Nama Chemicals turns profitable in Q2, H1

Nama Chemicals’ net profits amounted to $6.2mln in the period between April and June


Riyadh: Saudi Arabia-based Nama Chemicals on Sunday reported turning to a profit during the second quarter of 2018, against incurring losses in the prior-year period.

Nama Chemicals’ net profits amounted to SAR 23.44 million in the period between April and June, against a net loss of SAR 2.76 million during Q2-17, according to a bourse statement.

Quarter-on-quarter, profits tumbled 16.76% in Q2-18, from SAR 28.16 million.

The Saudi chemicals firm attributed the positive turn in its second-quarter financials to a rise in the average of product prices, coupled with lower selling and marketing expenses.

At the level of the first six months of 2018, Nama Chemicals generated a profit of SAR 51.61 million, against suffering SAR 6.61 million in losses during H1-17.
