The company has demonstrated its ability to generate strong cash flow

Atlas Iron Ltd (ASX:AGO) is starting to build some momentum, with financial year 2017 results highlighting growing revenue, and importantly reducing debt.

The full year results have revenue up 11% to $871.1 million compared to the previous year, helped by a rising iron ore price.

Net operating cash flow jumped 394.5% to $153.8 million.

The debt reduction strategy continues, with the Term Loan B down 43% to $103 million.

Iron ore shipments fell 0.7% to 14.4 million tonnes, as additional production at Mt Webber replaced product from Wodgina which closed.

The C1 cash cost increased 2.9% to $35 per tonne, which Atlas said increased due to increased haulage costs from Mt Webber.
