Wienerberger <WBSV.VI>, the world's largest brickmaker, plans to pay out more money to shareholders, aiming to distribute 20 to 40% of its free cash flow in the form of dividends and share buybacks in the future, it said on Monday. Wienerberger is hiking its capital distribution policy from the 10 to 30% of free cash flow it had previously paid out to shareholders after deduction of the costs of hybrid capital, the Austrian company said.
Austria's Wienerberger <WBSV.VI>, the world's largest brickmaker, raised its full-year forecast on Tuesday after strong demand for its building materials, efficiency gains and revenues from recent acquisitions lifted first-half results. Wienerberger's group revenue rose 8% to 1.74 billion euros (£1.62 billion) in the six months through June, while adjusted earnings before interest, tax, amortisation and depreciation (EBITDA) grew 33% to 286.6 million euros. Wienerberger's generally optimistic outlook echoed those of other construction companies, but unlike most of its rivals it also said business was flourishing in Britain, its largest single market with a 10% revenue contribution.
