Yankuang Energy First-Quarter Profit Fell 15%

By Yifan Wang


Yankuang Energy Group Co. said its net profit fell 15% in the first quarter, as costs rose faster than revenue and weighed on the bottom line.

The Chinese coal miner posted net profit of 5.65 billion yuan ($816.0 million), down from CNY6.68 billion a year earlier.

Revenue rose 7.8% to CNY44.42 billion, it said Friday.

However, operating costs rose by a steeper pace of 18%, mainly due to a 30% jump in its cost of coal sales. The higher coal sales cost was in part a result of lower coal production volume, which dragged on the company's unit cost efficiency.
