TMK H1 Profit Up Sharply

Steel pipe maker TMK said Friday that first-half net profit reached $258 million, up from $67 million last year.

TMK provided a mixed outlook for the rest of the year, with seasonal weakness in the current quarter seen to be followed by fourth-quarter recovery.

"A stronger operating performance expected in the fourth quarter of 2011 should largely offset the negative impact of the preceding quarter," the company said. First-half earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization reached $625 million, up from $415 million. Revenue in the period was $3.55 billion, up from $2.57 billion.

This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
