ALL Argentina had a weak quarter impacted by the overall inflationary environment and the energy shortages in the country. Cold weather boosted residential demand for natural gas and electricity prompting the Argentine Government to restrict supplies to industrial sectors. The shortage negatively impacted our client’s volume and limited operating hours on the ports we serve, increasing our transit times. As a result, volume decreased 1.1% in the 2Q07 and 0.6% in the 1H07. Salary increases driven by difficult overall inflationary environment increased our cost base in ALL Argentina.
