Financial loss nudges Alteo into red in Q1
Hungarian energy supplier and trader Alteo finished the first quarter just under the break-even mark as financial losses pushed the company into the red. Revenue climbed 14% to HUF 2.02 billion, Alteo's consolidated IFRS report published late Tuesday shows. Gross profit rose 8% to HUF 387 million and EBITDA was up 44% at 370 million.

Alteo had total assets of HUF 9.0 billion on March 31, up 6% from the end of 2012. Net assets edged down a little less than 1% to HUF 1.88 billion.
