NETHERLANDS: Laurus sees flat H1 loss
Beleaguered supermarket company Laurus is remaining tight-lipped on its full year expectations after posting a static H1 net loss of €44m (US$43.6m). According to a report in Het Financieele Dagblad, H1 revenues at the Dutch retailer were buffeted by ongoing losses in Spain and Belgium and high overhead costs in Holland.
