ALROSA unit reports net loss for first half of fiscal year due to plunging demand

10 august 2009

ALROSA-Nyurba, a unit of Russian mining giant ALROSA, reported a net loss of around $19 million for the first half of its fiscal year, Antwerpfacetsonline reported.
The loss contrasts sharply with the net profit of $53 million posted by ALROSA-Nyurba for the year earlier period when rough diamond prices reached their peak before starting their descent in the fourth quarter of 2008.
ALROSA-Nyurba said its sales plunged 54 percent to $120 million, according to a report on Interfax.
Meanwhile, the company's operating losses amounted to $20.5 million compared with an operating profit of $78million for the same period of 2008. Pre-tax losses were $24 million compared with a pre-tax profit of $72 million last year.
The company said the loss was a direct result of the global financial crisis which has slashed demand for diamonds.
