Tanker firm founders on expansion doubts

What's down Gulf Navigation. Profits sprung a leak last year, but investors appeared more concerned that the tanker company's expansion efforts are foundering.

Profits for Gulf Navigation sprung a leak last year, but investors appeared more concerned that the tanker company's expansion efforts are foundering. Gulf Navigation, a UAE oil and chemicals tanker company, disclosed an 82 per cent drop in profits yesterday. The sharp fall - largely the result of a decrease in global shipping rates - was accurately forecast by analysts and appeared to already have been priced into the stock because it jumped 7.1 per cent to Dh0.60 yesterday.

The larger question is when will Gulf Navigation start adding new vessels to its fleet of 15 tankers, either through acquisition or commissioning construction at the shipyard. The company is sitting on a pile of cash and has repeatedly discussed ambitious plans to spend it. In December 2008, the company's chairman Abdullah al Shuraim said he was plotting a number of expansions in the coming year, and last November the chief executive Per Wistof announced the firm was in talks with an unnamed company to buy four petrochemical carriers.

The firm said yesterday it was now looking to 2010 "as a year of expansion". But investors are not so sure, said Kareem Murad, the vice president of logistics and transport at Shuaa Capital. "The problem with Gulf Navigation is that they are still in the growth stage," he said. "For the time being their carriers are not yet in, which poses a lot of pressure on them." Gulf Navigation, which moves crude oil and chemicals to markets across the world, reported net income last year was Dh26.6 million, down from Dh148m in 2008.

Shipping firms across the world last year fell victim to lower rates and an oversupply of vessels. Gulf Navigation's stock has absorbed its share of these market woes: it has decreased steadily since October 12, when a major client cancelled a chartering contract. @Email:cstanton@thenational.ae

Other ways to buy used products in the UAE

UAE insurance firm Al Wathba National Insurance Company (AWNIC) last year launched an e-commerce website with a facility enabling users to buy car wrecks.

Bidders and potential buyers register on the online salvage car auction portal to view vehicles, review condition reports, or arrange physical surveys, and then start bidding for motors they plan to restore or harvest for parts.

Physical salvage car auctions are a common method for insurers around the world to move on heavily damaged vehicles, but AWNIC is one of the few UAE insurers to offer such services online.

For cars and less sizeable items such as bicycles and furniture, Dubizzle is arguably the best-known marketplace for pre-loved.

Founded in 2005, in recent years it has been joined by a plethora of Facebook community pages for shifting used goods, including Abu Dhabi Marketplace, Flea Market UAE and Arabian Ranches Souq Market while sites such as The Luxury Closet and Riot deal largely in second-hand fashion.

At the high-end of the pre-used spectrum, resellers such as Timepiece360.ae, WatchBox Middle East and Watches Market Dubai deal in authenticated second-hand luxury timepieces from brands such as Rolex, Hublot and Tag Heuer, with a warranty.

The chef's advice

Troy Payne, head chef at Abu Dhabi’s newest healthy eatery Sanderson’s in Al Seef Resort & Spa, says singles need to change their mindset about how they approach the supermarket.

“They feel like they can’t buy one cucumber,” he says. “But I can walk into a shop – I feed two people at home – and I’ll walk into a shop and I buy one cucumber, I’ll buy one onion.”

Mr Payne asks for the sticker to be placed directly on each item, rather than face the temptation of filling one of the two-kilogram capacity plastic bags on offer.

The chef also advises singletons not get too hung up on “organic”, particularly high-priced varieties that have been flown in from far-flung locales. Local produce is often grown sustainably, and far cheaper, he says.
