Swiss building materials company Holcim AG (HCMLY.PK,HCMLF.PK) reported Friday that its third-quarter recurring EBIT grew 6.2 percent to 1.53 billion Swiss francs from last year's 1.45 billion francs.

Recurring EBIT grew 4.7 percent on a like-for-like basis. The Recurring EBIT increase was primarily driven by strong pricing and good cost management.

Net sales of 7.29 billion francs were up 13 percent from prior year's 6.46 billion francs as good momentum continues. The growth was 5 percent on a like-for-like basis.
