Al Safat Investment Kuwait - More Detail on 1H10 KD1.1 Million Loss

Additional detail on ASIK's 1H10 financial performance via an article in Al Watan quoting ASIK's Vice Chairman Mohammad Ali Al Naqi.

While the Company did indeed have KD4 million in profit on the sale by one of its subsidiaries of an investment (in the PRC), this was overwhelmed by mark to markets on Kuwaiti shares.  The VC noted the significant decline on the KSE in 2Q10 as well as KD2.48 million of precautionary provisions on   أرصدة مدينة  .

I'm translating these as "debit balances" and presume they relate to receivables of some sort as opposed to investments.   And I'd certainly welcome any comments from readers who either would like to confirm or amend that translation.
