MOSCOW. Aug 14 (Interfax) - Rosinter Restaurants LLC, the Moscow regional operating subsidiary for OJSC Rosinter Restaurant Holding , closed the first half of 2009 with net profit of 103 million rubles to Russian Accounting Standards (RAS), compared with losses of 59.5 million rubles in the same period of last year, the company said in an earnings report.

Revenue fell, by 3% year-on-year to 2.49 billion rubles, and gross profit edged down to 1.94 billion rubles from 1.96 billion rubles.
