Daewoo Clinches $531m Order

Wednesday, June 28, 2006
Bloomberg has reported that Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., said it has received a $531m order to build container ships for a customer in Panama. The Seoul-based company will build an unspecified number of container ships and deliver them by April 30, 2010, Daewoo said in a regulatory filing to the Korea Exchange today, without revealing the identity of the customer. Daewoo and South Korea's six other shipbuilders, which built 38 percent of vessels delivered globally in 2005, said this month they may raise prices of ships to take advantage of record orders and protect their profits from increasing steel costs. Daewoo Shipbuilding earned a net income of 19.9 billion won in May, compared with a loss of 19.9 billion won in the same month last year, the company said. Sales last month rose 4.6 percent to 383.1 billion won from last year, Daewoo Shipbuilding said today. Source: Bloomberg
