Cimsa Cimento has seen a big rise in its 1H13 profits on the back of increased investment and higher sales. Consolidated net profit grew to TRY218m (US$110m) from TRY49m a year earlier.

Operating profit increased to TRY71m, up 13 per cent through June, while revenue increased 18 per cent to TRY469m.

Consolidated net profit in 2Q13 rose almost five-fold TRY193.3m from TRY41.6m a year ago, while 2Q13 revenue increased 5.7 per cent on the year to TRY279m.
