The recent taking over of Lafarge by Bestway Cement (KSE: BWCL) seems to make more sense in the light of the latters financials. Indeed, the company's margins have shown significant strides, with net earnings showing an impressive 35 percent increase. The company has also announced a dividend of Rs2.5 per share for the year end.
The dip in automobile sales during FY14 naturally left a bearing on Agriauto Industries Limited (KSE: AGIL). This is evident from net sales of AGIL which show the most notable shift in the financial results announced by the company.

Like most things in Pakistan today, the fate of Gas Infrastructure Development Cess (GIDC) is uncertain at best. The Supreme Court has reportedly annulled the cess terming it unconstitutional, ordering the authorities to reimburse the amount collected. Whether or not, actual reimbursement takes place is another story; but, it is sure to have an impact on the fertiliser industry dynamics.
The circular debt has crossed the Rs500 billion mark; thanks to increasing power sector receivables. And as per media reports, the growth in receivables is staggering as they jumped up by around four percent month on month in only one month, i.e. July 2014. Normally rising circular debt level starts haunting petroleum sales particularly that of furnace oil, when circular debt rises, power generation decreases and the fuel suppliers like PSO, APL and Shell lose sales volumes.
Aside from implications of the current political impasse in the country, news from the international front is seemingly not very encouraging for Pakistan’s cement sector. Recently, the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa accepted an application by South African cement manufacturers, which alleges that Portland cement imported from Pakistan is being dumped on the South African Customs Union (SACU) market.
There is no scarcity of problems in this world. And when it comes to global economics, problems are, in fact, in abundant supply. But, what really are the biggest three economic problems faced by the world today?
