Daewoo Announces 1Q Results

Thursday, May 03, 2001
South Korea's Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering said it earned 100.4 billion won ($76.34 million) in EBT (earnings before taxes) during the first quarter on sales of 682.7 billion won. In the previous October-December quarter, the world's second largest shipyard made 76.5 billion won of EBT on sales of 781.5 billion won. The year-on-year comparison was not available because the shipbuilder, along with another unit, was spun off from Daewoo Heavy Industries last October. Daewoo said in a statement it had received shipbuilding orders worth $2.28 billion during the first four months of this year, about 91 percent of its $2.5 billion target for the year. The company's statement said EBT would reach 221.6 billion won this year, up from an earlier target of 153.3 billion won. A senior executive said last month a flood of LNG carrier orders and dollar-denominated payments skewed towards delivery had greatly helped the shipyard's financial status. Daewoo officials had said graduation from a creditor workout plan could be possible by end-June, six months ahead of target, as the shipyard's financial heath had recovered sufficiently to repay debts. The former shipbuilding unit of the bankrupt Daewoo Group, along with 11 other Daewoo firms, was rescued by creditors in August 1999 after its stake investment in sister firms turned sour. - (Reuters)
