Nordgold 4Q Profit Up

Nordgold, the gold mining company spun off from Severstal this year, more than doubled fourth-quarter profit on increased production, it said.

Net income rose to $78.3 million from $34.5 million a year earlier. Sales grew 43 percent to $385 million. Gold production may expand to as much as a record 850,000 ounces this year, the company said in a statement Friday. Output expanded 28 percent to 754,000 ounces last year, Nordgold said Jan. 18.

Full-year net income attributable to shareholders almost doubled to $168.9 million, while EBITDA rose 55 percent to $574 million. Revenue grew 57 percent to $1.2 billion. Nordgold said it may declare a maiden dividend when it releases interim results.
