PBDIT (Profit Before Depreciation Interest and Taxes)

PBDIT is a factor of volumes, prices and costs of production. This is calculated by adjusting operating profits, depreciation interest and amortisation. Our objective is to take advantage of our low cost base to achieve the best possible margins across the businesses.

ROCE (Return on Capital Employed)

ROCE (Return on Capital Employed) is calculated on the basis of profit before tax and interest as a ratio of capital employed in business as at the balance sheet date. The objective is to consistently earn returns to ensure that capital is invested efficiently. ROCE is a good indicator of the efficiency of our productive capital.

EPS (Earnings per Share)

EPS is the net profit attributable to equity shareholders. By producing a stream of profits and EPS we will be able to pay a progressive dividend to our shareholders. EPS growth also demonstrates that our capital structure is being managed efficiently.
