JOHANNESBURG - South African gold miner Harmony today reported a 115 percent improvement in operational profits, increasing from R212,1 million to a record R455,2 million.
Due to the depreciation of 20 percent in the rand, the company earned revenues of R88 491/kg which is 19 percent higher than the R74 164/kg received in the September 2001 quarter.

Net profit after tax at R307,7 million was 229 percent more than the R93,4 million reported for the September quarter. Earnings per share increased by 222 percent from 64 cents for the September 2001 quarter to 206 cents.

The higher net profit resulted in the company raising the interim dividend by 50 percent to 75 cents per share.

"Although the depreciation of the rand has made the company significantly more profitable, now is the time to double our efforts to control working costs," says Bernard Swanepoel, chief executive. "All stakeholders will be aggressively increasing their demands for a larger slice of this windfall profit. Our main focus will be on enhancing the value of the company by increasing the profit margin of the ounces we produce."

"The December 2001 quarter can probably be described as the period in which the future of the company changed significantly, with excellent operational performance and solid progress with corporate activities here and in Australia," commented Swanepoel.
