Polish supermarket and retail chain Eldorado has forecast a rise in 2002 sales to PlZ727m (US$173.8m) from PlZ571m in 2001. Net profits are expected to climb from PlZ4.5m to PlZ10m. The group said the reported fall in net profits last year was attributed largely to the cancellation of one major contract which had generated nearly 30% of revenues. Depressed margins and expenses associated with launching a logistics centre in Lublin also held back profits.
