Sherritt quarterly profit hurt by higher costs

(Reuters) - Diversified miner Sherritt International Corp (S.TO) said on Wednesday its first-quarter profit fell almost 50 percent, as higher raw material costs and lower nickel prices weighed on its results.

    Toronto-based Sherritt, which has operations spread across Canada, Cuba, Madagascar, Pakistan and Spain, said net income in the quarter fell to C$32.3 million or 11 Canadian cents a share, down from a year-earlier profit of C$63.6 million, or 22 Canadian cents a share.
