Kemira to cut costs after fall in profits
HELSINKI, July 26
HELSINKI, July 26 (Reuters) - Finnish chemicals firm Kemira reported a fall in second-quarter profits and launched a cost saving programme that could lead to 600 job cuts.
April-June operative EBIT (core profit) fell 4.0 percent from a year earlier to 35.7 million euros ($43.28 million), weighed down by higher fixed costs.
