IGH's net profit for the first nine months of 2007 rose to 36.3 million kuna ($7.2 million/4.9 million euro) from 24.1 million kuna a year earlier and was in line with company projections, IGH (Institut Gradjevinarstva Hrvatske), said in a statement to the Zagreb Stock Exchange. IGH is one of the 30 members of the 30-share index Crobex of the Zagreb bourse.

IGH’s share closed at 12,949 kuna on Monday, down 7.07%, on relatively strong turnover of 11.3 million kuna, following a string of record highs in the past few weeks.
