Preliminary Group sales in the fiscal year 2012 amounted to EUR 1.6 billion. Volumes fell in all countries, with the exception of cement in Russia and the USA, ready-mix concrete in Ukraine, and sand and gravel in Germany. Cement prices were higher than the previous year in Germany, Ukraine, Russia and the USA, fairly stable in the Czech Republic and on a downward trend in Luxembourg and Poland. In total, sales decreased in the Germany/Western Europe division, while they increased in the Eastern Europe and USA divisions. The proportion generated abroad of 63% exceeded the previous year by one percentage point.

For fiscal year 2012 Dyckerhoff’s management board expects that EBITDA for the fiscal year 2012 will be at a similar level to the previous year. However, EBIT and results before and after taxes will be below the previous year’s level, due to write-downs.

The complete interim report will be released on February 4, 2013 at noon.
