COSCO 2013 Net Profit Falls 71%

February 24, 2014

Chinese shipbuilder COSCO Corp (Singapore) Ltd on Monday reported a 71 percent fall in full-year 2013 net profit, due to lower profit contributions from ship building and marine engineering segments.


COSCO Corp, a subsidiary of state-owned maritime industry giant China Ocean Shipping (Group) Co, said its full-year net profit stood at S$30.6 million ($24.14 million), below the Thomson Reuters SmartEstimate of S$43.78 million.


The company did not state its fourth-quarter results. In the first nine months of the year, its net profit slumped 68 percent to S$26 million.


The shipbuilder said its order book was at $7.8 billion, up from $7.2 billion a quarter earlier.
