Revenue rose 4.2% to $508 million.
The biggest change in revenue was due to shifts in the structure of cargo turnover, which provided a $53.3-million boost to revenue, mainly from a near doubling of grain handling (primarily utilizing capacity of Novorossiysk Grain Terminal), addition of over two million tonnes of iron ore handling and a 1-million tonne increase in diesel fuel shipments at the IPP terminal.
