Old Mutual Ltd share price down by 1/3 since listing on JSE a mere 9 months ago

Old Mutual Ltd reported a 12% drop in profits for the year ending on 31 December 2018.

The insurer – South Africa’s second largest – will spend R2 billion on buying back stocks to appease shareholders after the share price fell by almost a third since listing on the JSE as a stand-alone Africa-focused entity.

Headline earnings per share dropped to 239.1 cents ($0.1663) from 271.1 cents in 2017.

Operating profit is down 4% to R10 billion.
