Bashneft Q1 Net Up 20%

Bashneft said Tuesday that first-quarter net profit rose 20 percent to $444 million, on revenue up 12.5 percent to $3.92 billion.

EBITDA was up 17 percent to $824 million, helped by the company's reduction of reserve funds set aside for possible future court expenses, leading to a gain of $75 million at the EBITDA level.

Net debt fell 13 percent to $2.35 billion year on year and was 23 percent higher than in the fourth quarter of 2011. EBITDA was flat quarter on quarter.
