Newcrest Mining has posted a 2018-19 interim net profit of $US237m ($334m), compared with $US98m previously. CEO Sandeep Biswas says the gold miner is well-placed to capitalise on any acquisition opportunities, but stresses that a deal would have to add value for shareholders. Biswas adds that mining companies should not pursue mergers and acquisitions simply to become larger unless the deal will add value. Newcrest shareholders will receive an interim dividend of $US0.075 per share.
