Novatek 2009 Profit Slips

Novatek said Friday that 2009 profit declined 0.5 percent from a year earlier as the ruble fell against the dollar.

Net income slid to 7.14 billion rubles ($234 million) from 7.18 billion rubles, the gas producer said in a statement. That missed a mean estimate of 7.61 billion rubles from eight analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.
