Origin Energy lifts guidance after H1 loss

by
February 15, 2018

Origin Energy CEO Frank Calabria says there is positive momentum within the company.

Origin Energy has dramatically narrowed its half-year loss to $207 million, from $1.56 billion, but has still been weighed down by $533 million in impairments.

Underlying profit, however, jumped to $428 million from $173 million - helped by improvement in its electricity and gas businesses and a ramp-up in production at the Australia Pacific LNG terminal.

Origin did not declare an interim dividend, citing its focus on reducing debt.
