Abstract: Let $ G$ be a locally compact group with closed normal subgroup $ N$ such that $ G/N$ is compact. In this paper, we construct various semigroup compactifications of $ G$ from compactifications of $ N$ of the same type. This enables us to obtain specific information about the structure of the compactifi cation of $ G$ from the structure of the compactification of $ N$. Our results seem to be interesting and new even when $ G$ is the additive group of real numbers and $ N$ is the integers. Applications and other examples are given.
