Aug. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Shell Mauritius Ltd., a fuel retailer, said profit declined 40 percent in the second quarter through June as operating costs increased.

Net income retreated to 56.9 million rupees ($2 million) compared with 94.9 million rupees a year earlier, it said in a statement published on the website of the Port Louis-based Stock Exchange of Mauritius today. Sales increased 38 percent to 3.04 billion rupees, it said.
