Aug 21 (Reuters) - World number 4 iron ore miner Fortescue Metals Group Ltd has more than doubled its final dividend after posting a 113 percent jump in annual net profit on Monday.
Fortescue said the higher price for iron ore it mostly sells to China and lower operating costs boosted net profit to $2.1 billion in the year to June 30 from $985 million the previous year, in line with a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S forecast.
The company declared a A$0.25 per share final dividend, above its final dividend of A$0.12 a year ago.
