Net income rose 43 percent to $35.04 million on a 20 percent increase in turnover. A 19 percent growth in marine revenues, mostly due to growth in new building contracts, underpinned the strongly improved results.

Our strong financial position allows us to invest in training, IT, value added services and a true world-wide exclusive network of surveyors."
