John Keells Holdings (JKH) said on Thursday that pre-tax profit for the six months to September 30, 2008 rose 27 % to Rs. 3.01 billion.

It said profit attributable to equity holders of JKH for the first half of FY 2008-09 decreased by a marginal 0.2% to Rs. 1.85 billion because of the one-off tax charge as a result of the Supreme Court judgment relating to Lanka Marine Services (Private) Ltd (LMS). Group revenue for the six months rose by 20 % to Rs. 21.82 billion.

The statement said JKH Ltd, at a company level, made a net profit of Rs.2.87 billion.
