Energy Development Stock Falls Most in a Week on Profit Decline

Energy Development Corp. (EDC) dropped the most in more than a week after the Philippines’ largest geothermal company said net income fell 86 percent to 615 million pesos last year.

The stock declined 3.5 percent to 5.20 pesos at 9:59 a.m. in Manila trading, set for its sharpest fall since Feb. 24. The company traced the profit drop to a write-off and forgone steam sales, according to an e-mailed statement yesterday.
