LafargeHolcim - April 2019

The LafargeHolcim subsidiary Cimencam has inaugurated a 0.5Mta cement plant at Nomayos in Cameroon.

Lafarge Malaysia is seeing continued weakness in demand for 2019. Prices have increased somewhat because of higher production costs, but margins remain under pressure as higher costs cannot be fully passed on. 

The Indian LafargeHolcim subsidiary ACC Ltd has delivered 5.6 per cent more cement in the 1Q18 at 7.5Mt and 0.94Mt of ready-mixed concrete were supply, an increase of 19 per cent. The turnover improved by 8.2 per cent to INR38.55bn and EBITDA expanded by 18 per cent to INR5.32bn. The company's pretax profit jumped by 39.1 per cent to INR5.23bn. The net attributable profit was ahead by 38.4 per cent to INR3.46bn (xEUR30.9m).
