Yara reports ‘satisfactory’ underlying results


Yara International ASA has reported satisfactory underlying results for fourth quarter 2008, with significant negative one-offs, and full-year results regarded as ‘the best so far for Yara’.

Yara revealed a negative fourth-quarter net income after minority interest of NOK 2,109m (negative NOK 7.27 per share), compared with a profit of NOK 2,044m (NOK 7.01 per share) last year.

Fourth-quarter operating income was NOK 408m compared with NOK 1,494m last year. EBITDA for the quarter was NOK 1,626m compared with NOK 2,531m in the fourth quarter last year.
