China Shipbuilder Hit by Forex Losses on Contracts

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Yangzijiang Shipbuilding Holdings Ltd. China’s second-biggest private shipyard, posted a 7.6 percent decline in second-quarter profit because of higher tax and foreign exchange loss on contracts done in euros, reports Bloomberg.

Citing a company statement to the Singapore Stock Exchange, Bloomberg say that Net income in the three months ended June dropped to 812 million yuan ($133 million) from 878 million yuan a year ago, while sales rose 12 percent to 4.42 billion yuan.

Yangzijiang is among companies diversifying into offshore drilling and production as demand for new bulk vessels decline. The government has urged financial support, capacity control and a move into high-end products as part of a three-year plan to help the troubled shipbuilding industry after China Rongsheng Heavy Industries Group Holdings Ltd. (1101) , the country’s biggest private yard, sought financial assistance.
