ZIM - light at the end of the tunnel

Zim reported positive earnings (EBITDA) for 2012 compared to losses in 2011. The modest turn around still represents a significant loss to shareholders. A much smaller player than the Maersks and and Hapags of the word, Zim is still an important Halifax customer.

Zim had to cancel a number of ship orders and take penalties, and defer other orders for several years up to 2016. Freight rates were up a bit too, which helped the bottom line. Zim has also made agreements with the banks to reschedule debt, and will submit a 5 year plan by April 30.
