Losses mount at ARM Cement in 2017
Kenya: ARM Cement’s net loss more than doubled to US$55m in 2017 due to poor demand in Kenya and Tanzania. Its sales fell by 32% year-on-year to US$85m from US$127m. Elections in Kenya reduced cement demand, a coal import ban in Tanzania caused production issues at its Tanga cement plant and both countries saw increased competition. “2017 was the most challenging for the group since the company’s listing on the Nairobi Securities Exchange in 1997. Whilst the management has navigated many business difficulties well in the past, raised capital for expansion, increased net profits and market capitalisation continuously over a 14 year period up to 2015, the challenges of the past year have been unprecedented,” the company said in a statement. The cement producer says it is undergoing a ‘significant’ review of its current operations, asset base and financing structure to address its problems. It has also been cutting staff benefits as part of its plan to save money. UK-government investor CDC Group, which holds a 41% stake in the company, has also replaced its board members Ketso Gordhan and Pepe Meijer with Sofia Bianchi and Rohit Anand. /GlobalCement
