In a turbulent year, dominated by economic stagnation, international political tensions and declining stock exchanges, Royal Boskalis Westminster nv achieved excellent results over 2001. Turnover increased by 13% to well over â‚¬ 1 billion and the net profit per share increased by 15% to â‚¬ 3.00.
The world market for dredging services and wet infrastructure keeps good prospects. Boskalis acquired new orders for over â‚¬ 1 billion in 2001 and executes a program of further fleet renewal and expansion. The market position in the Middle East, where much work will be executed, was further strenghtened through a 30% participation in Archirodon. For 2002 a net profit increase of 5-10% is expected.
