Hanjin Shipping Sees $59.3M Loss

Thursday, February 01, 2001
Hanjin Shipping said it saw a net loss of 74.5 billion won ($59.3 million) in 2000 against a 36.8 billion won net profit in 1999. A Hanjin official said the depreciation of the won against the dollar last year was behind the loss, costing the company around 260 billion won. The won shed 11 percent against dollar in 2000. Hanjin, a shipping unit of South Korea's Hanjin Group, posted a recurring loss of 97.5 billion won last year, against a 61.4 billion won profit a year ago, with the won depreciation again a major factor. Before accounting for the effects of the won depreciation, the recurring profit amounted to around 150 billion won.
