The company said core earnings amounted to HK$453 million for the year to December, up from HK$384 million in 2011. Taking into account HK$2.11 billion in revaluation gains from investment properties, net profit was HK$2.56 billion last year, more than triple the HK$781 million recorded in 2011.

Unacceptable

During a recent rip to Macau we noticed that little has been done to eliminate the TurboJet ticket touts since the problem was initially brought to light sometime last year.

We noticed that several touts (the same people as last year) were busy selling, each with a fairly thick wad of tickets in hand at a mark-up price of at least three times.

Turbojet to turn on power

Turbojet can continue Tony Cruz and Felix Coetzee's flying start to the season by taking this evening's fourth event at Sha Tin.

Racing legend Cruz shares top spot in the trainer standings with another local success story Francis Lui.

They've sent out nine winners and have both handled the transition from riding to training like ducks to water.

Vessel just a catamaran

I refer to a report 'Turbo Cat in gunboat collision' (South China Morning Post, August 19), and wish to clarify that the vessel involved was not a Turbo Cat as stated.

Turbo Cat is the service name that our company has been using since 1994 for high speed ferry services between Hong Kong/Macau and Hong Kong/Shenzhen.
