South Africa: PPC has reported a 93% decline in full-year earnings due to a liquidity crisis precipitated by the cut in its credit rating to junk status during the first quarter of 2017. PPC, which is still negotiating a possible merger with rival Afrisam, said that headline earnings per share fell to just US$0.005 from US$0.083 in the comparable period of 2016.
