Rinker has experienced very strong revenue growth in the 05/06 period with a growth rate of 17%. This is higher than the growth rates seen in the previous two periods of 9.43% and 14.09%. We have forecasted growth rates of 17%, 14% and 10% for the next three periods, following trends and forecasts that have been stated in the company’s 2006 annual report.
EBIT margins have increased from 13.36% in 2004 to 22.43% in 2006 but it is unlikely that these margins will remain high due to increasing raw material, energy and freight costs. We have forecasted EBIT margins at 20%, 17% and 14% in the next three years.
