Cementos Pacasmayo has announced its consolidated results for the fourth quarter and the whole year ended 31 December 2020. These results have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and are stated in nominal Peruvian Soles.
(All comparisons are to 4Q19, unless otherwise stated)
- Sales volume of cement, concrete and precast increased 37.2%, reaching historical record levels, mainly due to the continued increase in sales of bagged cement, to the self-construction segment and to the public sector for reconstruction related projects.
- Revenues increased 27.1% primarily due to the increase in sales volume of cement, partially offset by lower sales of concrete and lower average price of cement, mainly due to sales mix, as the company sold more of its lower-priced products.
- Consolidated EBITDA of S/ 128.1 million, a 27% increase compared to the same period in 2019, and a 6.2% increase quarter-on-quarter, beating the historical record reached during the previous quarter. This increase was mainly due to increased sales volume, as well as sustained savings in expenses.
- Consolidated EBITDA margin of 27.0% in line with 4Q19.
- Net income of S/ 47.5 million, a 61.0% increase mainly due to increased sales and higher operating income.

- Revenues decreased 6.9%, primarily due to the halt in commercialisation mentioned above.

- Consolidated EBITDA margin of 24.3%, 4.4 percentage points lower, mainly due to the decrease in sales volume of cement during 2Q20.
- Net income of S/ 57.9 million, a 56.1% decrease mainly due to decreased operating profit during 2Q20, despite the recovery during the second half of the year.
