3 Seasonality of business
Seasonality of certain operations of the company affects the company’s profit and its timing. Weather conditions influence the lengths of the Paving segment’s paving and mineral aggregates businesses working seasons, which affects the company’s profit and its timing. The working seasons of these businesses and consequently their profits take place mostly in the second and third quarters. In addition, there may be some seasonality in the Infra projects segment’s foundation engineering business due to the timing of building construction projects.
Revenue from residential and non-residential development projects is recognised, for the sold proportion, on completion which causes seasonal fluctuations to the company’s profit. The company seeks to balance this fluctuation by launching new developed projects evenly throughout the year in which case the projects will be completed and revenue from them is recognised as evenly as possible throughout the year.
