Year ends on a higher note

VM Matériaux reported turnover of ¤161.5 million in Q4 2010, an increase of 5.5% year-on-year (+2.9% like-for-like) in a more favourable market in terms of new housing starts (+3.5% year-on-year for the 12-months ended 31 December 2010).

In Q4, the Materials trading activity maintained the upward trend begun in Q3. Turnover rose by 5.1% (1.5% like-for-like) despite the sale of two DIY stores and closing of three branches.

The turnover of the Concrete division was stable year-on-year in Q4, despite the severe weather conditions experienced in November and December.

The Industrial joinery segment posted a 9.7% increase in turnover during the fourth quarter of 2010.

Thus, the VM Matériaux Group recorded turnover of ¤630.6 million for the full 12 months of 2010, against ¤609.4 million the previous year. By the end of the fiscal year, the Group had restored positive growth at current scope and posted a 3.5% year-on-year increase in turnover (0.6% decrease like-for-like).

VM Matériaux remains confident in its ability to take full advantage of the recovery in its sector, the first signs of which were observed in the final months of 2010.
