Holcim (Philippines) Inc said its net  profit in 2005 fell 9 per cent to 1.27bn pesos from 1.4bn a year earlier,  owing to weak demand for cement.  
Revenues grew 6.4 per cent to 14.2bn pesos, it said, but no other details  were given.   Holcim (Philippines) is 51 per cent-owned by Cemco Holdings Inc, in which Switzerland’s Holcim Ltd has a sizeable stake.
