Grupo SK's profit fell 11.5% in September due to losses in engineering and construction

Sigdo Koppers SK

Sigdo Koppers' consolidated profit increased by 2.3% compared to September 2017, reaching $ 1678.4 million, according to the higher sales level in the industrial area, explained by the higher physical sales in both Enaex and Magoteo.

Consolidated EBITDA stood at $ 211.3 million in September 2018, which is 5.9% higher than in the same period of the previous year. This result is associated with a better operating result in Magotteaux and Fepasa and better performance in the leasing and distribution of SK Comercial's machine building business.

On the other hand, net revenue totaled $ 45.9 million, down 11.5% from the third quarter of 2017, largely due to the losses registered at Sigdo Koppers Engineering and Construction resulting from the Talara Refinery in Peru. This further exerts an effect on the increase in the effective tax rate as deferred taxes related to the reported losses in Talara are not taken into account.


The results of Sigdo Koppers subsidiaries show mixed results that highlight a better performance at Magotteaux and a higher sales level in the Chilean machine distribution business, offset by the negative performance of the engineering and construction business due to problems with operations in Peru and a lower profit in the SK Inversiones Automotrices product with lower margins and exchange rates in the car sales business.
