Oct. 12 (Bloomberg) -- YIT Oyj, Finland’s biggest builder, slumped 6.3 percent to 12.20 euros at the start of trading in Helsinki after cutting its full-year outlook for operating profit.
YIT made a 10 million-euro ($13.7 million) provision in its third-quarter earnings as it deals with excess ammonia found in flats it constructed in St. Petersburg, Russia. YIT said operating profit in 2011 will increase, compared with a projection of a “clear” increase versus 2010.
YIT is negotiating compensation with insurance companies and concrete suppliers, it said.
