Revenue in the first half of the year climbed 10 percent year-on-year to AED 13.56 billion. On the other hand, EBITDA increased by 66 percent year-on-year to AED 6.112 billion on higher income amid improved margins and continued cost optimization.

Earlier, Emaar Properties announced buying out the stake of Dubai Holding, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s investment vehicle, in their Dubai Creek Harbour joint venture for AED 7.5 billion, making Dubai’s ruler the second-largest shareholder in the company.
