PERFORMANCE
The first half of the year reflected a difficult business environment on the backdrop of increased input prices, a sluggish market as well as production challenges arising from a tight EAPC PLC working capital position. This affected the ability of the company to effectively provide the product sufficiently to all its customers. Consequently, sales revenue declined by 55% over the same period in the prior year leading to an increase of 66% in loss from operating activities. The Company expects to continue reaping from reductions in administrative expenses driven by the ongoing staff rationalization and outsourcing of non – core administrative services.
Finance costs declined by 53% owing to restructuring of financing facilities. The current liabilities exceeded current assets by Kshs 7.3 billion (June 2018 Kshs 6 billion). The board is aggressively pursuing balance sheet restructuring to effectively address the negative working capital. Relevant consultations and approvals to recapitalize the business have been obtained.

FUTURE OUTLOOK
Future market outlook remains positive with the unveiling of the Big Four Agenda by the National Government where affordable housing and manufacturing were among the top priorities. The competitive environment is expected to result in subdued cement prices in the near future. Revenue enhancement and cost optimization will therefore remain key focus objectives as the Company continues to leverage on its brand to weather competitive pressure. Despite the depressed results, the Board remains confident in realization of its turnaround efforts and takes cognizance of Government support in concretizing initiatives in sourcing for working capital. The Company is further reorganizing its
strategy and structure to reengineer the business in order to improve performance, cost rationalization and efficiency.
This is geared towards reduction of the high Finance and Administrative costs and stabilization of the value chain processes in order to enhance efficiency and ultimately the Company's competitive position.
The Board is optimistic that with the implementation of the Company’s medium term plan, the Company will return back to profitability.

Big Four is dead on arrival.The company should have come up with another strategy to grow revenue.

It's a state owned company so it has exemptions.

I am not sure about cement business prospects. Margins are relatively low as there is sort of increasing competition in this industry. And I am not necessarily speaking about local competition, but from imports also

With Bamburi 12.5% shareholding in EAPCC, it should angle for purchase of majority stake.. The EAPCC land assets are sweet!

Surely how can all jobs become redundant? Are they handing over the company to robots?

EAPCC & ARM cite competition (amongst other reasons) for their woes. Who is this new competition that has disrupted the cement industry exposing those that were swimming naked? Simba cement or imports?

The politics. Let EAPCC die as should other firms like it. The land should be TRANSPARENTLY sold off. The equipment is probably scrap but can be auctioned.
