South African pharmacy chain Clicks Group reported a 11.5% rise in full-year earnings on Thursday helped by stronger second-half turnover growth.

Clicks said its adjusted diluted headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the year ended Aug. 31 totalled 1,044.5 cents, up from 936.6 cents a year earlier.

Including insurance proceeds for damaged stores due to civil unrest, diluted HEPS grew by 1.1%, Clicks said. (Reporting by Nqobile Dludla; editing by Jason Neely)
