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 The increase in profits before Zakat and Income Tax for the quarter of SR 49,762K compared with same quarter the previous year was due to the following main reasons:

Policy acquisition costs also decreased during the quarter reaching SR 56,668K, a decrease of 58.6% from same quarter last year. The favorable variances in net claims incurred and policy acquisition costs were mainly driven by the Premium Deficiency Reserves (PDR) recognized during 2020.
