Feb 24 (Reuters) - Canadian oil producer Husky Energy Inc posted a fourth-quarter profit, compared with a year-earlier loss, helped by a gain on asset sales and the reversal of a C$202 million ($154 million) impairment charge.
The company reported a profit of C$186 million, or 19 Canadian cents per share, for the quarter ended Dec. 31. Excluding the one-time items, Husky posted a loss of $6 million.
