be expensive… it is a significant investment on the part of parents… it’s heartening to see the sacrifices people make…

Roy Douglas, ADvTECH

Our schools division continues to grow…

Roy Douglas, ADvTECH

Emigration has taken its toll… we hoped it would slow, but it continues to be a reason for departures… 29% [of those who leave say its due to emigrating]…

Roy Douglas, ADvTECH

We see opportunities in South Africa… We’ve seen outstanding growth in our mid-fee schools… We’re equally excited about the opportunities in the rest of the Continent as well.

Roy Douglas, ADvTECH
