UAE-based master developer Nakheel has reported a 5% increase in net profit to $422m (AED1.55bn) for the first quarter of 2018, as compared to the corresponding period last year.

The developer attributes the results to the handover of several projects, including the hand over of nearly 200 land and built form units to customers during Q1 2018, as well as the sale of all 934 homes its new Warsan Village community.
