Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK) reported lower production at the end of the year, but the company was able to boost sales and earnings were helped by special items.

The oil-and-gas company said profit available to common stockholders rose to $486 million, or 49 cents a share, up from $309 million, or 33 cents a share, a year earlier.

The company's adjusted earnings of 21 cents a share surpassed the 18 cents a share that analysts expected, according to FactSet.

Sales rose 22% to $3.07 billion, beating expectations of $2.28 billion.

This year, Chesapeake said it expects flat capital spending compared to last year, of $2.3 billion to $2.5 billion. It projects average oil production of 116,000 barrels a day to 122,000 barrels a day.
