Analysis of Financial Highlights
Dorogobuzh’s revenue was up 11% in 2010 due to increased demand and higher global fertiliser prices, despite a considerable reduction in sales resulting from a prolonged ammonia unit shutdown.
EBITDA was up 7% year-on-year. While still high, EBITDA margin was down slightly to 23% from 24% in 2009, largely due to higher raw materials costs.
Net profit in 2010 was up 46% year-on-year. In addition to operating income, Dorogobuzh profited from the sale of some of its financial investments, including Acron shares.
Dorogobuzh’s net debt increased by a factor of 2.2 to RUB 5.76 billion due to its intensive involvement in Acron Group’s large-scale investment programme. In contrast, short-term debt makes up a mere 9% of Dorogobuzh’s total debt. The net debt/EBITDA ratio was 2.2, which is a comfortable debt level for the Company.
Note: The RUB/USD exchange rate was RUB 30.4769 as of December 31, 2010 and RUB 30.2442 as of December 31, 2009; the average 2010 exchange rate was RUB 30.3765, and the average 2009 rate was RUB 31.7669.
