The company's total revenues witnessed a 8.8 per cent growth for the 12-month period ending December 31, to hit SR1.56 billion compared to SR1.44 billion for the same period the year before, said Saudi Cement in its filing to the kingdom's bourse Tadawul.

The steady growth was mainly due to the increase in sales and other income besides a decline in the general and administrative expenses and financial charges, in spite of the a spurt in the sale and distribution expenses and increase in Zakat provision, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
