Boskalis hit by completed Suez-project in third quarter

Dutch Boskalis delivered a lower operating profit in the third quarter. To be expected after a very strong first half of 2015, notes the company.

Drilling and offshore company Boskalis, whose competitors include Maersk salvage and towage unit Svitzer, noted a decline in its operating profit for the third quarter after the "exceptionally high quarterly results" achieved in the first half of 2015.

The company does not publish specific numbers on revenue and profits, but informs in a financial statement on Friday that revenue was slightly higher than the average noted in the first half of the year, adding that the operating profit decreased compared to the first six months of 2015 and the third quarter 2014.
