Element EXPLAINATION
Reasons of increase (decrease) for the quarter compared with same quarter last year The increased loss for the three (3) month period ended 31st March 2014, versus the same period of 2013, was mainly due to an increase in Selling & Marketing expenses driven by growth (commissions and levies increased by a combined SR24,008K and bad debt provision expense was adverse by SR7,383K). The remaining operating expense increase was due to staff and infrastructure related costs to support the growth. Total investment income for the period decreased by SR7,896K.
