N/A • China COSCO Holdings reported an 8.4% drop in net profit to RMB968.7 million for the six months ended 30th June 2007. The drop in earnings was mainly due to lower contribution from container leasing after it disposed of 600,082 TEUs of container in June 2006.

• Turnover surged 17.0% y-o-y to RMB26.8 billion in 1H07, mainly driven by the container shipping segment amid higher shipping volume and a rise in overall freight rates. Cost of services rose 19.0% y-o-y to RMB24.7 billion on a surge in operating volume and higher bunker, fuel costs and port charges as well as rising inland cargo transhipment fee in the US. In fact, the rise in cost of bunkers and fuel consumed was well contained at 3.5% y-o-y during the first half.

• Share of profits from jointly controlled entities and associates grew 5.8% and 25.1% y-o-y, respectively, thanks to stronger profit from container terminals that China COSCO held interests amid rising throughput, as well as a higher contribution from Shanghai Pudong Terminal after the Group raised its interest in the associate.
