In 2018, Agility reported a net profit of KD 81.1 million, or 56.06 fils per share, an increase of 18.4% from 2017. Revenue for the year reached KD 1,550.2 million, and EBITDA was KD 154.8 million, increases of 10.2% and 14.5%, respectively. Cash flow from operations has been healthy and growing, while free cash flow has been limited as a result of capital expenditure that led to increased borrowing to fund strategic investments.
“Agility continues to invest in its future by building more than 1 million sqm of new warehousing and industrial facilities across the Middle East and Africa; building, through one its subsidiaries, the $1.2 billion Reem Mall mega project in Abu Dhabi; and investing more than $100 million in Shipa, its digital logistics platform,” said Agility Vice Chairman and CEO Tarek Sultan.
“As always, we thank our shareholders, customers, employees, and partners for their trust and support in Agility. We look forward to an even better 2019,” Sultan said.
Agility builds durable, efficient supply chains that power businesses and drive trade, creating access to new opportunities.
Agility is one of the world’s largest integrated logistics providers with more than 22,000 employees and operations in 100 countries.
