The Group achieved net profit attributable to equity holders of $12.0 million on turnover of $890.3 million in Q2 2013, 8.7% down on the same period last year.

Group turnover declined by 8.7% to $890.3 million in Q2 2013 from $975.3 million in Q2 2012 due to the decline in dry bulk shipping and shipyard revenue.

Turnover from shipyard operations decreased by 8.7% to $877.2 million in Q2 2013 from $960.8 million in Q2 2012 mainly due to lower revenue contribution from ship building and ship repair segments which more than offset the growth in revenue from marine engineering segment.

The Group delivered 7 bulk carriers in Q2 2013. Of these, COSCO Zhoushan shipyard delivered 4 bulk carriers, COSCO Dalian shipyard delivered 2 bulk carriers and COSCO Guangdong shipyard delivered 1 bulk carrier. In addition, COSCO Nantong shipyard delivered 2 tender rigs.

Turnover from dry bulk shipping and other businesses declined by 10.3% from $14.6 million in Q2 2012 to $13.1 million in Q2 2013 as the current short-term rates were lower than the more favorable charter rates received in Q2 2012.

Profitability
Gross profit decreased 18.4% from $117.4 million in Q2 2012 to $95.8 million in Q2 2013 mainly due to lower profit contributions from dry bulk shipping and shipyard operations.

Other income comprised gain from the disposal of scrap metal, interest income, net currency exchange gain/(loss) and others. Compared to Q2 2012, other income decreased by 53.0% to $16.0 million in Q2 2013 mainly due to lower sale value of scrap materials and an exchange loss of $10.2 million (Q2 2012: exchange loss of $1.4 million). The exchange loss of $10.2 million in Q2 2013 was mainly due to the strengthening of the Chinese Yuan against the United States Dollar.
