Belgium's GIMV makes Q3 profit from asset sales

BRUSSELS, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Belgian investment group GIMV said it booked a positive result in its fiscal third quarter as profits from divestments outweighed the impact on a weak economy on its portfolio.

The group said on Thursday that the tough economic conditions had negatively impacted the value of its portfolio of companies in the quarter.

As a result of the divestments, which included its stake in Devgen after a bid from Syngenta, the group’s equity value increased by about 1 percent during the quarter to 980.8 million euros ($1.31 billion).
