Naspers said Tuesday that revenue rose in fiscal 2023 as e-commerce performed strongly, but that headline earnings fell on lower profitability.

The South African investor--which owns a stake in Chinese tech giant Tencent Holdings through Prosus--said earnings per share fell to $1.97 in the year ending March 31 from $4.2 in fiscal 2022. Headline earnings per share fell to $1.19 from $5.47, while core headline earnings per share fell to $5.07 from $7.03.

Revenue grew to $6.78 billion from $6.29 billion a year prior due to strong revenue growth in iFood, and Payments and Fintech, Naspers said. Its e-commerce unit continued a strong growth trajectory, with revenue rising 19% to $10.75 billion.

Headline earnings fell by $1.3 billion to $249 million due to lower profitability across the group's associates and increased operating losses from our consolidated businesses, Naspers said.
