The company’s unaudited financial statements, released today on Muscat Securities Market (MSM), show a decline in revenues from RO 40.77 million, to RO 34.77 million. And a decrease in profit before tax from RO 9.2 million in 2017, to RO 8.8 million in the first half of 2018.

However, the decrease in income tax expenses by 58.8% from RO3.7 million to RO1.5 million, reflected positively on the company’s net profit by 33.1%.

In May, the company’s operations in Salalah were affected by tropical Cyclone Mekunu. “Our water production plant is temporarily shut down due to a severe worsening of sea conditions during the cyclone”, the company said then.
