LUKA KOPER, d.d., Koper
Share listing expansion is now complete
At its 13th AGM of 19th July 2007, the General Assembly of Luka Koper d.d. shareholders adopted a resolution on the conversion of 6,860,000 participatory preference shares with limited voting rights into ordinary shares.
Based on this resolution, the company's Management Board submitted an application for the expansion of the listing with the converted shares to the Ljubljana Stock Exchange. The Securities Board of the Exchange accepted the application, and the procedure at the central registry of dematerialised securities has now been successfully completed.
The total number of LKPG shares registered on the LJSE's prime market thus amounts to 14,000,000. The company's share capital remains unchanged and the expansion of the listing will have no affect whatsoever on the operations or performance of Luka Koper d.d. or its ambitious development plans.
In the first three months of 2008, the company has - with the same tonnage throughput volume - increased operating revenues by 13% on the same period last year, as well as generated € 7 million in net profits, which is 31% ahead of the first quarter of 2007. By way of its ambitious development plans, which anticipate the allocation of 140 million EUR in investments in 2008, Luka Koper d.d. is accomplishing its business strategy with the intention of becoming Central Europe's leading port and logistics services provider.
This information will be available on company's web site www.luka-kp.si from 20th May 2008 onwards.
