Vodacom Group reported a 2.1 percent increase in full-year revenue to ZAR 77.3 billion from ZAR 75.7 billion in 2014. Excluding the impact of a 50 percent cut in MTRs in South Africa, group revenue in the year to March increased by 4.8 percent. EBITDA declined by 1.5 percent to ZAR 26.9 billion, hurt by negative forex effects and a one-time charge of ZAR 405 million to write down operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Headline earnings per share decreased by 4.0 percent to ZAR 8.60 from ZAR 8.96 in 2014, and net profit fell 8.5 percent to ZAR 12.5 billion.
