Financial Results Analysis
Higher global prices and a considerable increase in mineral fertiliser sales drove Dorogobuzh’s revenue up 37% and boosted EBITDA by 88%.
Net profit more than doubled principally due to higher operating revenue, as well as an exchange gain from revaluation of Dorogobuzh’s foreign currency-denominated liabilities riding on a stronger rouble.
Dorogobuzh’s net debt as of the end of the reporting period was down 31% to RUB 2.5 billion, against RUB 3.66 billion in late 2010. Higher operating revenue also accounted for reduced debt.
