While commenting on these results, Philippe Berterottière, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GTT, stated that: "In a challenging market, GTT experienced very robust commercial activity during the first half of the year with 13 vessel orders, thereby contributing to the reconstruction of our order book. The services business has grown significantly in its various elements. Operationally, we continued our development efforts by providing the market with new technologies intended for related segments, such as LPG transportation and marine gravity based storage. The margin levels achieved during H1 2017 demonstrate a good control of expenses at all levels of the income statement. These performances have enabled us to confirm our revenues, net margin and dividend outlook for the whole of the 2017 financial year."
