Argentina: Loma Negra’s first-half net profit declined by 68% year-on-year in 2020 to US$14.2m from US$44.4m in the 2019. Sales fell by 30% to US$215m from US$306m. The company said that business was “impacted by the increasing complexities of the Covid-19 pandemic,” but that a strong recovery in bagged cement sales beginning in May 2020 was an indicator of general growth to come in the second half of the year.
