Print this page

Saudi Arabia: Southern Province Cement’s sales fell by 16.5% year-on-year to US$237m in 2018 from US$283m in 2017. Its net profit after Zakat and tax nearly halved to US$52m from US$98.7m. The company blamed the fall in sales and profit on lowering prices, despite higher sales volumes.

The cement producer has also announced renewal of its export licence from the Ministry of Trade and Investment. It will export up to 1Mt of clinker and 0.5Mt of cement for a year from 13 February 2019.
