Ashdod Port To Pay ILS400mn Dividend To Government

Israel’s Ashdod Port is to pay a dividend of between ILS350 and ILS400mn (US$95.32mn and US$108.94mn) to the government, after it posted record profits in 2009 and 2010. The port reported a profit of ILS381mn (US$103.77mn) in 2009 and ILS180mn (US$49.02mn) in 2010. Under Government Companies Authority rules, a state-owned company must pay at least half of its net profit as a dividend as a condition for allocating bonuses to employees. The Ashdod Port and Haifa Port are not expected to be privatised until after the sale of the Eilat Port.

Zim Plunges Into The Red On Overcapacity And High Bunker Price Zim, which is part of the Ofer Brothers Group’s holding company, Israel Corp, has released its results for the second quarter of 2011, which show that the company made a net loss. BMI notes that the company is following a pattern we have seen during 2011 with other major container shipping companies’ results; although volumes are rising, the low rates in the sector, caused by overcapacity in the market, have driven down bottom lines. To make matters worse, shipping companies have had to contend with increased operating costs as a result of elevated bunker prices since the onset of the Arab Spring. Key Risks To Outlook Continued political turmoil in Israel’s Middle Eastern neighbours, especially within Egypt and Syria, Further weakness in the economies of the US and eurozone could depress external demand and constrain economic growth.
