Telecoms provider Telkom released its interim results on Tuesday, reporting a 3.3% decline in headline earnings per share (HEPS) largely driven by costs related to the company’s early retirement and voluntary severance packages. Revenue, however, is up 5.2%, boosted by the group’s mobile business unit, where revenue increased close to 54% due to a 50% surge in users . Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko joined Business Day TV to discuss the results.
