Minoan Profits Fall 82 Percent

Wednesday, February 28, 2001
Greek ferry operator Minoan Lines said profit in 2000 fell 82 percent to 3.0 billion drachmas versus 16.8 billion in 1999. "The difference in the level of net profit this year is due to the extraordinary gains from the sale of old ships in 1999 which added around 8.5 billion drachmas," Minoan said. Sales in 2000 reached 46.6 billion drachmas against 46.3 billion in 1999, it said. - (Reuters)
