The numbers: Fourth-quarter profit decreased 30% to $50 million, or 43 cents a share, as revenue ascended 3.4% to $405 million. DPL's operating margin narrowed from 28% to 25%. It holds $75 million of cash and $1.3 billion of debt. Its return on equity, a measure of profitability, beats the industry average.
