The increase in net profit during the current quarter was attributed by the company to the increase of sales due to the improved production and average selling prices, as well as to the decrease in general and administrative expenses, increase in other income and decrease in Zakat expenses.

 

Meanwhile, financial results for the first nine months of 2018 showed SAR 929 million, compared with SAR 497 million in the same period a year ago.
