Element ListExplanation
The reason of the increase (decrease) in the net profit during the current quarter compared to the same quarter of the last year is Revenue increased by 8.7% versus Q2 2021. This was mainly attributable to the return of Ramadan season coupled with a combination of easing in certain pandemic restrictions for residents and the return of pilgrims for Umrah.

The gross profit reduced by 5.3% versus Q2 2021 due to the effect of marketing campaigns and loyalty program activities.

Operating expenses in Q2 2022 amounted to SAR 315.3 million versus SAR 284.4 million in Q2 2021. The year-on-year increase reflects the impact of new store openings, the transaction related expenses on International Applications Trading Company (“IATC”) & Ykone acquisitions and investment in human capital.

Net profit for Q2 2022 was SAR 42.3 million which is 55.5% lower than Q2 2021. The decrease was a direct reflection of the higher operating expenses and lower gross margins.

The reason of the increase (decrease) in the net profit during the current quarter compared to the previous quarter of the current year is Revenue increased by 3.9% in Q2 2022 versus Q1 2022 whereas, Gross profit decreased by 1.5% due to a drop in gross margin that was primarily related to Ramadan season, marketing campaigns and loyalty program activities.

The operating expenses for Q2 2022 increased by 0.8% as compared to Q1 2022 resulted from the opening of two new express stores during Q2 2022 and the transaction related expenses incurred on acquisition of IATC & Ykone.

Net profit of SAR 42.3 million declined significantly by 35.4% in comparison with the previous quarter due to a decline in gross margin by 1.5% and increased operating expenses due to reasons explained above.

The reason of the increase (decrease) in the net profit during the current period compared to the same period of the last year is Revenue increased by 6.6% year-on-year to SAR 2,396.1 million in H1 2022 as compared to SAR 2,247.2 million in H1 2021. Sales in the first half 2022 were mainly driven by BinDawood stores.

Furthermore, sales were supported by the return of Ramadan and Back to School seasons.

Gross profit declined by SAR 11 million due to the effect of marketing campaigns and loyalty program activities.

Operating expenses in H1 2022 amounted to SAR 628.1 million versus SAR 573 million in H1 2021. The increase is directly attributable to fixed and variable cost element of operating expenses that were higher due to new stores and costs associated with stores in the process of opening, costs related to the acquisition of IATC and Ykone by Future Retail for Information Technology Company (“FTR”) and an increase in general and administrative salaries to attract & retain best human talent.

The Company’s net profit reduced to SAR 107.8 million reflecting a decline of 31.4% in comparison with H1 2021 due to cumulative impact of a decline in gross profit and higher operating expenses.
