Accordingly, shareholders are advised that Life Healthcare´s earnings per share for the six months ending 31 March 2015 are expected to show a decrease of between 65 and 100 cents per share or between 37.2% and 57.2% from that reported for the six months ended 31 March 2014 (174.8 cents per share). This expected decrease is largely due to Life Healthcare´s disinvestment of its 49.3% shareholding in Joint Medical Holdings Limited in the prior year. The forecast financial information on which this trading statement is based has not been reviewed and reported on by the Company´s external auditors.
