Riyadh – Mubasher: The interim financial statements of Yanbu National Petrochemical Company (Yansab) revealed a 54.9% annual drop in profits during the fiscal year ended 31 December 2019.
The net profits registered SAR 1.09 billion at the end of December last year when compared to SAR 2.41 billion in 2018, according to a bourse statement on Thursday.
