Dubai’s Emaar Properties posts 45% slump in net profit for Q1-Q3 2020

The developer’s revenue figures for Q1-Q3 2020 totaled Dhs13.37bn

Dubai developer Emaar Properties recorded Dhs2.43bn in net profit for the first nine months of 2020, slumping 45 per cent from Dhs4.44bn recorded during a year-earlier period.

Meanwhile, the developer’s revenue figures for Q1-Q3 2020 totaled Dhs13.37bn, down 24.1 per cent from Dhs17.63bn in the same period last year.

Emaar’s international operations delivered property sales worth Dhs3.43bn in the first nine months of 2020, a growth of 9 per cent compared to the same period in 2019. UAE property sales, amounting to Dhs4.35bn also recorded a month-on-month increase.

“Our performance in the third quarter demonstrates our continued resilience during these challenging conditions,” noted Mohamed Alabbar, founder of Emaar. “Covid-19 has hugely impacted businesses all over the world, but the plans and strategies that we adopted during the early stages of the pandemic, which included a restructuring of our businesses into leaner operations, showed our great agility in dealing with the crisis.”

“Looking to the future, I am cautiously optimistic about the remainder of the year and I am confident that things will be in better shape across most sectors by summer 2021. Meanwhile, we continue to maintain our focus on meeting and exceeding our customer expectations, delivering long-term, sustainable results across our business units, and strengthening our organisation and services for the future ahead.”
