In the first nine months of 2012 Dyckerhoff’s cement volumes reached the previous year’s level. The recovery in Russia and the USA almost counterbalanced the declines in the other regions. Concrete as well as sand and gravel volumes continued to lie below the previous year. Group sales leveled those of the previous year. Sales increases in the Eastern Europe and USA divisions counterbalanced the decrease in the Germany / Western Europe division.

Group EBITDA of EUR 232 million remained stable. Thereof, positive one-time effects totaled EUR 5 million as in the previous year. Depreciation and amortization decreased by EUR 3 million, therefore, EBIT went up by EUR 4 million. The result before income taxes also grew by EUR 4 million. In consideration of income taxes, this added up to a result of EUR 74 million.

For fiscal year 2012, Dyckerhoff continues to expect the level of Group sales and results to remain stable compared to 2011.

The complete Interim Report will be released on November 5, 2012 at noon.
