Dubai, UAE; February 14, 2024: Islamic Arab Insurance Company, listed as “SALAMA” on DFM, announced its preliminary results for the 2023 fiscal year. The company recorded insurance revenue of AED 1.11 billion in 2023, an increase by 20% from fiscal year 2022.

Total assets registered an increase at AED 3.70 billion in 2023, in comparison to AED 3.57 billion in 2022, showing an increase of AED 129.3 million. The net operating profit year-on-year has reduced by 13% to AED 101.64 million. SALAMA also reported a net loss of AED 43.45 million, largely due to goodwill impairment of AED 36.1 million on account of currency depreciation in Egypt. The net loss includes a one-time loss of AED 28.02 million on account of a legacy fire insurance claim for which reinsurance was not recovered. Excluding the impact of these two events, the company would have reported a profit AED 20.60 million.

In 2023, SALAMA continued to strive for growth with focused strategic objectives that included delivery of a vast number of customer-centric initiatives, strengthening of operational and digital capabilities and further consolidations of current portfolio.
