Shanshui Cement 2014 Revenue Reaches RMB15,596 Million; Profit Attributable to Equity Shareholders of the Company is RMB348 Million


HONG KONG, Mar 30, 2015 – (ACN Newswire) – China Shanshui Cement Group Limited ("Shanshui Cement" or the "Group"; HKEx: 00691), the largest cement enterprise in Shandong and Liaoning Provinces in China, has announced its audited annual results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2014, prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.

During the year, the Group recorded sales revenue of RMB15,596 million. Gross profit was RMB3,347 million. Profit from operations was RMB1,813 million. Profit attributable to equity shareholders of the Company was RMB348 million. The decrease in profit was mainly due to the fall of selling prices. Basic earnings per share were RMB0.12. The Board does not recommend dividend payment for the year ended 31 December 2014.

Mr. Zhang Bin, Chairman and General Manager of Shanshui Cement, said "Due to the slowdown in China's economic growth and deceleration in the growth rate of fixed assets investment, in particular, the decline in the growth rate of investment in real estate development, the national aggregate volume in cement production only increased 1.8% in 2014 as compared with the previous year. The sales revenue and profit growth of the cement industry also showed a corresponding sluggish trend. In the face of the weak market demand and the stagnant prices, the Group has been actively preparing for the in-depth expansion along the industrial product chain, improving and refining fundamental internal management and enhancing the quality of production and operational performance to maintain sustainable profitability."

During the year, the sales volume of concrete of the Group increased by 21.2% to 3.47 million cubic meters, while the sales volume of commercial clinker increased by 6.5% to 9.82 million tonnes. The sales volume of cement decreased by 0.5% to 53.15 million tonnes. The sales volume of high grade cement rose 12.5% to 39.98 million tonnes, and sales volume of low grade cement dropped 26.4% to 13.17 million tonnes.

The average unit selling price of cement of the Group was RMB235.4 per tonne, representing a year-on-year decrease of RMB14.5 per tonne or 5.8%. The Group's operating companies in the Shandong Region recorded a sales revenue of RMB10,479 million, accounting for 67.2% of the Group's total sales revenue. The operating companies in the Northeast Region reported sales revenue of RMB4,028 million, accounting for 25.8% of the Group's total sales revenue. The commencement of operations for its operating companies in Shanxi will make greater contributions to the Group's sales revenue.

Through establishing nine new production lines and acquiring two production facilities, the Group added both new cement and clinker production capacity (including production lines in test run) of 8.40 million tonnes and 3.58 million tonnes respectively. As at the end of 2014, the total capacity of the Group's commercial concrete production lines amounted to 18.40 million m3; all suitable clinker production lines had been equipped with residual heat generation facilities, and the total installed capacity amounted to 247.0 MW. As more new projects commence operations, the Group is further strengthening its position and standing out in the cement markets in Shandong, Liaoning and Shanxi provinces, as well as in eastern Inner Mongolia and the Kashi region of Xinjiang.

The Group has implemented strict measures to control costs and expenses. During the year, the proportion of the Group's total cost of sales to revenue was 78.5%, representing a year-on-year increase of 1.7 percentage points. Of which, the proportion of raw materials costs to revenue was 26.4%, an increase of 0.9 percentage points over last year. The proportion of coal costs to revenue was 20.1%, remaining flat over last year. The Group's average unit purchase price of coal in 2014 decreased by 9.2% year on year to RMB521.2 per tonne. As for cost reduction, output of residual heat power generation was 1,178 million KWH in 2014, thus reducing the cost of clinker by RMB429 million.

Looking at the operating environment in 2015, Mr. Zhang believes that the increase of infrastructure investment by the government will boost demand in cement. On the other hand, the imposition of more stringent emission standards in the cement industry, the rise in environmental compliance costs, and the gradual elimination of low-end cement products will speed up the elimination of obsolete production capacity. This will in turn facilitate industry consolidation, further increase market concentration, and gradually resolve the imbalance of supply and demand in the cement market as the competitive advantages of large enterprises will become more apparent.

Mr. Zhang concluded, "Shanshui Cement will further consolidate its market share in core regions, stabilize the price of cement, optimize centralized procurement and supply systems in order to effectively reduce the costs and enhance operational efficiency. We will spare no effort to maintain the healthy development of the Group and strive for fruitful returns for our investors to reward their continued trust and support."

Tamworth and Burton Upon Trent School Uniform Specialist to Meet New Schools Challenge

Staffordshire, UK — (ReleaseWire) — 03/30/2015 — As the government pledges 500 more free schools for the UK by 2020, Burton upon Trent and Tamworth School uniform and schoolwear specialist, Clothing4 Schools, pledges to provide all items of school clothing in-line with school branding, quality and styling guidelines.

As well as a number of Burton upon Trent and Tamworth schools transforming to academy status, the government announced this week that, should they retain power following the forthcoming general election, that they’ll introduce 500 more free state schools, a number of which will be established throughout the Burton upon Trent and Tamworth areas.

