Australia: James Hardie Industries, the world's largest fibre cement producer, highlighted the potential for higher earnings in the 2020 fiscal year, citing an improved performance for its North American fibre cement segment.

The company said it expected full-year adjusted net operating profit to be US$221-248m, compared with US$204m a year earlier.

"Our North America Fiber Cement segment delivered very good volume growth in a down market while generating an earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) margin at the top end of our target range," said CEO Jack Truong in a statement.
