ICA’s Second-Quarter Profit Rises 9.7% on Prisons, Roads

July 27 (Bloomberg) -- Empresas ICA SAB, Mexico’s largest construction company, said second-quarter net income rose 9.7 percent as revenue was bolstered by prisons and a Mexico City highway project.

The backlog of construction projects fell 0.7 percent over the last 12 months to 41.5 billion pesos.
