Danish offshore carrier A2sea took a huge step back in the latest fiscal year, delivering a deficit after tax of USD 15.7 million, according to the interim report published Tuesday. In comparison, the offshore carrier delivered a profit of USD 35.0 million in 2014.
The significant decline is primarily attributed to A2Sea's cable company CT Offshore, which A2sea is in the process of liquidating.
