Dubai property giant Emaar profits surge on high sales

Dubai construction giant Emaar Properties posted a sharp rise in third quarter profits Sunday as residential sales in the glitzy emirate gathered steam.

Dubai has started recovering from a three year downturn after a 2014 oil price crash slammed the Gulf economies which underpin its real estate sector.

But on Sunday Emaar, which owns the world’s tallest tower, Burj Khalifa, chalked up a $411 million (350 million euro) net profit for the third quarter, up 32 per cent on the same period of 2016.

“The impressive growth in sales of our Dubai residential property launches this year puts us in a strong position to generate strong cash flows for the coming years,” Emaar chairman Mohamed Alabbar said.

“The sustained demand for projects in Dubai is a strong indicator of the investor trust in Dubai, which is today one of the fastest-growing hubs for business and leisure.”

Officials and analysts say preparations for the emirate’s six-month Expo 2020 trade fair have breathed new life into the sector, battered by low demand and sluggish growth.

Sales of properties in Dubai rose rapidly in the years after the market opened to foreigners in 2002.

Prices soared as investors piled in, but when the global financial crisis hit the debt-laden emirate in 2009, it sent them into free-fall.
