JAPAN's 'K' Line has announced that it has reduced its executive compensation by 10 per cent for six months to 'clarify our management stance towards recovery of our business performance during 2019 fiscal year'.

''K' Line and our group companies will continue to strive as one to improve profit and loss under the new management, being strongly determined to make every possible effort to again return to the black in 2019,' said the company statement.



The group's financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31 showed consolidated operating revenues of JPY836.7 billion (US$7.6 billion), operating loss of JPY24.7 billion yen, ordinary loss of JPY48.9 billion and loss attributable to owners of parent of JPY111.2 billion.



A new CEO, Yukikazu Myochin, took charge last month. 'K' Line first announced a series of 'fundamental structural reforms' in a bid to return to profitability.



Among the changes announced, 'K' Line said it will focus more on capes within its huge dry bulk fleet with smaller and medium sized ships facing the chop while its car carrier network facing a significant streamlining.
