Lianyungang Port issues profit warning for 2015

Lianyungang Port issues profit warning for 2015
China’s Jiangsu Lianyungang Port Co has warned of a significant fall in profit for its 2015 financial year ended 30 December 2015.

The Shanghai-listed port company announced that it expects to record a 45-50% plunge in profit for 2015 compared to 2014.

In 2014, the company made a gain of RMB103.71m ($15.74m), pointing to a projected profit of RMB46.67m to RMB51.86m last year.

“Due to the macroeconomic impact from the world and China, the port’s cargo volumes in 2015 recorded a visible fall compared to 2014. The slowing port business has also led to weakened operating results,” Jiangsu Lianyungang Port stated.
