Aramex reports revenue of AED 1.35 billion for Q3 2023


In the third quarter of 2023, Aramex maintained its performance with group revenue reaching AED 1.35 billion.

This represents a modest 5 percent year-on-year decline, attributed to currency fluctuations, macroeconomic challenges and subdued global retail activity in certain markets.

The quarter was testament to the company’s enduring resilience, as evidenced by a notable 4 per cent year-on-year increase in gross profit and resilient EBITDA of AED 134 million for Q3 2023. This progress was supported by company proactive measures to drive operational efficiency. and optimize the General and Administrative (GA) expenses of the organic business (excluding MyUS).

The Company reported a net profit of AED 9.6 million in the third quarter of 2023, a notable decrease from the AED 39.6 million recorded in the third quarter of 2022. More than half of the decline in net income can be attributed to interest expenses related to the acquisition of MyUS due to the sharp increase in interest rates since the transaction. Therefore, normalized net income, excluding currency impact and increased financial borrowing expenses, was AED 30.4 million in the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of 23 percent year-on-year.
