Dubai’s Union Properties 2013 profit soars eightfold
Real estate developer says net profit hit $430m
Union Properties, a Dubai-based real estate developer, said on Monday that its net profit jumped more than eightfold to 1.58 billion dirhams ($430.2 million) last year from 175.8 million dirhams in 2012.
The brief statement did not give a reason for the increase, but companies across Dubai’s property sector are booming as the real estate market recovers from its 2008-2010 crash.
The company also said it was recommending a 5 percent bonus share dividend to shareholders for 2013 in a separate statement to the Dubai stock exchange.
