Revenues stood at AED 18.86 billion, a notable improvement from AED 18 billion in H1-22, supported by robust results from its Dubai development project, Tilal Al Ghaf.
  • Additionally, Majid Al Futtaim's strategic move to transfer its online grocery operations and other businesses to its subsidiary, Majid Al Futtaim Holding, on January 1, 2023, contributed to the company's overall growth trajectory. The report noted that UAE consumers increased their spending across various channels, including malls, shops, and online platforms, defying earlier forecasts of caution at the start of the year. A significant portion of this increased spending was reflected in the company's improved margin of 11.4% compared to 9.2%, attributed to enhanced EBITDA margins.
