LONDON MMC Norilsk Nickel posted net income of $554 million for the first half of 2013, down 63 percent from just over $1.5 billion in the same period last year due to a "substantial revenue contraction" and major non-cash write-offs, the company said Aug. 29.
Revenue fell 6.1 percent to just under $5.57 billion from $5.93 billion a year earlier because of weak metal prices and lower sales volumes of nickel and platinum, Norilsk said.....
Excluding non-cash write-offs, earnings of $1.2 billion were down 21 percent in the same comparison.
