South Africa's Capitec Bank's H1 profit up 20 pct

JOHANNESBURG, Sept 26 (Reuters) - South African lender Capitec Bank reported a 20 percent rise in half-year profit on Tuesday, helped by strong client growth.

Headline earnings per share (EPS) came in at 2,128 cents in six months through the end of August, compared with 1,769 cents a year earlier.

Headline EPS, the widely watched profit measure in South Africa, strips out certain one-off items.
