UAE-based developer Nakheel today announced a net profit of $683million for the first six months of 2018 down from the profit for the same period in 2017 ($710million).

Dubai-based Nakheel handed over 451 units to customers in the first six month of the year. The company’s non-development businesses – retail, leasing, hospitality and asset management – all performed strongly. Annual revenues from these sectors is now $710million – three times as much as in 2010 – and currently accounts for 38 per cent of the company’s total revenue. 

Revenue from these sectors will continue to grow with the completion of retail and hospitality projects such as The Pointe, due to open this year, and The Night Market, Warsan Souk, The Palm Tower and Nakheel Mall, which are due to come on line in 2019.
