Milaha Maritime & Logistics’ revenue decreased by QAR 14 million with net profit remaining flat at QAR 65 million against the same period in 2018. Stronger performance in our port business offset declines in our logistics and shipyard units.
Milaha Gas & Petrochem’s revenue decreased by QAR 5 million, with net profit increasing by QAR 181 million, driven by a reduction in vessel impairments compared to 2018, as well as improvements in market shipping rates in the sectors in which we operate.
Milaha Offshore’s revenue increased by QAR 99 million, however the bottom line decreased by QAR 95 million. Despite strong operating performance and increase in operating profit, the segment’s results declined due to vessel impairments.
Milaha Capital’s revenue decreased by QAR 49 million and net profit by QAR 62 million, as a result of lower dividends and held for trading portfolio income.
Milaha Trading’s revenue decreased by QAR 9 million and bottom line decreased by QAR 5 million with a continued decline in heavy equipment sales being the main contributor to the lower results.
