Jelena Belova, Rima Mickiene


Post-crisis period, 2010-2013, in Eastern Coast Baltic Seaports starts in different ways, related to the geopolitical changes in the region. Results of financial key performance analysis define the actual financial situation of the maritime company. It is necessary for its owners, shareholders and investors. A good financial situation of company creates an opportunity to attract new port service users, cargo owners, shipping lines, and investors. The financial analysis of key performance indicators acts as guidelines: for the port authority in order to develop an investment strategy; for the maritime industry – in their business development.
