Zimbabwe’s TM Supermarkets boost South Africa’s Pick n Pay revenue


South African retailer Pick n Pay says its Zimbabwe associate TM Supermarkets performance boosted the group’s half year revenue for its Rest of Africa division which increased by 12.6 percent to R2.3 billion ($1,7 million).

The retailer reported today that profit before tax was up 22.3 percent from R103.7 million ($7.7 million) to R126.8 million ($9.5 million), in part due to a strong performance from TM Supermarkets.

The group’s share of TM’s earnings grew 40.4 percent on last year to R40 million ($3 million).

TM Supermarkets has 56 stores in Zimbabwe, 16 of which trade under the Pick n Pay banner.

 Pick n Pay controls 49 percent of TM, with the remainder held by Meikles.

“The Group’s franchise businesses outside South Africa, together with the Group’s share of profits of TM Supermarkets (its associate in Zimbabwe), continue to make a positive growth contribution. Despite the ongoing challenging trading environment in Zambia, the Group remains positive about its long-term prospects in the region,” the company said.

The group also has operations in Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland.- The Source
