Slovenské Lodenice, a shipbuilder located in Komárno, made a gross profit of only 11.2 million Sk last year, 60 million Sk lower than in 1995, company officials announced. However, the company's sales of 3.41 billion Sk were 26 percent higher than in 1995, officials added.

Last year, Slovenské Lodenice invested 115.8 million Sk, of which 75 percent went towards ship building technology. The company plans to construct 15 ships this year, of which one will be in Cupertino with the Yugoslavian shipbuilder Sava. Its sales should remain at 3.4 billion Sk this year, and profit should grow to 83 million Sk, Lodenice's managers said.
