TORONTO, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Uranium One Inc UUU.TO said on Wednesday it had a steeper second-quarter loss, mainly due to impairments on non-core assets held for sale.
The Canadian miner named Jean Nortier as president and chief executive.
Uranium One reported a loss of $67.9 million, or 15 cents a share, compared with a year-earlier loss of $13.7 million, or 4 cents a share.
Adjusted to exclude one-off charges, the company earned $6.6 million, or 1 cent a share, compared to a loss of $6.9 million, or 2 cents a share in the year-ago period.
A Reuters Estimates compilation of analysts’ forecasts had predicted adjusted earnings of one cent a share.
The company recorded an impairment charge on its assets held for sale of $81.2 million during the quarter.
Revenues rose to $49.4 million, from $23.3 million.
Uranium One said its second-quarter production totaled a record 767,100 pounds.
It left its 2008 production forecast unchanged at 3.1 million pounds. ($1=$1.07 Canadian) (Reporting by John McCrank; editing by Janet Guttsman)
