Johannesburg - Shares of Adcock Ingram fall over 2 percent after South Africa's second-biggest drugmaker posts first-half headline loss of 39 million rand, hit by rising raw materials prices and costs related to a failed $1.2 billion takeover bid from a Chilean suitor.

As of 13:30 SA time, its shares are down 2.10 percent to 58.00 rand, outpacing a decline in the All-share index which is 0.19 percent lower. - Reuters
