Alpha Dhabi Reports $1.25 Billion in Net Profit in Q1 of 2024

Displaying continued momentum in the execution of its strategy axross key verticals, Alpha Dhabi Holding, one of the MENA region’s most rapidly expanding investment holding companies, and listed on Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), on Monday reported the Group’s net profit of $1.25 billion for Q1 of 2024.

With strong financial results across the Group, the first quarter of this year has been marked with a record revenue of $3.87 billion (11% increase y-o-y). The period also witnessed a stellar jump of 232% in net profit from operations, compared with Q1 in 2023. The Group also reported a 29% y-o-y increase in its cash balance to $5.86 billion.

Alpha Dhabi Holding’s Managing Director and CEO Hamad Al Ameri said that the company started 2024 in the same way as they finished 2023, by delivering strong performance and building on our relentless growth momentum.

“Our record revenue and net profit across our core operations reflect the pace at which we are moving to capture opportunities across our diversified portfolio and throughout the investment landscape. Fundamentally, we are primed to continue making investments that position us for future growth and that deliver meaningful impact across our vibrant economy,” he noted.

The strong performance in the quarter is attributed to a combination of factors, notably organic expansion across its portfolio and strategic acquisitions, underscoring the Group’s commitment to enhancing shareholder value. Alpha Dhabi’s diversified and agile portfolio has been a significant driver behind continued growth.

Total gains in the quarter at $544 million, were lower than corresponding period in 2023 when the group de-recognised Pure Health. The reduction in gains, together with the adoption of Corporation Tax in the UAE in 2024, contributed to a decrease in Group’s net profit, overall.

The Group’s financial position remains strong, boasting total assets of $40.13 billion as well as having equity of $21.51 billion. Alpha Dhabi is strategically poised to forge further ahead its growth ambitions which will include further possibilities for acquisitions and geographical diversification.

The diversity and depth of Alpha Dhabi’s increasing portfolio has been a significant driver of its revenue growth and contribution to the increase in net profit from operations. The company’s portfolios in industrial, real estate and construction contributed significantly, representing 37%, 33%, 18%, of the total revenue, respectively.
