Corporate Moment / Cemex, beyond the fine in Spain – El Sol de México

The company run by Fernando González described its 2023 results as exceptional, and announced a dividend payment program of up to $120 million in the first year, but its shares lost more than 7%. The reason? The figures were slightly lower than the market consensus, a conservative guide to results for 2024, and the increase in the net loss due to a million-dollar fine imposed in Spain for a tax resolution against it. However, brokerages such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan maintained their recommendations and target prices, while Banorte’s stock market analysis team explained that the report reaffirmed its expectations that Cemex’s growth dynamics should continue, although at a lower rate. pace, so it will revise its estimates and target price with positive implications.

For its part, Santander considered that the EBITDA guide for 2024 seems widely achievable with low or mid-single digit growth, which would total $3.5 billion; Cemex expects a decrease in energy costs; that capital spending reaches $1.6 billion; and consolidated cement volumes would remain stable. Santander highlighted operations in the United States and Mexico where the company expects single-digit volume growth, and highlighted that the presidential election cycle has a positive effect in the first half of the year, and in terms of taxes, Cemex expects tax one billion dollars, and of that amount the majority would be related to the tax fine in Spain.
