Thailand: Siam Cement's net profit rose by 15% year-on-year to US$254m in the third quarter of 2015 as improved margins from petrochemical products outweighed weak performance of cement and packaging businesses, according to Reuters. However, profit fell by 19% quarter-on-quarter due to weaker chemical prices and inventory loss.
