  • Net profit Rial 2.3 million (US$ 6m), impacted by series of extraordinary one-off items
  • Topaz Marine awarded Rial 175 million (US$ 455m) of charters in 2011

Renaissance is expected to post revenues of Rial 290 million (US$ 754m), up by more than 14% from Rial 253 million (US$ 658m) in 2010. However net profit in 2011, at Rial 2.3 million (US$ 5.9m), was impacted by a series of extraordinary items which the company has successfully addressed. The total cost of one-off items amounted to Rial 11.4 million (US$ 30m), but was partially offset by a Rial 3.1 million (US$ 8m) write-back of tax provisions, based on arecent tax ruling issued by the Supreme Court in Oman on foreign dividends. The company achieved strong revenue growth and operational performance for 2011.

Stephen Thomas, CEO of Renaissance, said, "The fundamental business of Renaissance and the opportunities for the company's future growth remain strong. In 2011, we addressed a series of one-off operational challenges and we are now well-placed to move forward and progress the company's dynamic growth strategy."
