Thailand: Siam Cement Group’s Building Materials division’s sales fell by 2% year-on-year to US$1.29bn in the first quarter of 2017 due to lower prices and falling volumes in the local market. The group reported that domestic cement demand fell by 7% in the quarter due to flooding in the south of the country. Earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortisation (EBTIDA) for the division were also negatively affected by the weather falling by 10% to US$181m. Overall the group’s sales and EBITDA rose due to earnings from its Chemical division.
