Efficient Shares Growth Driver

  • The Efficient Group was restructured into its current three-unit model in 2015, in order to establish a more market-focused structure as opposed to a single-brand, product-focused structure. This was in line with international trends of internal entrepreneurship, aiming to empower business units to function independently and be more responsive to market needs. The focus is to buy entrepreneurial, like-minded entities to expand the group’s value chain.

  • Efficient’s latest financial data, covering the six months ending February 2016, reflect satisfying performance, with revenue growth of 24% and headline earnings per share increasing by 51%, with corresponding improvements in dividends and Efficient share price.

  • Growth was largely attributed to the successful integration of businesses that the company managed to buy in the previous two years, and an increase in assets under management. This was despite a difficult economic environment which impacted many financial services companies.

  • A 41% growth in revenue for the Financial Services division was as a result of expansion of the distribution network. Profitability improved from break-even levels to R4 million, and is forecast to continue improving as a result of the economies of
    scale. Services and Solutions recorded a lower operating profit of R7 million, due to decrease in assets under management through portfolio restructuring. Investments boasted profits of R16 million, compared to R4 million the previous year. Most of the growth was achieved in the high-volume, low-margin asset administration business.
