economic performance

Yara’s 2011 net income after non-controlling interests was NOK 12,066 million, a significant increase from NOK 8,729 million in 2010. The 2011 earnings per share were NOK 41.99, compared with NOK 30.24 in 2010.

Good farming profitability increased fertilizer demand and supported improved margins in 2011. This contributed to the strong results, offsetting the slight decrease in the sale of mineral fertilizers, at 19.5 million tons (20.3 million tons in 2010).

Revenues and other income increased by 23%, to NOK 80,352 million, up from NOK 65,374 million in 2010. Net interest-bearing debt decreased by NOK 4,001 million during 2011, standing at NOK 5,539 million as of 31 December, equaling a debt/equity ratio of 0.12. Average realized nitrate prices were 49% higher than last year, while realized urea prices increased 37%. The major positive non-recurring items were generated by the sale of Yara’s share in Rossosh and the part-divestment of Yara’s share in Yara Praxair.
