Strong 2Q11 earnings on higher volumes

Yansab reported its 2Q11 preliminary results on 11 July 2011, before market hours. Net income for the quarter came in at SR964mn, beating our estimate of SRSR765mn. Net income was up 92% YoY due to increased volumes and selling prices, while QoQ growth of 34% in net income was mainly driven by higher volumes. We believe higher than expected operating rates was the key reason behind the deviation from our estimates.
