As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, last year, this well known company recorded sales growth of 35.9 million kuna when compared to the previous year, as well as growth of physical indicators of 38,000 ship days, according to an annual report released on Tuesday. Based on the daily connection service, there was an increase of 22.6 million kuna or 67 percent when compared to the comparable period.
Moreover, the third quarter (in some segments) exceeded pre-pandemic 2019, the company pointed out. Last year, a positive gross financial result in the amount of 17.1 million kuna and EBITDA in the amount of 83.7 million kuna were also achieved, which is a marked increase of 13.3 million kuna.
“The results we managed to acheive for the year 2021 are above our expectations, especially given the uncertainty and unknowns that marked the previous year and with which we entered 2021. The modification and adjustment of business processes to these new circumstances and the results of our work so far primarily reflected on maintaining financial stability and ACI liquidity,” said the President of the Management Board, Kristijan Pavic.
The extension of concessions is a prerequisite for further strategic investments and the expansion of ACI Marina’s investment portfolio, which in 2021 amounted to a total of 44 million kuna. 23.5 million kuna was invested in the reconstruction of the breakwater in the ACI Marina Korcula, while 7.9 million kuna was invested in infrastructure works in the ACI Marina Dubrovnik.
Significant investments in infrastructure and services were realised at ACI Marina Vodice (2.9 million kuna), ACI Marina Skradin (1.5 million kuna) and ACI Marina Trogir (1.4 million kuna).
In the coming period, the largest investment in nautical tourism in the history of the Republic of Croatia will follow, ad together with partners it will start building the ACI Marina Rijeka.
