Holcim profits fall as construction wanes

WEAKER CONSTRUCTION spending continuing into the second quarter slashed profits of Holcim Philippines, Inc. by more than half from year-ago levels, the cement maker yesterday said, warning that it may no longer meet 2011 targets.

The local arm of Swiss firm Holcim Ltd. said in a filing its profits for April to June fell 54.9% to P622.312 million from the same period last year.

This, as revenues were down 14.7% to P5.504 billion for the period even as the firm already hiked cement prices last month to offset higher input costs.

Holcim attributed this to the lack of election campaign-related spending and cuts in government spending in efforts to curb the national budget.

Government projects usually comprise half of Holcim’s cement demand.

Cost of sales, meanwhile, were flat at P3.770 billion.

The second-quarter performance brought the first half profit tally down to P1.441 billion, a 48.7% drop from year-ago levels.

When asked about yearend targets, Holcim Chief Operating Officer Ronald Van Wijnen expressed doubt the firm would be able to meet its 3% to 5% volume growth goal in the face of lower demand in the year’s first six months.

Despite this, Eduardo A. Sahagun, Holcim senior vice-president and commercial director said: “We are still in good shape as we almost have no debt. We are not significantly exposed to major fluctuations in the foreign market.”

Mr. Van Wijen further said the company is hopeful the anticipated implementation of public-private partnership projects will hike its profits in the second half.

“Our people on the ground have started to see some government projects being approved, and the Public Works department has committed to spend 90% of its budget before the year ends so we are hopeful we will be able to report better performance in the future,” Mr. Van Wijnen said in a press statement.

Stock Pick
Holcim Philippines, Inc. (HLCM)

Recommendation: Wait to buy

REGINA Capital Development Corp. has placed a “wait to buy” tag on Holcim Philippines, Inc. shares amid uncertainties in the market due to the continuing European crisis.

“If you are to buy, you have to wait. Investors have to observe the developments in addressing the European crisis as anything can happen. The market is full of uncertainties,” analyst Claire S. Quiray said.

HLCM shed P0.30 to close at P8.35 apiece last Friday. Ms. Quiray said a good entry-point would be at P8, the stock’s initial support. “If it won’t hold at P8, next would be at P7.10,” she added.

The analyst pegged the stock’s resistance at P9 and price-to-earnings ratio at 21 times.

“At its current premium of 197%, it is more expensive than blue chips though this company is not a blue chip at all. Though expensive, it has always been marketable. It has many followers and people are buying it,” she said. — Trishia P. Octaviano

Mukang malakas open nito ah. Laki ng padding sa bid.
