Transcontainer Wary of H2

Rail group Transcontainer warned of an uncertain second half of 2012 on Thursday as it reported a quadrupling of full-year profit to 3.8 billion rubles ($129.29 million).

Transcontainer's revenue for 2011 increased 35.2 percent year on year to 30.8 billion rubles. Its profit reached 3.8 billion rubles from 928 million rubles last year.
