Total operating income for the final quarter of 2014 was BHD 671,000 compared to BHD 3.5 million for the corresponding period in 2013. Net consolidated loss for the fourth quarter of 2014, which includes provisions for impairment of BHD 366,000, was BHD 1.4 million compared with BHD 1.6 million net profit for the same period in 2013.
Net consolidated profit for fiscal year 2014 increased by 11% to BHD 415 million, compared with BHD 4.9 million in 2013; while operating income grew by 16.4% to BHD 12.4 million from BHD 10.6 million the previous year.
