Cementos Pacasmayo S.A.A. and subsidiaries (NYSE: CPAC; BVL: CPACASC1) (“the Company” or “Pacasmayo”) a leading cement company serving the Peruvian construction industry, announced today its consolidated results for the third quarter (“3Q20”) and the nine months (“9M20”) ended September 30, 2020. These results have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and are stated in nominal Peruvian Soles (S/).
3Q20 Financial and Operational Highlights:
(All comparisons are to 3Q19, unless otherwise stated)
- Sales volume of cement, concrete and precast increased 14.2%, reaching historical record levels, mainly due to a sharp recovery in sales of cement, mostly of bagged cement to the self-construction segment, as well as some cement for reconstruction-related projects towards the end of the quarter.
- Revenues increased 6.3% primarily due to the increase in the sales volume of cement, partially offset by lower sales of concrete
- Consolidated EBITDA of S/ 120.6 million, an 8.2% increase and the highest level in the Company’s history, mainly due to increased sales volume, as well as sustained savings in expenses.
- Consolidated EBITDA margin of 29.6% a 0.5 percentage point increase.
- Net income of S/ 45.2 million, a 12.4% increase mainly due to increased sales and higher operating income.
- Good Corporate Governance Index. Cementos Pacasmayo was included in the Lima Stock Exchange Good Corporate Governance Index (“BVL IBGC”). We have been part of the index every year since 2009, demonstrating our continued commitment with good corporate governance practices.
9M20 Financial and Operational Highlights:
(All comparisons are to 9M19, unless otherwise stated)
- Sales volume of cement, concrete and precast decreased 15.4% mainly due to the halt in production and commercialization during 2Q20. However, national market share for the last twelve months increased 1.5 percentage points compared to 2019, reaching 24%, one of the highest levels in our history. We expect the positive trend that began during 3Q20 to continue the following months, helping to offset this decrease.
- Revenues decreased 19.4%, primarily due to the halt in commercialization mentioned above.
- Consolidated EBITDA of S/ 187.2 million; a 37.5% decrease, primarily due to the decreased revenues mentioned above, as well as fixed costs derived from the stop in production during 2Q20. The continued recovery should help to partially offset this decrease by the end of the year.
- Consolidated EBITDA margin of 22.8%, 6.6 percentage points lower, mainly due to the decrease in operating income during 2Q20.
- Net income of S/ 10.4 million, an 89.9% decrease mainly due to decreased operating profit during 2Q20, despite the recovery during this quarter.
