PROFIT WARNING

30 November 2018

 

This announcement is made by Bamburi Cement Limited (the “Company”, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) pursuant to Regulation G.05(1)(f) and (2) of the Capital Markets (Securities) (Public Offers, Listing and Disclosures) Regulations, 2002.

 

While the final 2018 financial results will be announced in the first quarter of 2019, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company wishes to inform the shareholders of the Company and potential investors that, based on the preliminary assessment on the unaudited consolidated management accounts, the 2018 full year earnings of the Group are  expected  to  decrease  by  more  than  25%  compared  with  the  year  ended  31 December 2017.

 

The expected decrease is mainly attributable to:

 

1.     Difficult market conditions, as well as escalating international energy prices in both Kenya and Uganda;
2.     Increasing power costs in Kenya;
3.     Additional provisions, mainly receivables, in Uganda.

 

This announcement is based solely on the Company’s preliminary assessment of the Group’s expected financial results for the year 2018.
