Buzzi Unicem FY sales to rise 6-7 per cent on Dyckerhoff’s, Mexico ops
Published: 07 February 2007

Buzzi Unicem SpA full-year sales, due to be released Thursday, are seen rising by 6-7 per cent from 2005, thanks to solid results at its Dyckerhoff AG subsidiary, particularly in Eastern Europe, and strength at its operations in Mexico, analysts said, adding that growth in Italy should remain limited. 
 
Sales at the Italian cement group are expected to rise to EUR 3.148bn from the EUR2.951bn it booked a year earlier, according to consensus estimates of 13 brokers polled by First Call. 
 
Buzzi will accompany the sales figure with a breakdown by countries and sectors, and provide an outlook for 2007, while detailed results down to the net profit figure are due next month, analyst said.
