DUBAI, (Reuters) – Dubai-based port operator DP World’s first-half profit from continuing operations after tax more than doubled to $287 million, the company said on Thursday.

The company repeated its outlook that it expected to meet expectations and said that so far in the second half of the year it had outperformed the market.

DP World, the world’s fourth-largest container port operator, said last month it expected to meet 2008 expectations as emerging market business mitigates a global economic downturn.

Shares in the firm have fallen 34 percent so far this year.
