“Loss of $85 million was primarily due to the recognition of provisions for ongoing litigation and disputes in Ukraine totaling $131 million as of December 31, 2023. Excluding the impact of these provisions, the result for the 2023 financial year would have been a profit of $46 million, reflecting an 82% decline in group operating profit due to the ongoing war, as well as a significantly lower net foreign exchange gain of $23 million in 2023 compared to $276 million in 2022,” the company said in its annual report on Thursday.

According to him, Ferrexpo's revenue fell by almost half last year – by 47.8%, to $651.80 million, and operating profit – by 5.7 times, to $71.13 million.

The report notes that, despite the loss for the year, the underlying EBITDA indicator remained positive in 2023, but decreased by 83% – to $130 million. In addition to the reasons listed above, its fall was also affected by a decrease in sales prices for 21%, due to a decrease in the base price for iron ore fines and premiums for pellets in 2023, which was partially offset by a decrease in expenses for category C1 by 8%.
