LafargeHolcim first half profit fell 43 percent, the company said on Friday, as the world’s largest cement took 300 million Swiss francs ($301.81 million) in restructuring costs from its overhaul under Chief Executive Jan Jenisch.

The Zurich company said first-half net profit tumbled to 371 million Swiss francs ($373.24 million), from 651 million francs a year earlier.
