In addition to approving dividend distribution, participants also appointed auditors for the current financial year.
Mohammed Al Qadi, managing director and chief executive officer of RAK Properties, said: “Through the hard work of our partners and the unwavering support of our stakeholders, we emerged from 2016 reporting positive end-of-year results.
“The company achieved revenues in excess of $106m (AED390m) in 2016 – a year-on-year increase of 5.98%, [compared to] the $100.2m (AED368m) accrued in 2015.
“We also posted a consolidated net profit of $47.6m (AED175m), providing us with balanced financial leverage to march forward with our ongoing developments, while strategically positioning us to pursue new vistas of growth,” Al Qadi added.
Earlier this year, RAK Properties revealed details of its newest project within Mina Al Arab, an 81ha island that is to be developed through an investment of $1.36bn (AED5bn).
Construction works have also commenced on the company’s two planned resorts: the 306-key Anantara Mina Al Arab, Ras Al Khaimah; and the 350-key InterContinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort.
