Abu Dhabi’s Aldar Q4 Net Profit Rises 61%

The company’s annual profit was Dhs2.24 billion in 2014, almost flat compared to Dhs2.25 billion in 2013.



Abu Dhabi’s Aldar Properties reported a 61 percent rise in fourth-quarter net profit on Thursday, beating an analyst forecast.

The state-run builder of Abu Dhabi’s Formula One circuit made a profit attributable to shareholders of Dhs696.3 million ($189.57 million) in the three months to Dec. 31, according to Reuters calculations based on a company statement.

This compares with a profit of Dhs432.6 million in the corresponding period of 2013.

SICO Bahrain forecast Aldar would make a quarterly profit of Dhs462.4 million.

Aldar’s fourth-quarter revenue was Dhs1.37 billion. This was up from Dhs1.33 billion a year earlier, according to Reuters calculations.

The company’s annual profit was Dhs2.24 billion in 2014, a bourse filing said. This compares with a profit of Dhs2.25 billion in 2013.

State-owned fund Mubadala Development Co owns 30 per cent of Aldar, Reuters data shows.

Aldar merged with rival Abu Dhabi developer Sorouh Real Estate in June 2013.
