Group Earnings before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) for the first quarter were QR 74 Million, on a like-for-like basis excluding profits from discontinued operations in the first quarter 2022, this was an increase of QR 4 Million or 5% over the same period last year 2022.
Group Net Profit for the first quarter was QR 12 Million, impacted by higher Finance Costs due to the interest rate increases that began in 2022, but only marginally lower on a like-for-like basis excluding profits from discontinued operations as compared to the same period last year 2022.
The business-to-business (B2B) divisions in Qatar were impacted by the economic slowdown in the first quarter 2023 following the very successful FIFA World Cup 2022. As economic activity begins to increase as the year progresses, these B2B divisions are anticipated to show further growth in Revenue and Net Profit compared to last year 2022.
