Bahri announce the Interim Consolidated Financial Results for the 12-month period ended 31st December, 2012.

The National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) report that Net profit, for the 12-months totaled SAR 500.4 million compared to SAR 287.7 million for the corresponding period for the year 2011, an increase of 74 %.  However, Net profit, for the fourth quarter was down and totaled SAR 73 million compared to SAR 113.3 million for the corresponding quarter for the year 2011, a decrease of 35.6%.

The CEO of Bahri, Eng. Saleh Nasser Al-Jasser attributed the decrease in the net profit during the fourth quarter compared with the same corresponding period of the year 2011 to the decrease in Petredec Limited profit (Bahri owns 30.3% share) as well as the deceasing in net income of The National Chemical Carriers Ltd. Co. (NCC) (Bahri owns 80 % share).

He also traced the increase in the net income during the 12-months period compared with the same corresponding period of the year 2011 to the improvement in the Oil and Gas sector and General Cargo sector as well as profiting from Bahri Dry Bulk (BDB) which started its operating from this year. Also, lower fuel consumption cost due to Bahri having adopted a new policy of slow steaming of all vessels.

In related news, Bahri also announced the sale of one of its general cargo vessels, the Saudi Abha for scrap. This sale is expected to generate net profit about SAR(21) million after deducting its book value and all expenses associated with the sale, and the financial impact of this transaction will be reflected in the 1st Quarter of 2013 results.

The Company had previously announced the signing of six ship building contracts to acquire six new general cargo vessels to replace the older fleet in this sector. Three sister ships to Saudi Abha remain to be sold in sequence coinciding with the delivery of the first of these 4 new ships.
