Dyckerhoff AG’s preliminary Group sales rose by 13% to €1.6 billion in fiscal year 2011, slightly exceeding expectations.
Mild weather conditions in Germany and neighbouring countries contributed to the result, alongside the fact that a strong winter was missing in Ukraine and Russia until mid-December.
Cement and concrete volumes increased 15% and 19%, respectively. Cement prices increased in Poland, Ukraine and Russia, while they decreased in the remaining countries. The sales proportion generated abroad fell by one percentage point to 62%.
Wolfgang Bauer, CEO of Dyckerhoff AG, said: “The results of the Dyckerhoff Group will increase significantly in the 2011 fiscal year compared to the previous year.” He continued: “For the year 2012 we await a stable level of sales and results compared to 2011”.
