Emaar achieved its highest ever quarterly group property sales in Q1 2024 of Dhs 13.5 billion, reflecting a robust 47% growth compared to Q1 2023. Supported by incremental property sales, Emaar’s revenue backlog from property sales reached AED 78.3 billion (US$ 21.3 billion) as of March 2024, growing by 9% from December 2023. This backlog represents future revenue from property sales to be recognised over the next 4-5 years.

Emaar’s recorded revenues of Dhs6.7 billion and net profit before tax of Dhs 4.3 billion which grew by 16% compared to the same period last year. The improved performance was driven by the growth in tourism, retail sales, and sustained real estate demand in Dubai.

We are driven by a clear strategy and a pragmatic approach to business, ensuring we add more value for our stakeholders. Our confidence in executing our business plans remains high, and we continue to play a crucial role in the economic landscape of Dubai and beyond.”
