Evraz posts H1 net loss of $122 mln
MOSCOW Aug 29 (Reuters) - Russia's largest steelmaker Evraz posted on Thursday a first-half net loss of $122 million, in line with analyst expectations, attributing the loss to weak prices for steel.
The company, controlled partly by Chelsea soccer club owner Roman Abramovich, said revenue fell 3 percent to $7.4 billion, while consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) fell 21 percent to $939 million.
The firm, which paid a first-half dividend in 2012, said it had recommended its board not pay an interim dividend for the first half of 2013.
