Building materials company CRH PLC (CRG.DB) said Wednesday it expects higher first-half earnings after it recorded a 4% rise in interim sales in the six months to March 31.
Like-for-like group sales for the first quarter increased by 3% compared with the same period last year, it said.
The company said earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization should be ahead of last year's 1.12 billion euros ($1.20 billion).
