Notes on Key Financials
Dorogobuzh financial indicators improved in 2010, encouraged by higher prices and an upswing in global demand for the mineral fertilisers that are the Company’s key products. Despite the long shutdown of the ammonia unit due to an overhaul in mid-2010 and the resulting 7.7% drop in output, the Company managed to improve its operating profit and EBITDA.
In addition to core operations, proceeds from the sale of investments also contributed to higher net profit.
There are no planned shutdowns of the ammonia unit for revamping scheduled for 2011, which should have a beneficial effect on the Company’s operating results. Furthermore, the reconstruction performed in 2010 will allow Dorogobuzh to improve its energy efficiency and expand its ammonia and mineral fertiliser production.
