Surgutneftegas, the country's fourth-largest oil company, reported an 81 percent year-on-year rise in 2011 net profit to 233.16 billion rubles ($7.93 billion), the company said Thursday.

Troika Dialog analysts say that as per the Surgut's policy, the dividend on preferred shares will come to 2.15 rubles per share, for a 10.3 percent yield.
