6 PRODUCTION: Clinker Production: Total quantity of clinker produced during 2014 amounted to 8,599,000 tons compared to a quantity of 8,905,685 tons for 2013 i.e. a decrease of (306,685) tons or approximately (3,, 4%). The production from kilns No. 6, 7 and 8 during the year achieved production efficiency in excess of each kiln s designed capacity. On the other hand, total clinker production for all cement companies in the Kingdom during 2014 reached about 57.6 million tons in comparison with 54.2 million tons for 2013, i.e. an increase of about 6.3 %. Cement Production: Cement production for 2014 totaled 8,042,659 tons in comparison with 8,794,258 tons for 2013, i.e. a decrease of (751,599) tons or approximately (8, 5%). Cement grinding and dispatch were mainly conducted at Hofuf Plant. Also, Ain Dar cement grinding and dispatch facilities were partially utilized for meeting cement sales by rail and additional requirements of the local market. Clinker Stock: The clinker inventory as of December 31, 2014 amounted to 3,240,146 tons, in comparison with a quantity of 2,182,062 tons as of December 31, 2013, i.e. an increase of 1,058,084 tons or approximately 48,5%. On the other hand, clinker inventory for all cement companies in the Kingdom soared to historical levels by the end of 2014, reaching 21.6 million tons, an increase of 6.8 million tons and 47% compared to the end of The escalation in clinker inventory was due to slower pace of growth of domestic demand during 2014 than CAGR of the preceding seven years, increase in local production quantities, and clinker importation in compliance with the directions of the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Operation and Maintenance: SCC continued highly efficient operation and maintenance by improving the time available for operation and increasing the daily production volume, which contributed positively to reduction of cost per ton. SCC has maintained its supremacy in producing its high quality types of cement products, and has the capability and flexibility to produce other types of cement, if that proves to be economically viable. = 6 =

7 MARKETING: Introduction: The pace of growth of cement demand in Saudi Arabia was slower during 2014 than CAGR of the preceding seven years due to the negative impact of work force shortage on the building and construction activity. Accordingly, the total local cement sales quantity reached around 56.5 million tons, in comparison with a total demand of million tons for 2013 i.e. an increase of just 1.3 million tons or approximately 2.4%. Total cement sales (local & export) for the year 2014 amounted to 57.2 Million tons. Sales: SCC s local cement sales volume for 2014 was 7,551,953 tons in comparison with 8,559,636 tons for 2013 i.e. a decline of (1,007,683) tons or (11.8%).Total local & export cement sales volume for 2014 amounted to 7,972,414 tons in comparison with 8,757,826 tons for 2013, i.e. a decrease of (785,412) tons or (9%). Exports: The total exported quantities during 2014 were 420,461 tons, compared to 198,190 tons in 2013, i.e. an increase of 222,271 tons or approximately 112.2%. The above increase was attributed mainly to rising Company s sales in the kingdom of Bahrain. Principal Activity: Saudi Cement Company s (SCC s) principal and sole activity is confined to the manufacture and trading of cement and cement related products. Hence, the company does not carry out any other activity, nor does it produce any other products. Plans, Decisions & Future Expectations: Currently, SCC has no expansion plans for its production facilities due to adequacy of production capacity kingdom wise for several future years. Further, clinker inventory levels for cement companies has reached historical heights whose utilization may require considerable time. (a) Stoppage of old Kilns (1,2,3): The Board of Directors decided on 16/5/1435 (17/3/2014) to stop permanently old production lines 1, 2, 3 in Hofuf Plant with a total capacity of 1,325 clinker per day due to oldness, higher operating costs, and lower environmental efficiency. It is worth mentioning that these Kilns were re-operated on 22/12/2012 to meet growing cement demand and market pressures at the time. However, since the need for their re-operation has ceased to exist for now and future, a decision was made to eternally close these kilns and remove them from the plant site. = 7 =

8 (b) Rehabilitation of Klins (4, 5): Rehabilitation and operation of Kiln 4 and 5 at Hofuf plant with the installed capacity of 3,000 ( Three thousands ) tons of clinker per day was forecasted during the third quarter of However, the company announced on (22/09/2014) completion of these rehabilitation works, and the decision to refrain from operating these kilns for the time being due to high levels of Clinker inventory kingdom-wise at the end of August 2014 of about 19.8 million tons, absence of any real growth in demand Kingdom-wise during the period up to August 2014 compared with the corresponding period of the previous year, and a decline in the company's sales volume during the same period of approximately 14%. The feasibility of operating these Kilns shall be re-considered whenever market conditions warrant that. (C) Concentrating Cement Grinding Capacity at Hofuf Plant: Currently, SCC mainly utilizes its grinding facilities at Hofuf Plant and, partially depends on the grinding facilities at its Ain Dar Plant to cater for cement Rail dispatches and any rising demand in the local market. SCC, however, aims to concentrate its grinding operations at Hofuf Plant only in order to cut costs and better serve its customers. Accordingly, a contract was signed for laying of new full- facility rail tracks capable of handling up to 70 railway wagons at Hofuf plant with a total cost of SR 38 million and expected completion date of November Another contract with a total cost of SR 84 million and expected completion date of January 2016 was signed for constructing a cement loading facility for serving these new tracks,. The above projects require raising the operational efficiency of grinding facility at Hofuf plant to higher levels in order to compensate for Ain Dar plant s old grinding facility which will be stopped ( due to high operating cost and in order to save on additional clinker transportation charges from Hofuf plant to Ain Dar plant) and improve the cement quality and meeting MEPA s environmental requirements. Accordingly, the Board of Directors had already resolved to add two new mills with total designed capacity of approximately 440 ton/hour. The technical offers from qualified contractors were received and the final evaluation of the technical offers shall be completed during Risks facing the Company: Like other cement companies in Saudi Arabia, SCC faces some operational risks such as the possibility of fluctuations in the prices of raw materials and other production input. In addition, the Company faces the kingdom s macroeconomic risk and its associated volatilities like other domestic companies, which may result in decline in cement demand. However, due to the expected continuation of high government spending (as was reflected in the 2015 Government Budget), it is highly unlikely that such risks will materialize. = 8 =
