Dubai: Gulf Navigation Holding (GNH) announced its financial results for 2017 achieving 7 per cent increase compared to 2016 with a gross profit of Dhs49 million. This achievement comes as a result of the company’s vision and efficient strategic plans set to position Gulf Navigation as one of the largest integrated marine services provider in the region.

This announcement declares Gulf Navigation Holding gross profit for 2017 that reached Dhs49 million with an increase of 7 per cent compared to 2016 that concluded with a gross profit of Dhs45.8 million. During 2016, the company has successfully managed to pay and reschedule all its financial debts and to solve legal issues through financial allocations, which positively reflected on the company’s net profit in 2016 of Dhs136,573 million compared to Dhs40.7 achieved in 2017 as result of returning these financial allocations. In addition, the company added two new petrochemical carriers to its fleet which contributed in increasing its assets value by 12 per cent to reach Dhs1,076 billion compared to Dhs959 billion in 2016, with a total increase of Dhs117 million. This progress significantly contributed in enhancing the company’s revenues gained from shipping the petrochemicals and petroleum derivatives, as well as expanding the company’s presence in various markets. On the another side, the company has successfully managed to reduce its operating expenses by Dhs5.5 million during 2017 through internal restructuring in order to achieve the highest level of operational and commercial efficiency at the lowest cost.

Commenting on the company’s financial progress, Khamis Juma Buamim, Board Member, Managing Director and Group CEO of Gulf Navigation Holding Group said, “The shipping and marine services sector in our region is ultimately promising for those who know how to benefit from it and who have the experience to establish a well-planned strategy to invest in this industry with its numerous opportunities. We are proud to be a success story because we are the first and the only shipping company listed in Dubai Financial Market and we are committed to contribute to the national economy diversification. We attribute our success and achievements to the constant support and guidance from our Board of Directors who sustains our strategic plans that aim at achieving greater revenues for our shareholders and strategic partners. Moreover, we would like to extend our appreciation to TABARAK Investment and major shareholders for their trust in our ability to achieve more success.”
