Fertilizer Producer Posts Profits Down 20%

Akron, one of Russia's largest mineral fertilizer producers, reported an IFRS net profit of 5.236 billion rubles ($158.6 million) in January to June 2013, down 20 percent from the same period last year, the company said Tuesday.

The company's net profit was above the consensus forecast by analysts polled by the Prime news agency who expected the company's net financial result for the first six months to be 4.51 billion rubles.

Akron said its revenues in the reporting period fell three percent to 34.251 billion rubles ($1 billion).

Earnings before interest, taxation, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) dropped 11 percent in the first half of this year to 8.818 billion rubles.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. 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.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
