* EBITDA is operating profit adjusted for depreciation and amortisation, exchange rate gain/loss and other non-cash and non-standard items.
• Total sales reached 759,000 tonnes, down 6% year-on-year.

Notes to main statement items
Higher complex fertiliser sale prices and volumes contributed to the increase in Dorogobuzh’s revenue in H1 2010. EBITDA was down slightly on higher production costs, primarily elevated prices for key mineral fertiliser raw materials in Russia.
On a more positive note, Dorogobuzh managed to increase its net profit owing to stronger financial income and the consolidation of a profit share from its associate Estonian port terminal AS DBT (Dorogobuzh acquired a 50% interest last year).
