Cementos Pacasmayo S.A.A. Announces Consolidated Results for Second Quarter 2019

LIMA, Peru--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Cementos Pacasmayo S.A.A. and subsidiaries (CPAC) (BVL:CPACASC1) (“the Company” or “Pacasmayo”), a leading cement company serving the Peruvian construction industry, announced today its consolidated results for the second quarter (“2Q19”) ended June 30, 2019. These results have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and are stated in nominal Peruvian Soles (S/).

  • Sales volume of cement, concrete and precast increased 11.8% mainly due to higher sales to the public sector, for El Niño reconstruction spending, as well as some infrastructure projects we started serving this quarter.
  • Revenues increased 11.9% primarily due to the increase in sales volume described above, as well as an increase in average cement and concrete prices, which was offset by the decrease in quicklime sales.
  • Net Income of S/ 32.2 million, a 37.0% increase mainly due to higher operating income.
  • Consolidated EBITDA of S/ 94.3 million; an 11.3% increase, primarily due to increased sales
  • Cement EBITDA margin of 29.2%, 1.1 percentage points lower, mainly due to higher-priced clinker used in April due to maintenance in Pacasmayo. EBITDA margin was over 30% for both May and June, and we expect margins to continue this recovery in the following months.
  • Good Corporate Governance Index. Cementos Pacasmayo was included in the Lima Stock Exchange Good Corporate Governance Index (“BVL IBGC”) for tenth consecutive year.
