Canadian low-cost gold producer Eldorado Gold Corp. (EGO, EGO.TO) on Thursday reported a loss for the fourth quarter that narrowed from last year when results were impacted by a hefty impairment charge.
Fourth-quarter loss attributable to shareholders of the company was $32.5 million or $0.05 per share, narrower than loss of $1.24 billion or $1.73 per share.
During the year-ago period, the company recorded an impairment charge attributable to shareholders of the company, net of taxes, of $1.25 billion mainly related to its Skouries project.
Adjusted earnings for the latest quarter were $2.9 million, compared to adjusted loss of $19.3 million in the same period last year.
The main factors that impacted adjusted earnings for the quarter year over year were lower sales volumes partly offset by higher gold prices.
