Transalta Renewables Inc. reported second-quarter 2017 comparable EBITDA of C$98 million, up from C$89 million in the same quarter of 2016.

Second-quarter revenues more than doubled to C$112 million in 2017 from C$52 million in 2016.

The company posted second-quarter 2017 net earnings attributable to common shareholders of C$22 million, or 10 Canadian cents per share, compared to a net loss of C$15 million, or 7 Canadian cents per share, in the corresponding 2016 quarter.
