Element ListExplanation
The reason of the increase (decrease) in the sales/ revenues during the current year compared to the last year The Group reported Revenues of SAR 26.8 billion during the year ended 31 December 2023 compared to SAR 28.1 billion for last year, showing a 4% decline primarily due to drop in the revenues of the Food Processing segment due to lower crude edible oil prices, foreign exchange devaluation in certain overseas markets, disposal of investment in Savola Morocco Company and temporary suspension of operations in Republic of Sudan because of the ongoing conflict. The decline in revenue during 2023 was despite higher revenue reported in the Retail segment.
The reason of the increase (decrease) in the net profit during the current year compared to the last year is The Group recorded net profit for the year ended 31 December 2023 amounting to SAR 899 million versus net profit of SAR 743 million for last year showing a 21% increase.

The increase in net profit is mainly attributed to the following:

- Increase in gross profit reported in the Food Processing, Retail and Frozen Foods segments;

- Higher share of profits from associates;

- Net impairment reversal amounting to SAR 111.9 million during 2023 for certain non-current assets mainly in the Foods Processing and Retail segments. Net impairment reversal during 2022 amounting to SAR 65.2 million for certain non-current assets mainly in the Foods Processing, Retail and Food Services segments; and

- Refund of custom duty from regulatory authority in KSA having a net impact of SAR 23.3 million.

The increase in net profit is despite the following:

- Capital gain on disposal of investments/operations amounting to SAR 18.7 million during 2023 which is lower than the capital gain on disposal of investments during 2022 amounting to SAR 41.8 million;

- Higher net finance cost;

- Higher operating expenses; and

- Higher zakat and income tax expense.

The Retail segment achieved operational breakeven for the year ended 31 December 2023.
