Feb 18 (Reuters) - Canadian fertilizer maker Nutrien Ltd reported a quarterly loss from continuing operations, hurt by weak demand for potash.
The company reported a net loss from continuing operations of $48 million, or 8 cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, compared with a profit of $296 million, or 48 cents per share, a year earlier.
Nutrien said it recorded charges of $128 million, primarily related to the rebranding of the Australian retail business after the Ruralco acquisition.
Sales fell 8.5% to $3.44 billion. (Reporting by Arundhati Sarkar in Bengaluru; Editing by Anil D’Silva)
