Challenge to cement future pricing power – Financial Mail Investors Monthly

The promise of a quickly growing international business was, until September last year, propping up PPC’s shares despite a weak South African market. But the stock’s gains were whittled away during a four-month boardroom drama, which was finally resolved in late January after the board was reconstituted at the company’s AGM, and new CEO Darryll Castle was given a vote of confidence by shareholders. In early February, the cement company’s shares were worth a third less than at a peak in September, prior to Ketso Gordhan’s acrimonious exit as CEO. With a new CEO and board now in place, the question to ask is whether or not the PPC share is a buy at these depressed levels. Victor Seanie comments.
