German cement maker HeidelbergCement AG said Thursday its key results for the first quarter 2006 significantly exceed previous year’s figures.
The improved figures can be explained amongt others with favorable market conditions in North America, an optimized cost level following first results of the implementation of the "win" project and positive growth in many markets. We therefore expect a significant increase in turnover and results for the entire year.
The interim report for the first quarter 2006 will be released on May. 4, 2006.
