André Goedée, CEO of Dockwise commented: "Looking at the performance of Dockwise in 2007, I am encouraged in my belief that the company continues to perform in line with management's expectations. This is particularly important as the current performance provides momentum for the strategic changes of which the implementation started in 2005 and to which management has committed itself. The continuous improvement of the quality of Project Management with the new organizational structure has largely contributed in managing risk in 2007 and in successful bidding for large projects. As clients find more comfort in the new skill set of Dockwise, I believe this to be a strong support in achieving our results in 2008 and filling our backlog for the years beyond 2008."
