DP World reports 10% increase in container volumes in first quarter of 2012
"Across our global portfolio of marine terminals, DP World has seen a 9.5% increase in gross volumes in the first quarter of 2012 handling 13.8 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units). Excluding the contribution from new capacity, like for like growth was 7.4%.
"This growth was driven by an excellent performance in our Asia Pacific and Indian Subcontinent region which reported 14.6% growth in volumes as new capacity across the region supported strong growth across our Asia Pacific portfolio. Growth in Europe, Middle East and Africa region was 4.4% with a good performance in the Middle East and Africa mitigating the ongoing challenging operating environment in Europe. The Americas and Australia region reported growth of 8.7% driven by a very strong performance in the Americas region.
"Jebel Ali, UAE has continued to deliver strong volume growth handling 3.2 million TEU in the first three months of the year, 8.5% ahead of the same period last year.
The voting results for all of the AGM resolutions will be available on the London Stock Exchange, Nasdaq Dubai and www.dpworld.com after the AGM.

Fiona Piper, DP World Limited:-
(1) Australia was de-consolidated on 11 March 2011 and therefore volumes since 12 March 2011 are no longer included in the consolidated figures. Excluding the deconsolidation, growth in the Americas and Australia region would have been 7.7% and growth across the global portfolio would have been 5.9%.
