Results of Fourth Quarter - 2018
We reported our results for the first three months of 2018 Business operating profit down 11 percent from the prior year, and net income attributable to shareholders was down 9 percent from the prior year. More information on our strategic progress and priorities will be made available at the final investors meet shortly, when we will update shareholders and analysts. Even though Dubai is a potential market for Logistics, current regional expenses and its related inflation have limited us to achieve the growth that we projected during the start of 2018. With such limited results for the first quarter, we are prepared to face more challenging two years ahead us, before 2021.
To meet our goals and objectives for 2019, we need to continue to focus on our strategic priorities, with a particular focus on improving operational efficiency and effectiveness.
While there is still much work to be done, we are moving forward with our strategy for 2018 to 2021, delivering on every key sectors. This is truly a positive result for this Financial year. Ahead of the Expo 2020, our main focus is to grow our operating earnings. We are pleased to announce that we have completed much of our ground work and executed our strategy in terms of filtering key segments of this growing Gulf market and taking out unnecessary costs which attributed to less profits for the Financial year, 2018. We are seeing some good progress with turning around or exiting under-performing businesses.
Our business strategy 2017-2021 is inline with our Vision. This new chapter of our strategy is about focusing on our strengths as a global shipping company by identifying prospective sectors and customer segments where we see strong potential for growth.
