CMA CGM Group’s operational activity has sharply improved since the beginning of the year.
Over the first quarter, volumes carried rose by 21 per cent over those of the year-earlier period, while EBITDA stood at $ 380 million, up by $ 640 million year-on-year and in line with first-quarter 2008.
Quarterly revenue was up by 29 per cent at $ 3.2 billion. The second-quarter results would exceed first-quarter figures, according to Exim News Service.
At the same time, the Group has a few additional weeks to complete its capital increase with external investors. The discussions, which are well advanced, require the preparation of particularly complex documents.