The 500 free schools will create 270,000 school places and some 49 more free schools have already been approved. Should plans be fully implemented, the number of free schools throughout the UK will number 900, being one in 30 state schools with around 500,000 places. The changes will of course create strong demand for branded schoolwear, with each and every one of the new academies having their own personalised and specific school uniform requirements, from school blazers, to school ties, school jumpers, trousers, skirts, dresses and school sports kits.

Staffordshire’s Clothing4 Schools is only too aware of the forthcoming demands for school clothing and intends to adapt to the demands of new and reformed schools and academies swiftly. The company made its name throughout the region by providing quality schoolwear to a large percentage of Tamworth ad Burton upon Trent nurseries, schools and academies. Clothing4 Schools headquarters is its Burton upon Trent schoolwear centre which comprises a showroom, changing facility and state-of-the-art embroidery machines, printing equipment and design suite, enabling the company to produce virtually all quality school-specific schoolwear items. The company’s new Tamworth store takes school uniforms for a number of Tamworth Schools directly to local parents.

Clothing4 Schools Director, Clive Wilmot, explains exactly how his company is ready to provide school clothing to new schools and academies: “Because we’re part of the Apparel Group, which is a large national provider of uniforms to PLC’s and large organisations and because we have ties with one of the largest schoolwear manufacturers in Europe, Clothing4 Schools can extend the same quality-controlled service to accommodate new schools and academies rapidly”. My Wilmot added; “Knowing the area very well, working closely with schools to ensure compliance and being a member of the National Schoolwear Association are all factors that give Clothing4 Schools a competitive edge”.

In addition to its two business units, the company also provides most schoolwear items online through it’s easy to navigate online school uniform shop that can be found at http://www.clothing4schools.com. As well as clothing for schools, P.E. kits and school sports team kits, the site also carries an array of clothing for Cubs, Scouts, Beavers, Brownies and Guides.

The Smart Clinics Welcome Bupa Clients for Health Assessments

Bupa patients can now access their annual health checks and assessments at The Smart Clinics based in Brompton Cross. This provides an additional London location and access to The Smart Clinics’ expert team.

London (PRWEB UK) 30 March 2015

The Smart Clinics has announced an exciting association with healthcare provider Bupa, which will enable Bupa clients and patients to benefit from health checks and assessments with The Smart Clinics’ private GP and healthcare teams in London.

The partnership with The Smart Clinics offers Bupa clients health assessments in a highly accessible location at The Smart Clinics’ Brompton Cross Clinic, serving clients living and working in the South Kensington and Knightsbridge area.

The Brompton Cross clinic is well-equipped and recently refurbished to a high standard, offering a professional experience throughout, designed to put patients at ease.

The Smart Clinics’ founder and Director, Dr. David Smart MB ChB, explains:

“This additional choice of a new central London clinic will be welcome news for those working in the area who are enrolled in Bupa by their employers, as well as individuals who have private membership for themselves and their families.”

“An annual health assessment is a vital screening to understand people’s current state of health in order to put in place any actions or support required to ensure future wellbeing.”

“We also offer an annual health check for members of The Smart Clinics scheme and find it an invaluable means of monitoring a person’s health and fitness across a range of criteria. It can act as an early warning system for a series of very important issues, enabling us to take early action. Equally, it is rewarding to see improvements in health over time where that is the case.”

Bupa’s website explains further:

“A third of people who come for a health assessment discover a health issue that they were previously unaware of. We can identify early warning signs of potential health risks, helping you take the necessary steps to prevent them.”

Health assessments at The Smart Clinics are carried out by their team of Private GPs. The assessment starts with a medical history and lifestyle questionnaire, followed by a physical examination and consultation with a doctor which includes an opportunity to raise any questions or concerns. A series of medical screening tests will then be arranged, and finally, a health report with recommendations for further action.

Dr. David Smart concludes:

“The assessment gives patients a real insight into how lifestyle choices impact their health. For example, an increase in weight can lead to heart disease, diabetes or joint problems, while regular exercise can prevent cardiovascular disease.”

“Tracking these changes on an annual basis is an excellent means of providing the best possible advice.”

The Smart Clinics was founded in 2013 by Dr. David Smart MB ChB and is an independent and doctor-managed company with a genuine commitment to quality healthcare at the heart of the business. The company has two locations with South Kensington (Brompton Cross) in North London and Wandsworth covering the South London area.

The company is best known for its unique membership based private GP service with access to a friendly team of experienced doctors, which entitles individuals, families and corporate members to unlimited GP access for a monthly fee. Private dentistry is also available as an optional extra in the Brompton Cross clinic. Non-members are also welcome to access The Smart Clinics’ GPs, nurses and healthcare professionals on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.

In addition to doctors and dentists, The Smart Clinics works with an extensive group of healthcare professionals from osteopaths to dermatologists, helping their patients to take control of their healthcare issues and access early treatment and assistance for a broad range of issues.
