Ansell profits up $30 million, warns of currency movements in coming year

Gloves and condom maker Ansell reported a jump in full-year profits this morning, announcing a net profit of $US 187.5 million for the 2015 financial year.

AAP reports that the result was up from $US 157 million the previous year, with underlying earnings improving by 20 per cent, and sales up 3.5 per cent to $US1.645 billion.

A stronger US dollar was expected to impact negatively on profits this financial year, the company cautioned.
