Thursday, October 27, 2011

Mexican construction firm ICA (BMV, NYSE: ICA) posted a 613% rise in net income in the third quarter of this year, earning 965mn pesos (US$73.1mn) compared with 135mn pesos in 3Q10.

The results were boosted by the completion of the sale of the Corredor Sur expressway in Panama and the transfer of two public-private partnership (PPP) highways to affiliate RCO, ICA said in its quarterly earnings report.

The firm's concessions division posted revenues of 774mn pesos, a 43% jump compared with 543mn pesos in 3Q10. The increase stemmed from the Querétaro-Irapuato highway PPP, which was not operational in the prior-year period.
