Attock Cement’s net earnings plummet by 53%

July 29, 2019 (MLN): Attock Cement (Pakistan) Limited’s board meeting was held on Monday, wherein the Directors of the company announced a Profit after Tax (PAT) figure of Rs. 2.07 billion, which is nearly half of PAT reported in last year.

The Earnings per share were reported at Rs. 15.09, as compared to Rs. 32.03 reported in last year.

 The net earnings were mainly led down by increase in cost of sales by 37%, as well as Distributions costs by 60%.

On top of that, there was a 158% increase in finance costs, which further dragged down the company’s net profits.

A major drawback during the period under review, was that there were no tax reliefs unlike last year. The company consequently endured income tax expenses of Rs. 330 million.
