US document management services (DMS) company Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM) posted net profits of US$33mn during the fourth quarter, down 46% from US$61mn in the year-ago period, the company said in a statement.
The company attributed the decrease to a US$29mn goodwill impairment charge and a higher effective tax rate.
Meanwhile, Q4 revenues for the company inched up 1% year-on-year to US$789mn.
For full 2010, the company recorded a net loss of US$54mn, compared with a net profit of US$221mn the previous year.
Annual revenues reached US$3.13bn last year, up 4% compared with 2009.
