Saudi Cement profits up 11.5% in Q1-20

The rise in net profit is attributed to an increase in sales

  

Riyadh – Mubasher: Saudi Cement Company reported an increase in net profits during the first quarter (Q1) of the year by 11.48% to SAR 147.6 million, compared with SAR 132.4 million for Q1-19, the firm’s interim financial results showed.
