Yancoal Australia has posted a 2017 net profit of $A229m, its first since 2012. The result was boosted by pre-tax earnings of $A276m for the Coal & Allied assets that Yancoal bought for $US2.7bn ($A3.5bn). Yancoal CEO Reinhold Schmidt notes that the deal made the Chinese-backed company the third-largest coal producer in Australia. He says dividends may be on the agenda at some point, but stresses that the focus is on delivering sustainable returns for investors.
