Doprastav projects Sk392 million profit

ONE OF SLOVAKIA's biggest construction companies, Doprastav Bratislava, plans to close 2004 with a pre-tax profit of Sk392.4 million (€9.5 million), which would be more than a 40 percent growth year-on-year, SITA news agency reported.

Doprastav's general director, Dušan Mráz, told SITA that revenues should reach Sk9.5 billion (€230 million) and added value is estimated to climb to Sk1.6 billion (€40 million).

Doprastav closed the first six months of this year with a pre-tax profit of Sk176.9 million (€4.27 million), down over 20 percent year-on-year and revenues were Sk4 billion (€100 million).

Doprastav was established on January 1, 1994, after the transformation of the state-run Doprastav company. It employed 3,041 people on average during the first half of 2004. The average monthly wage rose by over 16 percent year-on-year to Sk19,916 (€481).
