Aluminum and hydropower producer EN+ Group International PJSC (ENPL.LN) said on Thursday that its latest earnings could be buoyed by its shareholding in Norilsk Nickel Mining & Metallurgical Co. (GMKN.MZ).
The Russia-focused, London-listed company said that it will hold a board meeting to consider Norilsk's latest earnings statement which were released Tuesday and which it didn't have available when it was making its own accounts.
The company said that it will then review its half-year report--published on Aug. 16--to possibly revise them upwards.
In its half-year report, Norilsk said that its total revenue rose 7.9% to $6.29 billion, with net profit increasing 72% to $2.88 billion.
EN+ Group has a stake in the nickel and palladium mining company through its 50.1% shareholding in United Co. Rusal PLC (0486.HK). Rusal's stake in Norilsk totals 27.8%.
