Increased turnover and net result

The Lafarge Group closed the year 2010 with positive figures. The company recorded a plus of 2 % as regards the turnover thanks to increasing volumes and new capacities, e.g. in Brazil. The operating result slightly dropped by 1 %, in particular due to the increased energy costs. However, the net result improved by 12 %. In the fourth quarter of 2010 the company could increase the turnover by 9 % and the operating result by 7 %. This gives rise to a positive future perspective. In 2011 Lafarge expect an increased cement demand of 3 % to 6 % in their markets. The emerging countries will continue to remain the most important growth motor. In this connection Lafarge benefit from their good geographical presence.
