(Reuters) - Building material supplier SIG Plc <SHI.L> on Tuesday reported a 1.4 percent fall in group revenue from continuing operations for the year, hit by a slowdown in construction markets in UK, France and Germany.

The company — which supplies insulation, energy management and roofing products — said group like-for-like revenue fell 2.3 percent and expects to report an adjusted pretax profit of about 75 million pounds ($95.75 million) for the year ended Dec. 31.
