Rusneftegaz can publish results for the second quarter of the year as of and for the three and six months ended 30 June. These statements were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, otherwise known as IFRS, and have not been audited. The full results are disclosed in the financial section of the Group's website.
The revenues reported during the quarter amounted to $114,1 million, with pre-tax profits amounting to $46,2 million, representing a year-on-year decline of 10,3% and an increase of 8,0% respectively. For the first six months of the year, total revenue recorded amounted to $202,7 million, with the net profit reported totaling $85,7 million, equating to a revenue decrease of 12,4% and a 4,3% increase in net profit compared to 2015. In a continuation of the trend from the last quarter, the falls in revenue is offset by a rise in net profits. Whilst commodity prices and the Group's functional currency, the Russian ruble, continue to be low, the corresponding fall in fuel costs means that Rusneftegaz continues to have a positive outlook for the next quarter.
