Croatian marina operator ACI Marinas has reported revenues of HRK 143m (US$21.4m) for the first nine months of 2016. The company managed to increase its revenues from daily berthing by 9% to HRK 43m (US$6.4m). Monthly and annual berthing revenues, as well as leasing and other services, represented the remainder, the firm said.
ACI Marinas says that it plans to launch a new investment shortly and upgrade its marina in Rovinj, on the Croatian Adriatic Sea.
From January to August 2016, ACI Marinas closed 87,476 daily berthing deals, and 3,491 annual berthing deals with its customers, according to the statement.
In total, the company operates 22 marinas in Croatia. ACI’s shareholders include the Croatian Treasury, which holds a stake of 74.5%, and Turkey’s Dogus Group, which has 10.9% of the shares in the operator.
Earlier this year, the Croatian government decided to remove eight major companies from its list of state-owned firms that are of strategic importance for the country and as such cannot be privatised. ACI Marinas was one of the companies, and the move paved the way for its potential privatisation.
