(Corrects paragraph 2 to say adjusted EBITDA rose, not fell)
Aug 20 Precious metals miner Hochschild Mining
Plc reported a 4 percent rise in first-half adjusted
core earnings, helped by its aggressive cost-cutting programme
and increased output from its assets in Peru and Argentina.
Hochschild's adjusted earnings before interest, tax,
depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose to $94.3 million,
from $90.4 million a year earlier.
Net revenue for the six months ended June 30 fell 8.6
percent to $282 million.
