The firm has posted group revenue of OMR2.59 billion (USD6.7 billion), an increase of 18.6% from OMR2.18 billion a year earlier, of which domestic operations contributed OMR554.3 million in 2019, compared to OMR546.0 million twelve months previously. Group EBITDA rose by 28.5% year-on-year to OMR1.09 billion in 2019, while net profit grew from OMR208.8 million to OMR299.7 million over the same period. Domestic net profit dropped 11.6% year-on-year to OMR79.0 million, mainly due to a reduction in mobile pre-paid revenue and Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRU) capacity sales.
