Net profits for 2006’s second quarter increased 35 per cent to AED 24,643 million, from AED 18,268 million for the equivalent 2005 period.

Fadi Ghandour, CEO of ARAMEX, said: “These are excellent financial results. The figures demonstrate the value of the ambitious expansion and acquisition strategy we put in place last year and its ability to contribute to the company’s bottom line.

“The results are a clear indication of our success in integrating our newly acquired companies into the ARAMEX global network and culture built on the twin pillars of innovation and growth.

“The new acquisitions have clearly boosted ARAMEX’s financial performance while diversifying the company’s revenue streams. Twoway-Vanguard, a logistics and freight service provider with a strong network and client base across the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, was acquired during the second quarter and has contributed positively to these results.

“We are confident that the next stage of that strategy will lead to further growth and enhanced financial performance as ARAMEX continues its global expansion through acquisitions” added Ghandour.
