The net profit for 2018 was up 74% to AED 52.4 million, compared to AED 30.2 million in 2017 despite continuing market challenges and pressure on selling prices.

The tender has been successfully awarded to the highest bidder for sum of AED 50 million (including VAT) of which AED 21.9 million recognized as other income during 2018.

Overall Group revenue in 2018 was AED 909.2 million, compared to AED 908.6 million the previous year. The direct costs decreased due to operational cost discipline.
