LUKA KOPER, d.d., Koper
Press conference, 9th July 2009, 11.30 AM
The company Luka Koper, d.d. publishes the first information about the business performance for the past period.
The decrease in global economic activity reflected also on the operations of Luka Koper. The total maritime throughput in first six months of 2009 faced a 20% decrease compared to the same period last year. As a result a 10% decrease in operating revenues was registered in the period January - May 2009 compared to the same period in 2008. In addition, operating costs increased by 4% in the mentioned period, in particular labour costs which are result of the signed Collective agreement and depreciation, which is result of intensive investment activities. The Management Board has therefore adopted several measures in order to improve business performance, especially with the optimization of costs and working processes as well as with new marketing projects.
Detailed information will be published after the press conference.
This message will be available on company's website from 9rh July 2009 onwards.
