PT Semen Indonesia - May 2016
Semen Indonesia has reported a five per cent YoY fall in revenue in the first three months of 2016 to IDR6021bn, due to a combination of lower volume and price. Over the same period, EBITDA declined by nine per cent to IDR1683bn, which was blamed on slow demand and increased competition. Pretax profit, meanwhile, contracted by 17.2 per cent to IDR1243bn. Total cement sales for the quarter, including Vietnam, came in at 6.43Mt, down 1.3 per cent YoY. Domestic sales accounted for 5.93Mt, representing a fall of 2.8 per cent compared to 1Q15. According to the company, the first quarter has always been the lowest quarter due to the rainy season which makes transporting cement difficult.
