Saudi Public Transport Co. (SAPTCO) narrowed net loss after Zakat and tax to SAR 1.6 million in H1 2022, from a loss of SAR 93.7 million in the prior-year period. 

The company said the decline in losses came as revenues rose due to the increase in transportation activities and Ramadan revenues, in addition to a decrease in the provision of trade receivables.  

The company also noted higher other revenues and financing income, along with a decrease in the joint venture losses. The previous period recorded higher reversal of impairment of assets held for sale. 

However, cost of revenues, selling and distribution expenses, general and administrative expenses, financing costs, and Zakat expenses increased year-on-year (YoY).
