ABU DHABI: The shareholders of National Central Cooling Company, Tabreed, on Thursday approved a dividend of 8 fils per share for the financial year 2017. This represents a 23% increase on the dividend paid out in 2016, driven by the company’s robust performance in 2017.

The dividend was approved by the shareholders at the company’s Annual General Assembly, which was chaired by Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi, Tabreed’s Chairman, and attended by Tabreed’s Board of Directors, shareholders, and the company’s senior leadership team.

Commenting on the full year performance and outlook, Khaled Abdulla Al Qubaisi, Tabreed’s Chairman, said,”Tabreed delivered another year of strong results and net profit growth in 2017, driven by added capacity. This in turn enabled us to deliver a 23% increase in cash dividend per share. In the coming year, we look forward to continue delivering growth and stable returns to our shareholders, as we harness our expertise and capabilities of our major shareholders to meet the region’s growing cooling needs.” Last month, Tabreed released its audited financial results for 2017, which showed a robust 9% net profit increase to reach Dhs400 million. The increase was mainly due to the addition by Tabreed of 43,900 RT to its existing cooling capacity during the year through projects across the region, building on Tabreed’s established presence in the GCC.

Addressing Tabreed’s shareholders earlier at the meeting, Jasim Husain Thabet, Tabreed’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “As we mark our 20-year milestone this year, we are proud of our track record, which has led us to become the region’s leading district cooling company, providing nearly 1.1 million refrigeration tonnes of cooling capacity to our customers. Our growth underscores our commitment to delivering high quality reliable and efficient solutions, while maintaining a healthy financial position and enhancing shareholder value with sustained and stable returns.” Tabreed is a partner of choice for organizations across the GCC in providing environmentally friendly district cooling solutions that support the region’s energy sustainability. With 72 district cooling plants located throughout the region, Tabreed currently delivers nearly 1.1 million refrigeration tonnes of cooling to key developments in the region including iconic infrastructure projects such as Abu Dhabi’s Al Maryah Island, Yas Island, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Dubai Metro, Dubai Parks and Resorts, and the Jabal Omar Development in the Holy City of Mecca, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
