During the year under review your Company's main source of revenue was generatedfrom vessel repairs.
The fortunes of the Company are solely dependent on repair of vessels in the Offshoreand Shipping sector.
Considering both these sectors have been going through difficult times with norecovery expected in the immediate future. The Company too will in all likelihood facetrying times in the near future.
The Company's management continues to try to identify new customers to provide servicesand though this has yielded some positive results in the past customers are reluctant tospend vast sums of monies in repairs especially since these revenues have been slashed tolevels of operating costs or even below.
