Kuwait’s KIPCO On Track To Hit Revenue Goal

Net profit in the second quarter to June 30 rose 20 per cent to KD11.4 million ($40.4 million), the company said in a statement.

Kuwait Projects Co (KIPCO), the Gulf state’s largest privately owned investment company, said it was on track to hit its target of a double-digit rise in revenue this year after reporting an 18 per cent increase in the first half.

Net profit in the second quarter to June 30 rose 20 per cent to KD11.4 million ($40.4 million), the company said in a statement on Wednesday without giving a reason for the profit or revenue increases.

Arqaam Capital had expected KIPCO to make a profit of KD12 million in the quarter.

KIPCO, a major regional investment house with stakes in media, industrial, financial and real estate companies, said first-half revenue rose to KD289 million.

KIPCO is the majority owner of Middle Eastern pay-television business OSN. The parent firm said earlier this week an unnamed buyer had launched a full takeover bid for OSN, a deal that could prove to be one of the largest acquisitions of a regional business in recent years.
