Operating profits for the first nine months were SR250.8m ($66.9m) compared with SR215.7m ($57.5m) for the same period in 2011, an increase of 16.3%.
The reason behind the growth in the third quarter compared to the same period last year was due to increase in sales by 9.8%.
The reason behind the growth in the nine months compared to the same period last year was due to increase in sales by 7.8%. On the other hand, financial charges increased because of the higher cost of borrowing, in addition to the drop in Share of Associates Income due to the slowdown in business activity in India and devaluation of Indian Rupee.
The reason for decline in the third quarter compared to the second quarter of this year was due to decrease in sales by 4.7% since the third quarter coincides with the Holy month of Ramadan and summer vacation, which normally witnesses slower releasing to production and shipment at the request of customers.
Certain figures for the third quarter of 2011 have been reclassified to conform with the presentation in the current period.
