Lafarge S.A. Announces Board Changes

Paul Desmarais Jr., Nassef Sawiris and Philippe Dauman have decided to resign from their board position at Lafarge S.A. following the board meeting of July 28, 2015. The board has accepted their resignation. The board shall henceforth be composed of 15 members.

Lafarge S.A. Announces Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and First Half Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Second Half and Full Year 2015

Lafarge S.A. announced consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and first half ended June 30, 2015. For the second quarter, net loss group share for the second quarter was EUR 381 million compared to EUR 205 million in the same quarter last year. Adjusted net income group share totaled EUR 210 million, while it was EUR 237 million last year, as the effect of lower net financial charges was offset by higher tax provisions. Sales for the quarter grew to EUR 3.540 billion from EUR 3.367 billion last year. EBITDA was EUR 820 million against EUR 812 million a year ago. Current operating income was EUR 608 million against EUR 609 million a year ago. Adjusted earnings per share were EUR 0.73 against EUR 0.82 a year ago. Free cash flow was EUR 14 million against EUR 37 million a year ago. Cash flow from operations before merger costs benefitted from the reduction in cash financial expenses in the second quarter and rose 17% to EUR 355 million. For the first half, consolidated cement sales in the first half decreased 2% to 67.6 million tonnes, while consolidated aggregates sales grew 3.4% to 72.0 million tonnes last year. Net debt stands at EUR 10.3 billion, reflecting the usual seasonality in cash flow and the earlier payment of dividend compared to past practice as part of the completion of the merger. Sales were EUR 6,319 million against EUR 6,000 million a year ago. EBITDA was EUR 1,223 million against EUR 1,155 million a year ago. Current operating income was EUR 813 million against EUR 755 million a year ago. Net loss group share was EUR 477 million against net income of EUR 70 million a year ago. Adjusted net income group share was EUR 182 million against EUR 116 million a year ago. Adjusted earnings per share were EUR 0.63 against EUR 0.40 a year ago. Free cash flow was EUR 155 million against EUR 160 million a year ago. The firm also targets an overall reduction in capex of at least CHF 200 million until year-end. This results in capex of below CHF 1.4 billion for the second half of 2015. The Group expects net proceeds of around CHF 6.0 billion by year-end from divestments. This will be used to reduce debt, supporting a solid financial structure. This will lead to a net debt below CHF 15.0 billion by the end of 2015. The group confirmed its target to generate, at constant scope, EUR 550 million of additional earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization or EBITDA per annum from its cost reduction and innovation measures in 2015. On a stand-alone basis and unconnected to the merger with Holcim, Lafarge would have expected an EBITDA approximately 4% below the low end of the initial guidance of EUR 3.0 billion to EUR 3.2 billion in 2015.
