Economic performance 2010

Yara’s 2010 net income after non-controlling interests was NOK 8,729 million, more than double the 2009 result. 2010 earnings per share were NOK 30.24, compared with NOK 13.08 in 2009.

Full-year results improved significantly from 2009 due to higher prices and margins, as well as positive non-recurring items. Overall fertilizer deliveries were in line with 2009, with a small increase in European volumes, while sales outside Europe were slightly lower. Average realized nitrate prices were approximately 14 percent higher than last year, while realized urea prices increased eight percent.

Net interest-bearing debt decreased by NOK 6,687 million during 2010, ending at NOK 9,540 million. The decline primarily reflects strong earnings and consideration from the sale of Yara’s 15.5 percent ownership in the Brazilian phosphate producer Fosfertil.
