Mrs. Adeife Abiodun-Adeyemi, a 34-year-old Events Planner who won the car, said it came as a pleasant surprise. “I have always used Glo, it is my business hotline, so I usually recharged heavily on the number even before the promo. When I learned that Glo was rewarding its subscribers, I intensified mine recharges. I am happy that my loyalty to Globacom over the years has paid off”, she enthused.

Mr. Temitope Salako, a 38-year-old business centre operator, who won a sewing machine said it was an answer to his prayer as he intends to give the machine to his younger sister who is a fashion designer.

BUA Cement Records Fastest Profit Expansion Among Cement Competitors

Published

Olushola Okunlade Writes

BUA Cement Nigeria Plc has proven to be resilient in the face of macroeconomic headwinds as it recorded the fastest profit expansion among the dominant players in the industry.

The company has been recording double-digit growth in earnings since it was listed on the Nigerian stock exchange in January 2020 to become one of the most capitalised firms in Nigeria.

BUA Cement sustained its excellent performance in 2022, delivering a profit after tax (PAT) expansion of 12.42% year on year (yoy), relatively better performance when compared to Lafarge Africa (+5.10% yoy) and DANGCEM (4.90 % yoy).

In short, BUA Cement continues to outpace its rivals with double-digit growth at the bottom line (profit), it will overtake Dangote Cement as the largest firm by profit in the cement industry.

The cold commissioning of the Sokoto line 4 cement plant earlier in 2022 raised BUA Cement’s total installed capacity to 11.0MMTPA from 8.0MMTP, according to data from the company website.

Looking ahead, the company’s management plans to diversify energy sources by integrating solar energy on a limited scale of up to 10MW in 2023.

Of course, cost management and sales expansion will underpin profit margins this year, and such improvement is expected to deliver higher returns to shareholders in the form of bumper dividends and share appreciation.

It is worth noting that the company and peer rivals benefit from a price hike, which is significantly responsible for the revenue uplift.

However, inflationary pressures and volatility in currency still remains a downside risk to operating cost.

Analysts at Chapel Hill Denham Limited in research note said BUA Cement’s volume is now expected to come in at 7.4mmt, translating to a capacity utilisation of 52.0% based on an installed capacity of 14.0mmt per annum.

The cement maker’s operating profit spiked by 24.46 percent to N129.71 billion in December 2022 from N104.22 billion as of December 2021.

It trades at a price-to-earnings multiple of 33.30 while its shares trade at N92.45 as of March 1, 2022.
