Anticipated Financial Impact of the New Extension
Jabal Omar anticipates the new extension will have a positive impact on its revenues for the current year.
This expectation is bolstered by last year’s record-breaking hospitality revenue, which nearly tripled to SR268 million ($71.46 million) in the first quarter of 2023, up from SR96 million during the same period the previous year.
This significant growth is primarily attributable to the company’s successful strategy of enhancing the performance of its commercial center portfolio.
The Power of Jabal Omar’s Cost-Control and Spending Strategies
In addition to improved hospitality revenue, Jabal Omar reported a substantial 241 percent increase in operating profits during the first quarter of 2023, reaching SR102 million.
This marked a significant shift from the operating losses of SR72 million recorded for the corresponding period in 2022.
This successful turnaround is credited to the company’s cost-control and spending strategies, which have proven effective in driving profitability. Jabal Omar which is one of Saudi Arabia’s largest real estate developers is also listed on the Saudi Tadawul Stock Exchange.
