The article reports on the profits posted by Israel Chemicals Co. (ICL) in the fourth quarter of 2006. ICL posted a 30% year-on-year increase in operating income to $147.7 million (€110.8 million), driven by an upturn in its fertilizer business. Sales rose by 8.3% to $839.6 million, reflecting price increases in most product areas, a return to strong potash sales in India, China and Brazil and the contribution of phosphates business Astaris, which ICL acquired in November 2005.
