SLOVENIA: Pivovarna Lasko sees H1 figures leap
Pivovarna Lasko has posted a healthy leap in its results for the first half of this year.
The brewer, which is the largest in Slovenia, said yesterday (23 August) that net profit for the first six months of this year rose to EUR22.15m (US$30.18m) from EUR6.41m in the corresponding half a year earlier.
The increase came on the back of growing sales for the period, which reached EUR250.68m from EUR133.83m in H1 2006.
Late last year, Lasko said net profit for the first nine months of 2006 dipped by 3.3%, coming in at EUR32.42m for the period. Sales, however, were up by 1.6% to EUR209.48m.
