The Bulgarian Chimimport Holding group has registered a 3% growth in net profits for the first half of 2010 notwithstanding greatly decreased revenue for the period.

Chimimport has registered a 20% drop in income due to shrinking in its non-financial activities, especially in transportation, which has shrunk 14%.

Costs of Chimimort have also dropped with almost 20%, contributing to the marginal increase in net profit.

In 2010 Chimimport payed for the first time dividend on its privileged shares issued in 2009.
