The amount of tangible and intangible assets has fallen by 10.4 million euros. This net amount is made up as follows:



Depreciation & amortisation -40.8
Retirals/write-downs -3.6


The investments are made up mainly of the following components:

  • Investments in docks (12.2 million euros)
  • Buildings (3.7 million euros)
  • Tugs (9.4 million euros)

The long-term trade accounts receivable are concession fees for which a schedule of payments over a longer period has been agreed. As last year, the other long-term accounts receivable are a partial contribution by the Port Authority for a pre-ground bank (land reserve).

The trade accounts receivable have remained fairly stable, up by just 2.1 million euros. Other accounts receivable, have risen sharply since no subsidies were paid out in 2010 under the terms of the Port Decree. The amounts for the first three quarters of 2010 (20.3 million euros) were received in February 2011.

Thanks to the positive result overall and the positive cashflow for the financial year, the balance of cash at bank and in hand and the current investments has risen from 172.1 million euros to 195.6 million euros.



The equity increases because out of the total net result of 80.1 million euros, 67.3 million euros was appropriated to equity and 12.8 million euros was appropriated as profit to be distributed.

The provisions has increased overall by 7.3% as a result of the higher provision for environmental risks.

The financial debts were repaid in 2010 according to the agreed due dates. There were also no opportunities to reimburse early certain debts at financially advantageous terms.

The amounts payable within 1 year have decreased, from 94.2 million euros at the end of 2009 to 75.6 million euros at the end of 2010. According to the loan repayment schedule, the amounts due to be repaid in 2011 are significantly less (4.2 million euros compared with 15.2 million euros). In addition, an amount of 6 million euros was effectively repaid to the City of Antwerp in 2010 under the terms of obligations arising from the Protocol concerning the “Eilandje” area. Like last year, the profit of 12.8 million euros to be distributed, has been included under the heading “Other amounts payable.”
