Anyang Iron and Steel Co., Ltd , one major steelmaker in central China's Henan province, saw its net profit slump 70.59% year on year to 27.76 million yuan ($4.2 million) in the first half of the year, said the company in a statement late August 9.
Operating revenue of the company grew 0.4% from a year earlier to 11.5 billion yuan over January-June, according to the statement.
In the second quarter, Anyang Iron and Steel made 228 million yuan of net profit, a year-on-year drop of 14.88%, the company said. The profitability was better in the second quarter than in the first quarter, as output of some steel products increased amid loosening environmental inspection.
