Eng. Yasser Zaghloul, group CEO, added: “Our strategic expansion to verticals such as civil and port development; downstream, onshore, renewable energy, energy transition as well as subsea and decommissioning, among others will continue to power our growth.”

He added: “We continue to monitor the market situation closely, particularly in terms of exchange rate fluctuations, and we are looking to implement impactful strategies to address the fluctuating price of raw materials. In this, our strong fundamentals and flexible business model is our strength, enabling us to overcome challenges and mitigate their impact. We are also evaluating the economic trends in the markets in which we operate in, especially Egypt, and working relentlessly to strengthen our business model in line with the changes in the market dynamics. This commitment to be proactive and responsive to market trends underpins our strong financial results.”
